Mr Lo Cheuk Hang came from Hong Kong in 1979 and helmed the dim sum kitchen of the defunct Golden Crown Restaurant off Margaret Drive. He had been roosting here since 2006, offering his classic chee cheong fun and porridge. His menu is mindboggling; about 30 items and iterations of his signatures – from fish, squid, prawns, cha siu chee cheong fun to century egg, cuttlefish, peanut, chicken porridge. He makes the chee cheong fun fresh upon order and one of our favourites is this Cha Liong, or yu tiao wrapped in fresh chee chong fun (see video). It is 2 starches, 2 textures, 2 flavours and only 2 dollars (currently). His version comes uber smooth and soft; seemingly fragile yet has a soft silky texure. The other stunner is his intestine porridge (he uses multiple rice grains to achieve a texture that’s light, yet firm, not watery and still holds it texture. He puts on some crispy fried intestines and will often freshly deep fry the layered sang cheong (fallopian tubes) and, his toppings are generous. Prices here are ridiculously affordable (bordering on under- priced) which averages $2.50 a portion.

Like many of the exciting new made-upon-order cheong fun stalls in our midst, this one set themselves apart with two elements - the fillings and the firmer softly chewy texture which feels more filling. They have a chai po (preserved radish) version which felt comforting and not so salty. The usual Cha Siu has little stems of coriander added which lends such a refreshing garden aroma and texture. The signature cheong fun with streaked peanut and sweet sauce is a delight. Their generous prawn version sells out very fast.
