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.

The slabs of pork may look thin for some but to me, it allowed the pau, cabbage and the parsley to complement the flavourful, juicy and tender pork. I’ve tried countless braised pork buns prior to this, including homemade ones, but most certainly not from a place which specialised in it. Through looks alone, the sauce spotted an intense dark hue and gave off a thick glossy sheen which accentuated the bits of minced meat embedded within, tempting one to explore the flavours packed within. Still not expecting much though, my first few bites had me thinking, “Okay, this is unique. Not exactly mind-blowing but I can see why it’s their specialty.” After a while though, especially after savouring their sweet, savoury and umami dark pork sauce on its own, I got hooked. In fact, writing this now, several days after my encounter, I’m still salivating at the thought of it. Flavourful in a more subtle kind of way, if that makes sense.
