Alexandra’s favourite zi char restaurant, Keng Eng Kee Seafood, has opened an outlet in Pandan Gardens. While the restaurant might be a little too far West for your friends (it’s a 20-minute bus ride from Jurong East MRT Station), the well-executed, tasty food and ample seating space is enough to warrant a second visit. Wrangle a group to sit at a giant round table and over the signature Moonlight Hor Fun (from $6), tasty Marmite Chicken (from $10) and the crowd favourite Coffee Pork Ribs (from $15) to share. Those a little more adventurous can try the Wok Hei Burgers ($9) with locally inspired flavours like Salted Egg Chicken, Sambal Beef and Coffee Pork Burger. All burger sets come with fries on the side and a drink. Pro tip: It gets crowded on weekends so make reservations beforehand!
Avg price: $15 per person
