Enjoyed the wagyu beef set ($49.99) and the pork collar (not pictured) ordered using Burpple Beyond, with the tang hoon. I didn’t count, but I think it was at least eight pieces of wagyu beef and pork collar each? Meat was tender. There was a decent spread of veggies, mushroom, beancurd items. The mala soup base is tasty and spicy. In contrast, the herbal chicken soup base was flat and bitter. Was hungry before dinner and usually eat big portions, but struggled to finish this! Friend had the bak kut teh soup base, which is extremely peppery, and enjoyed the sour tom yum soup base.

Don’t think I’d order the wagyu beef set again without 1-for-1 as $49.99 is quite steep. But worth coming back for their more affordable sets.

Dumpling Darlings dishes out QQ noodles with unusual dumplings and drink lunch sets for an affordable $16++ (even better with Burpple Beyond yo). Opted for the miso mushroom noodles + fried pierogi + longan osmanthus pu-erh. The miso mushroom noodles taste like the atas version of noodles you’d find at a coffeeshop, with a massive heap of fried onions and spring onions with every bite. Enjoyed the noodles’ springiness, but the rest really depends on how much you like the toppings. Fried pierogi stole the show with the savoury goodness of smooth truffle potato and bacon, while the drink grew on me with each sip. Saw them smashing up an actual piece of osmanthus jelly during drink prep!

* Come before 11.45am latest to snag a seat before the queue gets crazy. Was a cosy place despite the crowd and chatter.
* Tried my friend’s Sichuan dumpling and found it underwhelming. The sauce looked like chilli vinaigrette but was sweet, and drowned the taste of the meat.
