- I can’t get this amount of meat at $2 from supermarket. Cheap!
- They always long q but I managed to try their food on eve of CNY. Saw no q, initially thought all sold out, was lucky they still hv bkt, congee etc. Very worth it. The lady boss was very friendly n polite. Sure to support them
- Thanks for recommending this shop. Doing such good deeds by selling at unbelievable low price for the food. I’ll definitely drop by whenever I’m nearby.
- If u want economy food this is the place, please also don’t hiam, must appreciate the gracious of the boss by selling food at affordable price
- This type of business is super challenging. The operator really tires his body to offer this type of value. I truly respect the operator and all assistants.
- Hopefully stall Owner can earn some profit… otherwise work for charity
