We also tried the Hainan Beef Brisket Hor Fun Soup ($13.80). The broth is very clean tasting and this is abit like a Hainan style beef pho - I thought it could be more flavourful.

The Tomato Omelette ($10.50) is surprisingly smooth and I like the eggs are not overcooked. This is not the ketchupy kind of tomato omelette (which I like as well) and the taste is on the milder side.

The Eggplant with Salted Fish ($13.80) is very fragrant and full of wok hei - this is great with rice.

The Hainan Special Salt Baked Chicken (Half $24.50) is tender, savoury and tasty - goes really well with the chilli and ginger sauce!

Coffee Addiction 喝上引 is a small coffee place at Capitol (#B2-25) and their Shabu Shabu Pork Belly Prawn Noodle ($8.80) is pretty good. The prawn broth is rich and full of umami, and it goes really well with the prawns, pork belly, egg and noodles. The lard and fried shallots add an extra layer of fragrance to this hearty bowl of noodles. I wasn’t expecting much but this turned out to be pretty satisfying!

Love the Stewed Beef Brisket Noodles ($7.60)! The beef brisket has a good balance of meat and fats, and they are braised in a savoury sauce that goes well with springy egg noodles. The noodles can be replaced with chee cheong fun too and the soft rice noodle rolls are a wonderful match with the beef brisket. Feel like eating this again!

Off to a tea house to escape the sweltering heat! Located on the 2nd and 3rd storey of a shophouse in Chinatown, Daydreamer Tea Clan is woody and cosy tea house with natural daylight streaming in.

We ordered the $48 High Tea Set for 2 pax which comes with your choice of tea (妃子笑 or 画之行云曦), lotus leaf rice (it ran out so we had glutinous rice chicken instead), char siu bao, pine nuts, tea egg, snowflake pastry and tea jelly. The food is simple but pretty decent. The snowflake pastry is a nutty nougat with coconut shavings. I love the refreshing tea jelly - it has the fragrance of tea and the texture is akin to a chewy konnyaku jelly.

We opted for Fei Zi Xiao(妃子笑), which is a smooth and mellow black tea with a hint of lychee aftertaste. Interestingly, it is named after a Tang Dynasty poem that alluded to Yang Guifei’s love for lychee: 一骑红尘妃子笑,无人知是荔枝来。The teapot is really interesting - it dispenses the tea when you twist the cup. Swipe left to see it in action!

Overall, it was a delightful experience. The owner was really friendly and he took the time to go through the different teas with us. There is even a 5% discount on weekdays. Definitely a place to consider if you are looking for a quiet space to chill with friends or enjoy some time alone.


The Braised Beef Combination Noodles ($17.90) from Lenu Chef Wai’s Noodle Bar comes with braised Wagyu beef, tendon and shank in a robust beef broth. The beef is braised thoroughly and fall-apart tender. The braised beef soup is packed with flavour and it goes really well with the thin la mian. This is one hearty bowl of beef noodles that exceeded my expectations!

The Signature Set ($188 for 6 pax) is really worth it. The set comprises 8 items, of which 4* come with two choices to choose from. We ordered:
1. *Herbal Roast Duck (Angelica Herb)
2. *Hotplate Tofu with Minced Meat & Pickled Vegetables
3. *Baby Kai Lan with Salted Fish & Lime
4. *Stewed Pork Ribs with Yam & Shiitake Mushrooms
5. Fish Maw Thick Soup with Seafood
6. Marmite Chicken Thigh
7. Steamed Fish Slices with Soy Sauce
8. Steamed Rice

We also ordered some a la carte items: Ee-Fu Noodles with Conpoy and Golden Mushroom ($14.90 for small), Claypot Eggplant with Diced Mushrooms & Minced Meat ($16.60 for small) and Braised Pork Belly with Spicy Sour Mustard Greens ($18.90).

The food is generally very good! The herbal roast duck is very tender and fragrant, the fish maw soup is full of ingredients and delicious with a dash of vinegar, and the eggplant is savoury and full of wok-hei. Some of the dishes are a tad salty (eg. ee fu noodles) but they are tasty nonetheless. The portion is very generous and the service is fast (despite the dinner queue). Enjoyed this thoroughly!

I’m not a big fan of fried food in general but the Salted Crispy Chicken ($8.20) is not oily and the skin is so crispy and fragrant - can’t stop eating it! Sadly, I didn’t really enjoy the Sweet Potato Fries ($8.20) as they are rather thick and dry. The Fried Tempura ($7.50) has a chewy texture and it tastes like fried dough (it is actually fish paste mixed with flour) - I’m ok with this but not a big fan.

It has been a few years since I tried Eat 3 Bowls, and it is still the best 滷肉飯 I have had in Singapore🤤 The Braised Pork Rice ($7 + $1.70 for egg) features short-grain rice covered in glistening braised pork belly that literally melts in your mouth. The pork is quite fatty but it is not jelak for me - this is savoury, delicious and incredibly satisfying. The Chinese Cabbage ($5.50) is very soft and flavourful, which goes well with rice. Love this!

It’s been a while since I visited Fu Lin for their yong tau foo. I ordered the Dry Yong Tau Foo ($8.50 for 6 pieces + rice/thick beehoon) which is covered in their signature minced meat gravy. There is quite a number of fried and fresh ingredients to choose from and the meat sauce is tasty - thought it goes very well with rice. However, I wouldn’t recommend the bittergourd as it is a very thick cut and still raw and bitter in the middle. Wished they had fried eggplant and bitter gourd too! Nonetheless, the yong tau foo is still pretty good on the whole!
