Still serves the most springy noodles in SG. The various combos are all yummy - with delish char siew, roast pork or soup. Service is still extremely casual. On a recent visit, we were shocked that the bak chor mee landed on the table within 10 seconds of my ordering and paying (here, you prepay, and they don’t take C cards). It turned out it was an order by another table. Good thing we didn’t touch the bowl of noodles, preferring to wait for the other orders to come. Because a full 10 minutes afterwards, the service staff came back, took the bowl and brought it to the correct table.

If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, this is not a bad place to go to. Decent food, efficient service, and reasonable prices (except for a few ridiculously-priced, gimmicky dishes). However, we’ve all had better Assam Laksa, char kway teow, etc.

This is almost a cult. In spite of limited parking, people come from far away to eat or for takeaways (do call and order in advance). Kampong chicken tends to be leaner, and the one here has attractive-looking yellow skin. Otherwise, it tastes the same as the chicken at Five Star Kampong Chicken at River Valley (which is better organised). The chilli and ginger sauces are super yummy, and the chicken liver perfectly cooked. The chicken rice is not oily, but would gain from being more fragrant.

A real hidden gem: delicious homely dishes at extremely reasonable prices in a cute environment. Let the classy Ms Tammie Loke advise you on what to eat, but you shouldn’t miss the signature char siew, the mushroom stew in broth, ngoh hiang, tofu (various dishes), and noodles. Street parking can be frustrating in this area. Fortunately, there’s always ample parking at Mak Plaza or Sultan Plaza across the street.

Given all the noise about the restaurant and the chef, the actual experience was a letdown. Only two out of our eight dishes were good - the wagyu beef and the octopus risotto. Other dishes are just so-so, and tend to be too sweet. In spite of the focus on noodles, our noodle of the week dish was surprisingly mediocre; ‘I want my noodles’ at Shaw Centre is much, much more satisfying. Service staff make a touching effort to please, but are forgetful and not proactive. After the 25% Entertainer discount, the exorbitantly-priced meal became just expensive at $80 per head. There are better ModSing restaurants here, like Labyrinth, or the now-defunct Creatures.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
