This isn’t a flattened chicken - it’s fish paste / fish cake and covered with the crispy fried chicken skin.

Kok Sen is closed for 2 weeks from 1 March 2021 for renovations. So we braved the Friday dinner crowd for its Tze char fare. This claypot dish was one of their signatures, and we saw it on every table around us! They use fish/sotong paste to fill their vegetables (chilli, capsicum and brinjal) and stuff their tau pok. Being a more Hakka YTF kinda guy, it lacked the meaty bite of minced pork for me. The 汁sorta compensates as it definitely adds to the umami! Overall Kok Sen is the cheapest thing to eat along Keong Saik, but it‘s a little pricier for Tze Char.

Made the mistake of coming here on 元宵节. We queued a whopping 1.5hrs long as they didn’t take reservations! 😭 The food was good, but not great enough to repeat the long wait. This crispy roast chicken comes with pepper salt and homemade chilli 🌶 a real blast to the Chinese wedding dinners of yonder years. Skin’s crisp but not oily, meat’s tender but not too dry. Better than your usual chicken rice fare.

Surprised that they open at first day of CNY and still have an empty table. So change mind in a split second 🤣.
I ordered 4 dishes, and From 4 of them, I enjoyed the Big Prawn Hor Fun the most.
The hor fun gravy was tasty from prawn broth base , the prawns fresh and big and it has wok hei.
💰$20 /small.

8.5/10

Intense prawn flavour with good wok hei. A bit in the salty side but in a good way.

Another must order is the Yong tai foo. Goes well with rice.

The prawn paste chicken is average at best. There are better dishes to order here.

Ordered via oddle eats as usual nicely packed and on time delivery. Food still hot when received. I find the big prawn bee hoon soup too heavy and spicy. Not to my liking. Still prefer the traditional prawn mee soup. I liked the gravy of the claypot yong tau foo. Accompany with a bowl of white rice, good ~😋
