Salted Fish Fried Rice. Overall this dish was quite a disappointment. The quality of the rice used was very poor, I could tell this by how horribly broken it was. Moreover, the rice was overcooked. To make matters worse, the fried rice didn't have any aroma at all, so the taste was really quite bland - I didn't detect any salted fish taste. Not a dish that I would order again.
Price: $4.00. 4/10
Fried Dong Fen. This is quite an uncommon dish, that is seldom found available in vegetarian hawkers/restaurants, so I was definitely curious to try. Unfortunately, this was another dish that ranked as a monumental disappointment. It was a dish with literally no flavour at all, almost tantamount to eating plain white rice. I was happy that they offered lime on the side, but even when drenched in lime juice, the dish still had almost no flavour at all. One of the most forgettable dish I have eaten since running this site.
Price: $5.00. 3/10
Mamee Chicken. This dish did bring me out of the depression that the previous two dishes caused, somewhat. The portion size was healthy and the mock meat was chewy and succulent. The mock was nicely coated with the predominately sweet sauce, and even though the price was a little steep, the portion size made up for it.
Price: $8.00. 6/10
Conclusion - Nothing much to add about this eatery. Overall it was a disappointing experience, and not a place that I would consider returning to again. Their menu is quite vast, so perhaps there are some hidden gems there, but the dishes I ordered definitely didn't impress me. The only positive is that the staff are open and friendly.
