Zhup Zhup is only a few minutes' walk from Tai Seng MRT, and there weren't many people by the time we arrived. Although, the queue started to build up after we began eating.

We got the Supreme Prawn Noodle, Claypot Hokkien Mee, and the Ngoh Hiang tasting platter for 2. The broth was thick and sweet, richer than other prawn noodle places I usually eat at. And if there's one thing I can say about their portion size, it's that it's incredibly big. Soaked in the broth are a wide variety of ingredients that added to the dish: prawns, prawn balls, clams, shabu shabu, and pork ribs. I very much enjoyed the tobiko prawn balls, very clearly handmade but also tastes incredibly unique. The Hokkien Mee was very different from what I anticipated, in a good way! It certainly had the flavour of the broth, setting it apart from other local Hokkien Mee.

The ngoh hiang were very flavourful, very reminiscent of the ngoh hiang that I know and love. The prawn cracker was also crispy and went well with the sauce. I also loved the sotong youtiao and the seafood roll as well!

All in all, would come back when I'm craving prawn mee or hokkien mee. Maybe I could try the paofan next time!

Had the Treasure Trove gift set from Joo Chiat Kim Choo! There were 8 rice dumplings in total, with 4 Nyonya and 4 Hokkien, as well as 5 sweet bean and 5 green tea ang ku kueh.

The Nyonya rice dumplings were chock full of meat, and they served for a really filling meal. The Hokkien rice dumplings' fillings were wide in variety, with braised pork belly, mushrooms, and the salted egg yolk added an extra hint of flavour to it. The ang ku kueh were not too sweet as well, and the texture was just like mochi!

Would highly recommend their rice dumplings, and it's great for sharing, especially since each dumpling can definitely fill you up. I'm definitely trying out some of their other dumplings as well with my friends.
