Begin with the classic Spicy Beef Noodles ($14.90), featuring a satisfying and generously portioned bowl of rich beef soup laden with chunks of succulent beef. Many recommend having this with rice noodles, which are said to be super smooth and silky.

For those who prefer rice, you can explore their variety of fried rice dishes instead. Options include Bacon Fried Rice, Sausage Fried Rice, and Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice, each priced at $10.60. Particularly noteworthy is the Bacon Fried Rice, which stands out for its smoky wok hei flavour and fluffy, flavourful rice featuring crispy bacon and bits of corn and egg.

Count yourself lucky if you manage to get your hands on their signature BBQ Sauce Buns ($4.60), as they tend to sell out quickly. These buns are described as sweet and savoury, boasting a crispy exterior and a soft interior filled with the saucy, sweet pork, vermicelli, and cabbage.

Quench your thirst with their house-made Sour Plum ($3.80), a sour and refreshing drink served with ice that’s moulded into an adorable teddy bear. Other beverages include their Lemonade ($3.80), Peach ($2.80), Black Tea ($2.50) and more.

Be sure to finish your soup and take note of the text at the bottom of the bowl━you might just win a free bowl of noodles, or enjoy your current bowl for free!
