Karl's first to be out of the gates :-)
Thanks for the link! I went the other day and agree that the mohinga could have been more flavourful. They were also out of tea leaf salad when I went too. Will have to return to try other dishes.
Also, I LOVED the balachaung sauce. It kind of reminded me of a sweeter XO sauce. I didn't get much shrimp flavour (though it makes sense if they used dried fish instead). I didn't realize they were selling tubs of it. Wish I'd picked some up.
The balachaung isn't so much a sauce as it is a very coarse and morselful paste, perhaps like a "chutney" but much drier. I could have easily eaten bowls upon bowls of rice with just that on top, had I not had to gingerly share our small allotment with my fellow diners ;-)
I really liked their varying sizes for the noodle soups (IIRC $3.5 S/$5.5 M/$7.5 L) so one can easily order a "sampler pack" of the small or even medium-size bowls rather than committing to just one large bowl. Actually the small square bowl was quite generous, Karl's pics don't show how deep they are.
