From the Burpple community

We were drawn here to its fried Horfun but it was sold out around 7pm last night, perhaps due to them keeping lower stock on Sundays we heard from a regular customer of theirs.
We tried their fried Beehoon which was another of their popular dishes. It had a nostalgic taste, though we won’t the Beehoon was outstandingly good. The fragrant crispy pork lard compensated well for its lack of Wok Hei though.
Their prawn paste chicken was good, crispy and juicy without being oily. And it was flavoured well without being overly salty too.
It was comfort food overall, for those familiar with their flavours or those who’d want a simple Tze Char meal, nothing to shout out loud about, but just in a quiet corner of TPY.

Good zichar in a coffeeshop. The sliced fish wan tan hor has great wok hei. The hae cho (prawn roll) and har cheong gai (prawn paste chicken)are good too.

The Prawn Paste Chicken aka Har Cheong Gai is the dish that gave me a sense of hope for this overrated place. Light and crispy, it is not salty but still has the flavour of the prawn paste intact.

The affordable price makes up for the taste so don’t set high expectations. This Zi Char place seems to be popular in Toa Payoh but it didn’t strike a chord in me.


Situated in a coffee shop just opposite Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) headquarters, Hong Sheng Restaurant is a Zi Char place that serves Cantonese Style comfort food since the early 70s.

The dishes come in adequate portions for sharing among groups and operates from 5 pm to 10.30pm daily. Do not expect much ambience and expect to wait for a table. They serve their food quick but unfortunately with a poor attitude which makes the dining experience less enjoyable. Alright, let’s talk about the food.

One of their signature dishes is their Claypot Grouper Fish Head. It comes piping hot in a large clay pot. It consists of vegetables, yam, tofu, and pork belly. Flavour wise it doesn’t taste as promising as it looks as the gravy was too salty for my liking and a little fishy.


Only open from 5-10pm, this 45 year old zi char restaurant is known for its low prices and hearty homestyle dishes. Occupying the entire coffeeshop come dinnertime, be prepared to wait for your dishes as the space fills up. The signature dishes include Claypot Grouper Fish Head with Vegetables, and the Stir Fried Prawns and Asparagus.

Yummy pork rib king! The flavour is just nice and the meat is tender. Be prepared for a 30 mins wait though!
