Kedai Kopi Seng Thor
Super crispy oh chien with charred smokey taste. Their oh Chien is tad oily but the taste is great. Do expect a bit of wait approximately 20-30mins though to get your oh Chien as it takes time to deep fry the starch in the oh Chien mixture from sticky to crispy.

Air Itam Sister Curry Mee
Sister curry Mee is now run by their younger generation. The broth flavor was not intense and it was quite spicy from their chili paste. They added cuttlefish in their curry for a umami richness in the broth.
