Ordered delivery during Phase 2. Even after taking into consideration the decrease in quality for not consuming immediately after it’s prepared, the bowl was pretty good, with all the ingredients of above average quality: ramen, dumplings, prawn fritters, char siew. We also ordered dumplings soup. Would we go back? Probably not. It’s good, but not sufficiently great to justify the long queue. We would just satisfy ourselves with nearby ‘I Want My Noodles’ - same same quality lah.

They have added a few new dishes recently. Mainly braised stuff. Most people still come for the delish BKT. Very efficient service, helped by high tech ordering system that actually works!

One of the best Nasi lemaks I’ve had. Fragrant blue rice, rendang, juicy fried chicken, crayfish, and three types of sambal. The waiter is quite blurred, but he’s so sweet it’s forgiven.

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.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
