The sambal was unique but not particularly good, overall it's somewhat dry and clammy.

The pork lard was absolutely terrible, and it's an annoyance that there's so many little pieces to remove.

Overall it's alright, the soup has meat wantons inside but that's not v good either

Pigtail sells out at 9am. Enough said

3 separate trips down just for them and never managed to get the pigtails. Gdi lol I'm done

Jjm was pretty good! Noodles were chewy, sauce was flavourful with generous portions of soft onions and pork. It was served piping hot so it was extra shiok.

Tangsuyuk was crisp and served in thick meaty chunks, they are once again super generous with portions, but I found some pieces a tad dry / hard. The sauce was quite tangy, reminded me of lemon chicken sauce. I liked that it was served separately on the side instead of being poured directly onto the meat - we get to decide how much sauce we want!

At this price point, it is really v value for money given the quality and portions, I would definitely come back for the jjm and also try their other dishes!

Glad that it's deboned. Honestly don't really buy the hype, it's more cos they have no competition plus they only open in the morning(for god knows why) that they draw a queue from anyone who wants to eat braised duck in the area

The sauce was very light, they give a lot of rice btw. The duck could have been more tender, passable as it was, but sambal was sour and punchy tho

this place opens until 11am they said, but I went at 10am some days and they were done alr. Not sure about the opening hours, so be ready to try other things if they're not open. Best to reach before 9am

It's pretty good, the bread got this cake like "stickiness" in terms of the chew, and dissipates nicely in your mouth. Very fluffy yet reasonably dense.

The spreads were fine, not very strong

No need to make a trip down, if you're nearby in the morning can give it a try

Yes, the lady doesn't have a good temper. I have to speak up for her abit tho, the customers at this FC are sometimes abit weird and do silly things as well, so it's not entire on her that she's not in a good mood generally. In the time I was here I was also getting slightly annoyed at the multitudinous antics I see

Food review:
The char siew has spectacular bite, when it's of a good balance of fattiness and meatiness and is cooked perfectly, to give the bouncy refined texture. However it's not crispy or well charred at all except for the ends, and the glaze really lacks flavour. Not my thing but it's stil objectively well executed

Noodles were very al dente, without the alkaline smell. Sauce was weak too, much like the char siew

Wantons are smaller and have only meat filling, the shuijiaos are bigger with a whole shrimp inside. The meat filling is umami w the addition of some kind of dried seafood cos of the slight funk, and very good. I prefer the smaller unadulterated meat ones

The chili tho, is extremely tangy and works superbly with the sweet sauce to give an impressive depth to the noodles. This singlehandedly makes this plate extremely special

Overall it's worth a try if you like wanton mee, but except for the wantons and the chili I wasn't super impressed w anything in particular

Textbook. Every component from the rice to the tender ckn, is very simple and well executed.

Sauce was sweet and savoury, quite mild but works

Soup was peanut and ckn feet, pretty good too

Worth a try if textbook, clean ckn rice is your thing

The egg is 0.5nett, pappadum as well

Everything was alright, generally quite mild, mutton was tender.

Nothing to travel for, it's really quite safe and not very strongly spiced, rice was fluffy. Nowhere near as mindblowing as the tekka branch, best of think of them as completely different

Char siew was lean and abit dry, rice was normal despite looking like yam rice. Duck was pretty average too, there's a bit of flavour but it's somewhat tough and the skin wasn't crispy

The sio bak is the highlight here, it's got a thin hard crisp and it's very fatty so quite flavourful.

Pork stomach was quite overcooked, it's cracked and is mushy, and pepper soup was also way too spicy to taste anything from the peppers

Can try the siobak, but no need to make a special trip

Teochew porridge shop that serves the usual comfort food at a reasonable price even past midnight till 4 am. They offer an extensive range of dishes that satisfy almost anyone and everyone. Porridge is served hot with average and simple yet comforting dishes 》$9.70

The jackpot owner who gotten its spotlight on media for his luck early this year, which first started his first roasted meat stall at Bukit Merah.

Unfortunately his luck couldn’t fight against the rent and manpower crush, so now he continue his only business at his second outlet at Ang Mo Kio.

Gotten their trio which consists of the char siu, roasted pork and roasted chicken on choice of rice or noodle.

You get to choose the fat, half or lean for the roasted pork. Most people would go for the half one.

I totally enjoyed all of the meat. They are so juicy and delicious. Every order of plate would get you a bowl of soup as well.
