Fried bitter gourd with eggs (and salted egg yolk too).

We were so thrilled when we saw this dish. All of us love bitter gourd so we were very keen to try it out.
*
Bitter gourd, when cooked well, tastes heavenly and this was definitely one of the best I've had. It wasn't too bitter and the salty egg yolk gave it a nice contrast. A must-order!

Hae bee hiam (spicy dried shrimp sambal).

We were served a large dish of hae bee hiam which was just the right condiment to complement the fish. Super tasty too!

Rabbitfish.

It was my first time eating rabbitfish. It was surprisingly good. Surprising because it didn't look at all appetising.

Steamed with kiam chye (preserved green mustard) and topped with the oh-so-sinful deep fried pork lard.

Wild soon hock.

In Ipoh where I grew up, we called it lam kor yue. A wild one is typically larger and the texture smooth and bouncy. Not like the farmed ones where the meat is sometimes flaky.
*
Such a simple yet tasty dish - steamed with soy sauce.

Yam Can Cook

Yam ring is a delightful dish at most tze char stalls and Chinese restaurants. Older folk love it, younger ones should try it!

Shovel nose shark.

Initially thought to be a shark but later confirmed as a ray and more closely related to a skate. It is cartilaginous and full of collagen.
*
It was my first time having it prepared with taucheo (fermented bean paste), garlic and chilli. Super delicious 😍. Even more so when you eat it with the generous helping of deep fried pork lard!
*
Thank you @vinopothamus and @ahpuicat for inviting us for lunch. Loved the food here. Fresh, tasty and cheap 😋. It was definitely worth the trip all the way to Jurong!

Shovel nose shark head, oh my, I am in collagen heaven!

Steamed, topped with a piquant tau cheo sauce which was savoury and not overpowering and accompanied by deep fried crunchy bits of lard, this was just so good. Let's just say I probably ate the lion's share of it.

Growing up in Ipoh, we were spoilt when it comes to Soon Hock or what the locals there call Lam Kong Yue.

Due to its popularity, a lot of restaurants these days serve the farmed versions of this prized fish. Well, today we are lucky enough to have the wild caught Soon Hock. Steamed to perfection the flesh is sweet and has a certain bite to it, unlike the farmed ones which flakes more easily. So yummy! Iggy and Janice, thanks for ordering this. Thorougly enjoyed it.

Bittergourd with eggs!

It may sound like a simple homecooked dish but it's really one that is hard to execute well. Here, they aced it! I don't know what the secret is but it's good enough to convert the non bittergourd lover amongst us to one now, well only at Zai Shun. I personally loved how they added in some salted eggs along with the eggs. So good that I shamelessly took the last helpings of this dish.

Rabbit fish, rabbit fish, which rabbit hole have you been hiding in all this while?

My first time having rabbit fish today (I was told that this is a very Teochew type fish) and I love how well it's done here. Steamed to perfection and topped with preserved pickled mustards and freshly fried bits of lard, this was so amazingly good! Even if you don't like fish, you'd be converted after having this dish.
