Noodles are sooo good. Soo chewy, it's the soft type so those who like al dente might find it too soft. Dark sauce is flavourful, soup is tasty, has a fragrant huadiao flavour. Meatball not nice, flavour texture cmi. Get the bursting meatball instead. Shallots r v crisp and fragrant, ikan crunchy, minced meat tasty. Lots of spinach. Egg creamy but wished it was hot. I like that the ikan and shallots are kept separate so they remain crisp, and u can add the amount u want. Really enjoyed this meal!

The broth was a bit spicy, and while it was quite seafoody I think we preferred if there was more of that natural sweetness. The prawn balls (steamed and fried) were bouncy and tasted like the prawn paste you get at hotpot restaurants. The prawns were pretty large and fresh. Would rather go for the noodles with wanton & meatballs, it’s more satisfying! And also much cheaper.

So yummy! What a pity that they’ve closed on 27 Aug. There’s options for gong zai mian, youmian, and thick noodles. I chose youmian! It was done al dente so it had a nice bite, texture was good. Tossed in a scallion (& garlic?) oil + dark sauce mix, it was v fragrant and delish. There’s 2 stalks of blanched crunchy kailan too.

The handmade wanton and handmade pork balls were soooo soft and juicy? Loved the chives flavour in the wanton. Probably the softest wantons & meatballs
I've ever had. There isn’t any filler I believe, just meat. I do appreciate a bit of a bite since usually wantons/meatballs aren’t as soft, but this I enjoyed a lot too!

Definitely would reco and I hope they will appear in sg again~

Yums! The porridge was of a nice consistency, smooth and not too thick and goopy, yet also not watery. The meatballs were also seasoned so it was very flavourful. Youtiao was crisp! Satisfied and would definitely be back despite the 20 min wait.

It’s hard to go wrong with mantou! I liked the crispiness. Haidilao’s mantou fares better tho, this was a bit too bready/floury inside, wasn’t as shiok.

It’s alright, nothing wrong with it but just not memorable. A pretty typical dumpling!

None of us liked this! We ordered one non-spicy and one spicy - the non spicy one was way better. This had a sour taste that didn’t match and was not spicy at all.

This was good - crisp outside, moist and juicy inside, not too heavily seasoned. I liked it tho I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s v spectacular, but it is better than average.

This is a major skip lol I like my ssp to be crunchy, or at the very least, show that it used to have a crunch before being doused in sauce. This was just soft, and the sauce was average. I liked the generous amount of capsicums and pineapples in it tho.

THIS veg dish tho. Was v yummy everyone liked it! Seems simple - cabbage fried with garlic and chili, plus some pork slices, but somehow it tasted really good, and eating it hot also added to the enjoyment. If you only order 2 dishes here, let it be the tomato egg and this. Unless you’re carnivorous and need a meat dish.

Their veggies here are all p flavourful, not sure if they put any MSG in it to attain that taste. But it’s nicely fried with garlic, crunchy and not overcooked. Tasty but not spectacular.
