This BCM as good!! The dry meekia version had an oomph to it, and it was a better than average medley of noodles and sauce. Defo sth I'll keep coming back to!

I had the dry version, my dad had the soup. Both were great - slurp worthy and cheap to boot. Wasn't really a :0000 meal but it checks all the boxes! Preferred the dry over the soup but to each their own.

The moment you reach the store, can immediately smell the whiff of charcoal. didn't know food could smell like charcoal (unless you're...eating charcoal...but you do you) but this hokkien mee did. Wow. One of the better hokkien mees I've tasted in awhile. Dk why most hokkien mees I tried all so limp. but this one definitely stood up.

maybe only the Sambal chilli could be more punchy, but that's my personal opinion lah, you might like it. also, $6 for this small portion make my stomach and wallet cry.

Some char on the noodles which added abit of wok hey, and I liked the wetness of the dish. Sambal was also shiok and lent a bit of heat to the dish. Only complaint is that the taste was quite light.

Always visit this place whenever I have frog legs cravings. My standard order is always the Gong Bao frog legs, porridge, and the string beans. never fails to satisfy. their Yang Zhou fried rice is also preddy darn good.

Dishes I didn't like: special homemade chilli frogs (sauce is just chilli crab sauce), BBQ chilli frog (more petai beans and onions than the measly amount of squid)

Tomato soup with ebiiko prawn paste noodle (top)
Hot and sour soup with with sliced beef and Sichuan pickles noodle (bottom)

Tomato broth was light and sweet. not as umami as other I've tried but oretty decent. ebiiko prawn balls were the bomb, bouncy and flavourful. Hot and sour soup was good too. Overall a good meal especially with burpple 1 for 1.

Noodle didn't come like in the pic (everything was alr mixed together) but nonetheless I enjoyed this. Tangy with a slight kick, and the veges adding a nice crunch, overall this meal was pretty homely and enjoyable.

Had friends raving about this place and decided to specially drop by. No regrets at all. Soup was piping hot in the claypot and prawns were so fresh. Pork ribs were meaty and nicely accompanied the broth. Tobiiko prawn balls were slightly too soft though, won't recc it. Take note that if you say yes to chilli, they'll add the chili directly into your noodle. Dk if they can separate the chilli.

Ugly cabbage was fantastic; wok hey was accentuated by the fish sauce zhup. Prawns in chilli crab sauce was decent - prawns were plump but not very fresh. Expected more out of the Ter Kah Beehoon flavour-wise, but it was chock full of ter Kah. Ended the meal with the popiah garden which was had interesting local flavours, but I didn't feel like they hit the mark. Might come back to try the other dishes! The free parking between 6-10pm certainly helps as well.

Don't miss their Heng Hua Beehoon, really executed well and the chilli just brings it up a notch. The cold pigs trotters was also above average, and do try their Spinach with Golden Mushrooms and Superior Stock as well.
