🥦Egg White with Crab Meat and Broccoli ($20)
Nice and comforting broccoli dish. Not much else to say except its a great pairing for everything else.

🍤Dual Style Prawn ($26)
Didnt expect myself to like this so much, the prawns are really juicy and theres a crispy fried layer outside. It wasnt soggy at all and the salted egg was super savoury! Didnt try the wasabi side.

🥩Pork Belly with Red Beancurd ($12)
Really crispy and juicy, absolutely perfect.

🍖Wok Master Honey Sambal Spare Ribs ($16)
Sweet and a little crisp, and a very slight spice to it. Reminds me of sweet and sour pork.

🥬Dual Flavour Kai Lan with Chicken Floss ($18)
Was surprised at how much i liked this, it comes with regular cooked kai lan topped with a slightly crispy, kinda seaweed-like fried kai lan and soft chicken floss.

🍥Wok Masters Special Beancurd ($14)
Really loved this! The beancurd is really soft and eggy while the fluffy floss on top gives it just enough sweetness. Chef’s kiss.

🍗Claypot Gong Bao Chicken ($16)
Pretty good gong bao chicken, it comes with many whole garlic cloves inside too, which are soft and well-cooked.

📍A Hot Hideout (@ahothideout)
📌 Sembawang Road
💰 $55.88

I first tried A Hot Hideout at their first outlet in NTU. I was super happy to learn that they had opened an outlet along Sembawang Road, making it so much more accessible. My friend and I visited right at opening time for dinner and it was already super crowded, throughout our meal there were people standing around waiting for seats so if you want to visit, definitely head down earlier.

We got one soup and one dry, with ingredients like scrambled eggs, fried potato, fried lotus root, meat, veggies and more. What makes AHH standout so much is that they deep fry some sides to create the most incredible chips ever. The scrambled eggs are super super soft and fluffy. The mala soup is also insanely good, its milky and not too oily or heavy. Honestly the best mala in sg imo and I would return over and over again.

You absolutely must get the fried potatoes, fried lotus root and scrambled eggs! Each ingredient costs $2.48 per 100g, so def load up on the more worth it ones.

🇭🇰 HK XO Fried Rice
Couldnt taste the XO element much but its very slightly more flavourful than the original SG one. However it doesnt taste that much different.

🇨🇳 Chinese Mala Fried Rice
The mala element wasn’t super strong but I could still taste the occasional mala peppercorn and chilli. Generally preferred this over the SG version as it had more flavour.

🇸🇬 Singapore Fried Rice
A pretty typical fried rice dish, it tastes like those zi char fried rice and not really the dtf style ones. Generally not bad, its pretty oily but has enough flavour.

🥟 Fantastic Siew Mai
📍Fantastic Dim Sum (@fantasticdimsumsg)
📌 ARC380
💰 $10.80

Should have tried these in June because 🌈 but oh well, here's Fantastic Dim Sum's famous rainbow siew mai!

🍗 Chicken
Pretty average siew mai. Tastes like most other siew mai you’d get anywhere ngl.

🐟 Otah
Its a little spicy, I like that its different in taste from regular siew mai. The otah is nicely spiced and quite aromatic.

🥬 Preserved Vegetables
Saltier than the other siew mais, this was quite interesting as the saltiness provided it with a stronger contrast of flavours.

💛 Abalone
Generally tastes like the regular siew mai but with a piece of abalone on it. I’m not the biggest fan of abalone so I was indifferent about this.

🍛 Yellow Curry
Really liked this! The curry is really fragrant and has a coconut milk aroma. Really unique and stands out from all the others.

🍄 Truffle
The truffle taste is quite strong and there are little specks of truffle within the siew mai itself. Not bad!

Overall its a little pricey for a siew mai dish but really unique and I love all the various colours which makes it stand out in terms of presentation. Worth a try, though I think getting it is more for the novelty and the experience.
