A surprisingly good Zhi Char place.

1) Curry Fish Head- fish was fresh, meat was white and silky smooth. Curry was damn good. Easily 1 of the better Fish Head Curry I ever had. High recommended.

2) Fried Pork - Crispy and flavourful, one of the more popular dishes here at JB 101, came here twice already, and both times also ordered this.

3) La La beehoon
- 1 of the Signature dishes here, the LaLa were fresh and the dish tasted delicious

4) Sambal Sotong
- fresh and flavourful.

5) Sambal Kangkong
- Not bad, flavourful and sambal was not too spicy, garlicky.

White restaurant definitely serves 1 of the better white bee hoon u will ever have.

Used to order these at least twice a month on food delivery app when i stayed at punggol previously.

Their other zhi char dishes are ok, but the main reason u are here, is for their white beehoon!

KEK is a well-known zhi char place here at Alexandra. Getting parking lots here will always be a challenge here during meal times.

Gets very packed in the restaurant as well, so make your reservations before coming down.

1) Signature Moonlight Hor Fun
- one of their signature dish, strong wok hei with thick and sticky texture due to the 2 raw eggs. A must have here

2) Sharing Platter
- Golden Pearl Roll
- Prawn roll
- Yam Basket
- You tiao with Seafood Paste
- a great platter for sharing, especially to try their signature Golden Pearl Roll & Prawn Roll.
- all crispy and tasted good. Must order item.

3) Crab Bee Hoon Soup
- Not their signature dish, but soup was flavourful and crab was fresh.

4) Claypot Liver
- a must have dish here. The best dish today, sauce was damn good and liver was not overcooked whatsoever. Just right.

5) Coffee Pork Ribs
- very distinct coffee taste. Pork Ribs were tender and the first plate to be cleared today.

6) Salted Egg Sotong
- lots of good reviews on this and rightly so, most value for money, as the sotong pieces seem to be endless. Each small piece is well coated with salted Egg.

7) Sambal Kangkong
- every zhi char dinner must have this, and the Sambal Kangkong here definitely meets my high standard.

8) Spinach with 3 kinds egg
- quite ok. Nothing really fantastic, but not the worst I ever had.

Yong Kee Seafood is a Zhi Char establishment that opens from 5.45pm till late(2.45am, according to google).

They serve some damn good zhi char and their speciality here is their Mee Sua Gor & Chaota Bee Hoon.

There are tables available indoors in the coffee shop, but opted to sit outside and enjoy the free outdoor music atmosphere from next door

1) Mee Sua Gor: Basically Mee Sua in Thick Soup. Surprisingly flavourful. Goes very well with pepper and vinegar, eating it machiam like shark fin soup.

2) Chaota Bee Hoon: Damn Crispy & Good, may look plain on the surface, but all their prawns and other ingredients are hidden beneath this layer of ultra fried Bee hoon.

3) Dried Fried Minced Pork with Prawns in Tofu Skin: this is also very good, flavourful and this plate is the first to be cleared.

4) Hot Plate Tofu: the sauce was thick and flavourful, egg was still runny.

Hua Yu Wee is an old school establishment located along Upper East coast road, and has been around since the 1950s.

The restaurant itself is located inside a huge bungalow with indoors and outdoor seating. The interior had a very retro vibe.

One of Hua Yu Wee signature dish, is their Feng Sha Chicken, which has been De-Boned, flatten and fried into crispy strips. Delicious.

Comes with a green chilli dip for some added spiciness.

A video of this place on Social Media captured my attention, being such a sucker for Sambal Stingray, I had to come here to try it.

Le 樂 Restaurant seems like a place that only recently opened and is located at Tampines Ave 4, which is quite a bustling place late at night, with lots of food options.

1) Sambal Stingray @$15/$18
- Had the $18 portion, the Sambal overflow, Stingray was slightly marinated before cooking, Stingray was fresh. Really not bad.

2) Signature La La Soup @$15
- Generous amount of LaLa, soup was tasty and have that Chinese wine taste. LaLa was fresh, but the soup was just great man

3) Sambal Kangkong @$10(Small)
- Malaysia Style sambal kangkong, a little on the sweeter side of things. Tasted halal, becoz don't have that Pork Lard taste. And $10 for vegetable dish, a bit ex, $8 would have been a better price.

New Hong Kong Delight is a store located at Ayer Rajah Food Centre. Its a typical zhi char store, with affordable pricing.

Was at ARFC recently to eat the sambal stingray at the next unit, and notice plenty of patrons at this stall, and I notice lots of orders for their pork liver.

1) Pork Liver with rice(Ginger Onion Sauce)
- pork liver was tender and was not overcooked whatsoever. Sauce was alsi quite good. @$5, this is really affordable.

2) Hor Fun- Evident Wok Hei, but not flavourful enough, tasted a little bland.

3) Sambal Prawn Omelette- rather good, prawns were bouncy and the sambal wasn't too spicy, but was flavourful.
