Was in the area and remember seeing a number for posts about this zi char place and their egg hor fun! We got the medium portion, but they do have the small at $6 and large at $15. The portion feels a little smaller than normal medium sizes, but we enjoyed it! Wok hei was pretty strong and ingredients were fresh. Lots of tasty and eggy zhup to go along.

Ordered a variety from this zi char spot via Deliveroo - Salted Egg Sotong($20 for M), Prawn Paste Chicken ($20 for M), Signature Beancurd ($18 for M), French Bean with Shrimp Paste ($12 for S), Sambal Kang Kong ($10 for S) along with some carbs. Nothing to complain about, all we had were good and seasoned nicely.

Among their outlets, Kei Kaisendon’s spot in Marina Square is tucked in a cozy corner just opposite Putien. They serve up a variety of kaisendons, with toppings like unagi, hotate, and ebi mentaiyaki. There’s a range of sides as well, on top of options to top up your bowls to sets. We liked the ebi mentaiyaki which were fresh, but the tuna cubes were a little too mushy. Marinate was the light sort with a mix of salmon, tuna and swordfish. Portion of rice could be bigger.

Thank you Sherry and @keikaisendon.sg for the kind invite! ✨

Other than the Ebi Mentaiyaki Kaisendon ($19.90), we got to try the kaisendon with their hotate. Similarly, we liked the hotate more than the sashimi cubes. They were plump and fresh, marinated lightly which retained its original sweetness. Would be nice to have slightly more rice and less cucumbers in the mix.

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!

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!

Thank you for having us @yishikitchen.sg! ✨

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!
