Was quite apprehensive about dining here, as I had read the earlier mixed reviews. Interestingly, the eatery is halal despite featuring strong Chinese flavours. I’m really happy to say that Delibowl seems to have improved lots since its opening, and proved to be a good choice! Claimed the burpple beyond 1-for-1 deal for their whole day set ($10.90): each comes with one soup of the day, one side dish and one main. Between the two of us, we got their kampong chicken soup and tomato egg soup. Both were on the saltier side, but had plenty of ingredients inside. My only gripe is that the soup wasn’t hot when served! For the side dishes, we tried the tofu and cucumber - both are served in the same savoury sauce, which is largely salty with the barest tinge of spice. Enjoyed the cucumber more as it helped to break up the otherwise heavy flavour. The beef brisket came highly recommended, but I wasn’t a big fan as I found the stew too starchy and sweet. The portion of beef was generous and there were slices of tomato included. The butter chicken, on the other hand, was a big hit - the portion was huuuge, with tender battered chicken pieces coated in a thick sauce and served with onions & curry leaves. Really enjoyed the chicken and will be back for it again!!

Swung by for a late dinner on a rainy day! This Teochew porridge is a perennial favourite and a good choice any time. We had braised duck, cui rou, qing cai and tau kee with two bowls of porridge ($17.20 for two). Love the traditional style of cooking and the strong flavours that are balanced by the warm watery rice. Portion was really filling!!

I’m a big fan of the peppery soup version, and Song Fa definitely hits all the right spots! The pork rib soup ($7.60++, small) had 3 pieces, each with tender meat and not too fatty. Best part is that the restaurant offers unlimited refills, which definitely satisfies all your cravings! The spicy pork belly ($8.30++) was thinly sliced and served with a thick gravy, ladies finger and dried chilli! Loved that it came in a claypot and that it packed a punch. Lastly, the xiao bai cai ($6.20++, medium) exceeded our expectations both in taste and portion.

The Armoury Burger ($23) comprises two wagyu patties, bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato. The bacon added a dash of savouriness but the beef was a tad dry, with a flavour that was not distinct. The sauce tasted like thousand island! The bun was pretty dense but well buttered, and the fries sprinkled with paprika. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to the hype of being a namesake burger.

Was very excited for my first visit at DD after its hype! I had to wait ~40 min for a table during the weekday lunch crowd, but their lunch set ($16++) is a definite steal. It comprises a bowl of noodles ($5-6++), a plate of dumplings ($7-8++) and a drink ($6++). I had the braised pork noodles, which were springy and tossed in a tasty sauce. The pork was shredded rather than minced, and with a sweet tinge. The spicy Sichuan dumplings came soaked in chilli oil and vinegar! They were filled with mince pork and some vegetable. The skin had a good bite without being too thick, and I liked that there was a variety of flavour in each bite. The logan osmanthus pu’erh had a distinct tea taste with subtle floral notes - I particularly liked the small bits of jelly inside! Will definitely be back soon.
