I apologise in advance for the quality of the photos... it was late, I had just been pacing the baggage carousels at the airport waiting for chapflap and I didn't have my proper camera with me...
We've been to this restaurant time and time again, most often after a marathon karaoke session. It's open until 2am and features a cheap-as-chips late night supper menu. For example, our bill came to only $19.60 (with a 20c per person tea charge). Can't complain about that. I think there is a minimum charge though per person - around $6-7?
Wonton noodles - $3.80. Chapflap's hand provides a useful comparison for the size of the bowl! By the way, what is it with Chinese restaurants and pink tablecloths?!
Roast duck rice noodles - also $3.80. The rice noodles are not the usual ones found in for example char kiew teow but a rounder, shorter one.
"Little boat" congee, a rice porridge with peanuts, squid, tripe and other bits and pieces. I know it doesn't sound too appetising but it's perfect comfort food - $8.80.
Deep fried dough sticks to accompany the congee (or as my friend calls them, oil fried ghosts - in reference to a literal translation of their colloquial name) - $2.80.
The menu also features a deep fried bun served with condensed milk - something my friend of the oil fried ghosts always insists on getting. It's a real heart-stopper! I'm not sure what the actual dinner menu is like (we always have the late night supper dishes) but I saw lots of people ordering the salt and pepper prawns.
