Suited for small groups, grab your friends for a no-frills contemporary zi char meal at this Jalan Besar diner. Get Chef J’s exquisitely grilled BBQ Pork ($14.80) that is amazing when dipped into their tangy-sweet Thai-style sauce. Go all out with the Singapore Style Chilli Prawns ($17.80) that pairs best with their Mini Mantous ($2 for 4) to mop up all that glorious sauce. If you're lucky, get your hands on the collagen-rich Signature Brandy White Fish Soup ($9.80) with slices of white fish, cabbage and Shimeji mushrooms — only 20 portions are available daily.
