Crab promotion - highly recommended! Not sure will last till when..
2 crabs (600-700g each) include 6 mantou $68 (1 flavour)
3 crabs (600-700g each) $98 include 9 mantou (up to 2 flavours)

We got 3 crabs split in chili and bee hoon soup (+$2). Expected smaller sized crabs but impressed that the crabs were not so! They were fleshy and had roe - yummy! Chili crab was very egg-y and not spicy, will go well with rice! Bee hoon soup was average so will want to try other flavour next time.

There is also free ice cream at the end of the meal! Quite crowded on weekend but crowd is well managed.

Chili crab dish very popular, good value too. Butter prawns and prawn paste chicken highly recommended too.

Shimmering Sand Crab - Yummy!
Rich creamy and buttery goodness! Good for dipping mantous too. Must try!!

A tip that the waiter here educated us with before - if you want more meat, opt for male crabs. If you want more roe, opt for female crabs. Usually they recommend female for dry sauces such as the chili and shimmering sand so the roe soaks up the sauces too. But if you prefer meat to roe, request for male crabs!

Sesame Chicken $16, Sweet potato leaf $12, Bean sauce Song Fish Head $22, Ginger and spring onion Pork Liver and Kidney $26

Always a good meal with family here and even though prices have increased over the years, we have never found another steamed Song fish head that comes close! The fish is fresh, sauce is savoury and the dish is drizzled with crispy pork lard.

The tangy and spicy chili also deserves a star as it goes very well with the pork liver and kidney.

Joo heng is always consistent and definitely understated, must try!!!!
