Fried Beancurd Balls with Kailan @ Zen Fut Sai Kai

Zen Fut Sai Kai Vegetarian Restaurant @ Kitchener Road

I heard of Zen Fut Sai Kai from my grandmother for decades. Now that we have turned vegan and have lesser food options, we decided to give it a shot. The food doesn’t disappoint indeed, tastes like healthier version of local tze char. Was introduced this signature dish – Fried Beancurd Balls with Kailan. They have many dishes that are full of vegetables so I personally opt for those rather than mock meats. The flavours are also very local and tasty.  No wonder they have been around for decades! Also affordable at $20+ for 3 dishes. Will be back to try other dishes. — Address: 147 Kitchener Road, Singapore 208524 Tel: +65 62912350 Operating Hours: Tue-Sun: 10am – 930pm (Closed on Mon)

Ban Leong Wah Hoe Seafood 万隆华和海鲜菜馆 @ Casuarina Road

Super post dated entry – Ban Leong Wah Hoe Seafood 万隆华和海鲜菜馆 tze char at Casuarina Road is my bro-in-law’s ultimate favourite place for crabs. I find the freshness of the crabs similar to Momma Kong’s Crab Shack, but the crabs at Ban Leong are WAY bigger – check out the below pincer size! One time effort to de-shell with a lot of crab meat to enjoy with every part of the crab. I am not usually a fan of la-la but this la-la ($15) is zincy and fresh. The rest of my family loves it! Cereal Prawns ($20) are yummy – meant to be eaten whole, but I usually still de-shell it out of habit. Another one of my favourites – Chicken with Prawn Sauce ($10). Well cooked, not burnt and flavourful because of the prawn sauce. Deer Meat ($15) is also a usual suspect on our dinner table. Tender and well cooked with ginger, onion and spring onions. Both my FIL and I love vegetables, so we usually have 2 vegetable dishes. This time, we …

Chin Chin Eating House @ Purvis Street

My family likes to eat to Chin Chin Eating House @ Purvis Street for weekday evening dinners. We have been there so many times and also introduced many friends and family there. They are efficient and good value for money (usually total $50 for 4 pax). Always crowded without fail! They have Hainanese chefs so their traditional Hainanese fare like Pork Chops are good bets! Their chicken rice is also one of my favourites; I prefer it to the other hot favourite (Yetcon) just opposite Chin Chin Eating House. Great place for local tzechar style food, especially for big groups! — Chin Chin Eating House Address: 19 Purvis Street Phone: 63374640 Hours: Daily, 7am – 9pm
