This plate was worth every calories & the wok hei taste was amazeballs. 🀩πŸ€ͺ ⁣

While this dish has a chef hat, personally, we found that the flavour was very salty and overwhelming. It's two big prawns cut into 4. For $18, it did not meet our expectations.


We spent a total of $132 for 6 canned drinks, Assam fish head, pork rib with bitter gourd, prawn omelette, Kai lan with roast pork and beef horfun, for 7 people! I love the beef hor fun for the tender beef and slightly spicy kick!

Swing by this coffeeshop for a lunch hour feast. Order their Big Prawn Hor Fun (from $18) for thick, eggy and mildly spicy gravy over a bed of hor fun and big, juicy prawns. Also great is the signature Claypot Yong Tau Foo ($23) β€” delicious homemade fish-paste stuffed beancurd, brinjals, and chillis in a flavourful sauce. Pro tip: If you're coming for dinner, be sure to call to reserve in advance, and dress comfortably because you are sure to work up a sweat!

Damn thirsty shortly aft the meal. Hor Fun was super spicy! Bee Hoon looks even spicier but actually it's less spicy than the hor fun and the soup is slightly sweet. Claypot Yong Tau Foo really oily but nice. There is a lot of fish paste stuffings!

For drinks they have homemade barley and canned drinks ($1.50). Was disappointed that their homemade barley ran out as early as before 7pm.

Would recommend making a reservation if going in a large group as the queue can get quite long. They do not accept reservations for smaller grps tho. Their number is also very difficult to get through. Probably best time to call wld be when they are operating for lunch hr where they are less busy.

We chanced upon this restaurant and decided to give it a try as it seemed pretty popular. They just opened for business at 5pm and there was already a queue at about 5.30pm. We ordered their signature Big Prawn Hor Fun ($18) and prawn paste chicken ($13). Their Hor fun didn’t disappoint. It is pretty unique as the sauce is not the usual Hor fun sauce. But will probably not order the prawn paste chicken if we visit again. Pretty mediocre.

BILL: $87.20 including 3 canned drinks and 1 rice

WAITING TIME: Queued at 6pm on Sunday, food arrived at 6.12pm

Big Prawn Hor Fun Medium, $36 (Yep, price increased. Also available in $18/54)
-- Still tastes as good as when as the previous times. But a little too many fried shallots mixed in the sauce.

Claypot Yong Tau Foo $15
-- SO GOOD?!

Crispy Roasted Chicken $14
-- Skin was crispy but meat was dry. Not nice enough to order again.

Bittergourd pork ribs $15
-- Thankfully not too bitter. Not nice enough to order again.

Surrounded by trendy cafes and bars is a Zi Char place that serves solid Cantonese fare at Keong Saik Road.

Their signature Big Prawn Hor Fun’s thick, eggy and mildly spicy gravy resembles the familiar chili crab sauce. Packed with umami, this hor fun is #messydelicious and the prawns are big and de-shelled for you.

Be sure to come early to get a table and avoid disappointment.

It’s been 2 years since i last visited Kok Sen and their big prawn hor fun was still as yummy as ever!

What made this dish so good was definitely the gravy which was so thick, flavourful and filled with umami richness. Hidden beneath the pool of gravy were the wok hei laden hor fun and prawns that were big & succulent. Shiok! πŸ˜‹

One the best hor fun I had. I will always recommend friends to eat here if we are nearby.
