Coffeeshop at the junction of Keong Siak Road and Teck Lim Road
I have always heard good things about the zhe char
(they cook up Chinese dishes to order) here and finally got to sample it today. We were feeling rather hungry and proceeded to order up a storm in no time: sizzling claypot liver – this actually tastes quite fabulous, with the liver cooked just right, still slightly pink in the middle, with spring onions and a soy sauce marinade; a claypot chicken – I cant quite figure what went into it, but the chicken was fried first before hitting the pot, it was delicious nevertheless; tapioca leaves in sambal
(a chilli paste); the soup of the day was average; and a fish head smothered in a slightly spicy red bean sauce. It was a mighty good meal. Total bill for the three of us: S$36 (US$21).
So we were very stuffed and very happy. We were also told that the French toast here was to die for. It was a no-brainer as we proceeded to order a serving of it. The French toast was grilled, not fried, hence the lovely chargrilled flavour, and served with a side of kaya
(coconut jam) obviously home made, just like how my mother would make it. We could not find any more room but heard that this coffeeshop serves a mean coffee and tea too. Till the next visit...
