"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

The prices were so reasonable and the quality of food was beyond my expectations. The hor fun left a good impression as it encompassed  the “wok hei” which is not commonly found in Singapore. I also enjoyed the Portuguese egg tart very much. The pastry was light and flaky and the egg custard was just nice – not too hard, not too sweet. The 红油抄手 was good too. I liked it that the vinegar was fragrant and the combination of it with chilli oil was of good proportion. The 流沙包 had a good skin texture and the salted egg custard filling was generous. What I did not like was the cheong fun only. It was plainly garnished with soy sauce and sesame seeds accompanied with the sweet sauce. I was expecting the usual char siew / prawn cheong fun.

The restaurant also serves la mian, cooked dishes and desserts. Definitely going back for more!

Expect long queues but waiting time is usually quite fast. They do not allow seating until majority of the people have arrived.

Prices exclude 7% GST. No service charges.
