10 pieces of filling dumplings with savoury marinated meat inside thick and chewy skin that comes with a crispy outer layer. It's good—not too oily, with tender and tasty meat. If only the skin wasn't as thick, it would definitely have a better overall taste.

6 pieces of piping hot and soupy xiao long bao served in a bamboo steamer basket. Each piece gives a savoury and soupy experience as it should be. The moist tender meat is well-proportioned, though the skin is quite mediocre. Still, it's delicious thanks to the flavourful soup inside.

Just some classic xiao long bao and dumplings to fill the stomach.

Best drink ever! That sinfully thick, rich, and sweet milkiness with a touch of aromatic tea is the best to have anytime, anywhere. The way they pull either the milk or tea is just so professional, and it makes you drool while you watch them make your drink. The frothy bubble effect is the result after it's pulled. Shiok Lah! One sip will make you stim!

Plain white rice topped with soft, fluffy, and creamy scrambled eggs, delicately drizzled with light soy sauce. To add more savouriness, a few cubes of savoury luncheon meat are scattered over the rice. While the rice itself may be a tad plain and dry, the well-executed scrambled eggs lend moisture to the dish, while the soy sauce adds an extra layer of flavour.

The luncheon meat, diced up into bite-sized pieces, provides a heartening sensation with every chunky, savoury bite.

A cozy meal at an affordable price. I added a bowl of glass noodles for an extra $0.50, bringing the total to $5.50. The mini hotpot comes with thick-cut dory fish, broccoli, a few strands of enoki mushrooms, Chinese cabbage and an egg. Although the egg and Chinese cabbage were out of stock when I visited near closing time, the owner generously compensated by adding more fish and broccoli. Thank you!🙇‍♂️

While it's called a mini hotpot, I recommend pouring all the ingredients into the soup to cook together, as the fuel is limited. Otherwise, you'll need to fork out an additional $0.50 for extra fuel. After cooking, I was greeted with a rich umami flavour thanks to the high concentration of MSG in the soup base. Though the soup base claims to be pork bone broth, it's actually just pork bone base MSG powder mixed with water. While it may not be the healthiest option and is quite salty, at least it packs a punch in terms of flavour.

Despite its simplicity, the cooked items were incredibly soft and melty, making it a challenge to scoop them up with chopsticks. In the end, I resorted to using a spoon and slurping straight from the pot. Basic as it may be, it definitely fills you up!

A branch from the original stall at Bedok, this plate of fried carrot cake comes with a deliciously dark sauce and a distinct wok hei flavour. It's mushy, eggy, and charred just right.

Hand-pulled noodles at its finest that redefine freshness. Each irregular strand of dough is meticulously kneaded on the spot, delivering a fantastic combination of bounce, chewiness, and a hint of richness. The generous portion of noodles, comes with five spicy dumplings, left my belly content beyond measure – perhaps a bit too much for my liking. The overall flavour profile was a harmonious blend of garlicky notes, moderated spiciness (though extra spice can be requested), and a subtle touch of vinegar that caters to local taste buds. Brace yourself for the lip-staining experience, as the vibrant red sauce might just replace your need for lipstick. 😂

Mixed Claypot Rice($15)
Be prepared to queue, and waiting up to an hour is not uncommon if you walk in, so it's advisable to contact them in advance to minimise your waiting time. They offer various portion sizes ranging from $8 to $20 for their Claypot Rice, and we opted for the $15 portion, suitable for 2 pax.

The Claypot Rice is a delightful mix of chunky chicken, lap cheong, salted fish, and greens. Each pot is meticulously cooked over charcoal fire to achieve the best aroma. When served, the claypot is scorching hot, so caution is advised. Quickly pour the dark soy sauce and sesame oil mixture over the rice, mix thoroughly to ensure each grain and ingredient is coated with flavour. The rice is crunchy, carrying hints of dark soy, smokiness, and the fragrance of lap cheong. The chicken is tender, but watch out for bones. The charred bits on the base and sides of the claypot add a sinful touch, though they may not be the healthiest. Overall, the taste is mildly flavoured, and adding more of the dark soy mixture could enhance the experience. However, the rice tends to be dry due to the intense heat from the claypot.

To complement the Claypot Rice, we paired it with the Watercress Pork Rib Soup($2.50). Surprisingly, the soup stands out with its natural watercress flavour. The pork ribs are soft and tender, and the soup provides a refreshing contrast to the hearty claypot rice. Plus, the price is unbeatable.

This porridge had a distinct wok hei, and offered a creamy and mushy texture that retains its flavour even as it gets watery over time. The generous portion of mixed pork meat and organs, including thoroughly cleaned intestines and liver that practically disintegrate in your mouth, adds a flavoursome dimension to the dish. The chewiness of the meat, combined with crispy pork lard on top, elevates the overall experience. Shallots, spring onions, and pepper are added for an extra burst of flavour.
