Good bowl of Sarawak Laksa @$5. Can see people start queueing at 1115-1130am
Go early as the shop closes at 230pm.

One of the better and more affordable yong tau foos around! We always go for their tomyam soup because it’s always consistently good. They also have spaghetti sauce, which I’ve never seen in other YTF restaurants before and will never have the courage to try 😂

I didn’t expect to find one of the best rostis I’ve ever had in my life at a small cafe at Bukit Merah. Okay to be fair, I’ve not had that many rostis in my life but this was really a pretty damn solid one. Didn’t look like much but while it was insanely crispy, the insides of it remained fluffy. Also appreciate how it wasn’t overwhelmingly greasy like many of the other rostis I’ve had in my life. Used Burpple Beyond but I would pay full price for this.

The 牛腱 (Beef Shank) had lots of tendons in it, which I LOVE! 😍 Paired with sweet chilli sauce on the side, these would have been perfect had they not been cut so thickly, which made it quite tough to chew on.

On the rare occasions that I do crave for Chinese food, Xiao Long Bao (Chinese Soup Dumplings) is ALWAYS my holy grail. 😋🥢🥟 I mean, who could resist that juicy packet of meat bursting with flavourful juices, encased in a smooth hand-made wrapper and lightly flavoured with a dipping of vinegar and ginger? 😍

Although these XLB by 东记拉面小笼包 were pretty affordable compared to my fave @dintaifungsg XLB, I can't say that it was good enough for me to return again... The skin was a little too thick for my liking, and perhaps I'm spoiled by DTF, but these babies didn't ooze as much juice as I had expected LOL. 🙊

Mentaiko pasta ($17.90) ⭐️ 3/5 ⭐️
Smoked salmon cheese rosti ($16.90) ⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️
Double scoop ($5.50) ⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️
🍴Decided to pay this cafe a visit given the 1-1 Burpple discount. Overall, would say their mains are worth it with the discount but probably wouldn’t patronize at full price. On the other hand, their yummy ice cream is worth a visit and we could see how they were the 1st runner up of the SG 2019 gelato championship. While we enjoyed that the #mentaikopasta wasn’t overly rich/ creamy as some mentaiko pastas are, we found that it was a bit dry, could do with more mentaiko, and that the seafood (prawns, clam, squid) were dried out, being oddly fried but not crispy. The #rosti was enjoyable with the mix of rich stringy cheese (cheese lovers would love that it’s packed full of cheese) and potato (would have been better if even crispier). We felt that the smoked salmon and egg didn’t quite pair with the rosti but it was still a good dish overall. We loved the strong and rich flavours of their smooth #icecream that’s not too sweet, and also relatively affordable. The #earlgreylavender had a fragrant tea and floral aroma, with neither overpowering the other. We also went with the premium avocado (+70c) that was really creamy with a distinct avocado flavour although as a fan of avocado, would have liked if the avocado taste was even more distinct.

Grandma Homemade Soup (S$2)

Available at @hongsengcurryrice
The curry gravy, braised gravy and sweet & sour sauce were packed in containers. I seldom take brown rice but the version here actually quite moist. The soup was quite flavourful and packed with chunks of potato, but mom remarked why no meat and kind overwhelming of sodium.

😋 Chicken Chop with add on Pork Cheese Sausage. Its a large serving and can share for 2 small eaters. Really love the juicy sausage and the thick cut fries. Its better to come here before peak meal times for a shorter queue. Recommend👍

$4 for 6 xlbs. Despite hearing good reviews on this, I personally do not really like it because of the strong ‘pork smell’. It was abit too much for me. The skin was good though, with a good anount of soup. Ryan likes it but I didn’t so taste-wise is quite subjective. Wouldn’t mind trying out their other dishes next time though!

⭐️ 1/5 for nat, 4/5 for ryan

Had the value set at $4 (pork cutlet, battered prawn, ikan bilis) and 4 heavenly king set at $6.90 (chicken curry, braised pork, pork cutlet) - Value set is more worth it, the heavenly king set seems to be there to scam people like us who wants to try a bit of everything...

Generally quite nice, plate was not too overwhelmed with curry zhap and the curry is aromatic and had a *slight* spicy kick. Cutlet could do better with more meat and the prawn batter was soggy at the time we bought it. Especially loved the ikan billis and peanut side they gave!! Yummy and good portion given.

⭐️ 3.5/5, value set is really value for money

The stall name appeals to me as my grandma was a Lor Mee hawker too.

The uncle only sliced the lor Bak (Braised pork belly) upon my order, ensuring the meat was fresh and moist when served. I like the way he took pride in his work, putting in effort to arrange the ingredients neatly and beautifully, creating a visual element that captured my eyes. (Usually I am the "art director" who arrange the food before I take pictures! 😅 )

The bowl was topped with generously-thick slices of lor bak, Ngoh Hiang, half a braised egg, one deep fried fish nugget and some crispy batter bits. The Lor (thickened gravy) tasted good and I could make out the spices used before mixing everything up but the gravy turned runny too quickly.
