Besides the existing swiss rolls, cookies and cakes, there is a new lineup that includes rarely seen traditional handmade Hainanese kueh know as yi bua and a collaboration with the famous Taiwanese crispy chicken joint, MONGA.

The handmade Yi Bua ($7.90 for 6 pieces) comes in two flavours, the traditional one in white is a steamed dumpling made with glutinous rice and potato flour and filled with a sweetened mixture of gula melaka, grated coconut filling, ginger juice and crushed roasted peanut. The modernized one in pink comes with additional peanuts in it. Both are shaped in a triangular form with a banana leaf at the base for easy consumption.

The Hainanese MONGA Crispy Chic Toast Bun with Ice Lemon Tea ($9.90) will be available till 31 July, and it comes with an XXL crispy fried chicken sandwiched between two soft fluffy buns, with cheese, tomato, cucumber and lettuce added to it. You can also enjoy this sandwich with sides such as coleslaw, Hainanese curry sauce or a sweet & sour tomato sauce. If you prefer something sweet, there is a whole range of butter cakes with flavours such as Rum and Raisin ($9), Teh Tarik and Kopi Guyou, and to wash it all down, there is the Bao Cha Series of milk tea such as the Oolong Milk Tea ($4.80) which comes with konjac pearls in it.

A great find has got to the Newspaper Hainanese Curry Rice which is a rice dish served on a newspaper designed sheet and our regular order is the Mama Wee Curry Chicken Drumstick Set ($7.80) which never goes wrong. Another dish that we have tried for the first time is the Hae Bee Hiam Aglio Olio with Grilled Chicken Chop ($12.80) from the Uncle Robert Hainanese Western & BBQ menu. This pasta dish is not for the faint hearted as the spice will hit you from the first bite and there is a generous amount of hae bee hiam in it. The grilled chicken chop is nothing fantastic, just the generic one that you can get elsewhere too, but a good protein source.

Not good. The pork belly was tough and the braising liquid was found wanting, despite the addition of dried cuttlefish? Which was very tough. Very sad for this price

Egg was not bad at all. Chili was good too because it's less spicy than normal without compromising on any of the flavour so you can heap more onto the food without burning your mouth haha

The kway was delicious though, it has a bite and it's made a lot better with the translucent flavourful soup suitably amped up with white pepper. Get it on its own without the overpriced sad claypot pork belly

Overall hits and misses, I won't make a trip here. Come here if you're in the area before/after the crowd, and know damn well exactly what to order

This was delicious, the pumpkin sweetness came through, but just enough such that it's still a savoury porridge. The meatballs had a pleasant mushy "fibrous" texture, kinda reminiscent of xlb filling. Ultimately this was a win, but the plain pumpkin porridge only costs 2+, which is what a rational foodie should choose haha(idk if you're allowed to add on ingredients to that, otherwise everyone would do that)

The gula melaka Kaya was fantastic. Really complex flavour. Butter was soft and salted, and the bread was neither the soft and well crisped up kind or the thin and super crispy kind. It's got a good bite and might not be for everyone. Since every component is on point, got to give credit where it's due. A very solid rendition that's reasonably priced too

Gf said she's had better but ok lah she's from Malaysia I don't doubt she's had better Kaya. Lavender for one does(and there's one at jewel alr) but I enjoyed this very much nonetheless
