We started our meal with a refreshing Buah Long Long drink($3.90), also known as buah kedongdong in Malay. Made from Buah Long Long fruit juice, the beverage is face-scrunchingly sour and complements curry dishes well. Acquired taste, I’d say. Hubby loved it but it was too sour for me. Mention-worthy is its cooling properties which dispels heatiness in the body.

Salted Egg Chicken Wing ($12.90) easily won me over. Fried to a beautiful golden brown and coated with generous amount of salted egg yolk, each bite was captivating.

For a lighter option, the Signature Claypot Fish Head Bee Hoon ($7.90 for single portion, $18.90 for 2-3 pax) would be most suitable. Now, healthy doesn’t mean bland or boring. This delicious broth contains no msg or milk;  its mouth-watering flavor derived from simmering Chef Gan’s unique stock combination for more than 6 hours. Choice of fish is fresh seabass, which went well with the thick, springy bee hoon.
