Having grown to 4 outlets across Singapore (in Tampines, Bedok, Ang Mo Kio, Chai Chee), Jin Hock Seafood Restaurant still remains a hidden find for those in the know.
.
Chef-Owner Yap Yew Hock has elevated heartland Chinese Zi Char to restaurant quality, and attracted a loyal following. He's known for serving consistently tasty and affordable dishes.
.
Despite the simple name, this plate of rice vermicelli noodles has a generous amount of ingredients.
.
It's stir-fried with eggs, dark soy sauce, spanish mackerel fish slices, pork loin slices, fresh prawns / shrimp, bean sprouts, and garnished with lettuce and a wedge of lime.
.
The contrasting crunch of lettuce against the tender ingredients, the bold savoury sweet salty flavours, and the smoky aroma of wok hei / breath of the wok, combine to make this delicious.

This has a crispy, moist texture to the pork loin, and good savoury salty flavour enhanced with the herbal spicy notes of garlic.
.
The garlic cloves can be eaten, and aren't too pungent, lending a wonderful aroma to the dish.

What sorcery is this!? The Milky Fried Abalone Mushrooms are an ingenious creation.
.
With thinly sliced abalone mushrooms coated in Carnation evaporated milk, curry leaves, and other secret ingredients, then stir-fried. It tastes... like Twisties. Like curry flavoured twisties, but better.
.
Slightly crisp in texture, with beautiful notes of savoury spicy salty. My gosh, this is so good. 9/10 if I didn't mention some of it, you'd be hard pressed to guess the ingredients. Highly recommended.

Chef's signature dish, with thin rice vermicelli in a thick seafood gravy, garnished with sliced pork loin, chye sim / choy sum / Chinese flowering cabbage, prawns / shrimp, egg, and pork lard.
.
Beautifully savoury sweet in flavour, with the delicate sweetness of seafood. Nice and easy to slurp up, pairs well with the fried dishes here.

Chef's signature dish. Features a medium sized, fresh red grouper fish, liberally garnished with super crisp cai poh / preserved radish bits that have a savoury salty sweet flavour.
.
The fish itself has a tender, flaky texture, the sweet savoury fish meat coming easily off the large bones. The salty herbal spicy sauce of light soy sauce, carrots, chili, and parsley, lend good depth of flavour, complementing the freshness of the fish.

Chef's signature dish. Featuring chunks of pork rib with cartilage, coated in a sticky aromatic glaze of coffee and sugar.
.
When stir-fried, this causes the sauce to cling to the meat, lending a depth of smoky sweet savoury toasty flavour to the tender and moist pork ribs, which have a slippery and unctuous texture.
.
Bits of almond garnish lend crunch and a slight nutty flavour. Delicious.

This popular heartland Chinese Zi Char stall with 4 outlets across Singapore is known for its consistently tasty and affordable dishes.
.
This dish has a richer, thicker texture than other versions elsewhere, and they're slightly more generous with the portion of egg, salted egg, and century egg used.
.
The spinach leaves are nicely soft and tender, and you can drink the gravy as a soup / broth. The eggy vegetal sweet savoury flavours of this dish is hearty and comforting.

Completely yummy, so unlike the base vegetable in taste.
.
Totally lacking in the bitter flavour of the vegetable, the bitter gourd is nearly vegetal sweet, coated in a thin and crisp layer of salted egg yolk. Sprinkling of crisp anchovy fish lends crunch.
.
Primary flavour profile is savoury salty, with a hint of spicy from the curry leaves. This will appeal to most.

This hearty soup is enjoyable, despite its mid-range price.
.
Properly thick, warm, and comforting, the savoury sweet flavours of the seafood and crab stock makes this soup / broth really satisfiying.
.
Garnished with plenty of eggs, deshelled crab meat, and spongy fish maw.
.
I like this with a dash of black vinegar and white pepper.

The most refreshing, coolest orange juice around.
.
Fresh squeezed through their smart vending machines.
.
5/5 would drink every weekday, except when it runs out, then I sad.

.
This award-winning Finnish vodka is produced in one of the world's northernmost distilleries, using the cleanest groundwater on Earth.
.
Good enough to be consumed straight, the ice-cold glacial meltwaters of Lake Hirsijarvi are a naturally soft mineral water, having been filtered through esker and thick sand layers.
.
Combined with neutral ethyl alcohol distilled 7 times from high quality, non-GMO wheat from family-owned farms (which means it's gluten-free), then blended in a sterile stainless steel tank, and matured for 4 weeks or more.
.
The result; an incredibly smooth, pure, and refreshing texture to the vodka, with a softness unlike any other. Has a light wheaty sweet flavour.
.
They also use natural flavourings for their other versions - lingonberry, cloudberry, bilberry, or espresso!.
.
The bottle is clear, frosty, and beautifully decorated, with a touch of real 24k gold. I hear this vodka is even better with a drop of pure honey.
.
Getting over the hump!.
