1) Spring Rolls($5.50) - 8.25/10 Umami burst of flavor, crunchy. Shiok with sweet chili oil is good with the spring rolls. Reminds me Abit of yam rings.
2) Pho Dac Biet ($8.80) - 7.75/10 Beef fats is shiok,chewy. Beef ball is handmade,tender. Noodles are chewy, soft enuf. Macam eating a full beef. Got one part of the beef which is tough tho.
3) Soupsop drink($4.30) - I think I figured that I can't appreciate the flesh of soursop. The drink was ok.

1)Smoked Duck Pasta($6.50) - 7/10 Smells full of mushroom cream sauce. Noodles are ok, but the cream sauce nvr really matches well with the noodles. Duck is nice, got Abit of texture and char,Abit salty too. Everything in one mouthful has the smokiness of duck but the sauce doesn't do much to help the dish,it is just a bystander.
2)Sweet Potato Fries($5) - 8/10 Tastes good,like sweet potato. Like the addition of sugar and softness of the fries. Crunchiness is present too. Quite surprised at this standard of fries tho.

$26.80 2 Men set [email protected] Collections:

1)Mushroom Herbs Seabass - Peppery soup. Mushroom is bouncy. Fish is fresh. Fish is not bad.
2)Mouthwatering Chicken - Abit cold and spicy. Like chicken with mala, nothing that wows. Cucumber is crunchy.

Ah Boy Chicken Rice($3.20):

7.5/10 overall.
$6.80 Chicken Rice Set A: Comes with soup,achar and peanuts. Smells fragrant. Cucumber is crunchy and chicken is ok. Chili has garlic inside, with chicken,it tastes better. Chicken itself is moist and taste better than average. Achar is crunchy and fresh. Braised peanuts are ok, not too much of the braised sauce. Soup has the lotus root taste. Lotus root is boiled at the right amount of time.
$8.80 Sichuan Dumplings: Meaty but Abit tough on the insides. They used big prawn as the meat. Innovative. Maybe if the chili has Abit more kick, it would've been better.

Ninjachirashi:
#JonApproves
Playing anime songs as background music,not bad I say. Eg Go by Flow. Quite small and chill place.
1)Ninja Lord($19.90) - 7.5/10 Shrimp tastes fresh. Salmon is cold and fatty. Tobiko are burstful and salty.
2)Kabayaki Unagi Don($15.90) - 7.25/10 Tango is sweet and flavorful. Rice can be cooked longer. Scallops are clean. Cucumbers are fresh and crunchy, jap cucumbers. Unagi is pleasant, better than some places. All in one mouth is really an experience.

Ordered delivery from Taishike.

The food smells so good and fragrant even without taking the food out of the plastic bag. Delivery is $8 unless u order $80 worth I think. I appreciate how they make the food good till it tastes as if u are eating in the restaurant but in the comfort of ur home.
$6 Oyster Mee Sua: 8/10 Broth is warmth to the throat. Coriander gives it a good flavor. Oyster is Abit mushy. I think it's a hearty dish.
$8 Large Braised Pork Belly Rice: 8.25/10 Smell of braised pork is strong. Pork is chewy too.
$5 Shredded Chicken Rice: 8.5/10 Garlic is homemade, really fragrant and strong. With chicken, chili flakes and garlic, the dish became a spicy paradise. Altho chicken is dry. The dish still tastes great.
$3.50 Preserved Egg Tofu: 7.5/10 Bonito flakes smell game strong. Century egg taste isn't overwhelming so everyone can enjoy.

Mutton Biryani&Fried Chicken Thigh($5.50)@Selera Rasa:

8.25/10
Long queue at 11.25am, manages to get food at 11.55am. Worth if u have time to kill and want some cheap and nice biryani.
Fragrant. Rice is norm. Cabbage is crunchy but Abit lacking in flavor. Mutton Curry is flavorful. Mutton is tender and fall-off-the-bone kind. Mutton doesn't have much of the gamey taste. Mutton with curry elevated the experience. Chicken is tender,skin is unevenly crisp tho. Curry did nothing to help the chicken. Price is cheap and affordable. Mutton is one of the better ones.

Hokkien Mee($5)@Nam Sing Hokkien Mee:

Called before I arrived and it was right on time.
Soggy,clean tasting. Fragrant and flavorful. Lime further improved the dish with sourness. Wok hei seems to be far in the background. I appreciate that their sotongs are not hard but chewy. Better than avg but not the best.

Loos Hainanese Curry Rice($4.50):
#JonApproves
8/10
Pork cutlet, 1 veg, Pork Belly and Steam Egg
Pork Belly is fatty and firm. Curry is light and flavorful, Abit of kick.. Smell like it has satay sauce. Pork cutlet is tasty and has Abit of chew. Veg is soft. Steam egg is soft yet firm. Cai Fan but lvl up. Setting standard for Curry Rice. Not the best tho..

Restaurant [email protected] Pasoh Road:
#JonApproves (Not the wagyu beef)
Place is quite chill. Warm lighting.
Scallop Carpaccio($18) - 8.5/10 Scallops are fresh, like the small bit of spice from herbs and crunchiness from nuts, very clean tasting. Smooth scallops as if they were sliding on the tongue. Tobiko Eggs just burst in the mouth.

Restaurant [email protected] Pasoh Road:
#JonApproves (Not the wagyu beef)
Place is quite chill. Warm lighting.
Oysters($18, $2 each) - 8.5/10 Oysters doesn't need to pick them out of shell. Fresh,maciam from another ocean also. Chewy, smooth. Limited choices for oysters tho. Maybe if got baked ones would be good too.

Searching for good food,would travel for it.
