Tasty soup broths (shark bone and cartilage brewed soup base) and fresh ingredients (kurobuta pork, USA prime beef, prawn pastes, handmade fishballs, prawn wantons etc) are the selling points that keep the crowds coming back to this simple no frills steamboat restaurant along Joo Chiat Road (looks almost fully booked on a Sunday evening).

While I wouldnโ€™t rate it the most budget friendly steamboat option (I prefer the prices over at ไธ€้”… at Kallang but some compromise on the ambience needs to be made for a cheaper price of $30 per pax as its at a hawker centre), I still appreciated the interesting and unique dishes offered such as the Fish Kway Teow (fish meat in the form of noodle strands-very nice texture) and drunken prawns.

I also liked their version of prawn paste, very bouncy and fresh tasting! Tom yum soup tastes more towards Chinese and not the Thai style, but still holds some standard and kick. Basic sauces - chilli padi with light soya sauce and chicken rice ish chilli available.

Would like to try more of the other handmade items such as herh keow and meat balls in my next visit!

Spicy lemongrass Clams
- MUST TRY! You can even drink the soup that comes with it. Very refreshing. Portion size is decent too.

Spring rolls
- (fried) one has a unique taste
- (normal) similar to the ones you get in vietnam. (except without the smelly veggies - was a plus pt tho)

Beef pho - great with the additional (lime/lemon/lemongrass) they have provided us with. Very generous with the beef too. Beeffff ๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿคค

If u like the slightly chewy but not too thick type of pizza crust with mild leopard prints , their pizza base is great . 70% hydration n made of 7 types of stone ground grain ( donโ€™t ask me why so many types u go urself n ask the Chef pls ) . The pasta with Bottarga ( cured mullet roe) was the star dish for us .

If youโ€™re up for some jiggly, wobbly, fluffy souffleฬ pancakes in the East, then be sure to check out Kingโ€™s Cart Coffee Factory at Joo Chiat Road. Choose from Original to Tiramisu to Pandan Kaya.

We had the Original ($16.50+; Pic 1) which was a souffleฬ pancake with fresh cream, maple syrup and assorted fruit (strawberries, kiwis, raspberries and blackberries). While the pancakes were soft and airy, it was a bit denser than I thought itโ€™d be.

Do have it with fresh fruit, fresh cream and maple syrup for sweetness. Otherwise, youโ€™ll feel like youโ€™re eating eggs. You may find this a bit on the high side for what it is, but if youโ€™re going to a cafe, do consider that their overheads can be quite high.

A chill place to go in the East, Iโ€™ll be back to try their brunch items and the other pancakes at an appropriate time.

Your typical latte with coconut cream and gula melaka added. Some toasted coconut flakes have been added for aesthetics and give it additional texture. I found this to be a bit diluted and not sure if itโ€™s because it only had a single espresso shot.

Itโ€™s not fair for me to rate their coffee based on these specialty drinks as I havenโ€™t tried their standard espresso/ cold brew yet.

I love coconut drinks so was quite intrigued by the coconut cold brew. Just think of the coconut juice and coconut flesh being put in a nice glass, and that you donโ€™t need to scrape the sides for the flesh. Add some cold brew concentrate for your refreshing caffeine boost. Quite a good concoction if you want something different.

Espresso, home-made salted caramel, milk, speculoos crumble
That hints of savouriness in the slightly sweet milky coffee is lovely.

Dense and moist spongy chocolatey cake.
Plain boring and not nice to eat on its own as you get sick of it after a few bites but pair it with the salted caramel sauce and coconut ice cream, its another story, the feel is significantly elevated.
Expensive lah...๐Ÿ’ธ

Fresh Orange, Espresso, Tonic Water
Coffee with orange juice. Not a good one. Should be a refreshing sweet drink with a bit coffee bitterness and lingering citrus scent. Not the coffee problem, guessing is the orange juice not suitable with their coffee or maybe the portion not right.

Lychee, Mint Leaf, Lemon Juice, Soda Water
Lychee I believe should be from can. Nice deco but not a good drink.
