My parents recommended this Zi Char place to me, praising its the “home cooked” style of cooking.
I was surprised to find that it’s located in a shopping mall (and not at the typical shop houses in the heartlands). This is one of the reasons why I had to try this place.
The plus point of this place is that you can request the chef to whip up a dish that is not on the menu.
We ordered Kailan Beef ($12), Hot Plate Tofu ($10), Sambal Eggplant with Dried Shrimp ($10) and Pork Ribs ($12).
Although the beef was not very fresh, I like the Cantonese style kailan gravy very much.
The tofu dish was not bad. The egg and tofu was doused with the hor fun gravy. Just look at the steam! So delish!
Although the eggplant dish was not on the menu, the chef offered to whip it up for us. I felt that this dish was a tad too pricey for the portion.
The pork ribs were really lean. They tasted almost like chicken cutlets. I, however, could not taste the “sweet and sour” element in the meat and sauce.
Plain rice cost $0.50 per plate.
I will recommend this place over the Kopitiam food court at level 1 . It cost around $11 per person here (and also depending on what dishes you order).
Hope you enjoyed reading!
