Wanna enjoy some good Zi Char dishes while having a good view? Here is what I gonna share with you that I have recently tried!
.
George Town Tze Char & Craft Beer - situated at Boat Quay specialises in traditional Penang favourites and fresh seafood, headed by their award winning Chef - Chef George Tan from Ayer Hitam in George Town Penang...
.
What we have tried:
1) Penang Thai Style Squid
2) Crispy Pumpkin Prawn
3) Signature Thai Curry Fish Head
4) Kungfu Pork Ribs
5) Chilli Crab
.
My best pick would be their Signature Thai Curry Fish... they have used snapper - flesh were firm and smooth, taste of freshness well blended with the spices and chilli used for this dish... girls always we love Low carb diet but in this situation here was too hard to say no to white rice... I finished the whole damn bowl for this curry fish here... the next in line will be the chilli crab - their sauce was more towards the savoury end as compared to the regular ones that are on the sweeter side... The crab was really legit fresh and I had like a segment of it... but me being me... hated peeling crab so I gave up after that... but the owner was really kind and made us some soft shell crab for us to go with the sauce... the owner had also shared a lot of tips on wine/beer - alcohol pairing with steam fresh seafood that is very much appreciated... should I be visiting again I gonna get some steam ones to go along with their pairing recommendations...
.
They currently run a promotion for their Crabs (500gm) is going at $15 each - regular priced at $40... don’t miss this DAMN WORTH IT DEAL... 别让生活留白!!!

Streaked through with egg-drops, the chilli crab sauce was of the right consistency and richness, and contained the ideal balance between sweet and spicy. The crab has always been secondary to the sauce for me, and this sauce was definitely boss. All that was missing were some fluffy mantous to mop up that gravy.

And as if $28 wasn't a steal already, all their crabs are going for an insane price of $15(while stocks last) with any purchase!

A fantastic appetiser to pair with @georgetowntzechar craft beers, the squid rings are deep-fried to crunchy, golden perfection, yet manage to retain a tender bounciness. Drizzled with sweet chilli sauce, these are best eaten while fresh and piping hot.

Helmed by an award-winning chef from Penang with more than 20 years of experience under his belt, @georgetowntzechar dishes out very good renditions of wok classics, but it must be said their Thai Style Curry Fish Head made waves at our table.

Foremost, the sumptuous curry was a panoply of flavours, singing with a surfeit of herbs and spices such as lemongrass, tamarind, lime leaves, curry leaves and bird’s eye chillies. Almost assam-esque in taste, the sauce really set off the meaty fish head, but really I could devour just the curry with a bowlful of rice.

Unctuous and fatty, the meaty hunks are coated in a sweet and tangy caramelised sauce that boasts a fiery bite from birds eye chilli. The side of pickles temper the richness of the ribs with acidity and crunch and add some variation, but this is otherwise fairly one-note compared to some of the superb dishes here.

Paid a visit to George Town Tze Char and Craft Beer!

Lovely place along the Singapore river. Best to visit in the evening as it gets hot in the daytime.

💫 Signature thai curry fish head ($25+): really interesting take on the fish head curry! Slightly sourish and spicy. There is sweet pineapples in there which went well with the fresh fish!
💫 Penang Thai Style Squid ($15+): crispy fried squid and I quite like the sweet spicy sauce that was drizzled on it! Squid wasn't too rubbery.
💫 Homemade crispy prawn roll ($10+): my favourite order at tzechar stalls. This was good as well. Comes served with the typical sweet sauce for heizou. You can also request for the spicy sambal chilli sauce if you like things hot
