Wouldn't have known about this place if not for Burpple 1 for 1. Rice was lightly fragant and not too overpowering, appreciated the sides of ikan bilis, peanuts, achar, and especially the umami onsen egg. Signature Chicken Cutlet was juicy, crunchy, and the batter was on point - very addictive!! Fish was good too. Biggest complaint was the sambal which was okay but I didn't feel like it paired with Nasi lemak. Try it for yourself.

One of the better malatang in sg but to me it's the best just cos of the nostalgia factor of riding me theough my NTU days. Both locations might be off the way but I assure you, the experience of having deepfried potatoes and lotus roots and luncheon meats plus scrambled egg in malatang is life changing.

I know my pic only shows the condensed milk bun and milk tea which is always good and comforting but oh my god we also ordered the king prawns xo sauce noodle dish and oh boy MY EYES OPENED WIDE I SWEAR like the noodles themselves were so aromatic but when you add the xo sauce served separately it's elevated to a whole other level like just try it, just try it

Had both the Dry and Soul BKT and both really impressed - BKT herbal soup was delightful and comforting, with a right balance of flavours. The dry sauce was intensely savoury with robust sweetness and a tinge of spiciness.

Lurou Fan ($5) and Pork Cutlet Bento ($7.50). Homely and tasted good, I'll return whenever I'm craving simple Taiwanese fare. Tried their Fried Mushrooms too but didn't like them.

Crispy Bun with Condensed Milk
Braised Pork Cartilage in Fish Soup with Mixian

Both dishes were so homely and delicious, would come back once in a while due to the slightly high price.

Used the Burpple 1 for 1 set. Staff recommended the UOB 1 for 1 deal too as that one included drinks in the 1 for 1 too, but we sadly didn't have the card. Soup wise, we loved the Fish Soup with Milk, and didn't really like the Tom yum and tomato. The signature Fish Maw Fish Soup was also lacklustre. Free flow sauce bar was amazing the service was also friendly and attentive.

Ebiko Prawn Fried Rice ($13.90): Can't go wrong with fried rice, and this absolutely slaps. Each bite also has pops of ebiko to bring the enjoyment factor up.
Prawn Thick Vermicelli ($13.90, not pictured): Was good but pales in comparison to the prawn noodles from Le Shrimp Ramen.
Hot Plate Tofu ($15.90) and Sambal Kang Kong ($14.30): Delivers on what it's supposed to. Good but doesn't stand out.
Mango Sago ($5.90) and Lemongrass Jelly ($3.90): Dessert closed off the meal nicely, would recommend the Lemongrass Jelly more.

Honestly did not expect this shopping mall prawn mee to be good, but this was GOOD. The soup was so flavourful and thick, and had a tinge of sweetness which I liked (but some might not!). The pork ribs was oh so tender but the prawns were soo hard to get out of their shell. One thing was that they only offered chilli padi but I preferred the chilli powder served in other outlets. Will come back to try their dry and the new paofan version.

Interesting to have LaLa as the star of a noodle soup - ordered the Drunken Lala Beehoon and Clear Lala Tanghoon (both $7.90) and the whole bowl was literally just Lala +Soup + Noodles + some strands of vegetables. The Lalas were fresh and I only felt a smattering of grits. Drunken soup was so much better than the clear soup, but take care that the chilli is very spicy. Will be back to try their other LaLa dishes.
