I’ve had this twice and it’s been my favourite dish both times. Soft smooth tofu, with a nicely browned firm surface, doused in a thick golden yellow pumpkin and salted egg sauce with shredded crab meat, and served with fresh broccoli. Highly recommended!

This cold starter was refreshing. The seaweed has a surprisingly creamy texture, while being slightly crunchy. The portion is quite large but it doesn’t fill you up, so it’s a nice dish to start dinner with.

This was a popular dish on many tables, and I can see why people like it. The bittergourd is sliced thin and not too bitter, cooked with a generous portion of egg, and with a surprise ingredient – salted egg. The dish was a little too salty for me, but it’s fragrant, tasty and not oily.

Although it’s called curry fish head, most people come here for the steamed fish. This fish was huge! It’s thick and firm and well-cooked in the Cantonese style. Price is very reasonable given the size of the fish.

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.

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.
