Had #porkporridge on a rainy day lunchtime today with my colleague. This has been on my food radar for sometime. Happy with it. $3 per bowl and has generous portion of ingredients. First time trying so didnt know to upsize is just $0.50 for Big. 馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔 So we chose small. This is at 638 Veerasamy Road. Its near Jalan Besar Mrt Exit B.

Get ready for a dim sum party! The Steamed Charcoal Chicken & Shrimp Dumpling ($4 per basket of three) is an unconventional order, but the chunky shrimps, crunchy roe and soft charcoal skin in this dish should not be missed. Be sure to get the deliciously crispy Mee Sua Kueh ($3.60 for three) as well, stuffed with Chinese sausage and dried shrimps.

On the petite side, it was pretty decent being more savoury than sweet and the lava oozed really nicely. But still don't really understand the snaking queue since it wasn't head and shoulders above other places.

Have you seen charcoal skin siew mai before? This is my first time eating it, and while I don鈥檛 know how charcoal tastes like... it sure added a touch of luxe to the otherwise plain siew mai.

Pretty well-made Siew Mai I would say... chewy and savoury!


Sick people food can taste delicious too.

The crispy flakes floating on the porridge added a delightful crunch to the silky porridge. Lovely for rainy days, but good for normal days too.

So good that even the carnivorous eater would love it! Delicious mushroom fillings wrapped in translucent skin... I popped one into my mouth, and then a burst of umami-ness exploded. Bliss!

Its size 4.5 cm in diameter each. Gold Ball!
Famous as its was in printed articles on various countries and languages.
10 pieces a box, definitely great idea for a gift.
Each handcrafted, locally baked, delicious pineapple tart, buttery crust slightly crumple when put into mouth.
Highly recommended!

Pretty flavourful. But the portion is rather small and the price is rather extravagant. Was there to celebrate my friend鈥檚 birthday, probably wouldn鈥檛 go there on a day to day basis. Haha

Happy Diwali!! Feeling the mood more while devouring into this box of sweets from a lesser known shop highly recommended by my Indian colleague. Boy, it was good! Just a teeny bit sweet 馃槄

They have a whole selection of sweets. Got to check it out if you enjoy rich and dense desserts. I really appreciate the use of spices in Indian sweets, like cardamom, saffron etc.

In my box (left to right) we have the Pista roll, Mawa Peda, Kaju Katli, Sev Barfi. 馃槏

Pista roll - Kaju Pista roll is an amazing combination of nutty flavors of cashews and pistachios rolled into one. Soft & chewy with an acceptable sweetness.

Mawa peda - Milk fudge favored with cardamom. Insanely buttery, rich, milky and it melts in your mouth! Mawa is a milk byproduct that is thicker than regular milk and has a consistency similar to that of ricotta cheese or paneer.

Kaju katli - Directly translates as cashew slice. The festive treat is a cashew nut and milk based sweet decorated with silver varq.

Sev Barfi - Barfi is a basic fudge from Indian cuisine made of milk, sugar and ghee. This Sev (crunchy noodle made of chickpea flour) barfi is made with unsalted - deep fried crunchy strands of gram flour, milk, unsweetened mava, rose essence, sugar and nuts. This is a House special, was told it is an uncommon sweet and people love the little surprise of a sweet made from sev!

This is by far one of the best salted egg custard buns I have tried, at a very affordable price. Most of the custard buns are either too sweet or that there is no distinct salted egg yolk taste, but this was lovely... The only thing that gripes me was that it was too watery and the custard flowed out immediately when I bit into it. Otherwise, it鈥檚 a good custard bun! I liked that they used baked skin rather than the normal pau skin, which was a refreshing change.


This was a very unique dim sum that I have never seen before... it was deep fried to a fine crisp with mee sua and Chinese sausage as filling. The exterior was a little dry and hard in my opinion, but the inside was delicious... and it goes very well with the chili at the side! Yum!
