Curry Rice

Encik Tan serves halal versions of hainanese curry rice, replacing fried pork chop with chicken cutlet. It comes with chicken cutlet, fried egg and vegetables served with rice and curry sauce.

The chicken cutlet has a crispy breaded crust with moist meat and has nice seasoning flavours. Its skin is crispy and flavourful. The fried egg has soft yolk and crispy whites, and the decently flavoured vegetables is crunchy. The curry sauce is slightly spicy with a light tint of sweet. Quite likeable.

Signature Noodles

The signature noodles comes with a choice of noodles and mee pok is chosen. It comes with fishball, teochew fishball, braised mushrooms, fried wanton, fried scallop, half a boiled egg, large fried ikan bilis and minced chicken meat.

The fishball is soft and smooth, and has nice fish flavours. Likewise for the teochew fishball, it is soft and smooth with bits of chopped chilli and spring onions in its fish paste. The braised mushroom is rather flavourful, and is firm and springy. The fried wanton has a crispy skin and slightly chewy filling. The fried scallop has a mildly crispy breaded crust wrapping a piece of soft scallop. The fried ikan bilis is the large and flat type, and is very crispy. The minced chicken meat is soft and flavourful. As for the mee pok itself, it is a bit soft but still fairly springy, and it is quite decently flavoured. Comes with a bowl of soup on the side. Not bad.

Chicken Wanton Mee

The wanton mee is halal with the regular char siew replaced with chicken meat char siew. The set comes with both soup wanton and fried wanton.

The soup wanton has a soft skin wrapping a rather bland tasting meat filling. The fried wanton has crispy skin and it is a bit chewy at where the filling is. The chicken char siew is meaty and has savoury flavours with a slight note of sweet. The alkaline tasting tossed noodles is springy with decent seasoning flavours, and the soup tastes decent.

This serving of chicken wanton mee is rather average. Their signature noodles is probably a better choice.
