This stall has been featured in Yummy King and other media reports. Well, I managed to ramble down to it on a Saturday evening with some friends and tried out their herbal duck soup, braised duck and other side dishes. The food was quite tasty, the duck decently braised and the soup was well cooked (many hours I'm sure), so much so that the duck meat slipped off their bones easily. Piece of cake for those with lazy jaws :). The specialty of this shop (nestled in an old shophouse on the periphery of Kampong Glam and opposite the Concourse Residences) is its herbal soups, specifically its Shi Quan Ya Tang (十全鸭汤) which means 'complete duck soup' - a reference to the range of herbs and spices used in its brewing. And the verdict is ...... POWER ! I don't know the ingredients (ok, I do have some idea) but the soup dishes sure give a helluva strong kick to the tastebuds and senses. I think it is also what the Chinese elderly like to call 'heaty' - full of yang energy if it is to be so believed :) So be warned, this is hot stuff.

Show me on map
This is the Golden Mile (Beach Road) hawker centre branch of the Sri Bistari chain of ayam penyet (smashed fried chicken), which is an Indonesian (the owner of Sri Bistari reportedly first discovered the dish in Batam) version of chicken rice where a chicken thigh/wing is pummelled and served on a wooden board with a sweet chilli paste and vegetables. It seems the hype over this dish, starting from the end of last year(2006), has died down somewhat. The verdict: a pretty average fried chicken and passable rice to go with it. The best part was actually the chilli paste, which was spicy yet sweet and had a tinge of garlicky flavour (another of my fav. spices). Update May 2007:On a second trip here, my friend and I both agreed that the standard (specifically the fried chicken) has dropped and is now barely passable. Nope, pummelling a not-so-tasty fried chicken thigh/wing isn't going to make it taste any better. Let's hope they do something about the quality of the chicken. I'd hate to see this dish disappear from the Singapore food scene.

Lai Huat Seafood Restaurant

Categories: Chinese, Zhi Char, Seafood

Located at 25/27 Tyrwhitt Road, Singapore 207531
Show me on map
This corner-coffeeshop-located eatery is popular for their pepper crayfish and belacan fish (which is not as fresh as I would like it to be, although this is expected for fried fish dishes as most Chinese chefs know to reserve their better stock for steamed fish dishes.). Still, it is one of the more consistent and affordable zhichar/seafood shops around. More than a decade ago, it was situated in an old pre-war shophouse near Beach Road, then it moved to Lavender Street (beside the MRT station) and for the past few years it has been operating at this little side road parallel to Jalan Besar, near the Jalan Besar Stadium / Swimming / Sports Complex. It seems to have opened a branch (223 Rangoon Road) and another along Mountbatten Road (to be verified) in the past few months (2006).

As of end-2006, I noticed at least 3 or 4 copycat Pu Tien-style restaurants and coffeeshop eateries with similar names in the Jalan Besar area and none so blatant as "Pu Tien Seafood Restaurant" at the corner shop of the row of shophouses along Kitchener Road where this restaurant is based. Don't be fooled, this restaurant (at No.127) is the original one with this name and was set up back in year 2000. And it is still one of the best for 兴化 food.

Show me on map
This traditional Teochew stall was originally from the area near the old Thong Chai (or Tong Chi to Teochews) Medical Institution in Chinatown/Merchant Road. It is famous for a Teochew dish called ter kah tang (猪脚冻) made from pig trotters that is boiled with pig skin and other parts until a soft gelatinous base is formed, then chilled into a jelly and served cold in small strip pieces. The other signature dish is white shark's meat (白牙沙鱼), another Teochew favourite. This stall's shark meat is extremely white and fresh - the owner says he will not sell it for the day if the morning market cannot provide the quality sharks he requires. The food is served with two types of sauce - a plum-extract-based sweet sauce sprinkled with crushed peanuts, and a quite-common sourish chilli paste. So good are the sauces that the owner charges (20c @) for extras helpings. I didn't care much for the chilli sauce but the plum sauce went very well with the two dishes.

Lao Ah Di's bak kut teh (pork ribs soup) belongs to the clear-peppery-style category. The meat was rather bland and tasteless and you'll need the black soy sauce and chilli they provide in the small saucer. The soup, though, was sufficiently peppery without being overly spicy. The whole cloves of garlic in the soup no doubt helped as well. Open from 7am to 3pm, and closed on Mondays.

This chilli crab and pepper crab specialist serves up some of the best value-for-money crabs around. It obviously does so by focusing solely on the food, ingredients and cooking, coz you'll find things here a little short in the service and ambience department. First the food court where it is located is a decrepit 80s'ish non-aircon building. Be prepared to get sweaty while you devour your crustaceans, spicy king prawns, crayfish and fried chicken here. Thankfully the stall is located at the side of the building (it gets breezy if you're lucky) next to a side road with some parking lots (free after 5pm).
Warning No.2: you'll have to pay first when you order your food - unless you're Anthony Bourdain, who wrote about this stall in his piece for the New York Times on Singapore cuisine last year (2006).
I can only think of 2 reasons for this strange pay-first practice :
(1) some punks had previously eaten and sped off in their boy racer cars without paying.
(2) owner's a stickler for clean dollar notes - no chilli stains please !.

Well when you want great food and value-for-money, somethings' got to give. But where else can you get a nice crab meal for $20 per person (2 large crabs and side dishes for a group of 5) ? ... and I can honestly say the buns (to be had with the chilli crab's sauce) are the best I've tasted in a long time. No, make that in memory. Great buns, really. 2007 Jul update: well, it looks like I might have spoken too fast, the price of the crabs here, it seems, have gone up since my Mar 2007 visit, and is now about $40/kg. Well, quality is still there. Damned GST increase ! or maybe not...read on... This mini-hawker centre is going to close down soon (en-bloc fever ?!), and quite a few of the other seafood/hawker stalls have already moved out (did I hear someone say 'less competitition' ?). Fret not, cause Bayshore Delicious seafood (the one owned, I think, by actor Tang Hu) was spotted nearby in a coffeeshop nearby facing Upper Serangoon Road. Watch this space (www.goodfood.sg) for further news. Meanwhile, go now to savour your favourite food before it's gone !

However, be warned that everything here has very light, if any, seasoning. The soup (and the satay) is quite bland. Then again, the fact that the stall dares keep the seasoning light, does indicate its confidence in the freshness of the food, and you can be sure that they've skipped the MSG and tongue-numbing salt/chilli sauces.

I wasn't able to discern much difference between this stall's and the other (Razack's) two units away.

I'm told this vegetarian eatery was a previous Yummy King winner. It actually consists of a few stalls in a coffeeshop selling various vegetarian dishes that mimic conventional Chinese hawker food. The coffeeshop is at a corner-end of a row of HDB shophouses facing Sims Avenue. Some Buddhist temples are found in this area of Geylang, which explains why you'll see the occasional nun or monk buying their food at this shop. There are zhi-char-style vegetarian dishes, a vegetarian yong tau foo stall and a mixed rice/beehoon stall. Prices are very reasonable from $2 up. I've tried the mixed bee hoon several years ago which didn't leave any impression. A more recent visit saw me having a bowl of laksa which was pretty decent tasting considering that they couldn't use animal-based ingredients and condiments that many a good laksa maker tends to use, such as dried shrimps, mini ikan bilis (chinese silver fish 银鱼) and belacan paste. I'll be back soon for the zhi-char noodle dishes which seem to be popular going by a survey of the diners here.

This stall serves up a good portion of meat with each stick of satay ($0.40 each). The meat is seasoned and marinated with an interesting blend of spices of which I could discern tamarind(I think) and lemongrass. This is supposed to be in an Indonesian style of preparation, and is not over-grilled unlike most other satay stalls. Because of this, the meat is tender and maintains its amazing juiciness so if you're not careful, the juice could drip unexpectedly onto your clothes!
