We had heard of this zhi char place from 煮炒来咯 and we decided to try it for family dinner on New Year’s Eve! This place previously was at Toa Payoh Lorong 2 but we tried the outlet at Bedok North, not sure if the Toa Payoh outlet is still there though!
Even though this is situated in a small coffeeshop hidden in Bedok North, one can spot the signboard easily from afar! Looking through the menu, we ordered some of the recommended dishes:
Cod Fish Claypot - one of their signature dishes, the tender cod fish slices are cooked with yam, mushrooms and black fungus in a claypot. The soup was flavoursome and rich, but there was too much coriander!
Bang Bang Chicken - We weren’t sure what the sauce was, but it tasted a bit like curry mustard, slightly sweet and curry-ish! Dar loved the deep fried seaweed atop the chicken!
Fried Youmaicai with Preserved Beancurd - This simple dish was quite well-executed, but slightly spicy! *breathes fire*
Codfish Rolls - Dar’s favourite dish! It didn’t taste too meaty nor fishy, and the codfish rolls were fried to perfection. This would be really popular with kids!
Service was slightly slow and even though it wasn’t crowded, we had to wait for a long time for our dishes. However, taste and quality of food was quite decent, and prices were reasonable, with damage amounting to about $50plus for 4 of us! Wouldn’t mind going back if we were craving some zhichar in the bedok vicinity!
