https://www.umakemehungry.com/2021/03/hong-kong-street-zhen-ji.htmlWeekends are meant for good meals and with the sibling's recommendation, we have agreed to head down to Ang Mo Kio Hong Kong Street Zhen Ji for a Cze Char dinner despite the heavy downpour.Hong Kong Street Zhen JiThe dish was a noteworthy item just as recommended on their menu. Cuttlefish given was generous and was soft and chewable while the Sambal was not too spicy together with the cut pieces of Fried Kang Kong.Fried Kang Kong Sambal with Cuttlefish 鱿鱼蕹菜 - $12Large chunks of fish meat with slices of ginger and vegetables together with thick bee hoon are the usual sights that we expect from Cze Char's stall Fish Meat Noodle Soup. I was rather disappointed with the soup as it was rather bland without much taste but on a good note, usage of MSG is minimal.Sum Kee Fish Meat Noodle Soup 珍记鱼肉粗米粉 - $7The pork ribs are indeed very flavourful with sweetness and sour taste. It was intense and the amount of meat given was generous. It's recommended just as what they state on their menu.Sum Kee Pork Ribs 珍记排骨王 - $10"Wok Hei" taste from the "San Lao" Hor Fun was present. This individual serving of Hor Fun had a significant use of fish slices as well as bean sprouts.Sum Kee "San Lao" Hor Fun 招牌三捞河粉 - $6It was a tasty and recommended dish on its menu but, to be honest, it's good but not to die for as there are better ones out there.Fish Slices and Bean SproutsThe exterior texture of the roll was indeed very thin and crispy, unlike what I had in most Cze Char Stall. As for its fillings, its rather ordinary, pairing up with the sweet sauce provided.Crispy Prawn Roll 珍记虾枣 - $10Though the cereal prawn was packed with fragrance and hints of milk powder, we still find that the taste of prawns was kind of lacking and bland. Cereal Prawn 香脆麦片虾 - $22The taste from the "star" of the dish was not up to our expectation but instead the cereal that is complimenting the prawns taste better as a whole. Well, I would have skipped this dish.Close up on Cereal PrawnWith some hits and misses, if I'm going for popular dishes like San Lao Hor Fun, Fish Meat Noodle Soup and Crispy Prawn Roll, I will most likely go to the usual Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hun. However, their menu was rather standard and not with a variety like Hong Kong Street. In addition, with so many dishes ordered, we felt that the price was reasonable & pocket friendly for a popular Cze Char place like this. It is definitely a good place for a family meal during the weekends and do note that reservations can be made in advance for big groups only. continue reading
This used to be the small Hong Kong Street Chun Kee at Block 151, but when the owner sold the shop and moved to block 158, they did not know that the new owner would register the new shop under the same name. Hence you know have two zi char shops both famed for their sliced fish hor fun under the same name, Hong Kong Street Chun Kee both within walking distance of each other! Hence, the owner has now registered the shop as Hong Kong Street Sum Kee to differentiate themselves from the competitor!Nonetheless, my family decided to give the original zi char shop a try.1. Hong Kong Fried Noodles $4.50The noodles were reasonably wet, even with some wok hei! The portions are generally huge and you can easily share this plate of noodles. One of the best hong kong fried noodles I have eaten in a long while!2. Yang Chow Fried Rice $4The Wok hei here was alot stronger than the hong kong fried noodles, but my dad felt like he tasted some MSG. But my mother and I didn't feel thirsty after the meal. There were a couple of crunchy fresh prawns and the rice was very flavourful.3. Sweet and Sour Pork (Small) $10For $10, they are very generous, there was alot to eat. The pork was very tasty and tender, however the pork could be abit more crispy.Nonetheless, a great place for a great family meal, with a very small bill. Do make a reservation if plan to eat here from 7pm onwards, they get very busy and sometimes the kitchen falls behind on the orders, which is expected for these cofffee shop zi char stalls. continue reading
