A mix of mee sua and beehoon in a thick starchy broth. Its similar to Putien's signature lor mee, just with thinner noodles. The thick broth got rather jelat and I would have preferred more ingredients and less noodles.

Bak chor mee with mee pok. Decent bowl of noodles, satisfactory but not spectacular in taste. Generous portion of ingredients. I liked the addition of the crispy fried stuffed beancurd. Also liked the vinegary gravy.

Compared to the lor mee, I like this much better. It is soupier and less starchy, and filled with ingredients like beancurd, dried scallops, egg, mushrooms, pork slices, bamboo shoots and spring onions. Soup has a delicious eggy taste. The mee sua doesn't soak up the soup too much, so even after delivery, the noodles are not soggy and the soup is intact. The condiments on the side complimented the dish well.

This is Wan He Lou's signature dish and it is absolutely delicious. The star of the dish is the rich yellow broth – I've no idea what is in it but I couldn't get enough of it. The two small lobsters were firm and fresh. There's lots of rice in this too, and I reckon it could feed 2-3 people.

Putin's signature dish, this lor mee is a bowl of u-mian in a starchy white sauce, with vegetables, clams, little pieces of pork belly, beancurd, and a few prawns. I would have preferred more ingredients and less noodles, but for the price it's a reasonable bowl of comfort food.

Don't underestimate this humble-looking dish. This isn't just lettuce, it's cold, fresh, very crunchy lettuce that refreshes you and is delightful to chew on. The roasted sesame sauce for dipping is a perfect and all-round popular companion.

Huge slab of firmly scrambled eggs, topped with a generous amount of melted cheese, on a thick fluffy slice of white bread. This was super satisfying. I loved it that they offered kailan as a side at just $3, which was crunchy and well-cooked. Great food at great prices. The only downside is that indoor seating is limited, and the outdoor area can get very warm.

This is mee pok with bean sprouts, shimeiji mushrooms and truffle oil. The mee pok is smooth and the ingredients combine into a delicious and fragrant dish. The photo shows a single bowl only (the waitress helped us to split the dish into individual bowls).

This has one of the strongest XO taste amongst XO soups that I've tried. There's unfortunately no non-milk option (which I usually prefer), but I enjoyed the warming hearty soup. Fish slices were very thick. There were a few pieces of cabbage hidden inside too. We also ordered a stir fried kailan for $10.

This is a wholesome-tasting bowl of noodles. The soup has a strong taste of Chinese herbs, and is simultaneously bitter and salty and sweet. Despite the ingredients all being made of vegetable or soy products, they vary nicely in taste and texture.

You get to choose from three types of noodles and three types of soups. I chose ramen noodles, which was nice and springy, and the preserved vegetables beef broth, which was slightly spicy and a little weird. I think the authentic beef broth would have been nicer. The pieces of beef were excellent – the shank was tender and the tendon was soft and chewy. The portion size is large and the soup is comforting. I added $3.40 for a meal, which includes an appetiser (I had chilled black fungus with garlic, which was nice, but not as nice as my mom's chilled tofu with century egg) and a drink (I had hot jasmine tea).

I had the prawn dumplings shrimp ramen ($13.90), and added $3.90 to upgrade it to a set which includes an appetiser (I chose bamboo shoots, which come chilled) and a drink (I chose hot green tea). You get to choose from 3 types of noodles, thick bee hoon, ramen, and hor fun noodles. The soup had a thick hearty prawn taste. I finished all of it without meaning to, and didn’t feel thirsty afterwards. There were five dumplings, each packed with ingredients, but too firm. There’s a decent portion of crunchy cabbage to that adds nutrition and textural contrast.
