came here on a whim after my friend suggested this place; who can pass up on anything salted egg yolk right? was floored by the huge portion of fried chicken coated with the salted egg yolk sauce, atop rice and a runny egg 😛 loved how generous they were with the sauce too! the service was great, our group got free drinks, and the owners are really friendly :-) would return again in a heartbeat. 10/10 recommend!

Very flavorful Sambal chili sauce. The vege was fresh and crunchy. Great with rice.

Not as nice as the sweet and sour pork. The sauce was also quite sweet. I liked the spiciness.

This was really quite bland and not a lot of garlic. But could taste the fresh sweetness of the asparagus. Ask for more garlic.

The special spicy sauce was actually Sambal chili sauce. Very savory and spicy. Fried with garlic, spring onions and onions, and some slices of bell peppers. So fragrant. Included some fried mushrooms that burst with juice. Yummy.

Chinese spinach was soft and fresh. Supposed to have eggs, salted eggs and century eggs inside but I asked for no century eggs. Didn’t affect the taste one bit. Loved the broth. Immersed my rice inside and it was fabulous.

Very very tasty, with a spicy, slightly ketchupy flavor to the sauce. Lots of eggs inside. A beautiful dish.

I honestly really enjoyed the thick curry that was super fragrant, not overly coconutty or cloying (read: not jelak), the fragrant spices clearly coming through; but I was a little disappointed at how there were almost no accompanying ingredients. One of my favourite things about fish head curry is the abundance of veggies in there — usually brinjal, tomatoes, okra even — and I was surprised to find barely a ladle’s worth of veggies in Fragrant Wok’s curry 😕 Still if you ain’t a sucker for the veggies like I am, you’d find the fresh fish and good curry pleasing enough.

Find foolproof seafood and zi char at this casual restaurant in Tampines, having recently shifted from Hillview. Order the 'Har Cheong Kai' ($10) and Pork Rendang Nachos ($18) while waiting for mains. Get the Beef USDA Black Angus 'Choice' Rib-Eye ($15 per 100g) served with caramelised onions, Idaho potato wedges, sea salt flakes and fried rice. Great for sharing is the delicious Garlic Baked Crab (from $48).

My attention is drawn to the liver roll, which is hardly available in the restaurants' menu nowadays. The offal gives it a creamy interior encased in a crispy exterior wrapped with beancurd skin.
