This was their Assam fish head, although it was so thick it tasted much like a curry fish head with the sourness of Assam. The fish head was definitely fresh, bathed in spicy and sour gravy that packed some heat. What appealed also were vegetables and pineapple that always tasted so good with Assam curry.
Also tried their Salted egg fried pumpkin which were yummy starters. Our next trip would probably be to try their signature crab beehoon.

For stellar zi char, head on over to this popular zi char stall at Serangoon Garden Market. They have quite a cult following, and has the Burpple community's stamp of approval. Take Tastemaker Nobelle Liew's lead and order the Pumpkin Sauce with Butter Prawns ($12), a dish she declares as her favourite among the rest she tried. While it may seem pricey for four balls of prawns, she assures you that each prawn's actually pretty big, crunchy, juicy and fresh. The winning touch however has to be the sauce. Tastemaker Nobelle describes it to be "creamy and luscious, yet retaining a tad of the characteristic sandy mouthfeel root veggies have; sweet yet still slightly savoury, with a tinge of curry spice." We're sold. While you're here, also consider the Pork Knuckle ($18), which is truly value-for-money. This rendition offers a lot of meat for that price (a fraction of what most restaurants would charge) and the skin sports a good crisp.
Avg Price: $15 per person

Craving this Penang Laksa we tried awhile back at Gu Cheng. Cooked in a fish-based, spicy and tangy soup, the rice noodles are plump and springy—my absolute favourite!

This place is truly underrated. If you're looking for some good Penang dishes at affordable prices, check out Gu Cheng.

There are places that you visit as a child with your parents and you continue visiting because the food and the restaurant setting is just so nostalgic.

Ivins ivins is one of my most dependable and Favourite places to go when I need to Savour homecooked style Peranakan food without paying through my nose. I have tried many Peranakan restaurants and with the steep prices that one pays, no one comes close to offer the value and taste that ivins ivins consistently offers.

For dinner , I had the Nonya chap chye , Babi pong Teh ( stewed fork tender lean pork in a rich brown sauce ) , Assam curry fish slices and tahu goreng.

Every dish was so good and had such complex levels of taste especially the Babi pong Teh and the Assam fish . The chap chye was cooked to the right texture and the broth was so flavourful I drank up till the last drip. The tahu goreng was so generously topped with homemade peanut sauce ( with coarsely grounded peanuts that adds so much texture and flavour to the fish ).

Even the lightly flavoured coconut rice was so tasty I could eat it on its own.

It helps that the dishes were served in Claypots which meant that they kept warm for a Long time and the latent heat helps to accentuate the Flavours .

You may be delighted to find that each dish costs between 4.50 to 6.50 - extremely pocket friendly.

With such flavour , quality and value - it's no wonder that ivins ivins is the only Peranakan restaurant that I will ever patronise for a long time to come .

Everything we ordered were very good including this dish. Perhaps it was because we had so many outstanding dishes that we felt the tofu prawn did not stand out as much. Moreover, the kids began to compare it with the one we absolutely love at Joo Heng. If you do not have any pre-conceived notion of what it is supposed to taste like, you will probably also enjoy this dish.

You can really taste the wok hei in this dish. The kailan was still crunchy and the beef tender.
