Note: Expect to wait at least 10min for their souffle pancakes

First time trying souffle pancakes and definitely did not disappoint. I love how it just melts in your mouth. Batter was slightly eggy but not complaining. Firm on the outside whilst light and creamy on the inside, probably the lightest thing I've ever eaten.
Price: 9.5/10
Taste: 8.5 (Without comparing to other souffle pancakes, it is really simple, satisfying and delicious as it is)
Overall: 9/10 (Must-try if in the area, especially since the next most affordable one is probably 2x more expensive)

My dining companion actually commented that they used to had more mushrooms and dried shrimps in their filling. Similar to @ieatishootipost's review though, their skin is indeed not sticky or gooey, but thick and chewy. It goes really well with their sambal chili. No ratings as I'm not entirely sure what makes a good crystal dumpling/shui jing pau.

Stew Beef & Tendon Fire-pot ($8)
Apart from the beef and tendon, sliced radish, carrots and celery are added as well. The stew was flavourful, rich and had a thick consistency. While the tendon was on the softer side, without much bite/chew to it, the beef was generally very tender. Overall, this is a great dish to warm you up on a rainy day and will go very well with a bowl of rice. (Additional $0.50)
Taste: 9/10 (Very comforting and satisfying)

(Part 2 of 2)
I've no regrets ordering this again as I feel that they've managed to balance the sourness and spiciness of this dish. The wanton skins are also silky and paper-thin, barely wrapping the generous portions of meat within.
Taste: 9/10 (Will gladly come back for this as well)

(Part 1 of 2)
I've actually ordered from this stall before, trying their pan-fried dumplings ($6 for 10) and XLB ($5 for 7) as well. However, their most memorable dish previously were their szechuan spicy wanton ($5 for 10). Hence, ordered that this time together with their Zha Jiang Mian / La Mian with Fried Bean Sauce ($3.50) to try.

This was very flavourful with huge chunks of meat and firm springy noodles. Tasted a hint of parsley at times as well. Do add their chili sauce which helps to cut through the rich but greasy minced meat drenched in bean sauce. The portion is quite decent as well for the price.
Taste: 9/10 (Really love this, will order again)
Price: 8.5/10
Overall: 9/10 (Must-try from this stall)
