heard many friends talking about Twochefs, how good and cheap the food here is, making me all excited to visit this place and have a feast.
Even at 8pm when we arrived, the place was fully occupied!
Luckily we made a reservation, if not I guess we had to wait very long for an empty table.Read the full review here!
Iced Milk Tea
Drunken cockles $6
This is not a plate of plain fried cockles; the cockles are stir-fried with vinegar (I suppose), making it taste very appetizing. It doesn't feel raw at all, the cockles were prepared well. I've always been a fan of cockles and I must say I've tried quite a few different types of preparing cockles, but this is the best type of cockles I've tried!!! Cold and tasty.
Vegetables with egg, salted egg and century egg $10
A plate of vegetables submerged in the soup of 3 types of eggs, you might find it too common. But I wouldn't really agree so. Many of us thought this dish was very addictive. The normal egg makes the majority of the sauce, while the century egg adds texture to the soup. The vegetables in general was soft and smooth, which I guess it's why it's well-liked by all of us.
Buttered Ribs (Pork ribs in milk powder) $12
With such a big quantity at only $12 (medium sized), I don't think this dish is pricey. In fact, having your pork ribs coated in milk powder really gives an amazing mouthfeel. Some of the powder melts in your mouth as you chew on the meat. The ribs are boneless as well! This is one of their signature dish and it's definitely a must-have!
Fried buttered prawns (with pork floss) $20
Prawn balls are generally expensive at any zichar stall. At first I was still hesitant about Estelle ordering prawn balls because usually we don't get satisfied ordering prawn balls as they are very little and expensive. But here, Twochefs really prove me wrong. Their prawns are really huge and it was even complimented with pork floss and mayonnaise, all at the price of $20 only!
I once had prawn balls elsewhere at a random hawker centre at $30, and boy, the quantity was much lesser and less tasty than this. In my opinion, this is another must-have too!
Golden Mushroom Beancurd $10
Fried beancurd was submerged in the sweet and sour gravy, coupled with plenty golden mushroom. This was a generally easy-to-swallow dish because of the smooth and gluey gravy, appetizing as well due to its sour element in it.
Overall, the food was in generally great in portion and reasonable priced.
The total cost was about $64 only (for 6 of us)!!! That's like roughly $10 per person, for so many varieties! Sometimes, for such standards, we usually pay roughly $15-$17. So I must say this is a great place for zi char. Cheap and super good food.
I think it's a very good place for dinner with family. The place is 15 minutes walk away from commonwealth mrt station, so it's a little far and inaccessible. It will be better if you have a car though. Then again, for the good food, who minds travelling? ;)
