We've covered this place before but this time we will talk at length about the dishes here and why it's always been our perennial favourite. First off, if not for anything else you could just come here and snack on their delectable Saito (wolf-herring) Fish Cakes.

This restaurant’s signature dish however is the “Claypot Yam Paikuat Noodles” or Claypot Yam Noodles with Pork Ribs (yes, it’s a mouthful). We’ve been coming here off and on since we discovered it a few years ago for this signature dish.

So in the end we ordered a medium sized Claypot Yam Noodles (portions for two persons) plus two slices of their marvellous Saito Fish Cakes while Brendan tried the Mun (simmer or braised) Yee Mee with a round of Leong Sui (herbal tea) for everyone.
|as always, its herbal tea|
|this chili paste is da bomb!|

The damage? With drinks it all came up to a reasonable RM35, well within realms of ‘the everyday food for the everyday person’. This restaurant is high on our list of default eateries so give this place a try, if only to sample their signature dish because we're sure you won't regret it.
