The vegetarian stall located in Marsiling mall hawker centre is worth the try, even if you’re not a vegetarian/vegan! The owners whip up some pretty good dishes and you know their food is good when you are expected to wait 15-20 minutes for your food.

Most of their dishes are pretty flavourful and super satisfying even if they have no meat. Very affordable as well. Some dishes, like this seafood tofu soup, are on the bland side but you can see that you still get so much ingredients!

For $3.50, they served a decent plate of vegetarian fried rice! It was piping hot because they cook on the spot, which also means that you’d have to wait 5-10 minutes for your food. Portion size is great (in fact it was a bit too much for me). They include: mock charsiew, corn, peas, carrots and egg (optional). Not too sure what sauce was used but it was savoury and slightly spicy!

One of the better dry MHKs I’ve tried! They have the regular soup version as well but I’ve always gravitated towards their dry version. You can choose between $3, $4 or $5. For $4, they are indeed very generous with the dough and other ingredients. Their minced meat are handmade so the texture and taste are really on point. Sauce is not overly salty (in fact it would taste even better if they have vinegar!). Opt for chili if you like spicy, their chili is good too.

Stall owners are friendly and approachable :-) and they have tons of noodle types for you to choose from (ban mian, you mian, ke kou mian, etc.) please give this a try if you ever visit Marsiling mall! They’re located opposite the lift lobby, and right beside the famous Nasi lemak stall.

Newly Opened Fish Head Steamboat & Sliced Fish Soup #01-27. They attracted a huge crowd on their first week of opening (9 Sep) as they had a huge stall and bright signboards. You could see many tables with the steamboat (they are the only stall to serve the dish in Marsiling Mall) so we decided to give it a try as well!

So it’s been almost 3 weeks since their grand opening and we noticed that the number of tables with the steamboat has dropped significantly and.. we might know the reason why.

First of all, this steamboat was $32. It was for 2 pax and the stall owner assured us that there were plenty of ingredients, sufficient for 2pax. When it arrived, there were only 3 ingredients – red grouper fish head slices, Chinese cabbage and yam. Ok 4 if you count the soup. No tomato slices, no other vegetables, just the 3 ingredients mentioned. If we wanted more ingredients, we had to top up (a few more dollar for each ingredient) and the price of the steamboat would have went up.

Soup was so bland... and had the fishy taste. I don’t think they put in ginger slices to get rid of the fishy smell so it was quite hard for us to finish the soup. We understand that red grouper is not cheap, but the meat was so tough and dry. Not sure if it’s the way they cooked or the freshness of the fish, but it was not good.

Overall it was such a disappointing meal. $32 for a whole steamboat of bland and fishy soup, with so little ingredients :(

Their homemade tofu was crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside! Contrast was good and went well with the sweet yet savoury sauce. This dish only came with a big block of tofu, plenty of sauce and garnishes (not a huge fan of coriander so we skipped that but I’m sure it does add some depth to the taste).

Sweet and sour pork was quite standard. We would have preferred it if the pork chunks were smaller (easier to chew and more to distribute especially if you’re sharing) and for the portion to be bigger.

The IMM branch serves quite a huge range of steamed and fried dimsum so we decided to order a few to try. Both the egg tarts (total 3pcs) and fried yam cake (total 3pcs) were so-so, definitely not the best and have room for improvements. Given their price points, we expected better quality.

You can choose between Ah Por and Ah Gong ginger fried rice. The only difference is the amount of ginger they use for the dish. Ah Por has lesser ginger than Ah Gong!

This dish was a pleasant surprise. We were expecting the ginger taste to be strong and overpowering but it wasn’t. It was subtle, and gave a nice bite to the fried rice. Just the right amount of seasoning as well. Looks simple but it was v satisfying :-)

The iconic Samsui Ginger Chicken is highly recommended by many when you visit Soup Restaurant. Glad that the 5 of us went with the small portion ($19.90) instead of the big portion ($35.90) bcos the small portion turned out to be quite a bit!

V unpopular opinion here but I think this dish was ok... it was not mind-blowingly good as the chicken tasted like regular steamed chicken from chicken rice stalls (except it’s served cold). The only saving grace was the sweet and savoury sauce and the high quality ginger which tasted good even to non-ginger lovers.

Worth a try since it’s highly raved by other customers but personally we wouldn’t order it again :( Also, thought it was worth mentioning that their service staff were super approachable and friendly!

A plate of really affordable and decent hor fun from the chicken rice stall (Yummy Chicken is the stall name if I’m not wrong)!!! Sauce is a mix of sweet and salty, but not overpowering. Hor fun has a good texture to it. Portion is huge considering that this is only.. $2.60. You can pair the hor fun with either lemon chicken, steamed/roasted chicken or even wanton!
