Getting more and more impressed w this place. Evidently it's not the normal mapo tofu but it's still got some spice, esp the numbness. I didn't expect their nanru pork to be fried though, my gf does a braised version. The naming is abit misleading cos the pork is just a side, portion wise

Anyway this is one of their specials that's not on the usual menu, first time I see it

Comes w more youtiao usually, I asked for less.

Comfort food, the seasoning is quite on point, considering this place is in KR(sick ppl can enjoy it yet it's not bland). Really just comfort food, even tho the ingredients are quite unique.

Hong shao rou only avail on Monday?

Very hearty bowl. Lu rou wasn't Taiwanese but still quite tasty and homely, the veg lacks crunch but had enough tang. The rest were average. Nonetheless with this portion, and being the closest comfort food outside of school, I'm sure to make a return :)

Whole range of cold brews (coffee & tea) available ๐Ÿ˜‹

Dabao Spicy Coney Dog with Fries. It is so good. The fries were still crispy and the chilli meat sauce on top of a crunchy hotdog wrapped with a soft bun did it for me.

Definitely coming back for more!

The batter was crisp and crunchy, and while we enjoyed the lean cuts, that came at the expense of less tender bites. The cutlet sat atop fluffy Japanese rice coated in a fragrant sweet-spicy Japanese curry. Generously topped with their mentaiko, personally felt that it could do without the sauce given that the curry overpowered it. Overall, would recommend this (although not sure how itโ€™ll hold up in take away)!

No, dine in? Itโ€™s alright as we have @mammameveryday bringing affordable local food to homes~ The casual cafรฉ is a concept created by Ponggol Nasi Lemak and Chef-Owner of @venuebysebastian at OUE Downtown Gallery.

The affordable rice bowls from @mammameveryday comes with seasonal vegetables and egg/tofu dish of the day.
* Chef Sebastian's Signature Spice-Crusted Chicken Leg ($8.50), juicy chicken leg crusted with a unique blend of house-made spices and served with a side of pickled cucumber.
* Chef Sebastian's Signature 100-hour Duck Confit ($11.50). After seeing raving reviews online, I can see why. The duck is marinated in 10 over types of herbs and spices for 2 days before it is slow-cooked for 24 hours. Best to pair it with the piquant green sambal.
* Slow-roasted Norwegian Salmon Specialty ($9.50)
* Signature Minced Chicken with Basil and Egg Tofu ($5.90)

Frankly speaking, this brat is the wurst.
But for real, the Coney dog comes with a good level of spice in the sauce and a healthy girth in the bratwurst.
