    Nothing to write home about the ambience of the restaurant but what draws in a diverse crowd all the time is the delicious food. Options are pretty extensive that might have first timers overwhelmed, however we highly recommend their stir-fried black pepper pork slices, deep-fried crispy fish with soy sauce dressing, fried prawns with yam sticks and spinach soup. The traditional measure is to savour these dishes is with steamed white rice, but if noodle is your thing, Hokkien Mee is a subtle substitute. The best part is you won’t be expecting a spirit-sapping bill in the end.
