Good version, it's like zaishun's but abit more firm. Salted fish is just that one piece

Good, but not spectacular. If you come it's for the kailan beef

Absolutely intense. The beef has some marinade that's very strong and quite unique, it's not completely tender and has some chew which could be improved. However it's still very good. Kailan is masterfully charred

The complexity comes from layering different sauces and marinades and wtv despite being a dry version, and is really a restaurant style dish where things are cooked separately then served tgt

Ultimately, a unique dish that's well executed and overall impressive. There's good reason why they charge obscene prices yet still stand for so long, don't compare them to your normal tzechar

A few weeks ago, @heyrozz had organised lunch at this “zichar” place which, to my surprise, turned out to be in my parents’ neighbourhood of Siglap.
At first glance, the one-page menu at “Eat First” looks like it could be lacking but on closer inspection, it’s clear that there’s enough variety to please most people. The dishes they do are tasty but still manage to taste rather light and clean - a big reason why Roz enjoys the food here.
My favourite from that meal would be the Fried Kai Lan with Beef. The meat came in really big slices and were not over-tenderised. Plus they had a nice smokiness which added significantly to my enjoyment.
I liked the simplicity of the Minced Pork Steamed with Salted Fish too. It’s a humble dish but done well.
Annette’s favourite was the Beancurd with Prawns. Those were some fresh and large specimens of crustaceans we had. And the gravy they swum in, was eagerly spooned up by all to be poured over our rice.
I’m glad we ordered the Steamed Fish Head too. Dressed with “tau cheo”, spring onions and chilli, it was finished with loads of crunchy pork lard which in my personal opinion, is THE ingredient that makes or breaks this dish. The fish died a noble death as Roz, Willin and I stripped it completely clean.
When Willin and I heard they do Sweet & Sour Pork too, we immediately added an order of it. “Eat First” does theirs in an unexpectedly tangy sauce with meat on the chewy side.
If you like Black Chicken Herbal Soup, make sure to order theirs if it is available. Because it is not oily, you can sip the clear and nutritious broth easily.


Looking for the tastiest and meatiest sweet and sour pork? Look no further. This is the de facto sweet and sour pork.

Love all the dishes here and only very limited dishes available and they do it so well.
The fish head with fermented bean sauce, the crunch juicy sour pork, the generous tofu, my fav minced pork with salted fish.
The chicken is a bit of a let down and def not worth $25.
All these plus another kailan for $134!!!

Ps: The place was full after opening at 5.45 pm!


Definitely an old school style of steaming with lots of fried pork lard bits. Fresh fish head steamed with bean paste. Only setback is fish head gets cold fast because there’s no warmer. But eating it just out of the kitchen is really great. Tender meat with crunchy lard bits made the mouthful of fish belly tasty.
