Butter Pork Ribs

57 Reviews

Still a popular dish, almost on every table.
Sweetness from the milk powder overwhelmed the otherwise succulent ribs which taste good on its own.

Highlight of this zi char place. Come before 6.30pm to avoid waiting!


Ordered the butter pork ribs (boneless), spinach with three egg and fried rice. Portion was small but the tastiness made up for it. Enjoyed the non-pretentious and comfortable setting of eating zichar style :)

Ordered butter pork ribs, omelette, and vegetable w/egg, salted egg, and century egg. All foods are good. Worth to try!

This is a zi char store that serves decent food, although nothing super amazing in my opinion! The milk powder pork ribs is one of their most popular dishes - you either love it or hate it!

I personally dont enjoy the mix, but i know of people who love it

1. Herbal Chicken Soup ($14)
2. Spinach with 3 kinds of egg ($10)
3. Hotplate tofu ($8)
4. Honey glazed pork ribs ($10)
5. Horfun ($4)
6. 4 bowls of rice ($2)


This is probably one of the zi char dishes i’ve been wanting to try for awhile and finally had the chance to. The pork ribs are covered in milk powder and the combination of the ribs and milk powder was initially abit strange but it slowly grew on me. The boneless ribs made it easy to eat and it was tender as well but beware as the milk powder rly sticks to your mouth when it dissolves. Not sure if I would order this again but it’s definitely worth a try.

This dish is a MUST ORDER at Two Chefs!!! It’s kind of a misnomer though - it’s called butter pork ribs but really, it’s crispy pork buried under heaps of milk powder fried with fragrant curry leaves and a few chilli slices. Not sure how they do it, but the whole dish is kept so dry and not oily. Don’t say never warn you ah, this dish is just damn shiok la and you may find yourself polishing off all the milk powder bits (like me HEHE).

Other dishes worth trying here are the golden tofu with enoki mushrooms and the herbal chicken. Also tried the stir fried yam - while its good, it’s not quite like the Pu Tien one. Overall, food here is value for money but pro tip: do come early to queue as it is super popular.

the pork ribs is the signature so must order. not really for me as im not a milk person. the ribs were generously spammed with milk powder and sugar and tasted kinda sweet. i prefer my pork to be more savoury. but this dish does has quite a lot of fans.
venison was ok. tender. fish soup normal. beancurd with golden mushroom was very good to 下饭 with. the hor fun was imba nice. its the san lou style. white colour one. but very flavourful with a slight charred taste. my favourite dish of the night.
$15 per pax.

Butter Pork Ribs, the name of this dish doesn’t sound unique at all, until you see it served on your table.
It is Two Chefs Eating Place’s signature dish, deep fried pork ribs mixed with condensed milk powder. Yes, milk powder, and yes, it is sweet. The verdict? It is good! We can’t decide which one is stronger, the sweetness of the milk or the saltiness from the pork. They just mix together in every bite.
