An old school pau shop - taste and standard wise I would think pretty normal (we tried char siew bao, da bao, and siew mai) but somehow there’s something about these paus that make them so irreplaceably nostalgic! Perhaps receiving them all packed into a plain cardboard box also plays a part in its exuding of old school vibes.

Think old school places like these may reduce in number over time, so I treasure my every visit here.

A standard bowl of Hei Mee. Flavourful broth with springy yellow noodles, a classic no frills hawker dish done well. Prawns were fresh too.

Not too long of a queue and wait on a weekday morning, which was nice as we were hungry!

Cravings for fries: Satisfied! ✅ Super sinful, crispy fries with with salty toppings of your choice. It’s perfect if you’re really craving for some savoury comfort food. Its saltiness was very addictive, I think I couldn’t stop after my first one, and I ate until my tongue and the roof of my mouth hurt. 😂

Great for sharing as well, the bowl is huge. It is definitely wallet friendly with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal, and they allow you to pick different flavours for each bowl. Do note the shop is only for takeaways only.

Fairly average Taiwanese food for a food court standard. However with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal, it’s really a steal - you wouldn’t be able to get such food at half of the $6.80 pricing. Definitely would be my go-to meal if I’m around the area and looking to fill my tummy while saving money.

Do note that only cash is allowed, so come prepared. The Kopitiam card is not accepted here as that gives you another 10% off.

The dory fillet was fried till crisp and delicious, I didn’t even need any sauces to accompany it. The sambal was good too though - it had a good level of spice for a nice kick but not overwhelmingly too hot for the average Singaporean tastebuds. I liked that it was thoughtfully packed separately from the rest of the meal. Rice was fragrant too.

I think everything in the box came together well, and it was overall a pleasant meal. The shop is a takeaway stand at the basement of AMK Hub, so there’re no seats for dine in. With the Burpple Beyond meal, it’s really a steal. I’ll definitely be back to use up all my 1-for-1 deals here!

Both meats were very flavourful, roasted till tender. The siew yoke was crispy on the edges and chewy on the inside. Delicious! Pretty worth the walk into the ulu industrial area. I’ve not tried her sister’s version before but I enjoyed this one very much - my friend has tried both and she prefers Mei Mei’s. :P

We paid $11 for a plate of duck rice and a plate of charsiew + siew yoke rice, which is pretty reasonable for the quality. I heard that if you want better cuts, you’ve to come earlier.

We visited on a weekday afternoon and the coffeeshop was quite busy with the workers around the industrial area coming here for their lunchtime. We were just two people, so it was easy to slot ourselves in.

The owner was so sweet, she was serving with a smile - that made a great impression. :)

A standard bowl of pho - I liked that the soup was quite peppery, and the beef not overcooked. Serving size was average, and there was an appropriate amount of meat (a few slices of beef and two meatballs). While I wished there were more greens in this dish, my friend appreciated that they didn’t pile our bowl with leaves. Personal preference I guess. :P

Finding cheap food in the CBD area is a challenge, but we were delighted when we found a bunch of Burpple 1-for-1 deals in this food hall. It definitely made this bowl of pho extremely affordable, a rare find for the location!

Pancake was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Peanut fillings were crunchy and tasty. Overall a pretty nice minjiangkueh! If only it was hot or warm - that would’ve really put the cherry on top.

With the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, this is definitely super worth it especially for the location. You’re probably not going to get such cheap food anywhere else in the immediate vicinity! The pancakes also come in two other flavours - coconut and red bean.

I visited on a Sunday afternoon and there was no queue at all!

Think deconstructed Vietnamese spring rolls in a bowl, with marinated roast-grilled pork cutlets on top. And instead of the usual salad dressing, you top it with nuoc cham, the dipping sauce. Quite a refreshing salad bowl!

I find it a little pricey without burpple since it’s not a huge serving, but with burpple it’s pretty alright. On top of the burpple deal, you can also pay with ShoppeePay and purchase a 50cent off voucher to save even more.

The shop is takeaway only - no seats are available. You’ve to walk into the little mall to find the shop tucked in towards the left side of the Space.

This store piqued my interest with the recent new openings in different locations, having a menu with a range of western food choices at neighbourhood coffeeshops.

The mushroom soup was okay, it tasted more cream than mushroom though. At least it wasn’t too salty. I would’ve enjoyed this much more if the mushroom taste was stronger, or perhaps if they named it Cream Soup. :P Food was average, but not too bad for the price relative to the serving size, which was quite big. Pretty alright for a starving diner, and very cheap with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal!

Overall, the food here is quite okay with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, I’d come back again if I was nearby and wanted a large amount of food for cheap. Do note that you have to get 2 of the same dishes with the deal, so perhaps it’s not ideal for people who want to try different things. It’s an additional 30 cents for a paper box if you’d like to do takeaway.

Location-wise, it’s just opposite Clementi Mall, so not too difficult to get to by MRT. We visited on a Saturday early evening and it wasn’t too crowded.
