Thanks to the recommendations of the previous reviewer, his suggestions were perfect. We ordered Assam Fish - served nicely on a shallow plate with solid fuel below to keep it warm. The gravy was superb, together with the pineapple taste, the Assam taste is above average. We also ordered the bak Kut Teh with extra fried beancurd skin, soup is refillable and the spare ribs was nicely cooked, soft and has hints of herbal taste in it. You can tell it could hv been better if its cooked longer but this instantly cooked version is still acceptable. Also next is the cereal toufu, interesting combination replacing the usual prawn dish with toufu. Lastly we had the salted egg fish skin, crispy but was hoping the salted egg coating is done more evenly.Overall an above average eat. Free parking. Super fast service. Out 1st dish was served as soon as the drinks were served. Not sure if the automated iPad ordering helps . Our bill works out to be $61 including 5 cans of drinks. Will definitely want to try the cabbage chicken next. continue reading

Goodyear Seafood Village is located in Tampines Avenue, just off Tampines Link nearby the temple. Although this place is slightly secluded, don't be surprised when you see a full car park especially during dinner time. We actually have know this place for a while back, as their traditional fish head steamboat is very good. However last year the food quality fell dramatically. It seem that everything is back to the good times, with new signature dishes to tantalise your taste buds. The current Goodyear Seafood has two sections. There is a section which is air-conditioned which filled up quite fast, and the coffeeshop / outdoor. This review is based on our two recent visits to this establishment. Assam Fish Head ($25). One of the Chef's recommendation dish. The fish head is fresh and done properly. The Assam gravy which was thick, tangy, slightly spicy and sweet really opens up your appetite and really goes well with the white rice. Bak Kut Teh – Pontian Style ($11) & Kidney and Liver for BKT ($5). One of the recent addition to this restaurant. The BKT is has a stronger herbal flavour compare to the Teochew BKT version, however the herbs not as strong as Klang BKT. The soup is very comforting, while the meat is tender and huge. Little Devil and I actually like the extra care in the way they serve the liver and kidney. To ensure that it is not over cook after they blanched it to the right doneness, they serve the soup separately. So when you eat the liver and kidney, you will get the right texture. Salted Egg Fish skin ($15). What else can you ask for? Crispy fish skin with the saltiness of salted egg. This dish basically just speak for itself. Cereal Beancurd ($16). The egg beancurd is fried properly and the soft texture of the cereal is just so inviting to accompany the rice or other dishes. The price of the beancurd is slightly overpriced though. For the vegetables, we tried Bean Sprout with Salted Fish ($10) & French Bean ($7). The bean sprout is quite oily but has a good “wok hei”. The French Bean is fresh and crunchy, topped with mince dried prawns. Simple yet delicious. During our first visit, the service staff recommended German Roast Pork Knuckle ($22). This dish is actually quite disappointing. The skin is not fried evenly as some of the skin is chewy instead of crispy. The sauce and the pork knuckle seems does not goes well with each other. Although the staff is very proud of their pork knuckle, I personally would not order it again. Service in this establishment is very minimum. There is only two service staff that take the order, so during the busy period, it is very difficult to get their attention. The rest of the support staff will help in delivering food, getting rice or drink and clean up the table. So do keep your expectation of the service in check. At least there is no Service Charge popping up in your bill. Overall, Goodyear Seafood Village is a Zi Char establishment. They have some nice dishes on their Chef's Recommendation section and the BKT is definitely a must try. Price is very reasonable and the best part is they do not charge GST and Service Tax. For weekend dinner, just make sure you make reservation if you want the seat in air conditioned section.

Boss is treating us lunch and he brought us to a very remote place for cheap and good food. This place is located in the most remote part of Tampines off the main road behind a chinese temple. The old school shophouse resembles those that we usually see in Malaysia.The shophouse has got a non-aircon coffee shop selling economic rice etc. and an aircon tse char area selling signature Bak Kut Teh and various Stir-fry dishes. Boss ordered a Large Bak Kut Teh, Large Assam Fish head and a few other dishes to share.Signature BKTThey claimed that this is prepared Pontian style with lotsa fried tau kee as topping. The soup base was flavorful, pork ribs were tender but I still prefer the Port Klang style ones with taupok, pig intestines, pork belly etc. Overall, an ok dish.Assam Fish headThis was very good, serving portion of the fish head is huge. The assam gravy was thick and very tangy, I would've prefer it to be spicier though...but still nice.Coffee ribsThis is alright, pork ribs are tender and had hints of coffee flavor...not too bad.Yam riceThey serve a choice of plain rice or yam rice, I opted for yam rice. It was pretty good with lotsa yam cubes and hae bee inside.The service here was decent and very prompt. Dishes were cheap and of above average quality. Recommended for diners who drives only. continue reading
