The chicken feet make a great appetizer with its sweet, spicy and sourish flavours. Love the cold and crunchy texture of the chicken feet. 

Marinated Pork Belly (3 skewers)  RM12

Deep Fried Pork Knuckle RM58
Crispy skin with tender meat, this is one of the best dishes and I would highly recommend this. 

Lemon Steamed Siakap
Perfectly steamed fish in a tangy and spicy broth, best paired with steamy hot white rice.

The homemade apple sauce is truly the winner of this dish. Dip the duck into the sauce brings out its flavour.

Interesting combination of fish fillet with the refreshing green apple. Seriously good!
