The longest I've waited for har cheong kai (~40 min) but also by far the TASTIEST har cheong kai I've eaten. The batter is extremely umami yet retains a certain lightness!

I ordered fried fish, coffee pork, tomato egg and spinach. Aside from the inevitable oiliness, I enjoyed this plate of cai fan very much! This is one of my favourite cai fan stalls in Singapore, as portions never fail to be generous and food is reasonably tasty.

This is one of the best white bee hoons I have tried in Singapore!!! The use of a deep bowl to serve the bee hoon was smart as it allowed the noodles to be perpetually soaked in the flavourful broth (unlike if it were to be served on a mildly-curved plate). While the seafood did not taste super fresh, the BROTH more than made up for it -- I could just eat bee hoon and egg in that broth and be satisfied!

The beef slices were tender but unfortunately that is the best that can be said about this plate of hor fun -- it lacked any wok hei and was just disappointing overall, as all the other dishes I've tried from this stall had been excellent so far.

This deep dish of braised tofu, vegetables, mushrooms and roast pork was absolutely delightful. The bowl was chock full of ingredients and the gravy tasted a bit like chilli crab gravy. A simple dish, very well executed.

This is one of the most popular dishes at KEK - while tasty, I wasn't particularly impressed. I liked the addition of lup cheong in the noodles but I would have preferred a slightly more cooker egg πŸ˜…

The xlb here is very average, in fact probably on the lower side of average because of the thick skin, paltry serving of meat and forgettable soup broth. On the whole, I felt thay the baked and pan-fried items fared much better than the steamed items.

This was unfortunately quite lacklustre as the filling was very sparse and the rice sheets were too thick and gummy instead of silky. The sauce didn't have a distinct flavour to enhance the dish as well - please save your money and order something else instead.

Definitely on the pricier end of dim sum dishes, but it was one of the best we tried that night. That said, I felt the pandan was non-existent and would rather have a normal BBQ pork bun if it means lower ingredient cost -> lower price!

Easily one of the best dishes of the night - the carrot cake was crispy on the edges and just the right level of soft inside. I appreciate the sprinkle of char siew on top as well.

The skin was a bit too thick for my liking, but the salted egg yolk custard was the perfect balance of sweet, salty and creamy.

The generous serving of minced meat and sauce accompanied the la mian very well, especially as it could be a bit too salty if eaten on its own/ with less carbs. It is a hearty bowl of noodles that can beat most 炸酱青s around!
