A relative new stall here, one can either take the set meal or pick ingredients (counted by weight, usual mala Market price of 1-3 bucks per 100g)

As a mala this is generally milder (which is good for me), all the flavours present, working together, moist and flavoured with the mala oil but not too oily. Ingredients were also cooked well; mushrooms were juicy, etc

Things to be improved would be the beancurd skin could be cooked a little longer

$4.50 for small (enough for 1 person meal)

Very warm and comforting bowl of Noodle soup. The lor mee is nice and chewy, and the soup is thickened with corn starch, and gooey. Nothing particularly exciting about it, but something i would eat (or have eaten) again

A pleasant, simple and humble dish.

Heng hua is a hidden gem nestled among some HDB flats at the back of Yishun mrt, serving Putien (place in China) food.

Their Stewed tofu featured minced up tofu with a mixture of root vegetables, mince meat and finished off with egg. It was very comforting and warm, and the flavours of the tofu and veges worked well together. I would say the dish itself is a bit bland, but that's intended and fitting given the flavour profile of the dish. It works to bring out the nature flavours of the tofu.

One of their signature dishes, a definite must try if you eat here.

Overall very enjoyable dish. The chicken pieces were tender, and smooth with some cornstarch on the surface, but not excessive that it loses the bite. The sauce was well made, with the savoriness of soy sauce with a fragrant sesame oil taste.

Very affordable as well, costs about 5 bucks for a small portion

老王(lau Wang) claypot delights has enjoyed some fame serving up affordable claypot dishes in the area. If I am not wrong, there are other branches as well.

One of their specialty is their Brinjal. Very homely taste, nicely balanced dish of savouriness of the sauce with the sweet gooey eggplant. Very good with rice as well. The other side veggies with the dish, liek the onions were also nicely caramelised with the raw edge taken off

Price of a small pot is about 5 bucks which is a steal.

Very enjoyable meal. The chilli oil bringing forth the umami and spiciness from Broad bean sauce and dried chillis. There was little to no numbing flavour from the typical mala, good for those who don't like that part of mala

The fish was well seasoned and grilled prior, giving a nice smoky flavour. The oils of the fish were also nicely rendered and added to the fragrance that would not have been achieved by just cooking the fish in the broth.

The sides of Chinese long cabbage and potatoes did a great job absorbing all the flavours. Overall an excellent meal. Was so spicy but yet addictive giving a masochistic pleasure bite after bite

The sauce and marinade is nice, but I was very disappointed that the pork was really tough and dry. It was so tough at parts that I had problems chewing through it. Maybe it is cos it was not freshly roasted, but then again other char siew places don't have that problem.

One of the, if not the best mala Xiang guo in sg. This is perfect for those who dislike a strong cumin taste. The numbing feeling from the sze chuan peppercorns make it more palatable to the newly converted mala fans

Mind blowing Hokkien mee!

As a self professed Hokkien mee connoisseur, and having eaten at countless Hokkien mee stalls, I am very particular on my Hokkien mee. This Hokkien mee is one of, if not the most well executed Hokkien mee in Singapore. The noodles were prefried well with adequate "wok hei" before being simmered in a very well made prawn broth. The right amount of starch was released from the noodles, and the entire dish had a very good balance. The ratio of yellow noodle to thick beehoon is higher than most places, giving a starchier, richer but more alkaline flavour, similar to claypot noodles, which isn't a bad thing.

Hokkien mee stalls tend to be inconsistent as each batch may differ in frying times and technique, but you are be sure that you will get a good plate from this place.

About $16, limited time only item, quite affordable given they give an entire lamb shank. The meat was fall off the bone tender, sauce complimented the meat well as well. The sides were decent, didn't increase or decrease my impression of the dish as a whole. Despite it being from a buffet line (IKEA) style it was plated pretty nicely and was aesthetically pleasing too

Costs $10 but used Burpple Beyond's 1 for 1

Was really impressed by this. Pork chop was cooked just right, with just a very slight tinge of pink in the middle (relax that's fine). The pork was moist on the inside, and crispy on the outside. Amazing dish. One thing that could be done better would be to change the sauce at the side, perhaps to a sweet soy based sauce (or even plum sauce), because the mayo sauce they provided did not go well with the pork.
