Our pal had decided to treat the rest of us a Zhi Char Dinner to celebrate his next milestone in life (Just Married) and Sin Hoi Sai
Eating House was voted for its well known reputation . Although it was not the peak hours for a proper dinner, we were informed that no internal seating were available for the 9 + 1 (9 Adults + 1 Toddler) of us. There goes our opportunity to dine in a cooler environment after a hot day of work and welcome the Alfresco Dining!
Streets (Our Alfresco Dining Area)
Enjoy the enchanting lights as we walked down the sides of Sin Hoi Sai Eating House's building, especially with the welcoming decorations of Singapore Flags to commemorate our upcoming National Day 2013.
Welcomed by 2 kinds of appetizers (Spicy Ah Cha & Braised Peanuts) while waiting for everyone to settle down.
We are the minority to order its Barley drink while most of them were the usual Coca Cola Supporters.
Our first dish was served, Kangkong Belacan
and it comes without any serving of rice initially. Look at the stir fried Chinese spinach, they are mixed together with fermented shrimp paste and dried shrimp. You cant miss out it's crunchiness! This dish is not that spicy too!
I was kind of surprised by how they served this dish. Hotplate with tofu was served covered initially and was opened when it reached our table. The simple looking plain dish was given a "great pour" full with minced meat gravy and followed by the sizzling sound of the hotplate. The gravy especially with minced meat, makes a perfect match with our bowls of plain rice.
Pipping hot Har Cheong Kai (Prawn Paste Chicken)
was fried to golden brown perfection with each piece filled with the awesome flavours and richness of the prawns! Yum Yum!
Prawn Paste Chicken
Seafood Goodies filled the Yi Pin Guo (Royal Pot)
! Prawns, abalone, fish maw, scallop, broccoli and mushroom. All of us dine like Kings and Queens!
Yi Pin Guo
, the deep fried prawns in better, is one of the famous dish in most Ci Zhar restaurant . Prawns are fresh and mixed with aplenty of richly textured crunchy oat flakes. Some like to eat with the shell while some chose to remove them before consumption. Enjoy these hot stuff without the use of utensils, they are absolutely finger licking good!
Heh Chor (Prawn Roll)
were equally good - Impressive and not too oily. It wont go wrong with them dipped into the sweet sauce that come along with the plate!
Service rendered was great and attentive. One of our chopsticks dropped onto the floor, the next moment a chopstick came as a replacement!
. When the bills are cleared, the staff will actually place a sign on the table to thank their customer for the patronage.
Total Damage for 9 Pax:
(1) Take a chance to visit their toilet, you may find their toilet sink rather interesting.
(2) Parking maybe an issue as the lots are limited, be early.
(3) For those who are dinning in big groups, do remember to make reservations if you want to enjoy the air-conditioned dining environment.
