CLAMS

HAINANESE CHICKEN RICE RISOTTO

"This dish is so on point. It tastes like chicken rice, but is extra hearty and comforting in risotto form, accompanied with a nice soya sauce-like broth. It's perfect with crispy chicken skin and fried shallots. Great chilli too."

EDIBLE HELIUM BALLOON

"This is definitely something to order if you're with company, since you end up sounding like a high-pitched Minion. After the fun, eat it dipped in the yogurt ice cream - it reminds me of an awesome Pocky stick."

BEEF BRISKET NOODLE

"Did not expect a halal-certified late-night dim sum eatery to offer noodles as authentic as the ones in Hong Kong. Tender beef brisket with springy noodles that have a slight alkaline taste, like what I usually get at noodle stalls in Hong Kong."

MATCHA LAVA COOKIE
