We ordered three dishes, marmite pork, hot plate beancurd and trio egg with spinach soup. The only dish that is worth order is the marmite pork. It is very flavorful. The hot plate beancurd with quite a disappointment as the hot plate was not heated sufficiently and the dish was just sitting on slightly uncooked egg sitting at the bottom of the plate. The soup is decent but nothing to shout about.

Overall an average causal dinning place. Not something worth specially heading down for, but if you want to get some food to fill your tummy when you are nearby, it is a place that you can consider. (Oh, they serve their dishes really fast!)

Lovely zhi-char...another popular dish is the deep fried toufu. Will be back for more of their other dishes like fish head curry. Lots of signature dish to try.


[Kallang Estate Food Centre] Found this hidden gem located near the Old Airport Road Food Centre. San Tong Steamed Soup & Delicious Seafood serves the lunch and dinner crowd but be prepared to wait for your food as it gets very crowded especially during lunch hours. The lady boss even told us to call her in advanced to place your orders if not you will not have a chance to eat. Manned by a lovely couple, the uncle prepares the food while the auntie takes the orders. Fortunately, I went there during the night for dinner and didn't have to wait too long. The dishes on the table include a steamed fish tail, sweet and sour pork, fried kai lan and salted fish fried rice, all the usual stuff you can get in a zhi char stall. What sets them apart is the uber fresh fish and quality pork slices that are coated thinly with a batter. The usual sweet and sour pork you get outside contains lots of starch and fats, but what you get here is the real deal. Additionally, all these are cooked with passion and flavours that you can associate with home-cooked meals.


family dinner and we just had to drive all the way from jurong to old airport road for this zi char place. ask for their signature deep fried tofu and be blown away how restaurant-pretty this is. very generous serving for 8 here and did i say it taste extremely good as well!

A change in Old Airport Rd Food Ctr. The cold crabby is meaty & the roe is super creamy. Price is good. They oso hv cold prawns, oysters & BBQ crabs.
