Top Dishes

What you should order based on community favourites


From the Burpple community

600g of Char Siew ($7.50 / 100g)
- Rich sweet glaze
- Tender melt-in-your-mouth meat
- Very similar to western-style pork ribs
- Very 'jelat' after awhile; Very meaty
- Highly recommended

300g of pork belly ×2 ($7.50 / 100g)
- Crunchy crackling
- Typical good pork belly
- Good fat-to-meat ratio

Half soya sauce chicken ($18)
- Moist and tender meat
- Soya sauce was just right, not too saltish
- Flavour from the sauce permeated throughout the meat and skin
- Highly underrated dish (as typically gets overshadowed by the char siew); Must try!

Charcoal Beancurd ($14.80)
- Charcoal colour just for visual appeal
- Crisp beancurd skin on top of soft silky beancurd

Special XO Sambal Fried Rice ($13.80)
- Sambal was far too mild; Hardly tasted any spice
- Totally lacking in XO flavour
- Only bright side was that it was not oily
- Overall, it was too 1-dimensional in flavour (Other Zi Char restaurants serve much better Yang Zhou Fried Rice)

Homemade Ice Lemon Tea ($3.50)
- Small cup (Overpriced)
- Too sour; Lemon completely overpowered the tea



I have to give it to the char siew. It’s pretty legit.
BUT, the burpple beyond vouchers are almost impossible to use if you are dining in with a group of 2.

- first of all, those signature meats (i.e. Char Siew, roasted pork, etc) are NOT part of the 1-for-1; the voucher for meat is really for other normal meat dishes.
- secondly, the voucher for vegetable can be used for vegetable ONLY. I.e veggie with tofu does NOT count as a vegetable dish.
- thirdly, the voucher for rice or noodles are strictly for that specific category only. For two pax, I guess no one in their right mind would order a fried rice*2 or hor fun*2.

Overall, with that being said, it’s a place I may come back again but definitely with a group of 4-5 pax at least.

This is really one of the best roasted char siew I have ever had?! MUST TRY!! (Not available on Burpple beyond as part of their 1-for-1s but we had to get this & here’s a glorious 400g for us) Look at meat, with a shiny layer of melt-in-the-mouth fats, worth every calorie man 🙌🏻 the different sauces available are also so very good!! Had this with their yang zhou fried rice & XO fried rice, with their vegetables which were pretty good as well!
