For our regular get-togethers, 3 of the 4 of us chose Zichar this time round so I hunted around for a good Zichar place. Reviewers highly sang praises of this humble store and I decided to check it out for myself. 1) Salted-egg Ribs - recommended by the stall keeper and it wasn't wrong. With so many salted egg everything these days, not surprising they will 'attack' the ribs too. The result was a very fragrant and super tasty plate of ribs. It is not overly salted as feared but really flavourful

For our regular get-togethers, 3 of the 4 of us chose Zichar this time round so I hunted around for a good Zichar place.

Reviewers highly sang praises of this humble store and I decided to check it out for myself.

1) Salted-egg Ribs - recommended by the stall keeper and it wasn't wrong. With so many salted egg everything these days, not surprising they will 'attack' the ribs too. The result was a very fragrant and super tasty plate of ribs. It is not overly salted as feared but really flavourful!

2) Cereal Prawns - one dish that I can't really make well at home. My grandma said it's the fire, we don't have those roaring fire these chefs use to produce that wok-Hei. Prawns were decent in size and the generous spicy cereal made good accompaniment with the rice.

3) Youmai Chye - I LOVE youmai Chye, some call it goose vegetable as it's known that geese love them. When fried so expertly with just garlic, the crunch and taste always send me bouncing happily in my chair.

4) Pork Knuckle - didn't think that a Zichar place would serve this. Gloriously deep fried and very nicely done indeed.

5) Prawn-paste Chicken - nice! Better than many restaurants actually. The batter is really crispy and flavourful. Shiok ah!

6) French beans - good wok Hei taste!! Yumz.

7) Old Cucumber Soup - it's their soup of the day and it's very flavourful! Of course there's MSG lah but I wasn't super thirsty after the meal leh...

Not a place to expect aircon or uniformed service staff, just d*** good Zichar fare!
