Been here a few times but had a superb meal here last month (February 2015) that inspired this review. The food could not be faulted - humbly delicious & warmly considered. No gratuitously exotic but otherwise boring ingredients or pretentiously 'adventurous' dishes on the menu, but plenty of nonetheless interesting dishes that made choosing quite difficult. For entrees we had Duck Tortellini, Fusili with zucchini flowers & cherry tomatoes, Chicken Liver pate and Gnocchi Saltimboca. We shared entree's around the table - each one excellent. The gnocchi was fresh & pillowy soft that melted in your mouth. Usually I hate gnocchi - stodgey starchy glue to me. Not this one - this was really fecking good. The tortellini was fresh and superb. Mains were also superb. Two of us had the fillet of beef, cooked perfectly rare with a jus atop spinach and mash. Sounds ordinary - it bloody wasn't. Service was excellent & staff were warm and accommodating - even whipped up a spaghetti for the little. Italian Sommelier Ricardo really knew his Italian wine, I recommend the Nebbiolo he selected & imported it himself. Aside from the food & the service, one of the best things about the night was the fact that we could hear ourselves talk - even on a Saturday night. Pretty rare these days. This is a good, solid place for a reliably good night out with friends. Not up its own a***, just fantastic food, warm unpretentious service and a really pleasant atmosphere. A comment on John Dory's review below - I agree that this isn't an 'artistic' or 'adventurous' sort of place that you are going to boast to your fashionable gastro friends about - and it isn't trying to be. It's just bloody good food at a reasonable price. This is the kind of place for when you just want to go out and get a decent feed at a decent price and have a pleasant conversation with the missus. I for one will definitely be back.

People who don't understand or know what you are eating will just make empty comments..Teochew Singapore Heritage food.......
 This is as authentic and proper as it gets.. the quality of the noodles. the quality of the dried fish(tipou) they use.
 the way they handle their pork. which is the main reason why it takes so long to make one bowl. they never overcook their liver and pork, jusdt watch as they cook...thin pieces of deep fried pork lard, yum!!!! and yes they use a good amount of vinegar! Thats how its supposed to be!!!!! I balances the oiliness of the pork..Nothing comes close to this, not anywhere else in Singapore or Malaysia
 Truly deserves a a Teochew Michelin star.....

BTW the Kway Teow soup is divine too!!!!

Went over last weekend to have western Food and noticed the queue was short.
So decided to give a try and jump into the queue.
The queuing was tough....as u queue nearer to the stall, the warmer it get.
Four persons was queuing infront but takes more then 30mins.
My family had started drinking and eating the western food but i was still queuing.... As first time eating and ordering, it was really disappointing.
Firstly the lady who took my order keep repeating my order 2 to 3 times and asking whether $8 per bowl. The bowl I had was vinegar overdoused.
I do not like the taste of the base gravy, not good at all. I felt if i paid $10 for a bowl. i rather go for Ah Nam abalone noodle.
A cheaper alternative, at Pek Kio or Rochor blk, can get better BakChor noodle and with more pig liver. Not sutiable for kids, Kopi shop is in dirty condition and smokers are not far away. (Comparing to many hawker Centre i visited)

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
