Rather obscure location that takes a while to walk to (under the sun) but What Value For Money!!! Where else can u find 90g of beautifully seasoned steak for 5 dollars nett? Didnt really like the chicken personally but the fennel onion pasta was really good, and the seabass was fresh and tender as well(ala carte 10nett add-on). Lots and lots of protein for a meat lover at a really reasonable price.
Dont get me wrong, it's not that the pork ribs with its flavourful sauce and tender texture is bad, but the chicken totally stole the show. Skily smooth and incredibly soft, it pairs very well with the chili and soy sauce. Now i finally understand why the main branch@balestier is so famous. This could actually be my favourite white chicken rn
Signature noodles(5 nett+1$half egg) Asked for abalone sauce but they forgot to give me so meh. The fishballs are really good tho no idea how they make fishballs so flavourfull and juicy. Quite mediocre otherwise without the abalone(or sauce) and definitely dont order the eggs lol(they said japanese eggs but its just half a soft boiled egg no marinade whatsoever)
Salt baked chicken thigh(5.9nett) come on this is the reason why everyone comes here. U know theyre confident of their chicken when they make u use chopsticks and spoons. Supremely tender and succulent, u really dont need anything other than chopsticks to devour this beautiful meat. Really well seasoned with depth of flavour on its own, but goes well with the mindblasting(lmao it was good) sauce. Loved the chili lime sauce so much i added it to my noodles. Just cos its addictive doesnt mean it doesnt pack a punch tho. Super worth it for 5.9
Does this place never fail to deliver? Apparently they pride themselves on consistency and not just taste
Pork ragout baked rice (7.9nett) the tomato sauce is lively, with both the olives and edamames being great additions. For 7.9 french fare, quite value for money but could definitely do with a lot more meat
Raclette cheese fondue(14.9nett) was delicious as well with the raclette cheese being really creamy and rather mellow. The black pepper made it more savoury tho
Forget your table manners if youre gonna dig into this samurai! A true definition of glorious mess, it's pure umami with rather creative elements. While each component's flavour may not be distinct, together they meld into a umami bomb that i polished off within minutes. May seem expensive for a "slice of pizza" at a "kopitiam", but it's definitely worth it as they dont cut corners with ingredients, with whole prawns found within. Kudos to the ingenuity and definitely try this if youre a big umami fan
PS the crispy bonito flakes are sprinkled on top so do be careful esp when theres wind arnd so that it doesnt fall everywhere
A moreish oxtail stew that just warms Ur soul.(19.2NETT) Might I say that everything was done to perfection? >< Esp the oxtail oh so tender and even the tendon was stewed to a glorious gelatinous mess that just pulls apart
For ~$11 the lunch set was such a steal!!! Noodles had a decent bite and everything else was really impressive! Side of wings and charsiu were flavourful, and the chili and ikan bilis was crunchy and so aromatic!
So many big big prawns that's half peeled for our convenience. Would love it to have more wok hei though. Not bad.
