Reviews

From the Burpple community

They have a total of 3 outlets with 1 being a dedicated BBQ skewers place, which justified the restaurant’s popularity among the foodies. We decided to order dishes that are not 辣子鸡 or 手撕包菜 and ended up with 小笼包, 虾米四季豆, 新疆大盘鸡 and a few BBQ skewers this time round. Flavours wise you are going to get the full-on savoury stir fry goodness while the portion is definitely substantial for the price. However you will surely feel thirsty at the end for all the MSG in it and they might have altered the spiciness to suit the local palates as it is not as spicy as the rest of the other Chinese restaurants.

We’ve always known this place to boast meandering lines along the main Chinatown street. Although dining in won’t resume for awhile, glad that we can still satisfy Sichuan food cravings from the comforts of home! Overall, their food was highly flavourful. A bit too oily for our palates, but we can see how some would love it.

Our recommendations (4 ⭐️) would be their 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐝 𝐞𝐠𝐠𝐬 & 𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐞𝐬 ($6.30) and 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐫 𝐞𝐠𝐠𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐭 ($8.30). The former involved perfectly executed silky eggs with chunky tomatoes. The latter had ultra tender - almost silky - and juicy eggplants. While the beer element was subtle, the eggplants soaked up the addictive spicy and flavourful sauce that made it difficult to stop reaching for more bites.

The 𝐦𝐚𝐩𝐨 𝐭𝐨𝐟𝐮 (3.5 ⭐️; $6.30) was a classic Sichuan dish done well and stronger in 麻than 辣 element. The 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐟 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐢 (3.5 ⭐️; $13.10) was nothing spectacular but we appreciated the tender bites (despite the reheating) and mild fiery element. Only let down dish was the 𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐝 𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐞 (2.5 ⭐️; $6.30) that was more akin to oily plain rice with very little seafood. We would recommend sticking to plain rice instead to pair with the flavourful dishes.

This multi-unit food empire draws crazy queues in spite of the capacity. We were lucky to visit between the dinner and supper crowds. This is a standard PRC staple. Nothing to criticise nor praise.

More like spiced than spicy. That's not a weakness. The garnish was shiok. The ribs were also quite good. This multi-unit food empire draws crazy queues in spite of the capacity. We were lucky to visit between the dinner and supper crowds.

Not the best. Some places treat this dish as gourmet, giving attention to slicing and cooking the meat and preparing the sauce. Here it's fuss-free, using basic pork and basic seasoning.

Lamb, pork belly, grilled bread. The bread was as good as any PRC BBQ, the pork was acceptable, while the lamb cmi. This multi-unit food empire draws crazy queues in spite of the capacity. We were lucky to visit between the dinner and supper crowds.
