Once you've found available seat, you can then place your orders.

Don't worry about the wait time as they usually serve fast soon as you found your seatings.

You will likely dig through the generous amount of vege and mashed mackerel fish on your first dip into the bowl.

Mix it well with the shrimp paste before you start slurping away the springy rice noodles.
