Need to share this other dish that we enjoyed here - the “Chye Por Neng” or Omelette with Salted and Dried Radish. It‘s huge, thick-ish and fluffy and fragrant. The preserved radish mixed in there had a good crunch and wasn’t too salty. Ratio of it to egg was also spot-on.

Although we had already paired the other dishes with a bowl of steamed rice each, I wasn’t going to let us leave without trying Shao’s “Vegetable Hor Fun”.
It turned out to be better than any of us expected. The moment it landed on the table, salivary glands were triggered. My first chopstick-full confirmed the noodles’ tastiness. Masterfully fried with just soya sauce and bits of chopped up “kai lan”, it dazzled with an intense “wok hei”. In short, a seemingly simple but very, very tasty dish that’s worth a try.

My parents and I were bowled over by this Red Grouper Claypot Teochew Style. Apart from it being really generous in serving for a small-sized order, the simmering broth was extraordinarily appetising thanks to the addition of several “sng buay” (sour plums). It was also chockfull of thickly-sliced grouper (other types of fish are also available), “tau kee” (dried beancurd skin), “tau hu” (soft beancurd), Chinese cabbage and tomatoes.
Best thing to enjoy this with? A bowl of steaming hot rice. Mmmmmm...

I was wondering why @shaobbq’s signature Squid Ink Sausage tasted even better than ever today. Then I learned that they changed suppliers. This dish to me, is a must-order. Delightfully springy with a meaty bite, it is gloriously rich in umami-ness. I am sure this makes a great snack to have with alcohol too.

It wasn’t until my most recent visit to @shaobbq that I ordered the “Salted Egg Yolk Yam”. Mentally kicked myself upon my first bite because it revealed itself to be stellar. I really liked the cottony-soft texture of the blocks of yam and how it paired with the fragrant, savoury and slightly spiced up sauce.

Ending off on a sweet note, our favourite teochew dessert, Orh Nee. It’s a first for us to see osmanthus added to this classic dessert which usually has just pumpkin, gingko nuts and water chestnut at times. Sweetness level was reasonable, with a honey floral essence from the osmanthus. Texture was smooth and not too dry. The individual portion was just right.
