This restaurant has got to be one of the best kept zichar secrets in the north! This dish consisted of cod fish, lightly battered and silky soft homemade tofu cubes immersed in a thick sauce and served bubbling in a claypot. Super yummy cos there was a mild charred/wok hei taste to the sauce that helped the sweetness of the cod fish stand out even more.

Don’t let the location of this place daunt you!!! It’s truly worthy zichar and my family really likes the friendly service they provide here. Pro tip: This was part of their CNY festive menu but they do have a similar dish on their regular menu except without the Chinese leek!

Cafe 566 sits quietly in the industrial area at Sungei Kadut. The restaurant has a safari theme both at the entrance as well as the interior. You would see many animal statues like dinosaurs, giraffes, lion, and many others. It is definitely a love for kids! Cafe 566 has a large indoor seating capacity, and has an outdoor seating at the back of the restaurant. It seems that they have satay and rojak too (probably served only at night?).

We patronised the restaurant for lunch and it was quiet. We were the first customers and even when we left at 1pm plus, there was only one other table. In pic, anti-clockwise from top: Whole Curry Fish Head ($53), Crispy Chicken ($32), Dry Fried Prawns ($40), Hot Plate Beancurd ($18), Fried Mee Sua ($24), Sambal Kangkong ($12), Sliced Sotong with Salted Egg ($35), Marmite Pork Ribs ($20). Missing from the picture is the Crab Meat & Fish Maw Thick Soup ($35) - they had a large portion, with all 12 of us getting a rice bowl of soup. You would be very pleased to know that all prices are nett, i.e. no additional charges for GST and service charge.

Disappointment: Sliced Sotong with Salted Egg, Crab meat & fish maw thick soup.

Getting to this secluded zi char spot is mission impossible without a car, but it's well worth the trip. Housed in the old Picket & Rail building along Mandai Road, Cafe 566 is a spacious air-conditioned joint that dishes out quality dishes at affordable prices. There are plenty of seats and parking is free, making this an ideal location for last-minute gatherings with the extended family. Rather amusingly, Cafe 566 retains the old decor of a jungle-themed cafe, so don't be surprised to see old animal statues like gorillas, tortoises and even giraffes. Order a Chilli Crab ($43 per crab) to share and a side of freshly fried Mantous ($0.60 each, minimum order of five) to mop up all that luscious gravy! Apart from the crab, get the umami-rich Deep-fried Sotong with Salted Egg (from $12), the crowd favourite Four Treasure Vegetables (from $10) and the perfectly crisp Marmite Chicken (from $12) to share!
Avg Price: $15 per person

Located in the old Picket and Rail showroom along Mandai Road (just a short 5 minute drive from yew tee), this has been my go-to zi char spot since six years ago.

I was first introduced to Cafe 566 by my boyfriend's parents. There are plenty of seats, service staff are friendly and the food is always so darn tasty — which is why we always return every weekend! They've changed quite a few chefs (there was a period of time when the kitchen was helmed by a Thai chef and the tom yum goong was bombzz) and now the food has been better than ever.

One of my favourite dishes is the Marmite chicken that is unbelievably crispy on the outside yet juicy and tender on the inside. It's a hit with all the customers and I like how they are so generous with their marmite glaze 🤤 #Burpproved

The batter was fragrant, but not overly so (which is a good thing), and there is a subtle spicy kick in the aftertaste that makes it all the more delicious. Rated only 3.5 stars because the batter whilst fragrant was fried a little too much; it was a little too crispy, almost borderlining a cracker. Some might also prefer a richer salted egg flavour. 📍Cafe 566 (its actually a zichar restaurant)

$16 for 5 prawns. Small size. Oatmeal was fried very well! Very crispy and enjoyed that very much! Prawns were fried with a layer of batter before mixing with oatmeal. Prawns were fresh.
