Westlake is a old school 40+ year establishment located at the 2nd floor of a HDB flat located near Farrer Road MRT. This is an old HDB estate and the feel here is like I was transported back to the early 90s. The interior of the restaurant is also very old school with a sense of nostalgia that I may have came here for a meal once when I was still a kid.

The signature and most famous dish here, is the Kong Bak Bao. There are 2 types, the normal braised pork or the iberico pork. The sauce is the same, just that the Iberico is much more fatter and much more tender.

I had both before, and taste wise, it's equally good. The normal braised pork itself is already soft and tender. The Bao itself was also faintly sweet and just so compatible with the savouriness of the braised pork.

This is definitely the best Kong Bak Bao I ever had.

Comes to 18.8 after everything, usually comes w 5 pcs of buns

Predominantly sweet sauce with enough savouriness as well, dark and sticky enough. Pork belly was tender too, so good! The buns weren't soft/soggy (heard the jpoint branch isn't as consistent wrt the bun texture, but they allow ordering of one piece only iirc)

Westlake has a special place in my heart because this is where I ate my first kong bak pau and fell in love with it. The braised pork here is consistently tender and well-marinated in its thick, sweet sauce. The steamed buns are also extremely soft and fluffy, the perfect vehicle for the meat. However, there could be more vegetables to balance out the strong meatiness of this DIY burger.

In stark contrast to the Hei Zho tried at Le Coq, these had a chewier texture, akin to eating a thick fishcake. The skin was thin and crisp and was not overly oily as well. Despite being on the other end of the spectrum in terms of texture, I still highly enjoyed their version of the Prawn Roll which came with visible chunks of mushroom and orange bits (Which may be carrots or prawns?).

My next personal favourite goes to another in-house specialty for their ability to make a simple combination of ingredients go extremely well with one another and for its unique factor as I’ve not encountered this at any other restaurant. It came with circular pieces of Beancurd (Tau Huay) where you could taste the subtle sweetness from the beancurd itself, similar in taste to a hot Tau Huay without sugar found at a local hawker centre. It's immersed in a mixture of partially and fully cooked egg whites topped with small bits of sweet prawns and salted egg yolk before being surrounded with a lining of spinach. As mentioned, the ingredients used are simple but somehow paired excellently with one another - The more savoury sauce and salted egg yolk contrasting with the sweeter prawns, egg white and beancurd. A light and comforting dish that I highly recommend.
