I ordered this as a takeaway lunch on a weekday; there's a 20% discount for takeaways.

The dish amounted to about $11 after discount. While the fried rice was not as oily as those that you will find at zichar stalls and the ingredients were fresher, I would say that they pale slightly in comparison in terms of flavour.

That said, great service from the staff.

Great flavorful dish with discernible wok hei and decent portions. Only gripe is that the dish could pack a bit more heat, but that's a personal preference.

Will be back for more

Decided to try this place, didn't regret it.

The tofu was silky smooth; the sauce complemented the tofu but didn't overpower it. There was also a pretty decent portion of crabmeat as well.

Will visit again

Pork Chop Fried Rice - the egg fried rice was pretty good, with the individual grains of rice being coated with a light sheen of oil. However the pork chop was nothing to shout about.

Priced at $6.50, this is on a slightly steeper end of hawker fare. I would still recommend for those uninitiated to give it a try though, just manage your expectations and don't compare this to din tai fung.

This stall has been around for some time but I have never had the opportunity to try out their food.

The noodles has the right amount of firmness and springiness, and are topped with tender slices of beef.

But the real star of this dish would be the soup. Don't let the clear soup fool you, its flavour packs a punch. Moreover, the flavour profile of the soup is rather unique; it reminds me of the dishes that I had in China. You would be hard pressed to name another local place which serves beef noodles with a similar flavour profile. 😋

Got this for lunch during one of the weekdays. It was pretty satisfying overall with distinct enough wokhei (the beansprouts were slightly charred), and topped with a combination of squid, fish slices and shrimps.

A robust, quick and satisfying lunch before it's back to work. Will order again !😄

Steamed Horfun with prawns, shredded chicken and mushrooms. The horfun is steamed so understandably there's no wok hei to look forward to, but it's mixed with a savoury dark sauce that's fairly flavourful. Prawns were fresh and peeled (that's a nice touch) and the shredded chicken was not too bad.

It's a decent bowl, but I would rather stick with the signature hor fun in future.

First time trying old wife biscuit and my, was I in for a pleasant surprise.

The winter melon filling was just the right amount of sweetness for me, and I enjoyed the buttery and flaky crust. Didn't expect the biscuit to be that soft though. My personal preference is that the biscuit tastes better when it's still warm.

This box was purchased from their branch at raffles city though but I couldn't find the pinned location. $15 for a box of six biscuits.

Decent bowl of noodles with noddles that were qq, although the flavour profile could have been stronger. Priced at $12.90 (drink included), you get noodles, mince meat, some char siew, fried wantons, steamed wantons and shrimp, along with what appears to be abalone slices (?) in the soup.

This was made much more worth it with the burpple one for one deal.

I have never ever tasted duck served in such a manner before. That said, this was a really addictive dish (approx $15.90) - crispy duck that's fried with spices and served with toasted nuts and a heap of chilli and ginger.

If this dish was packaged like bags of chips and sold in the supermarket, I would stock up multiple bags of these at home. 😋🦆

As someone who loves different kinds of mushrooms, I had to try this dish even though the price tag of $25.90 for mushrooms alone made me think twice.

The wild porcini mushrooms were stir fried such that they were slightly crispy and yet retained some moisture within. The spices that were mixed with the mushrooms gave the dish a unique umami flavour profile, one which I don't think can be easily found elsewhere in Singapore or in our local cuisine.

Will I order this dish again? That's a definitive yes for me, but do note that this is coming from someone who loves and appreciates mushrooms in general. Some may find the price a little too steep for mushrooms alone (wild or otherwise).

In contrast with its steampot chicken soup counterpart, the broth here is really thick and infused with the goodness and sweetness of seafood. There were clams, prawns and meatballs in the dish.

Upon being served, the waitress added what appears to be crispy rice pops into the broth. The crispy rice pops provided a jarring yet interesting contrast with the mushier grains of rice in the broth. This added a different dimension and mouth feel to the entire dish. Would totally recommend this dish (approx $18.90)!

FYI, there's more to the dish than shown in the picture. The picture was taken in the middle of the meal.
