Had higher hopes for this, but the rice was a bit mushy, and the ingredients were lacklustre bc the textures were v one dimensional. The meatball was the nicest out of everything in the bowl. Might have been an off day for them so I may try it once more??

Porridge was decent but we felt that it could be cooked for a little longer. The ccf skin was nice but the egg didn’t rly do much, and the prawn was so small my meal bud was like ‘where’s the prawn’ bc it wasn’t noticeable!

Soup was peppery and hot on initial taste, and mellowed into a more rounded flavour. The meat however, was rather dry/tough, and perhaps only the spare rib in the $9.80 option & 1 piece of the other type of meat was passable.

The service left much to be desired. We were v thirsty from our run, and asked for some warm water. It took a ridiculous amount of time for the water to come. We went over to check if we could just serve ourselves (the jug was just right there), and the waiter said that the water would be coming soon (but no it didn’t). And when it finally did come, they served it in a plastic cup with a plastic straw (??!!). Okay the plastic issue is something management has to look into, so can’t help that until they change their SOPs, but I can’t understand how water can take so long to be served.

Honestly this place is ~okay~ but I wouldn’t come back, my first (and probably last) visit left a bad impression.

I LOVE LFD!!!!!! Was an absolute treat to celebrate the end of exams :”) loved the noodles the duck the charsiew AND the soup too!!!!! All super flavourful and never fails to disappoint! Shout out to the roast duck bun too

Another staple in our dimsum meals. The pork is done very nicely, and I’m not sure how to describe it so just go try it for urself haha :p I have a weak spot for these kinds of youtiaos which are super fried and so crunchy! -W

The salted egg filling in the lsb was savoury but not too cloying; imperial’s version of lsb is quite up there to me. In terms of the filling of the csb, if I were to compare to timhowan’s baked csb, this would have lost. But still enjoyable. THE MLG!! was a surprise find!! Light, fluffy, and had a pleasant mild sweet taste (like molasses). I love it, it will be added into the staples list :) -W
