"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

大食家 (Big Eater)

This a place you cannot miss!! This place sells fantastic crabs and zi-cha. My favourite is their crab bee hoon in XO soup! No place sells this taste this good. The soup is really fragrant with the freshness of crab as well as the XO they poured in.

Next is their black pepper crab. Spicy black pepper together with curry leaves and crab’s roe – HEAVENLY. Their chilli crab with mini buns is ok. Not fantastic. If you’re not craving for chilli crabs, you should order something else on the menu like cereal oats crab or butter crabs.

Another of their restaurant must-eat dishes is their black Hokkien Mee. This restaurant uses udon, unlike others using flat mee (like those in lor mee). Fragrant with deep fried pork fats (猪油炸) ensures you leave the place with guilt. Very few places can serve such nice black hokkien mee.

I would also recommend you their “la-la”. Very different taste here. Not the hawker centre taste. They fried it with lots of mini shrimps (虾米). Another one will be their deep fried prawn meat in beancurd skin. Their fried rice is good too. The hor fun is not that great.

1 kg of crab for $38. Usually their crabs are big (more than 1 kg each)
No service charge in this restaurant. This gives you really affordable meals with such good tasting food.
