Zichar (~$15/pax)
⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️
🍴Back to one of our favourite #zichar places. The food is affordable and delicious while being as healthy as zichar can get. Their steamed fish (price varies by type/size and ours was $60) never fails to be well-executed, with perfectly timed tender and fresh meat. We also love their array of sides and our usual orders include their chewy and homemade fish cake, bittergourd with egg, and #haebeehiam (dried shrimp sambal).

Satay ($6.50/5pc)
Mee Goreng ($15)
Fish head curry ($36)
Overall ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
🍴The #satay at this outlet was executed really well (better than the last we had from chijmes) with a delicious char and tender meat paired with a flavour and thick satay sauce. Loved the balance of peanuts with what I think was pineapple that gave a slight sourness and nice tang. The #fishheadcurry was quite light in flavour and lacking fish aroma. Although there was quite a lot of vegetables, there was only a small portion of fish which couldn’t quite justify the price paid. We did enjoy the #meegoreng that was nicely fried to have good texture and wokhei.

Won't recommend getting this dish. It was subpar compared to all their other good dishes from new ubin. The mussels were a bit too small and the flavour of the sauce did not soak in. Bread was given to dip in the sauce but it was meh ⭐️ 2.5/5 ⭐️

The batter was fragrant, but not overly so (which is a good thing), and there is a subtle spicy kick in the aftertaste that makes it all the more delicious. Rated only 3.5 stars because the batter whilst fragrant was fried a little too much; it was a little too crispy, almost borderlining a cracker. Some might also prefer a richer salted egg flavour. 📍Cafe 566 (its actually a zichar restaurant)
566 Woodlands Rd, S728697

⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️ 🍴Been coming here very often & since it's starting days but never posted about it. Their famed beef is as good as ever - juicy and crispy on the top - and paired well with caramelized onions, potato wedges & special rice fried with beef lard.
⚠️ Called new ubin SEAFOOD but best known for their classic zichar dishes like boss beehoon, mee goreng and shrimp paste chicken so best to order these > seafood
📍New Ubin Seafood, 63 Hillview Avenue, S669569

A good dish! The fish skin was crispy and the salted egg was done right.There was just the right mix of flavour from the fish & salted egg such that neither overpowered each other ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
