Despite its name this clearly isn’t clear soup and has milk added. Nevertheless it was tasty. All soup bases come with thick bee hoon, beansprouts, chives and beancurd sheets. I added cabbage and pig stomach and it was just nice a portion for dinner.

Although this is dry noodles, it’s not oily or covered in gravy. Instead it is light and healthy tasting, and seasoned with lime. There’s plenty of shredded vegetables mixed into it, in addition with several pieces of chicken and a spring roll. I enjoyed it very much.

Hidden gem. This is the best beef noodles I’ve had. Watching the lady cut up whole pieces of tendon into big chunks, I knew I was in for a treat. The tendon and tripe both come in huge pieces, and the balls were tender and gamey. The soup was very flavourful and had a nice beefy taste without being overpowering. You get to choose any combination of beef meat, tendon, tripe and balls, and the price adds up depending on how many you choose.

The classic pho comes with slices of beef in the soup, and basil, mint and lime on the side which you can add to the bowl. I liked the mix of flavours and the portion of beef, leaves and noodles was just right. The eatery is small and quiet, and waiters are polite.

I had the basic dory seafood soup, with added noodles ($1) and cabbage ($0.80). The broth, which I believe is made from prawns, was rich and delicious. There was a good amount of seafood, and the seafood tasted fresh. It is pricey, especially if you choose the other options, but worth an occasional treat.

I’m not sure when the price increased and the quality of ingredients decreased. The ingredients are no longer fresh, and so not justify the price tag. Thankfully the soup still retains its umami-ness. I liked it that they offered dry hor fun which was tasty, although I was rather put off by the server who asked me if I wanted less hor fun (I did, but it’s rude to ask, isn’t it?).

One of several fish soups in this hawker centre, this was a decent sliced fish soup with a flavourful soup and fresh springy fish slices. However the garoupa slices were not thick enough to justify the price, the mee sua was hard, and the soup was slightly too peppery for my liking. Some people really like this stall though, so it may be personal preference.

I was surprised that the soup only had noodles and garnishings of vegetables in it, and no meat or other more substantial ingredients. But then I realised that the noodle soup is very tasty, and the piping hot meatballs were substantial and just slightly crisp on the outside. Overall a delicious meal.

This is probably the basic level of what I expect from HK style wanton noodles. Noodles are QQ, wantons are decent but not spectacular. I liked the clean-tasting soup.

Love the QQ noodles and the big wantons with their QQ prawns. However the soup is salty and very oily.

Food is great, service is poor.

I liked the pho, with its tasty broth and the generous servings of seitan, oyster mushrooms, sprouts and herbs which combine to give a clean-tasting, hearty bowl.

The highlight was the summer roll, which is huge, has a thin rice paper skin, and generous insides which include crunchy vegetables for a nice bite.

The lady at the counter was rude. She took a long time to attend to me while she used her handphone, was unhelpful when I asked about the items on the menu, gave me inaccurate information about the dishes, and became impatient when my favepay couldn’t process the transaction.

I love this bak chor mee. Every strand of mee pok is slick with vinegar (I chose vinegar, no chilli), yet it’s not too oily. There’s just the right amount of ingredients and noodles, and the soup is brimming with pork bits that make it light and tasty.
