Made from rice flour and served with orange sugar, this fresh, buttery, fermented rice pancake with crispy edges and thick, spongy centre really wowed me.

This is such a treat!

One of my favourite sliced fish soups. Love the thick slices of fresh fish and the absolutely yummy soup!

Usually, the queue is long on weekdays. While the queue is Long, the food is totally worth the queue. Anyway, because of the long queue, this stall doesn’t allow customers to takeaway. They used to allow people to choose ‘black’ (fried), ‘white’ or mixed, but now, it is only the mixed version.

They usually use ‘Batang’ fish (马鲛鱼/ Tengiri). But when supply is low/ prices are high, they will substitute with another type of fish... like the one In the photograph (aka Sheng Yu). But they will try to give you more slices if that’s the case as the price of Sheng Yu is half the price of Batang.

In the past, they would be sold out by 1 plus in the afternoon. Now, you probably still stand a chance at 2pm.

I went on a weekday afternoon. This shop is tucked away in a quiet corner/ end of the food centre.

There was no queue, unlike the roving Pasar Malan oyster cake stall.

Also, here, the oil used is clean, unlike the other 2 oyster cake stalls; dark oil, sometimes the colour of Kopi O.

Very crispy on the outside, yet soft on the inside. There are prawns, oysters, minced meat/ pork, and plenty of coriander. Usually I don’t like coriander, but taste is still pretty agreeable (not so strong that it is overwhelming). Worth adding ingredients! This oyster cake is bursting with ‘Liao’ (aka ingredients).

A delightful treat!

There are some parallel parking lots right outside the coffeeshop. But it is not easy to get an empty lot there. It is advisable to park nearby and walk over to the coffeeshop instead.

It doesn’t matter how long the queue. The Hokkien mee is fried in batches. If you happened to join the end of the queue just as the boss is almost done with the mee, congrats! The wait is short.

This must be the best Hokkien mee I have tasted thus far. I’m not sure if it is because of the charcoal used to fry the mee, but that ‘wok-hei!’

OMG!😱

I was blown away at my first mouthful! 🤯

That wok hei! I am repeating myself... is really... mind blowing.

At $8, this is not expensive. I did not dig out all the prawns before I took the photograph. There were 4 big, meaty prawns. Not the most expensive top quality type but nevertheless, very good quality, fresh prawns. The squid slices are thick (not the paper thin type) and fresh as well. This is well worth $8.

$8 is just nice for my mom and me. We have very average appetites.

The Kwong Satay there is pretty nice as well. I like their satay/ gravy and ketupat (not the instant, boiled in plastic bags type). Skip the Orh Luak though. Anyway, I digress.

If you like Hainan Fried Hokkien Mee at Beach Rd Army Market; its wok hei and the richness of its mee, then you HAVE got to come here. You will be mind blown 🤯 by this.

I am so coming back again for this.

Finally! The stall was closed for the whole of Ramadan/ Hari Raya period.

There is usually a short queue on weekends, but it moves fast.

One reason I like this stall is because they make your order fresh. I really don’t like being served thosai that has been lying around for a while/ cold.

While this may not be like MTR type of (crispy) dosa, I still like this type of thosai with orange sugar- fresh, humble, cheap & nice!

Ordered my food at almost 5 in the evening.

The dishes were all piping hot, and they were all very delicious.

I had 2 meat and 2 vegetable dishes for $5. I ordered cabbage, curry chicken drumstick, stir fried sliced potatoes and fried chicken (pieces) coated with a very savoury sauce.

My favourite is the fried chicken with the savoury sauce. Amazing dish!

There will be a queue from time to time. However, on a weekday evening, one can find table/ seat without too much difficulty, esp after they expanded by buying over the shop next door.

Parking is slightly inconvenient though.

Pricing is very reasonable.
My hub ordered cabbage, chicken chop, braised tau pok, and fish cake.
I had cabbage (asked for extra serving), chicken chop, and a fried egg.
Total cost:$8.90

The food was absolutely delicious! Love it when my plate of rice is saturated with gravy; both the braised sauce and the curry! This is the first curry rice I have tried many years back and until today, is still my favourite curry rice. How can a plate of something look this messy and yet taste so good?!

My only grouse is that the food on display are all not labelled. It can be a bit difficult to decipher what the fried items/ dishes are.

There wasn't really a crowd or queue when I went at 5 plus in the evening on a weekday. I reckoned the price of this dish should be about $5 or $6, but I'm not too sure because I'm not the one who placed the order.

This salted egg yolk fish skin dish from a humble zi char stall is way ahead of the majority of its competitors (definitely not one of the run-off-the-mill ones).

It doesn't lose out to the biggest names when it comes to salted egg yolk (fish skin)... You can really taste the well-balanced flavour of the salted egg yolk.

I find the majority of salted egg yolk (fish skin) too sweet, lacked enough salted egg yolk flavour, or/ and not crispy enough.

The fish skin was thin (enough), crispy, crunchy, but not hard. Not only can you taste the egg yolk, but also the fish skin as well.

Salted egg yolk (sauce) that is too sweet puts me off immediately.

This is one very good dish of the salted egg yolk with a good balance of flavours.

If you want to avoid queuing for a long time, best to go really early or/and avoid lunch hour.

For only $4, you get handmade curly mee, 2pcs of tender braised pork ribs, 2 boiled wantons, 1 Chinese dumpling (水饺), 1 fried wanton, char siew and green veggies.

I read that the mee is the highlight here; it is done with egg whites, and it is also alkaline-free. However, the mee wasn't al dente, bite could have been better; a tad overcooked.

Went on a Monday afternoon. No queue, but many stalls were not opened for business. Not sure if most of them chose Mon as their off day.

The thick, black treacle (aka the gula melaka) is ultra shiok! It is more viscous than other Gula melaka I have tried before and it really elevates this chendol above others. There is a subtle tinge of smokiness from the palm sugar but it is not overly sweet. In fact, I find it refreshing and light.

The shaved ice was rather compacted and kinda of hard.

The silky soft green worms with coconut milk is subtly salty to contrast with the sweet taste of chendol.

There are additional toppings like sweetened red beans and attap-chee (aka seeds) that provides more bite to the delightful dessert!

This must be the best char siew rice I have tried thus far in my life. The roast pork is also very good.

The char siew/ roast pork are slightly fatty, but very moist, tender, and flavoursome. Not overly salty. The crackling of the roast pork was crispy too. Both meats were slightly fatty, but the fats were a good trade-off for the moist, tender meats. Can easily remove them if you mind.. Has a sufficient amount of charred bits which are so fragrant and savoury.
Char Siew actually has a good balance of sweetness and savouriness.

The sambal-like chilli is also very good too. Complements the meats very well though they are good enough to eat them on their own.

This is a one dish that makes gg (back) to ABC Brickworks Food Center well worth it!!!

No queue on a weekday evening. This stall uses a wireless paging system. So, even if there's a queue, you don't have to stand there physically.

My hub tried the skewers said they are good and are worth every cent!
