It seems Whathefish has recently moved from its former location to the new Vision Exchange building at Jurong East. This is awesome news for people who stay in the west like me! Being my first time there, I decided to order the classic cod fish & chips, plus an upgrade for truffle fries.

When my order came, I was delighted to be hit with that familiar truffle fragrance. The fries though average, were crispy and fully coated with the delicious goodness. As for the star of the dish, the fish was fresh and retained the right level of tender-firm texture. Crispy, thin batter on the outside paired with delicate cod and some creamy tartar sauce, it was a very enjoyable meal! The dish was also served with a side of salad tossed in tangy balsamic vinegar dressing to help refresh your palate. The only thing I would say was missing was a wedge of lemon for that extra zest. But for generous portions at $10.50 with no additional GST and service charge, it is definitely value for money that will make me come back for more! Another good thing is that the place also comes with air conditioning.

Very generous with the clams but their pasta is done in an aglio olio style. I would've preferred more of a saucy white wine pasta. But it's acceptable for its price ($12).

Im sorry the flash hid the char on the meat but wow this was really close to perfection. Outside was still crispy from pan frying and juicy inside. Would be flawless if it was just a tad more tender. The shallot confit helped to cut thru the richness while adding umami

Highly recommended this Penang Char Kway Tao! Traditional CKT with pork lard added 😋 The Penang Laksa [$3.50] is nice too but still prefer CKT.

All prices are NETT.

So we actually came across reviews by fellow Burpplers on this oyster omelette at Kai Xiang that led us salivating, thus the decision to validate it tonight.

Indeed, when the omelette was served, I was astounded by the juicy, plump oysters that were laid on top of the omelette. Can't even wait to finishing counting how many oysters there were and I started the attack. The oysters were fresh, and bursts outrightly when bitten. Some oysters have a dirty taste when they aren't that fresh, but the ones here are a little creamy and briny. Not overly fishy too.

The omelette was fried purely using eggs and there was no starch added. I actually prefer to eat this without starch because I feel that the gooeyness of starch sometimes affects the texture and flavour of the dish overall. The omelette was minimally greasy but instead pretty fluffy, and not soggy like some that could absorb water from the oysters.

I would be more than willing to pay this price for an oyster omelette like this, than for those that costs around half of this price but what you get is an omelette with tiny oysters. It's definitely a hidden gem!

For $4 bucks, you can get a large chicken drum stick and huge portion crispy pork! Typical noodles Hong Kong noodles was delicious too! Xoxo, wet tissue no have
