Here are some signature dishes that we ordered:

Mee-Suah Kueh ($2) which is vermicelli packed into blocks, with some other bits of ingredients and fried till crispy. Quite an interesting dish as vermicelli are often soup based.

Other non-signature dishes that we ordered:

Char Siew Sou (Baked BBQ Pork Pastry) at $2.40. Light and flaky crust, sweet and fragrant BBQ pork, how did it not make it to their signature section?

Char Siew Bao (BBQ Pork Bun) at $2.0. Same char siew fillings, but the bun was a little thick for its proportion.

Liu Sha Bao (Custard Bun with Egg Yolk ) at $3.60. Not the most “potent” fillings, but still very satisfying! What do I mean by “potent” – the custard filling should be rich in flavour that excites the palate almost immediately, as though one is going to have a sore throat. Still don’t understand what I mean? Try out the one at Mouth Restaurant.
