Brought to you by the team that started The Ramen Stall (literally opposite of them), this new venture brings you Cantonese staples with a local twist. Think vermicelli roll with rendang (Cantonese and Javanese? Say what?) However, we must say that the team was looking for classic dim sum dishes so here's what we got.

Served with fried chilli paste as a condiment, the Beef Brisket Noodle Soup ($12.90) really packed a punch with the rich and savoury soup. The beef was stewed until tender you can simply pick pieces of it gently with chopsticks!

The less adventurous would want to give the Dry Shredded Chicken Noodle ($6.90) a try. Served with the same soup used in the Beef Brisket Noodle Soup and fried chilli paste. Although nothing fancy, we cannot complain because it was still as good.

Not sure why we somehow ordered noodles and nothing with rice 😅 To make up for it, we order a whopping number of 6 side dishes consists of all things dim sum! Okay, we're exaggerating.

The Deep Fried Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk ($7.90) really won everyone over. Even after sitting out on the table for an hour or so (everyone was trying to get a whole of themselves to not eat everything in one go) the fish skin still remained crispy. The salted egg yolk sauce had the right amount of sweetness and saltiness. The fish skin was well-seasoned that it didn't taste too salty even when paired with the sauce. This is definitely a must-have!

Not sure if the restaurant got confused with our order or we got the wrong idea of it... but the Pan Fried Chive Dumplings ($3.90) look more deep fried than pan fried. This was everyone's least favourite, but at least the filling was well-seasoned.

The Vermicelli Roll with Shrimp and Spring Onion ($7.90) was another favourite. They were generous with the shrimps and that's exactly how we roll! The roll was pre-cut and every portion had its own shrimp. The sauce had the perfect level of saltiness.

We're not too sure what was special about the Chicken Feet with Special Sauce ($4.90) but the chicken feet had a more Melayu taste to it than the usual salty Cantonese taste we had expected. Not too sure what to feel about this...

This is the kind of dish that you will either love or hate. The Crispy Chicken in Coffee Sauce ($8.90) was one of a kind and had won us over with the taste of the unique coffee sauce. The chicken was crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.

We promise that this will be the last side dish we ordered:

All hail the Molten Salted Egg Custard Bun ($4.90). Although we have tasted much nicer Liu Sha Baos, this one had a unique distinctive taste to it. It tasted like they might have added a tiny bit of coconut into the filling. Still good!

Because the restaurant is rather small, reservations are recommended. They take reservations at least 1 day in advance to your visit. We had to wait 20 minutes for our seats.
