The fried fish soup here stands out for it’s soup but not the fish. I don’t mean that the fish is not fresh or has the fishy smell, but the fried fish is not crispy at all. The skin is not thick enough, the fish was just coated lightly with flour and fried for a quite a short time only. The soup is simply delicious, be sure to ask for milk for the soup, it smells nicer too!
Given my friends' recommendations on eating ala carte, I tried on their fried pig trotters which was one of my friend's favourite dish here. The meat was really tender but...somehow, it just didn't click with me. The meat is a little too wet to my liking and the skin was not that crispy. Without the plum sauce, I would have struggled to finish the pork trotters.
A revisit to my favourite rojak stall at toa payoh, the queue for this plate of rojak is a pain to wait for but the aftermath is great on the stomach. I love how much peanuts they give for their rojak, so generous! The prawn paste is not too salty though the rojak is a little too sweet, so I’ll ask for lesser sugar next time round. You tiao and tau pok are all crispy too!
Awesome laksa that suits me best! The gravy is thick, lamek. Taste wise, the chilli paste is rather salty. The gravy by itself is a little salty already so if you're watching out for salt, cut down on the chilli paste. The cockles were quite fresh and chewy. Portion is huge! Worth every cent spent
So I gave this place another try for the food, it seems like nothing can go wrong when you order fried stuff. The fried chicken was decent. Crispy, tender chicken meat, not too oily and not dry. There's really nothing to complain. The potato salad is still as awesome and the fries were crispy. Yummy! Service is still as unattentive as usual, they really need to train the youngsters well....
