White chicken rice set @ $4.50

Cheap and good, nothing to complain about.
Need to bring own container to get the soup.

$7.70

Can't really taste much of the "herbal" part of the dish, it's more like a normal mutton soup. Good amount of meat, which is tender and well layered with skin, fat and meat. The whe dish just had a little of the mutton taste and smell, not too strong.

Will probably skip this dish if I ever come back here again.

$7 for 3 chicken wings (3 drumlets + 3 wings)

This is both our favourite dish today. Love the texture and taste of the batter, amazingly good and not overdone. Chicken meat is tender too. Tastes great on its own and even better with the chilli sauce.

$11 for this dry bak kut teh.

Taste wise, it's really great. The meat is tender and comes off the bone quite easily. Tastes superb when dipped with the dark sauce that is cooked with cuttlefish (the maggie looking thing) which accentuates the taste. Goes well with rice.

Good portion but just thought the price is a bit steep especially compared to the other dishes there.

Hope to try their normal bak kut teh next time ($7.70).

Got the set meal for 4pax at $48 which includes abacus 算盘子, braised preserved veggie and pork 梅菜扣肉, hakka yong tau foo 客家酿豆腐 and salted chicken 盐鸡, with a plate of free noodles.

We loved the simplicity of all the dishes and the taste were all en pointe, nothing that's too bland nor overly heavy. Reminded us of simple homecooked dishes.

Would love to go back and try other dishes.

Small canteen-style cafeteria along South Bridge Road that sells a variety of noodles, all at $2.50 or $3, including Mee Rubus, Lor Mee, Bak Chor Mee, Prawn Noodles, Mee Siam, Laksa.

Lor mee was good for the price, $2.50 comes with lots of fried crackers, half an egg, 1 piece of braised pork and 2 pieces of ngohhiang like ingredients. Can ask for more vinegar if prefer a stronger taste. Portion is just nice for me (not a big eater).

We ordered one Sichuan Pork Noodles ($6) and one lunch set ($16) that comes with Braided Pork Noodles + Original Dumplings (4pcs) and Longan Osmanthus Pu-er drink for 2pax.

Portion was alright, just nice for us.

Taste wise, the dumplings were good, ingredients were fresh and tasted well without the vinegar and ginger.

The noodles were good too, but they don't live up to their names. Was expecting the Sichuan Pork Noodles to be spicy, but didn't get any of the kick. The Braised Pork Noodles was more like pulled pork than the lu-rou kind of braised pork. But in any case, they're still both very tasty.

The drink was good too, refreshing and had good amount of longan and osmanthus-like jelly in it. But I wouldn't pay the ala carte price of $6 for it.

The lunch set price of $16 is only worth it because of the price of the drink. Otherwise just the noodles (mostly around $6) and dumplings (mostly around $8 for 5pcs) might be more worthwhile. Can get coffee/tea elsewhere, but that's just a personal opinion.

Overall good experience and would definitely be back again for the tasty food (and not the drink!)
