I would usually only write at length for something that's either rly gd or rly awful. Unfortunately, this review is of the latter.

Right off the bat, we could sense something was off when there was no staff to welcome us in despite it being 6+ pm on a Friday. It took a good 2 to 3 minutes for a staff to finally come out from the back to sit us.

We ordered (the ordering bell was out of battery :/) the sea bass & the crab pasta. Visually, the plating for both dishes looked uninspiring (sry for the lack of pictures to back this up) Despite being branded as "aglio olio" on the menu, the pasta was dripping wet & tasted heavily of pepper. The crab pieces seemed frozen too; it was hard to appreciate much flavour in them. The fish, being the highlight of the dish, was overcooked and the sides were average at best.

Even the water was chargeable by the bottle (mineral water I guess). The only plus point was the mango smoothie, which was actually decent!

The total bill came up to around 40 bucks which definitely could have been better spent at other restaurants. Would not recommend, especially those 2 dishes :(

HMM why is there only a picture of ice cream? what happened to the stew? HAHAH it’s bc the food was soooo gddd that they entered our stomachs before we could take a pic :) we had the $16.40 nett burpple set with 2 stews, 2 bowls of rice, 2 canned drinks and 2 ice cream. the place & owner looked rather unassuming, leaving us without much expectations, but let’s just say till today, we are wholly surprised we managed to finish every single drop of both stews :o we chose “chili bae” and “og kim” for our stews. “og kim” was like a standard kimchi broth, where the spice level & ingredients inside were all just right. the standout of the night however had to be “chili bae”. it's a gochujang broth but in addition to the spice (which is not that much tbh), there was this special savoury-ness taste to it. coupled with the beef & mushroom, the stew was a unique, wholesome dish - idk how else to describe it, just try it for yourself! the staff were also really friendly and kind - i think we were served by a korean guy :)) the only downside is the limited seats available. i’m sorry that this photo really doesn't do justice to the amazing experience we had, so just come down and give it a try!
