Pung Pung kitchen at Holland Avenue

Met up with friends to have dinner at this cze cha place founded by Chef Pung Lu Tin, a well-known celebrity chef. We decided to go with some of their signature dishes. The coffee shop was crowded on a Sunday for dinner but not all of them ordering from Pung Pung Kitchen but from Kin Hoi, a stall serving Cockles Thai Style, Top Shell Salad, Mussels Thai Style, Thai Honey Grilled Pork, etc.

The Signature Charcoal Tofu ($10.00) came first. It is steamed tofu with charcoal powder added to give it the black color and topped with a handful of pork floss and chopped spring onion. It was quite a small piece and just enough to share amongst the 4 of us. 

The Marmite Pork Chop ($10.00) came next. It tasted just fine with no surprises. 

Fish Belly with Tofu Soup ($6.00) was quite a big portion of its price. We even wondered whether did they made a mistake. It was a hearty choice for a rainy evening. 

Slice Fish Sambal Hor Fun ($10.00). We were quite impressed with this dish. My friend even suggested that it would tasted nice when taking it away. This is a unique dish that tasted like Chilli Crab Horfun that I tried once. 

Sambal Sweet Potato Leaf ($10.00) tasted just fine. It costs as much as a meat dish which just did not seem to be justifiable. 

Fried Meat with Fermented Bean ($10.00) came when we have almost forgotten about it. It was surprisingly good, much better than the other that I had recently. 

The Signature Opeh Leaf Bee Hoon ($10.00) came last. We waited for about 30 minutes and no sight of it, they must have missed it out. We reminded one of the service staff and waited for another 10 minutes before it was served. We were told that the opeh leaf was run out and it is going to serve without it. My dining companion took a mouthful and said, "This is not better than the one by the White Restaurant. "

The total bill was $64.00. We were left feeling satisfied and will likely come back again.
