The menu at this bustling Chinese eatery near Kallang MRT may baffle with their wackily-translated dish names, but nothing will stand between our Tastemakers and good food. The food here is excellent, value for money and boasts perfect vibes for a night of drinks and bites. Even if you've never been a fan of pig's ears, the Pig's Ear of Cucumber ($10), a refreshing salad tossed in a tangy sauce may change your mind, like it did with Tastemaker Ni Eats. Nurse a cold Lao Te beer while munching on the delightfully crisp Deep Fried Pork Intestines ($16) that are strongly seasoned with a good kick of spice and devoid of any 'porky' smell. Take your pick from their variety of perfectly seasoned barbecued skewers — Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang loves the Bacon Volume Enoki Mushroom ($3, dish number 2017 in their abyss of a menu). Keep room for the Tomato ($1.50), which is in fact an eggplant grilled to a silky texture, peppered with chilli powder, and topped with chopped leeks. If you're here for a late dinner, consider the Wonton ($10), essentially a large bowl of chef-chosen ingredients like sausages, cabbage and beancurd skin, stir-fried ma la style. Yum!
Avg price: $15 per person
