Located at 229 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208905.
Scissors cut curry rice, $4.50. Messy yet heavenly shiok plate of happiness!! We highly recommend their Crispy Pork, braised pork belly and Fish Fillet with that overflowing of Hainanese curry and dark braised sauce drenched all over the white rice! We also finds it addictive to hear those “click clack” scissors sounds where they constantly click when cutting meat. Comforting and tummy rubs!

Very addictive Korean Fried chicken at the Black Fairy. This is a cosy cafe serving up good quality food and coffee. Seems under featured but has a steady stream of customers.


Offering a variety of coffee is the Bravery cafe at Lavender. We ordered the ice latte, cold Brew and white coffee.

All coffee tasted good. Definitely a choice hang out place.

Has nice flavors and i like the noodle texture, my mum loves it too!

Their hargau was nice because there’s a lot of prawn! The flavour is also nice!

Their xiao long bao was beyond my expectations! The soup and filling tasted nice (similar to restaurants with higher price) although the skin needs to be thinner

Chasing away Monday Blues with an exploding salted egg yolk lava cookie, Volcano ($9.90 + $3.80 for one scoop of ice cream), from Creamery Boutique Ice Cream. The salted egg yolk lava is fragrant but not overly jelak - I like how it complements the brownie-ish cookie without overwhelming it. The black sesame ice cream is rich and smooth. Quite an enjoyable combination!

Ordered Liu Sha Bao aka salted egg yolk buns and they were terrific! The salted egg custard was grainy and tasted as great or probably better than those of dimsum places’ that are more expensive!
They xiao long bao is also beyond my expectation. The filling and the soup tasted great although it might be better if the skin was thinner.
They hargau consist of a lot of prawns and tasted good! I also recommend getting this if you’re into hargau.
Zha jiang la mian was also nice, my mum loves it. I gave it a try and I say it’s good!
To satisfy the veggie freak inside of me I also got the Mixed Vegetables which consist of cauliflowers, so un, carrot, and mushrooms and I love it!
BBQ pork pastry was okay. -

Wow! I did not expect this to be so good. If you like spicy but didn't really like the "ma" in the "la", you should give this a try! Best of mala without the "ma". The clams are also not overcooked 😊

Dessert Stall:
166 Jalan Besar #02-58, 208877 (Berseh Food Centre)

This stall serves wonderful desserts. The plethora of hot and cold desserts they offer is amazing.

The aroma of the coconut sugar emanating from their stove is amazing good! It is irresistible!

Hot desserts like red bean soup, tau suan etc only goes for $1.20! It is almost unbelievable.

I order two cold desserts due to the hot weather. Both the chendol and bur bur Cha Cha are yummy!! Their shaved ice are impossibly fine and soft... such that they liquified in your mouth!

My next one to try would be their coconut (brown sugar) ice kacang ($2).

Fresh prawns cooked in Singapore’s very own famous chili crab sauce. Option to add $2 for 4 mantous.

Found the sauce to be quite flat, lacking the perfect harmony of eggy, sweet, sour & spicy. Regardless, it went well with the mantous! And the prawns were still springy & juicy!
