It comes with a piece of sourdough. The stew may look unassuming but it is quite filling. The chicken thigh was tender and meat can be tore off easily. The potato skin was not peeled but it helps to keep the crunch. It may get abit salty after awhile. Would be good if there is a bowl of rice!

The somen tasted abit like mee kia. As the sauce is scallion oil, the dish was abit oily. The salmon was still tender and the scallops were fresh. Although the dish looks interesting, the taste was just normal. I would recommend to try other dishes.

DALMATION ($8) was a black cold brew topped w cream & crushed oreo...a lil gimmicky. but the WHITE ($5 - 5oz) was not bad.
SCRAMBLED EGGS & IKURA ($18) were yummy though q ex for what it is.
BACON WRAPPED PRAWNS RISOTTO ($25) was q light tasting with a hint of truffle. the bacon wrapped prawns carried.

i think i'm just not a fan of AAA sorbets🥲 i didn't like their fruity and oatside sorbets so i tried this choc pb banana one which sounded SO GOOD but...sticking to nutty party...

- Crust was buttery and flakey crisp like Chinese bakery style.
- Filled with soft and ripened sweet bananas which weren’t too mushy 🍌
- Loved the combination of all the layers with coconut shreds that’s so fragrant giving a slight gritty texture and the roasted almonds on top!!

It said to be the most authentic Eng’s Char Siew Wantan Mee with close family link to the past.

They have moved from their original place to Joo Chiat Road now, and greet welcoming by the staff when I arrive on weekday evening.

Great texture and of course their special chili sauce is still the main attractive taste to enjoy with the noodles. Comes with pieces of wantan, char siew and veggie.

Big prawns were quite good.

The broth itself tastes the same as the ones with the normal prawns. It's not extra briny from the big prawns

The broth is very strong. It's quite intense, but quite salty. It's kind of like if you stewed the normal soup down. In which case it's not as creamy from pork or briny from prawn as I rmbed

Overall a decent bowl, definitely not worth the travel

Had a weekend dinner at Sin Heng Claypot Bak Kut Teh (BKT), located along the bustling streets of Joo Chiat. The restaurant is quite famous and popular among locals in the area. I have dined here several times already, and the food quality and quantity have always been consistently excellent.

Here are my top 3 must-order dishes at Sin Heng Claypot BKT. Firstly and most definitely is the Claypot BKT, their soup is the herbal variation, with a rich and fragrant flavor that is not too overpowering. The soup is refillable, and the pork ribs are always cooked to perfection, offering the right texture and chewiness. The portion size is generous for the price. They also offer variations with pork innards and tail, and a mix dry version.

Next is the Cereal Chicken, the portion is generous, with many chicken pieces fried to an even, crispy coating of cereal. The cereal chicken pairs extremely well with the hot, soupy Claypot BKT.

Last but not least is the Cai Po (Preserved Radish) Egg. This dish features a thick and fluffy omelette paired with crunchy cai po. It serves as a perfect complementary side to the previous two dishes, making for a hearty meal combination.

Beyond the food, the staff at Sin Heng Claypot BKT are friendly and very efficient. From queuing to ordering, getting condiments, serving, and payment, everything was hassle-free. I believe the restaurant has deep heritage and dates way back, with a display booth at the front showcasing their history, which is very interesting, which you can check it out while queueing.

The dining environment is clean with indoor seating, but it is not air-conditioned. It can get quite hot and humid during sunny afternoons, which might not be ideal while eating hot BKT soup. However, on rainy days and chilly nights, this conditions are perfect.

They have a small car parking area right in front of their stall reserved for customers, accommodating about 10 vehicles. The queue during dinner time, especially on weekends, can get pretty long. However, the food wait time is short, and the turnover is usually fast, making it worth the wait.

I highly recommend Sin Heng Claypot BKT to anyone looking for an authentic, hearty BKT experience to enjoy with friends and family.

Renamed Ben's Kitchen, this place puts a twist on Indonesian food - Chinese-Indonesian! This is aka oxtail soup. The tail was generous and oh so fat. I wish the soup was beefier though. Lots of carrot, potato and tomato too.

Renamed Ben's Kitchen, this place puts a twist on Indonesian food - Chinese-Indonesian! It's babi guling that attracted the fiancee, because that's rare in Singapore, but the pork starts from $50, so for an economical alternative order the rice or noodle with babi guling. The noodle used is basically wanton mee, but with more bite. There's no seasoning, just lard and whatever oils from the meats. Includes minced meat.

Renamed Ben's Kitchen, this place puts a twist on Indonesian food - Chinese-Indonesian! It's babi guling that attracted the fiancee, because that's rare in Singapore, but the pork starts from $50, so for an economical alternative order the rice or noodle with babi guling. This has a bunch of things, such as roast pork, BBQ pork, pork satay, keropok, achar and egg. Surprisingly they're consistently good. Ironically the babi guling was sidelined, because they gave only a meagre two pieces. Paired with nasi kuning.
