Explore their range of zi char dishes like Lala Bee Hoon Soup (S$7), Beef Fried Rice (S$8/S$12) and Seafood Mee Goreng (S$6/S$10).

Obsessed about Crabs (Seasonal Price)? They’ve got you covered with 6 different flavours for you to choose from like White Pepper, Salted, Cream, Steamed, Chilli and Black Pepper.
