The unanimous favourite dish of the night was one of their signatures - STEAMED SEA BASS IN CHILLI LIME ($29). The fish was fork-tender, and steamed in an appetising broth that had a good balance of sour, spicy & sweet ✨

Beloved for their aromatic plates of carrot cake infused with garlic and wok hei / breath of the wok. The small cut carrot cake cubes are soft and moist without being mushy, and so fragrant.
.
The black version is laced with dark sweet soy sauce, sizzled till some of the small bits turn crispy. Has a bold sweet savoury salty eggy spice flavour.
.
The white version is set into rough squares, sizzled till the sides are slightly crispy. Has a lovely savoury sweet salty eggy spice flavour.

It's from a stall that primarily sells chicken wings, that's all I remember haha. It's too chao tar. Cancer alert. My companions liked it but I think original nia.

Sorry I can't remember the name of this dish. It a prawn and squid dish in an eggy sauce. There are bits of chilli,spring onions and onion inside the sauce. I quite like this dish and I think the sauce goes well with rice. My only gripe are the prawns. They don't seem fresh as the shells are kinda soft and have stuck to their flesh.

Very yummy I recommend this because it's soft inside and crispy outside. They probably used a large amount of oil and strong fire. And that's what one needs to get a well fried egg.

As a regular customer over the last 10+ years, I'm glad to see them not only pull through the pandemic, but groom a 2nd-generation to gradually take the helm.

While more well known for their fried oyster, their skill in getting fluffy eggs with crisp edges around starch, is equally applicable to carrot cake.
.
I always get a yuan yang, with black and white versions. The former has deep sweet savoury eggy flavours, while the latter has bright savoury sweet eggy flavours. I like that the carrot cake is cut into small cubes too.

Wagyu cheeseburger @ $21.40
Comes with curly fries

A lot of areas that we think can be improved on. Firstly, it's served in this plate that fits the burger exactly. If anybody has had a burger before will know how everything falls all over the places so it's rather difficult to eat this with the super confined space of the small plate.

Secondly, they say it's wagyu beef but cuz it's been made into a patty, it's rather difficult to tell if it's really wagyu and to be honest it doesn't feel very much so.

Thirdly, as can be seen in the photo the cheese is overflowing on one side. Not sure if it's done on purpose but I really do wish the cheese has been more evenly spread around the burger because there's some parts that's just nice, some parts that's quite bland and some parts that's just super salty. I love my cheese but this cheese just doesnt taste good somehow.

Seems like the curly fries is the thing with the least complaints that we have here.

Though we must say the pastas that we saw at other tables do look not bad.

And prices are nett.

Chorizo and squid risotto @ $23.50

The risotto is made with brown rice so there's a different texture to it compared to the usual risotto. There's a good amount of fried squid and chorizo in the dish but the taste is really quite just average.

Most items on the menu feel rather overpriced even for cafe food and the quality is not sufficient to justify for it.
