A branch of the popular eatery at Sim Lim Square, this newly opened zichar store was crowded even on a weekday night.

The sweet and sour fish was well-executed! The sauce was sweet but not too sticky, and the outer batter crispy, all while the fish inside remained flaky and tender.
Price: $12

A seemingly simple dish that is too often massacred, the sambal kangkong here didn't disappoint. Flavour was good and, most importantly, they retained their crunchiness after being cooked at high heat. I did however detect a few small sand grains that led to a few crunchy bites.

Price: $8

I can see why their salted egg dishes are popular. The sauce is creamy and yolky, without the granular texture that sometimes accompanies. The batter is crispy but not overly thick. Yummy!

Price: $10

Requested for no chilli, and the chef was able to accommodate and cooked this version with salted fish instead. Love that they're able to retain the crunch of the kangkong, unlike many places that serve it overcooked.

Price: $11 for large

A nice zichar we found in Pasir Ris Park. Very reasonable prices and delicious food. The blacl bean sauce was very flavourful and I was happy to see they used fish fillet chunks instead of really thinly sliced fish.

Price: $10

Was expecting this to be fried chicken in sweet-and-sour sauce/ sweet thai chilli sauce, but the sauce rather resembled chilli crab sauce! I was surprised and yet delighted. A yummy chilli crab chicken 😋

Price: $10

Not usually a fan of crispy egg noodles cuz they get soggy real fast and always have barely any ingredients, but this one was not bad! It came with a generous portion of noodles and some seafood like fish, squid, fishcake and prawns.

Price: $5

They offer quick and filling zichar meals here. The beef fried rice has wok hei. Don't let its appearance fool you - there was a generous amount of beef underneath. Definitely had more ingredients than expected.

Price: $6
