Dry ytf @ $11.20
(14 pcs of ingredients, each at $0.80, no carbs)

Been here once and kept thinking of coming back. Got the dry version this time and love the sauce. Ingredients are nice also, and the fried items are well fried.

Walked past once during lunch time and the queue was all the way to the next building, been here a couple of times in the evening and got much lesser crowd.

Curry fish head (L) @ $28

Super delicious. The fish was soft and tender and comes off the bones easily so we managed to devour the entire fish head quite cleanly. Comes with lots of vegetables like green beans, ladyfingers and brinjal, all hidden underneath the mountain of fried taukee.

Which we think is the best part of the dish. It has its own slightly salty taste which balances out the rest of the dish and the crispy texture also adds a different dimension to everything else. It makes us feel like we're having two separate dishes. Much better than the usual curry fish head that comes with taupok.

The curry is also very flavourful and slightly on the milkier side. We could finish everything on its own.

Can't wait to go back and try other dishes.

Spicy dumplings 红油抄手 @ $4.50
Comes in 10pcs.

Not very spicy.
The skin a bit tough.
Can have more fillings.

Dan dan noodles @ $4.50

The noodles are a bit overcooked.
Soup tastes a bit different from usual, might be from the additional roasted peanuts, which is not bad.
Everything else is quite normal.

5 dishes @ $12

Love the heap of sausage (and it's half portion!) but it covered up everything else. There's also taukwa + two types of prawn fritters + ngoh hiong.

I think our favourite is the sausage and the flatter version of prawn fitter which comes with smaller shrimps (there's a fatter version of prawn fritter that comes with one normal size prawn).

But honestly, everything on this plate is great.

The sauce is good also, a bit of peanut makes it have a tinge of satay sauce taste but it's also mildly spicy and sour (i think? Could be vinegar?) and the blend of all the flavours come together very nicely.

And also eyeing at the oyster omelette stall next to it so guess we'll be back!

Nasi lemak rice + chicken wing + kangkong + tomato with egg @ $4.50

Housed within the Gao Feng Noodle House coffee shop just round the corner between South Bridge Road and Upper Circular Rd, this nasi lemak/econ beehoon/mixed veg stall seems to a new addition.

Lots of ingredients to choose from and they all look delicious. Went with the basic chicken wing + veggie + egg dishes and it was great.

Love it when simple things are done right and affordable.

Hong kong style fried rice with pork cutlet @ $7.50
(But the auntie gave me $2.20 change for a $10 note 😔😔)

Very nice fried rice, can taste the wok hey from the first mouth, but can be a bit one dimensional after a while. Which is where the chilli comes in, it's a bit salty a bit sweet, so tastes really great. And it's crispy so adds texture, think it's fried with ikan billis and maybe salted fish?

The pork cutlet is alright, meat is slightly tough. Think will try another style with chicken cutlet next time.

Simple menu but good variety with the different combinations of styles and ingredients.

Charsiew rice @ $3.50

Happy that they gave generous amount of meat. Meat is good but sauce is a bit too heavy in the taste. Otherwise quite a good plate for the price. Chilli is great too.

Mushroom chicken rice @ $6.90

Surprisingly of all the dishes we had there, this was the most memorable. It's really tasty and all the ingredients come very well together. Both the mushrooms and chicken were braised thoroughly and really soaked in the taste and the chicken was soft and tender and juicy and so easy to bite off.

The rice was also soaked in generous amount of the sauce which is super delicious but not too much such that it becomes wet.

Might come back just for this.

We also had a bunch of sides but all are quite normal and nothing worth mentioning. Would advise to just stick to the mains.

Superior beef noodles @ $10.90
Small, dry, kway tiao

Value for money as it comes with generous amount of ingredients including sliced beef, tendon, tripe and shank. As this is the dry version, the beef meatball was in the soup.

The gravy is thick and tasted okay but the choice of noodles is between kway tiao and thick beehoon which I thought was quite strange. Maybe cuz I was thinking more of the Taiwan kind of braised beef noodles which uses yellow noodles or ramen kind of noodles.

We also had a bunch of sides but all are quite normal and nothing worth mentioning. Would advise to just stick to the mains.

Overall quite an average meal but the soup version might be a good option for rainy day comfort food.
