I found this plate of hokkien mee quite underwhelming, and wonder what it is that makes it so popular amongst diners here. There were much more yellow noodles than bee hoon so the alkaline taste was quite strong. The stock also lacked umami, possibly because of the omission of pork. I think this is quite pricey for very average hokkien mee (maybe even below average for me).

The vegetables are cooked through so it is very soft, so it is good that the curry gravy is milder than the other dishes' gravy to complement the the veges. Very healthy-tasting though obviously it isn't. 😝

(Note: This picture shows 2 portions!)

WOW. This has become my favourite beef rendang of all-time. The beef is sooo tender and rendang so lemak. I could eat this all day.

The fish was tasty and the assam sauce addictive, but the portion is a little bit small to properly satiate. A good side dish, though!

I had really high expectations for the coin prata as I have read so many reviews raving about it. However, it didn't quite blow my mind. Yes, the prata coins are very crisp but I didn't find the insides fluffy as described by others. It was really quite ordinary, and I much prefer their normal roti prata.

The cajun chicken was quite thin, and the cajun flavour was not as prominent as I usually like. That said, it was a good accompaniment to the soba. The buckwheat soba noodles were really delicious, though I must say that the teriyaki sauce they add to it is very sweet! Would personally prefer soba sauce instead, and will make sure to specify that the next time I order.

Listed in the Singapore Michelin Guide with a "Michelin Plate", I only found out that this store makes their popiah skin by hand after my visit. This explains the stellar quality of popiah here. The generous serving of deep-fried crunchy bits provided a nice contrast to the otherwise soft popiah skin and sweet sauce. However, I find that the taste of garlic is quite heavy.

Unlike other traditional kaya toasts, the toast here was more soft-and-fluffy rather than thin-and-crisp. The charcoal marks on the bread added to the visual appeal though. That said, I am fully on-board this variarion of kaya toast because the combination of the soft white bread, sweet kaya and cold slab of butter just works. It doesn't sound super appetising but you really just have to try it for yourself!!

Impossibly soft and chewy muah chee tossed in a mixture of ground peanuts, black sesame and sugar. I appreciated that it was not too sweet as well!

I have nothing but praise for this prata - so simple-looking but so incredibly executed! It was crisp and doughy in just the right places. The curry that accompanied it was also really good - it was actually decently spicy and thick. I really enjoyed each bite of my curry-soaked prata. 😋

I was a bit apprehensive to order the curry chicken initially, as I was afraid it would be a really small portion like other Indian food stalls I patronized before. Hence, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the portion of chicken served was rather HEFTY. I had at least half a breast and a wing - that is a win for me! The chicken was cooked just nice as well, nothing too tough or powdery here. I will definitely order this combination again the next time I am here.

This was my portion of soup scooped out from the bigger bowl, which contained 8 fat dumplings in a huge pot of soup. I enjoyed the dumplings though I wouldn't say they particularly stand-out from other dumplings I've had at such chicken rice joints. The soup was also regrettably over-salted for me.

This came quite highly recommended by our waitress, but I didn't find it too spectacular. The char siew tasted oddly a lot like lup cheong (chinese sausage) which I enjoyed, but it was nonetheless odd. On the other hand, the roast pork was too dry and tough for my liking. I would give this a miss the next time.
