My love for hokkien mee has taken a backseat for a while since I do not have any good nearby options. Glad to chance upon Chef Goo’s as theirs is pretty decent

Dish is filling with its generous toppings - plump prawns though slightly overcooked are fresh, a few pork belly slices, lard, and some lala. It is on the wetter side (which I prefer), though the “broth” is a bit bland

Being a lazy ass, having that big of a prawn, I abhor the peeling part lol. Added in here (second photo) their peeled version ($6) which I enjoyed too, but not as much as the full one despite not doing the deshelling myself 😂

Head to Ikea Alexandra for Chicken horfun that won't break the bank 🤑 Shredded chicken, easy-to-slurp flat white noodle and decent gravy. Don't forget to ask for chilli 🌶🌶🌶 horfun in the next level! ☄️

Been passing by this place for a long while but only got to try it recently, and wow, no wonder they are always a full-house

Opted for their assorted soontofu (beef, clam, crab, shrimp, and squid) served with rice in hot stone, as well as sides. Hearty dish - good spice level (can be customised), really soft homemade tofu, piping hot rice

Sides are refillable, except for the fried yellowfish (this is good also)

Enjoyed my meal, filling and really comforting

The 𝗦𝗮𝗯𝗮 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗼𝘆𝗮𝗸𝗶 𝗦𝗲𝘁 ($12.80) was stellar as well. The expertly grilled saba was moist and tender, and did not have the fishy stench that saba fish served in food courts often do.

Each set came with a salad, chawanmushi, miso soup and fruit. These were decent and by no means spectacular, but they added to the completeness of the meal. Very satisfying and I’d love to try some other items on its menu.

Kumo Japanese Dining serves some reasonably-priced lunch sets. Being a sashimi lover, I naturally opted for the 𝗦𝗮𝗹𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗜𝗸𝘂𝗿𝗮 𝗗𝗼𝗻 𝗦𝗲𝘁 ($19.80).

The fresh and thick salmon sashimi slices tasted amazing, while the popping ikura were the icing on the cake. The sprinkling of sesame seeds on top was ingenious, as they added a nutty fragrance to the rice bowl.

Came here for the feb fish sando special but unfortunately we were a few minutes too late - it had sold out :( We tried the tonkatsu and chashu ones before and were satisfied, happy to know that these two items were great too! The portobello was joosy and had a nice bite, and I also liked the balsamic capsicum which was sour and naturally sweet. The Camembert went well with the portobello. There was no arugula in the sandwich tho, unlike what the menu wrote. Instead there was lettuce. Bun was soft and fluffy and held the ingredients well without getting too soggy.

Tori karaage was delish too! Chicken was tender with a crunchy outer coating, went well with the hot honey and other sauces for a sweet and savoury bite. The slaw helped cut through the heaviness of the sandwich, but I wish there was more, for a more refreshing flavour.

TLDR: sando’s sandos are great! Big fan

They reheated it for us but I think it could be more crisp! The outer part is laminated and buttery while the interior is bready-ish and filled with custard and choc. Was decent but I don’t think I’ll reorder, would rather go for their tarts / other pastries.


This was really good. It’s pricier and smaller than average but I think this was well worth. It was fragrant and had a strong coffee taste, and finished very smoothly. The beans are from Milton Coffee Roastery in Japan, according to the display. One of the better iced whites I’ve had in a long time!

Got to try this danish from Ah B Bakery while looking for other pastry options since AJ Delights’ queue is always long

The pastry is fluffy while still sturdy, but quite a mess to eat with the flaky texture (maybe I’m just a messy eater lol). The burnt custard filling is enjoyable - it’s silky and smooth, sweet but with good bitter notes as well

Easily one of my new neighbourhood bread faves (disclaimer: I haven’t had the fair share of pastries tried) 😅

I found a small piece of broken plastic in my dish towards the end of my meal. Not sure if I just ingested a bowl of melted plastic. It’s a safety issue, so I just wanted to put it out here.

I nicely told the staff about it - and they told me that I didn’t need to use the Burpple 1-for-1 deal as compensation, since this dish would be free. Don’t really understand how that’s a compensation since the dish was going to be free anyway with the deal. 😅 I verbalised that there was no difference, but no alternatives were offered. Didn’t want to kick up a big fuss since there was a family with children beside our table, so I left it, and here I am writing a negative review.

I thought the situation could’ve been handled better - it was slightly unpleasant that they spoke as if their compensation was great, when it didn’t make a difference to me at all. Food was actually okay if not on the pricier side, but I guess after this experience I don’t have the best impression of how this restaurant is ran.

So happy that Lye Bo is back with ~good~ food 🥹 they have stopped selling roast pork last Feb’22 and rebranded with a healthier menu. Wasn’t a big fan of that but their new menu (I think updated very recently) is something I would support again (similar to how I have been ordering roast pork from them at least once a week previously lol)!

The noodles is the highlight of the whole dish. Springy, flavourful, and very similar texture to ramen noodles (so maybe they used wheat noodles? Lol not sure, update this when I’ve asked them!)

The honey glazed bbq is also good, slightly tough but tastes well. Lard has a good crunch though less saltier than usual. Adding onsen egg boosts the overall dish, giving additional taste to the noodles while enveloping it
