Price: $9.90 (got for $6++ as part of student meal)

Rice was slightly soggy and I felt that too much water was involved in the cooking.
Regardless, i let the sous vide egg break into the rice to provide a wet and creamy texture for the rice.
Beef portion was moderate and provided a decent taste when combined with the mentaiko sauce.
As part of the student meal, this was pretty worth it given the increasing food prices in SG.

Beef soup was really expensive, consisting of scant beef slices and cheap cabbage leaves. The taste of the soup was passable although it came off as overpriced.
The "Lamian" was a travesty, costing an extra 2 dollars despite tasting more like vermicelli. I felt really ripped off as the noodles were really lumpy and hard to chew.
Very disappointed in this franchise. I'll never eat here again.

Chicken rice served with tofu, braised eggs, and soup.
Was really filling and flavourful as expected of a chicken rice bowl.
Nothing out of the ordinary.

Meal consisted of chicken katsu, rice, salmon, and a fried tofu.
Queue was long despite buying at 2pm, but it was still worth the wait.
Teriyaki sauce complimented the pearl rice, salmon, and katsu perfectly, resulting in a very satisfying meal which justified the queue.

Never tried murtabak before but I guess this would not be the best one.
The egg and chicken filling between the prata slices were just so-so, and it tasted exactly like egg prata. Prata layers were doughy and nothing spectacular.

I dont think it was worth $8, although it was rather filling.

Crunchy rosti with a side of tomatoes and cream sauce served on a plate.
Rosti tends to be very difficult to cook as a balance between being overcooked and well done is a fine line. With this rosti, I felt that it was the latter, making it a very enjoyable meal.

Really crispy Banh Mi which was worth the $9.90. Complemented with the beef, and chilli sauce this is the best Banh Mi which I have eaten.

One of my go-to foods when I feel famished when in NUS.
The butter chicken is ridiculously filling for its appearance. When added to naan, I find myself struggling to finish.

Grade: A

Cost ~$5.
The Japanese cuisine at the NUS FASS canteen is probably among the best.
Really enjoyed the chicken cutlet rice, which provided bang for buck. The miso soup went down well to complement the juicy cutlet.
Unfortunately, the queues are always long at the store, and waiting time can span up to an hour.

Grade: A

Delicious dry vinegar beef noodles for $5.50.
Goes well with chilli oil, and the carrot and cucumber shavings prevent the dish from tasting overly-dry.
The beef portions are large and create value in the dish, and complement the noodles perfectly.
Despite being a condiment usually only used in moderation, the vinegar does not end up being excessive, and provides a savoury spin to the noodles.
At a budget, this is my go-to meal from WHYQ.

Grade: A

Rather costly mala which tasted relatively mild when I tried Zhong La.
Price wasnt that good either, costing $40 for 4 pax despite not being that filling.

Grade B-

Really affordable Tom Yum Ban Mian from the noodle stall in PGP.
Costing $4.50, the portion is very generous, and I had more than my fill.

Grade: B+
