As a rice monster, I have eaten sufficient rice dishes. This is the best. The rice is so flavourful and complex. Some may prefer to add water to the stone pot but I like it without. I didn’t order the abalone porridge cos I think...More

The abalone is quite tender but if you order the hot plate you’d have to eat it quick. It continues to cook on the hot plate so the longer you leave it in, the tougher it can get. Definitely a have to visit!

This is a must eat restaurant. Last year we ordered all flavours for 2 adult and 1 baby to share. But this year, we focus on the food we like more. Picture speaks a thousand word.

The place is quite popular among tourists and locals alike for abalone, I must say it was worth the 30 minutes that I had to do to get the table. Loved it!

If you like abalones, then this is a good place to try. The sizzling abalone rice stone pot is really nice. I think it comes with grilled fish and other accompaniments. The grilled abalones are very good. Not tough at all. You have to queue...More
