Face it, you can't always be like a hippie and go to out of the place cafés just for mediocre food. Here's a review of easily accessible restaurants!

The beef noodle was good, with a spicy and savoury beef broth and firm noodles. Bamboo shoots were cleaned and cooked well. Dan dan noodles (dry) was quite okay, but the small bowl of soup was stellar! Also tried the fried rice which was bland. The Xiao long baos were pretty disappointing. The skin was too thick at the top, very little soup inside with mushy minced meat. Had a few other forgettable dishes as well. I would recommend just getting the noodles here.

This large pot of piping hot seafood hor fun is guaranteed to fill you up! There is also plenty of sliced fish, squid and prawn. Very satisfying, especially for its price of $8.80 (weekday lunch set). Set also comes with a very refreshing yuzu tea!

The chicken collagen soup is delicious! I finished the soup down to the very last drop. The chicken meat was quite disappointing though, tasted a bit stale although it was tender. The prawns were very fresh! Quite expensive at $25++ per pax.

The broth is good! Full of seafood goodness and spicy. Pretty little seafood given, pieces of squid prawns and mussels here and there. I would recommend sharing between 2 people.

The rice was quite wet, and overall felt like it was just a tiny step up from the average food court Korean food stall. The crispy seafood does help with the umami factor though! Priced at $14++. The portion is suitable for 1 pax.

The one thing to get here is this glorious tomato cheese kimchi pancake. The tomato base Korean pancake was slightly savoury, crispy at the sides and spongy in the middle, topped with a pool of mozzarella cheese. Seriously drool worthy!

Choice of 3 stews here: Beef ribs, pork ribs and chicken. I tried all and found the chicken stew the most pathetic one, in terms of portion, price and taste. At $16/$18++ for one pax, I feel the stews are rather expensive. Each stew comes with plain rice and you can top up $6 for a rice ball. I preferred the tuna rice ball over the anchovy. Skip the steam egg, which wasn't smooth and very ordinary. There is free flow of kimchi and mash potato with corn.

Huge, chunky pieces of fish that were pretty fresh. The slightly lumpy and cold rice wasn't as appealing though. The mochi that came as a dessert (set lunch) was great, with a smooth cream custard filling in the middle. Do make reservations during weekends especially if you're coming in a big group.

I liked that you can control the amount of belachan in the Spicy Pan Mee. Nothing fanciful but I enjoyed the wobbly soft boiled egg. Traditional Sarawak Noodle was quite bad. Noodles were clumpy and and rather dry. I think it's expensive for the quality but the place is rather conducive for group gatherings.

The slow cooked steak was expectedly tender, fats melt in the mouth shiokness. Don't expect pinkish medium rare perfection but it is still a good piece of steak! They currently have a special promo of $35++ free flow of steak, fries and coleslaw for weekends!

Very attractive 1 for 1 promotion going on now! Meat is not bad, thinly sliced and fresh. Pork base broth is good, flavourful and makes the vegetables delicious. Not a fan of the Sukiyaki broth - soy sauce, sugar and mirin, as it was too light and sweet. I was too overzealous and dumped in a lot of vegetables which made the soup overflow a bit, so be careful!

The soup here is average, could be thicker but can easily satisfy anyone's BKT craving. Pork ribs and pig's stomach were not bad. Braised platter which had tender braised pork was merely decent as the flavours didn't come through. The Ampang Yong Tau Foo is the must get dish here! Overall, this place pales in comparison to other popular BKT eateries, mainly because of the big price difference. Expect to pay $10.90++ for one bowl of pork ribs. Total bill for these dishes came up to around $60. Service is friendly, but the soup refills seemingly come in waves rather than on request.
