Wouldn't eat this again.

I was horrified when my Latte (8oz, $4.50 nett) came in a paper cup. I try to avoid disposables when I can.. & this came without any pretty art, which was disappointing. It tasted fine, but it was an unfortunate mismatch in expectations from the pictures I’d previously seen.

Heard so much about Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, what with it being on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list 3 years in a row (2021 - 2023). Maybe this hyped it up too much in my mind, but I felt that what I ate was just.... Okay. Not bad (except 1 dish), but certainly not outstanding IMHO.

Let's get the offending dish out of the way: 𝑮𝒓𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒅 𝑷𝒐𝒓𝒌 𝑵𝒆𝒄𝒌 ($17.00++). I don't know how one can mess up pork neck, but it was actually pretty dry & tough to eat. Didn't expect that, & definitely wouldn't order it again.

The only good thing about my Taro Milk Tea with Pearls ($5.00, M) were the pearls, which are an add-on (i.e. not part of the standard offering). Perfectly bouncy texture, great chew to it, & tastes slightly sweet. One of the best ones I've ever had!

Unfortunately, everything else was disappointing; even the great pearls couldn't salvage this experience. In a nutshell, I didn't know what liquid I was drinking - no taste of taro, & barely any taste of tea.

Perhaps the staff that made my drink was really stressed; there was a massive order that came in before mine. The moment I stepped in, she immediately said "need to wait 15 minutes ah". I appreciated the transparency, & could tell she was stressed. I went out to run errands & popped back 15 minutes later.

I do hope this was an off-day - I mean, there *was* a huge order placed before mine. But to be frank, I'm not exactly motivated to return...

Also: No filming allowed inside the store (there's a sign that says this). Not sure of the rationale behind this, but it's worth noting if that's something important to any of you content creators.

I didn't expect any wok hey from the Hokkien Mee ($29++), & that indeed was the case. Love how generous the portion is & how plentiful the ingredients are..

.. But the sauce was too thick & so salty that I couldn't finish my last bite of noodles. This rarely happens, but it was just too much. Ultimately, I wouldn't order this again.

Their western food options have tended to fair better in my books, but I was really craving local cuisine having just spent 3 weeks in Europe.. Hahaha

I bought the last portion of ban mian at 13:45hrs. Mee hoon kueh was sold out by then..

.. It was okay. Soup was umami, but the noodles themselves were ordinary.

Also, they messed up my order & gave me a standard bowl - when I ordered the one with abalone 'cos if I'm waiting this long for my food, I'd better be boujee to make it worth my while. Was rushing for time, & hence didn't get this rectified.

Wasn't terrible, but also wasn't worth the wait. I left in a rush to my next appointment feeling pretty grumpy & dissatisfied.

I was craving something sweet to finish up my coffee with, & ordered the Chocolate Croissant ($4.80+) as a treat. Unfortunately, this was such a struggle to finish.

T'was heated up cheerfully, but the inside was so tough to cut through & chew.. Felt tough like soggy cardboard. My sweet tooth craving was satisfied, but I was sad I spent money on this. Wouldn't order this again.

Yaks ($12+) was a promising option on Stack's waffles menu, but unfortunately fell flat. In theory, it sounded unique & appealing, but as an dish, the flavours of everything clashed with each other - mostly the coffee cream cheese & shoyu caramel IMHO. It was an odd mix of salty, bitter, sweet & creamy mixed into one.

I would've actually liked for the kaya flavour to be more prominent, but that's feedback on the soft serve on its own... I don't think any additional flavours are needed in this dish as an integrated whole. Wouldn't recommend this.

Long queue on Saturday at 12pm lunch, but turnover was quite quick. Cleared 9 people in front of me within 10 mins - IMHO, because of the systematic way of they take & prepare orders.

However... I really don't know what people are queueing for. This was a super ordinary bowl of prawn mee ($4). The soup wasn't as umami as I'd hoped for, they messed up my noodle type (gave me 面 instead of 米粉面), & there is a disproportionately large amount of noodles to ingredients.

It wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't return for this. Not sure what the hype is...

Had high hopes for Ah Gong BCM - I mean, claypot BCM sounds quite heavenly.. But the soup was super salty, & I wasn't the only one who felt this way.

Ingredients in the Signature Claypot Bak Chor Mee ($4.50) were not bad - minced pork, pork balls, dumplings & fish maw slices. But the soup... I can't. I'm sorry. I'm hoping this was just an off day.

Eh. $6 for 2 big prawns & 2 slices of fish cake. Some taugeh. Very average at best. Soup was nothing fancy...

The Oolong Cheese Tea ($4.50 nett) with Pearls (+$0.50 nett) left much to be desired.... Tea was disappointingly diluted, albeit I was comforted by the chewy, nicely done pearls.

I finished the pearls, but couldn't bring myself to do the same for the tea.

Also took a while to be prepared - which I can overlook if this was a good cup, but it unfortunately wasn't.

Pho was okay. The grilled cockles, however, were another story.

They tried to convince me that the 18/25 of the cockles that weren't open could be opened with a toothpick. I'm like... No.

Then they offered to re-grill the crap out of them & now I have blackened cockles. Which I poked & out of the 18 grilled, 9 still weren't opened. The ones that did open are opened ever so slightly that the width of a toothpick can't even fit in.

Just..... No. You may be comfortable with prying these open, but I'm not. I'm good, thank you very much
