So Pao Fan has been the hype since the end of last year and I finally tried it! We visited King of Pao Fan in Bugis and got the Half Live Lobster Pao Fan ($18) and Duo Pao Fan ($6). The lobster had substantial amount of meat that was juicy and fresh. Really worth the price. The rice was soaked in the seafood broth that was sweet and rich. The dish was also topped with crispy rice puff and fried egg floss that gave a good contrast in texture to the soupy pao fan. The Duo Pao Fan was really good too. With the same broth, the only difference was that it was served with generous amount of fried and boiled fish slices. I'm personally not a fan of pao fan but throughly enjoyed the unami soup, as well as the fresh and meaty lobster that came with it.

Chanced upon this shop after my Saturday morning workout a few weeks back. As the eatery has half its menu offering a wide range of different chee cheong fun i.e steamed rice roll, I knew I couldn't miss out on this. I ordered the fresh prawn egg roll ($7.50) and to be very honest, I've not paid so much for a chee cheong fun before lol. Didn't think it was especially mind blowing but it was a well made chee cheong fun, with the silky rice roll and crunchy fresh prawns. For those who wants to deviate from the usual char siew or prawn chee cheong fun typically offered in dimsum stalls, this is probably the place to go. Some of the more unique variety of chee cheong fun that caught my eye were vegan roll, pork and liver roll, and beef roll.

My go-to place for bak kut teh whenever I'm craving for some hot peppery soup! I'm quite sure this place needs no introduction. Despite it being touristy (not that there are any tourists now lol), it still serves good quality bkt :) yumz
