Chili Crab – 2 crabs for $25-very nice, taste just nice, not so spicy, i think they should make the taste stronger a bit for chilli crab lovers like us, maybe healthy version. : )
Red Grouper Steamboat – $35 (small serving)-the soup tastes so nice with ginseng, with so much vegetables and ingredients too, need refill of soup if can, the fish is nice with the fragrant soup, great for cold weather too.
Lotus Roots with Macadamia – $12 (small serving)-special dish created by boss, i don't think can find it elsewhere, very good combination.
Salted Egg Yolk Prawn – $16 (small serving)-it tasted very nice in fact and the prawns are very big.
Assam Fish Head – $22-this taste is sweet and sour, i love it so much, one of my favourite dish, love the assam, very rich and tasty with the fish head with so much meat. worth to eat in fact.
French Beans with Shrimps – $8 (small serving)-their shrimps are higher grade one ,which they fried with fried beans, they put a lot, very nice.
Crocodile Meat – $20 - $30 (seasonal price)-first time eating crocodile meat, very tasty with ginger, it is not as scary as it is , in fact it tastes like tian ji, and a bit like chicken meat too.
Creamy Crab – 2 crabs for $25-this one also ok to me, i stlll love chilli crab, these 2 crabs dishes tasted well with the buns, i wish for more buns in fact.
This is my first food-tasting experience with openrice with such great food, as above, the crabs may be the main specialty of this zhi cha restaurant, but i personally enjoy their red grouper steamboat and assam fish head very much, for the vegetables dishes, i love the lotus roots with macadamia nuts, very special dish and very creative, i like the crocodile meat too, very special and tasty too. You can satisfy both the crabs and fish lovers in this zhi cha restaurant, prices are overall reasonable. Overall, their zhi cha gives me the impression is very healthy kind, favours not so strong, suitable for all ages,not so much salt added, which nowadays people like, which i personally love too.
One more thing to mention is that Jin Sha Wan 金沙湾 is a subsidiary of Tong Garden Seafood Restaurant at Tampines which has been around for more than 40 years. Wow, should go try that one one of these days too.
