This was quite nice, and the price after 1-4-1 is reasonable. Noodles were rather springy and went well with the tasty savoury sauce, which wasn’t too salty. Pork slices were ~70% lean 30% fat - they weren’t dry and had some char, but nothing outstanding either. The bowl was rounded up with a truffle onsen egg, blanched kailan, crab meat (this didn’t really add value I feel), and topped with garlic crisps. Overall a pretty decent bowl of noodles, would return for this!

The plain ccf was soft but retained a bite, and was delicious with the peanut + sweet sauce + soya sauce combo. The dumpling noodles were rather decent, with springy noodles and tasty dumplings. The zhong zi was not bad as well!

The grain dumpling was delicious, with a nice natural sweetness to it. The corn and the various grains gave textural variation which I liked, and it felt rather light on the palate. In hindsight, it kinda felt like a zhng-ed up QQ rice. The Cantonese pork dumpling was great as well, but the grain dumpling definitely was a surprising find.

We ordered these with “egg noodles”, which we did not realise was instant noodles. The sauce was average, but the addition of the shallots + scallions gave it more flavour. We enjoyed the homemade wantons which was plump and juicy, filled with minced meat and chives. Would probably revisit to try their you mian, but definitely not going to opt for egg noodles again.

Peach garden’s bento box with a variety of food!!! V enjoyable to be able to pick and choose and try different dimsums and dishes! Sadly while it’s worth it, the quality wasn’t as expected and it was quite meh :-( the beehoon tasted nothing ordinary and there was only one prawn for the salted egg prawn dish :-( would still give the other dishes a shot the next time if I do order! Comes w a dessert/fruit too!

Paid $12.50 for this portion (for 2!) one of the most-worth place for MLXG, got 中辣 which was pretty spicy but still enjoyed the meal a lot a lot!

This is a good charsiew bao - soft, fluffy with charsiew that had a nice balance of savoury and sweet. The truffle was present but not too overpowering!

Sweechoon is a good place for decent dimsum - not the best, but it manages to satisfy. Their lotus pau, charsiew pau were a little on the sweet side but still decent, and we like the soft and chewy CCF. The meesua kueh was interesting, similar to carrot cake but the meesua strands provide a nice texture. The red bean pancake was soggy by the time it arrived, so have it in-store rather than for takeaway.

Haven’t tried the zichar section of their menu before, and after having it I definitely wouldn’t order their zichar dishes again.

The wanton wrapper is made from pork meat. It’s very thin, something unique that I haven’t tried before! The wantons and soup are flavourful. It’s a small bowl, so it’s a good appetiser.

Each plump rice grain is coated with egg, making for a delicious fried rice. It’s simple and delicious, definitely a must-order dish!

I love putien’s xinghua beehoon! The noodles are thin and not clumpy, with a great fluffy texture. It’s a flavourful and delicious dish, a must-order when we visit. The crunchy peanuts and seaweed topping are nice additions.

The collagen soup here is really good, even better than hdl’s! I also liked the thin noodles served here. Personally, there’s not much of a difference between hdl and bitp. Both offer a good hotpot experience.
