Its an old school chinese food restaurant. Their menu is familiar for most of old chinese people. Their specialty is Fish soup, you can add tofu as compliment on the soup. Beside fish soup, you also have to order yam ha, eel with fumak, and also babat jari (I don't know the name in english).

I tend to prefer my soups not made from seafood but this one is an exception. But here, the broth is heavenly. I can even eat the whole thing myself... More

The place was peaked on the dinner time. It's located on Hayam Wuruk street which one of the most popular street in the... More
