In clockwise direction starting from the top:
- Golden Mushroom Beancurd 金针菇豆腐 ($8)
- Deep Fried Oat Prawns 麦片虾 (Medium Sized $20),
- Vegetable with Egg, Salted Egg and Century Egg 三蛋时菜 (Small Sized $8),
- Butter Ribs (Medium Sized $12)
I would most likely not come back here again. The butter ribs did not live up to the rave and were too tough sometimes, but I appreciated the unique concept. I enjoyed their oat prawns which were fragrant, tender and crispy all at once albeit a tad too salty for my liking. People who like their food sweet and salty (重口味) would most probably enjoy visiting this place. Compared to other zichars that I have tried before, this stall’s flavors tend to be on the heavier side.
Either take Bus 105 from Commonwealth MRT and alight 2 stops later at Blk 39, or walk there. It’s a walkable distance. At least Commonwealth is sort of central.
There were hits and misses and the stall is pretty overhyped. Too savory for my liking. They probably added quite a bit of MSG because I felt pretty thirsty afterwards.
If I were to order again, I would order the oat prawns and golden mushroom tofu, and try their drunken cockles and some other dish.
Not particularly good, not particularly bad, nothing much to mention about. We were 3rd/4th/5th in the queue and we arrived at about 8pm (!). We waited for about 15-20 minutes before getting a table.
Compared to other hawker experiences elsewhere, this place is a tad stuffier than most, especially if you sit in the centre or closer to the stall. A bit cramped. But great if you sit further away from the stall, especially the tables which are closer to the open air.
We paid $50 for our 4 dishes and 4 bowls of rice. That came up to $12.50 per person for 4 dishes, excluding drinks which were also normal hawker food pricing. Decent.
[Would likely not come back again unless someplace near/at Commonwealth]
