Pictured is the grilled small sea bass simmering in a Sichuan green pepper broth that is fit to share between 2 people. The meat was beautifully tender and fresh, and the Sichuan green pepper broth gave a numbing kick to it. I didn’t think it was too spicy and could have afforded for it to be even spicier, but the sourness from the broth was definitely appetising. This portion of fish is perfect, especially when you can add more ingredients to the grill, just like steamboat! To top up ingredients requires added cost though, and the other ingredients may be much pricier than elsewhere. That being said, very efficient and polite service and I highly recommend this if you’re around the area!


Cajun Chicken (S$9)
Thigh version, served with 2 sides which selected Cajun Fries and Louisiana Gumbo

Waiting time quite long.

Charredlicious meat over a bed of steaming pearl rice, adorned with furikake, cherry tomatoes, onsen egg, spring onions, and drizzled with creamy dashi garlic sauce for extra flavouring. The beef, was cooked to medium rare as requested, and was elegantly soy glazed. The pork cheek was both firm and tender, and each meat serving was about 60g.
While it may lean slightly towards the expensive side, the quality and presentation undoubtedly justify the price.

Arrived at 12.45pm. Not much of a lunch crowd to speak of. Ordered 2 signature noodles (1 mee pok and 1 mee kia) dry with chilli and extra vinegar. Plus a plate of fish cakes.

The noodles were ready within 5 minutes. Both types of noodles were cooked to perfection. The accompanying soup was a little too salty. The small portion does not come with prawns ($6) whereas the mid sized bowl ($7) has two prawns which were very fresh with crunchy meat.

Inside each bowl were two fishballs, pieces of pork and sliced fish cake. The chilli sauce was a bit weak in my opinion.

Beside mee pok they also offer seafood soup, sliced fish soup, Laksa, mee hoon kway and toasted bread/soft boiled eggs for breakfast. A one stop shop for comfort food.

Be aware that parking can be a problem at peak hours and public transport is not very convenient in this old landed private housing estate.

the hokkien prawn noodles ($15 - large) were the wet kind of hokkien mee which i prefer😋😋

the char siew was super caramlised which i loved!! but everything else was not that great

Technically not wrong, elevated name for hashbrowns… expected some German rosti - as claimed in the lunch menu.
Succulent and juicy chicken thighs with crispy charred skin.

Burpple - you’re only allowed to order from a strict selection of 4 mains and you are not allowed to choose two different selections to try out the restaurant, forced to choose the same dish..
above reviews are no longer valid - no more 1 for 1 steak.
Came all the way to a steak house and made to pay full price for steak.

Serving zi char fare at Simpang Bedok, Hong Kong Street Family restaurant is a good option if you’re craving Chinese food, from simple dishes like fried rice to set meals for your family dinners. The fried beef hor fun in bean sauce was so flavourful, with a superb wok hei fragrance and taste to it. The staff were efficient, friendly, and the menu was overall very affordable priced.


Big sized grilled fish; meat is fresh & tender; opted for more spicy but not spicy enough for my tastebud; came with red onions & potato slices; sauce is flavorful & surprisingly less salty..

Generous portion of chilled & tender meat sat on top of crunchy & juicy cucumber; topped with garlic, sesame seeds, spring onions, peanuts & chilli oil; appetizing & best for sharing..
