This was an interesting one! Slices of fried boneless pork ribs topped with a hot-cold combi of apple sauce and vanilla ice cream. Yes, ikr, ice cream?! Though overall it was a tad too sweet for us, it surprisingly worked out pretty decently, for the tart sauce to be balanced out with a creamy and sweet element. Apart from the tender pork ribs, you can opt for a chicken version too!

Thank you @yishikitchen.sg for having us! ✨

One of our favourites from lunch at Yi Shi, their handmade tofu was fried crispy and still retained soft and smooth inside. It looked simple with a light soy sauce and a generous topping of crunchy fried preserved turnip, but was very addictive without being overly salty. Will order this again in future!

Yi Shi Kitchen is tucked in Yishun’s A’Posh Bizhub - a little far out for us, but the affordably priced dishes and spacious dining area makes for a great zi char meal! The favs of our lunch were the Homemade Tofu with Preserved Turnip, Nonya Fish and the good ol’ zi char classic, Har Cheong Gai. Thumbs up too to the chefs who continuously strive to innovate new dishes. We tried their Apple Champagne Pork Ribs: fried pork ribs topped with a hot-cold combi of apple sauce and vanilla ice cream (yes, ikr?!) - was a tad sweet but surprisingly worked out pretty well!

Deep fried egg with basil, crispy golden mushrooms and sweet soy! Liked the subtle basil fragrance but would have been better if the dish was more consistently seasoned and a little less oily. Portion’s quite big so it’s best as a >3 pax sharing dish!

Everybody’s favourite to-go zi char dish and Yi Shi Kitchen did theirs very well - each piece was crispy and seasoned nicely without being too salty. Three of us wiped this clean easily!

Brinjal, long beans, petai and lady finger stir-fried in a homemade sambal chilli paste that was flavourful but not too spicy. Loved the generous addition of crispy ikan bilis!

Leaning more to the fatty side, these slices of pork cheek were grilled to a light smokiness. Well-balanced with the tangy homemade sauce!

Unassuming name, looks and ingredients but was so addictive that we got another plate. 😂 Good wok hei with just the right balance of savoury and sweet. A tad bit pricey though.

Kai Xiang’s signature fried eggs with oysters is pricier than the usuals at $10 for just the smallest portion, but it’s bound to impress - look at them plump oysters!! There were 17 of them & yes, I counted HAHAHA. Unlike the more common starchy oyster omelettes, they only serve this full-eggs version. The omelette had nice crispy edges and was well seasoned, while the oysters were creamy and briny. It’s a great side for sharing! It’s also available at $14 and $18 for the medium and large portions.

Actually ordered their Anchovies Fried Rice but was served this instead. It was a decent plate in a sizeable portion, though a teeny bit under seasoned. Bigger portions are available at $8 and $12.

Loved the crispy skin and juicy meat, but it wasn’t as strong in its prawn paste flavour. It’s also available in bigger portions at $14 and $18!

Got to say we were pretty impressed, especially since it was a food delivery and we didn’t tuck in immediately! Had the Lemongrass Pork Ribs 香茅排骨 ($18.80/$28.80), Stone Pot Wine Lala 石锅黄酒啦啦 ($18.80/$28.80) and Xin Long Xing Prawn Cake 新龙兴虾饼 ($15.80) - our preferred picks are the first two!

Thank you @xinlongxingsg for this! 🙆🏻‍♀️
