Out of all their dishes, I found their signature Crispy Deep Fried Chicken ($18 for Half) which is essentially crispy roast chicken to be far too dry. While it was not too oily and its skin lived up to its name, I would go for more affordable, tender and juicy ones found at hawker centres instead. I really like this stall! https://www.burpple.com/f/eCk9jDH9

Overall, my first visit was spectacular enough to warrant a second visit. With outstanding service, divine food and reasonable prices for the quality offered, apart from having a nicer dining environment and being able to enjoy their food for free, I can’t see how it can get any better. Unfortunately, I saw how it got worse. Experiencing a price hike and tasting their more mediocre dishes on my second visit, I can’t say that there will be a third visit anytime soon.
Price: 5/10
Food: 8.5/10 (Huge variety of dishes done right)
Ambience: 5/10 (This is for the location situated basically on a sidewalk)
Service: 8/10
Overall: 6/10 (Worth a try for first-timers)

If I had to pick 1 dish, it would be their Champagne Long Ribs ($11 per piece) for its uniqueness and of course, taste. Their glaze was thick, sweet, gooey and just all around delicious though my tastebuds were not refined enough to pick up any hint of Champagne. There’s also something about biting into a huge chunk of meat that brings a bout of sheer euphoria and satisfaction. The consistency of the dish may vary slightly though as the piece I had on my first visit was much tougher than my second.

Still, 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

青龙菜 tastes like a cross breed between chives and spring onions. Homemade Tofu was good but the green vege was still a tad raw and the sea cucumber taste was still a bit strong if you ate it. The small corn and squid in the Hor Fun were a bit fishy but the Hor Fun itself was sufficiently flavourful. Fried Rice was a tad tasteless and the rice was a bit too hard. Don't like Yu Sheng in general, but this one was still okay. The food not bad, although have to issue MSG alert.

The infamous Por Kee champagne pork ribs!

The champagne pork short ribs [S$22 pictured/33/44++] have a beautiful glaze - a mix of sweet and salty. Though the meat isn't "fall-off-the-bone" tender, it's still really easy to bite and chew. Just having this with white rice is perfect.

This zi char restaurant sells great food but be wary of the price and portions. It feels more like a tourist trap in Tiong Bahru.

The star dish of the dinner has got to be the the steamed Soon Hock, cooked lightly Teochew style so you can taste the freshness of the fish. The meat was tender yet firm and the broth was really flavourful! I'll also recommend the Champagne short ribs and Homemade Tofu with sea cucumber. 👍🏻😊

Karen u can't just ask why this dish is dark. Champagne ribs ($18 for small I think?) - since we chanced upon this zichar I frantically googled for the popular dishes and all I saw were champagne ribs and chilli crab. Kinda bummed about not ordering the chilli crabs because dang those mantous looked so crispy 😩

Anyway.
These ribs though. They were life changing ribs I tell ya!!!!!! The sauce were sweet and sticky but not too sweet and were also kinda salty and the ribs even though they were super thick (like me thighs) they were very very tender (I don't know if they're like my thighs) although it wasn't falling off the bone type of tender. But finger lickin gud although I was already bursting by then.
Tad expensive for 4 pieces of ribs but for a life changing experience?? Worth it. (Ok also because I didn't have to pay for it hahahah)
