Wah damn good. But maybe it's just freshly fried.

It's a signature but it's underwhelming. The dryness of the noodles was difficult for the supposed star sauce to shine. Also, it only tasted spicy, and if that's the sauce, then sorry no.

Very wet and good amount of crabmeat. Plus it has the ee-fu flavour I love.

Among the many high end restaurants and bars located around the area, lies this inconspicuous zi char restaurant that was really pretty decent, while being relatively affordable!

Their Fish Meat Soup ($20 for medium) is one worth commenting on. The soup itself is light, not multidimensional but still decent. What's good is their fish chunks which were huge and fresh! Many pieces were given as well. Love how meaty and flaky the pieces were!

Their Yang Zhou Fried Rice ($15 for medium) came generous and I loved how fluffy the rice was. This has loads of wok hei and charred bits which flavoured the rice well.

The Claypot Bringal with Minced Pork ($18 for medium) was also another dish we liked. Loved how the dish had so much umami flavours and that the bringal was really soft! Best paired with rice.

Prawn Paste Chicken ($15 for medium) was unexpectedly good. Honestly, the colour of the fry was pale and we didn't expect it to be delicious. However, the outer crust was so crispy, and so full of umami flavours! The chicken was well marinated, as the seasoning penetrated the chicken well. Darn addictive!

The Poached Chinese Spinach ($21) is a good vegetable option, as it not only came with salted egg and century egg, it came with flowy poached eggs too 😍 Flavourful but not too salty, this is a good break from all the rich meat dishes.

I wouldn't say that the dishes were particularly mind-blowing, but they were definitely comforting. A zi char restaurant I will come back again for!

Crispy, savory, addictive!
Deep-fried prawn paste chicken from Lai Huat is a must try item!
Succulent chicken pieces coated in a flavorful prawn paste, fried to a golden crisp.
Umami flavor explosion in every bite!
Highly recommended.

From the mixed rice & drink stall, enjoyed the quick lunch.
Chosen braised pork belly, egg tofu and deep fried chicken wing.
Not bad indeed.

It makes sense they're out of business. They styled themselves as Taiwanese zichar but the dishes were inferior to Singaporean zichar. The dishes were also small for the prices.
