Double Fish Ban Mian

The above double fish soup comes with fish slices and fried fish meat, served with ban mian, some vegetables and topped with ikan bilis and fried shallots.

The sliced fish is quite smooth and soft. The fried fish is quite smooth and soft as well, but its fried batter is soft and lacks crispiness. Both fish options taste alright. The ikan bilis while cripsy, has a hard and firm texture.

The ban mian is rather firm, but surprisingly has a terrible mushy texture. Its soup is overly salty and has strong taste of soya sauce. This dish is a total failure. Thumbs down.

QQ La Mian

The QQ la mian is served with a pathetic amount of minced meat bits, some vegetables and a braised egg. The minced meat is soft and meaty, while the braised egg has salty flavours of soya sauce. The you mian noodles is overcooked and mushy, and it is tossed in a soya sauce seasoning that is overwhelmingly salty. There is simply no QQ (springiness) in the noodles at all. The bowl of soup on the side also tastes of soya sauce. Honestly, this is one of the worst ever. Don’t waste your stomach on this.


There are two options for dumplings, boiled and fried. The boiled dumplings has a firm and chewy skin wrapping a meaty filling containing carrot bits and vegetables. The fried version has a crispy deep fried skin. Be warned, it is not guo tie which is pan-fried with crispy undersides. Just like their noodles, the meat filling has salty flavours of soya sauce as well.

It appears that the only thing that know is to dump soya sauce all over everything they cook. What a failure!
