Interesting dish w 2 types of horfun - the deep fried and the normal kind! Was good, we enjoyed it. Lala was v plump and sweet. I liked the deep-fried horfun soaked in sauce for a bit so that it's not dry, but still retains that crunch. Normal horfun was not bad, had some wokhei! Sauce was starchy but flavourful, had a nice seafoody 鲜甜 flavour from the lala. Veg was fresh and not overcooked! The only other place I've had deep-fried horfun was at enjoy eating house, and both this and enjoy’s versions were good.

Fried chicken was p nice! It was crisp and the batter was rather light. Chicken was juicy inside. Cheap and good!

This was alright, the fish was a bit fishy at the skin but for the most part it was quite fleshy and succulent. The soup is comforting and there’s lots of veg (baicai, and another unidentified veg) that added some natural sweetness to the soup! They allow for soup refills :)

A saucy savoury dish, had some wokhei! It’s alright but I don’t think I’ll get this again, it’s just a personal preference haha

This was not bad, was relatively tasty. It was good when dipped in honey too! I’ve tasted better but u wouldn’t mind having this again.

This was decent, I don’t really eat cuttlefish but this was pretty palatable.

Egg tofu was standard, prawns were crunchy and tasted pretty fresh, but what sealed the deal was the sauce! It was cooked w egg whites and was so tasty. I’m not sure if there’s msg but it was very flavourful, the prawn juices probably contributed as well. Would recommend!

The claypot rice was pretty nice, though not mindblowing. The pieces of in-bone chicken were tender and soft, and the flavour reminded me of my fav sesame oil chicken from clementi 448. The leaner chicken breast pieces weren’t as tender, but not dry either. The rice was decent, with crunchy burnt bits below. Could have been more fragrant tho, there’s a lack of the sesame oil smell. Lap cheong was of good quality! Not the lousier tasting cheap kind. They gave a reasonable amount of veg too! Overall it’s rather decent - tho not the best I’ve had, but still quite satisfying :)

They should call themselves sembawang san lou beehoon because this outshines their claypot rice by a lot. The beehoon has a nice char on top, which means u get some smokey wokhei flavours. Inside that blanket of beehoon you get piping hot eggs, prawns that were crunchy, rather decently tender pork slices and veg. It’s a sauce-less beehoon but the beehoon inside is so moist and tasty. We were really satisfied with this!

My bf likes this more compared to the nearby white restaurant’s baimifen, which he really enjoys, so that says a lot. For me I like both, they are different but both delicious so it’s unfair to compare. This one brings heavier flavours and is more salty, catered for those who r more 重口味, while white restaurant’s is also flavourful but more clean-tasting, feels less artery-clogging :p

Definitely would return for this! Will try their other zichar stuff since this was so nicely done.

Don’t usually eat eefu noodles so I’m not the best person to comment, but this was not bad mainly because it came piping hot and was quite tasty. The savoury sauce was quite nice, not overly salty and wasn’t starchy! There’s pork, veg, prawn, yam cubes (which I don’t eat) & a runny egg. Not sure if eefu noodles are meant to be soft but this was rather soft but it wasn’t rly soggy / didn’t become smooshy.

Tried this as this was one of the few stalls opened at 9+pm on a weekday night after our run. We were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was, and at such reasonable prices too! If I’m not wrong, we paid

This was crispy and juicy! There were crunchy water chestnuts in the roll as well (iirc) which is a big plus for me, because it makes the textures even better.
