Fantastic dining experience and you can’t go wrong if you stick to the signature dishes. Standouts for me were the double roasted pork with chilli padi, Thai style fried chicken and sambal kangkong. Be prepared for long queues if you don’t have a reservation.

Famous nyona kuih shop tucked away in a nondescript alley. You can find a variety of nyona snacks here and my favourites were the kuih talam, pulut inti and kuih bengka ubi.

This stall serves both hokkien mee and lor mee. The hokkien mee comes with a spoonful of chilli which really enhances the taste of the rich broth. Normally a big lor mee but enjoyed this version which is relatively light and not as starchy.

This is one of those dishes which will transport you back in time and make you wonder why you can’t find places like this in Singapore anymore. Rich pork based soup which can be ordered with your choice of noodle/porridge and with just minced pork or a variety of spare parts (from the more common kidney and liver to pig brains). We came back here a second time in as many days cos it was simply that good.

Recommended by our grab driver, the duck blood curry mee is fabulous. Served with chucks of duck blood, prawns, cuttlefish and taupok, this was a surprisingly good find. The duck blood had an interesting gelatinous texture and is something I would recommend trying. Don’t forget to order the Penang fried kway teow here. It may not be as well-known but was one of the best we had on this trip.
