You should also carb up with the likes of their lo mai gai, AKA glutinous rice topped with steamed chicken. The chicken thigh pieces are tender, and the sticky rice is fragrant with chicken fat and pandan leaves. Their house-made porridge is another option to try, served with minced meat, scallions, and a sesame soya sauce.

FYI, they’re only open three days a week, till 12pm, so head down early to eat your fill. They also do takeaways!
