Ordered the platter ($20) because their sell point is supposedly the meat, but it really wasn't anything life-changing. In fact, I liked everything else better, i.e. them pillowy steamed buns and flavourful sauces. Who knew wasabi would go so well with roast pork?

Their stir-fried long beans gets a thumbs up too, they use less dried shrimp so it doesn't overwhelm.

This humble pork cutlet set is an act of self-care that makes shuttling between my back-to-back campus activities slightly more bearable. Relieve those memories of the struggle during class/projects/exams/club, all for the price of $5.90... (additional $1 off for SMU students)

More cutlet than pork but the crispiness makes up for it, and pairs excellently with the generous gravy (mix braised and curry sauce if you're indecisive) atop a heap of rice.

You also have a choice of 3 sides. I highly recommend going for the braised cabbage - a simple but incredible accompaniment. Pictured is also the long beans and ikan bilis/peanuts.

Dependable and delicious: that is what yong tau foo should be. And I'm happy to report that 5 Loaves lives up to my every expectation. They've got a decent variety of fresh vegetables and products stuffed with handmade fish paste, but what really does it for me is the soup - a light, MSG-free broth that is gentle on the palate.

Do make room for the sides like the chee cheong fun or abacus, they are sublime. The abacus seeds were not too hard nor too soft, and the rest of the ingredients were added with a controlled precision so it wouldn't become overly cloying.

Busy thinking up more words to describe food
