Back again for the curry fish head! Never get tired of it, and also to try other dishes. Got the salted egg pork ribs and a different veggie dish this time, $60 altogether for 5pax! So glad the pricing has remained somewhat consistent over the past two years 🥹

Front: fish & chick set @ $8.90
Back: full house set @ $10.90

It was not bad, quite average and nothing that shouts out in particular. So the price point feels a bit steep for the quality.

Between the two sets we got, the only difference is the full house has an extra prawn. So a prawn for $2? Quite a big difference in our opinion.

There are five types of curry to choose from: Singapore Hainan, Japanese, Thai yellow curry, Malaysia Spicy Tumeric and Indonesia rendang. We wanted Singapore and Japanese, but they didnt have Japanese anymore. And it was only 12.45pm, or maybe they didn't prepare that at all?

It's a fancy coffee shop, a bit too fancy for our liking. Feels strange that the drinks stall is tucked away in a corner unlike traditional coffee shops. And no caifan stall, which is like a staple in most coffee shops cuz they are meant to be economical right? Also don't understand why need so much lights when it's daytime. A bit waste electricity eh?

Fried rice with Chinese sausage @ $6

Chanced upon this place and it somehow looks inviting so we decided to give it a try and it did not disappoint.

Really good standard for the fried rice.
Better still if you add on the chilli that you can help yourself with on the table. There's also some small veggie inside which gives a different texture to the entire dish.

All in all, a great experience, especially given the price point being very reasonable and affordable!

Secret recipe dry noodles with pork @ $6.50

Chanced upon this place and it somehow looks inviting so we decided to give it a try and it did not disappoint.

The noodles was cooked just nice, not overly done. The pork chop was also tasty and tender not chewy at all. The sauce is the best, giving the whole dish a great umami taste.

It came with that small bit of chilli as shown in the photo but they have the chilli on the table that you can help yourself. The chilli is really great and it does have a bit of spiciness to it (not just salty like some other places).

All in all, a really good experience, especially given the price point is really affordable and reasonable too!

Oyster omelette (S) $5.50
Got $6.50 option

This should be one of the best oyster omlettes I've ever had. The texture is crispy and soft and gooey at the same time. And the oysters are not smelly.

Only hope for chilli to be stronger.

Oyster omelette is made by the uncle.
Wanna try the char kway teow by the auntie next time.

Bottom left: curry fish head @ $28
Top left: sambal petai @ @ $12
Top right: yam ring @ $20
Bottom right: minced meat tofu @ $14

Back here again because of the curry fish head. It's really good and the gravy can be taken on its own without being too heavy or spicy. The other dishes are great too.

Busy on the evening of public holiday, luckily we made reservation for 6pm and it was already quite crowded when we reached. Had to wait abt 30-40mins for the food but worth it!

Oyster omelette @ $7
Also comes in $9, $12 and $14 portions.

It's been a while since we had oyster omelette and this does satisfy the craving even though there are many better ones elsewhere. The eggs are very nicely fried and the amount of oyster is rather generous.

Kway teow @ $7
Also comes in $5, $9, $12 portions.

Quite nice and tasty but somehow one side of the plate tastes stronger and better than the other side so need to mix to balance things out.

Four meat combi @ $30
Fragrant rice @ $1
Veggie @ $5

First time hearing 4 combi, the usual three are roasted duck, charsiew and sio bak, and the fourth is pork ribs.

All are good, the roasted duck is quite fatty so it was extra juicy and tasty. Charsiew was really great and flavourful. Sio bak is okay compared to the rest. The pork ribs is soft and tender and tasted great as well!

2 veggie + 1 meat @ $4.80

We've seen long queues here before and decided to give it a try. It tastes not bad but we've had better before.

Only got two pieces of meat which makes me a little sad.

Pork rib prawn noodles @ $6

Broth is strong and delicious, comes with lots of ingredients too.

Albert street prawn noodles @ #01-10.
This is the cheapest price but there's 2-3 bigger portion pricing to choose from.

Mala white bee hoon (S) @ $9.90++

Very nice and very mala. The first few mouths were quite numbing but subsequently tasted great. But might stick to the normal white beehoon next time cuz this is $2++ more just for a different flavour.
