Yummy dinner!

Just had dinner at this restaurant (formerly Changi Seafood from Changi Village) so I'm not sure why it's flagged as "Closed" here. they opened at this new location about 12-13 days ago.

We were a table of 7 and so we ordered their special creamy salted egg crab, fried baby squid, stir fried roman lettuce with garlic, coffee pork ribs and the chilli lala.

The chilli lala came first and it was really tasty, especially going down well with steamed rice. Then came the roman lettuce with garlic, a simple yet fragrantly cooked dish.

These were just build up to the first star of the night - the coffee pork ribs. You could taste the slight bitterness of the coffee powder used in the marinate and it went really well with the rest of the sauce and the unbelievably tender pork ribs, which were de-ribbed first before cooking.

After this, came the star attraction - the creamy salted egg crab. slightly on the dry side (there wasn't much gravy), it was very very tasty! not too salty, it was almost sinful! we ordered a plate of fried mantou anyway to try to polish off what sauce there was! The only drawback was that this was easily the most expensive dish of the night (~S$68 for about 1.5kg), probably due to the increase in the market rate of crabs.

Lastly, came the fried baby squid. This should have come before the crabs but nevertheless, it was still polished off. The squids were tasty but the sauce a tad sweet. However, as this dish is not very common nowadays, it is still tasty enough to warrant a second go.

Definitely recommended if you are looking for some great zi car and seafood!

Highly recommended!

I usually go there with my family. My parents absolutely love their chili crabs. Its fabulous and great! They added lemon grass to the gravy which makes it very fragrant. Their other dishes such as volcano beancurd, beef with black bean sauce, fried lala Malaysian style are great too! Best of all, the prices are very reasonable, there is no GST and no service charge. Highly recommended!

Very good crabs at Taste of Village

Was there last week after purchasing the $25 for a 900g crab deal coupon.

Ordered 2 types of crabs - crab in vermicelli & the house specialty crab.

Was pleasantly surprised that the crab in vermicelli was so full of roe. The accompanying gravy was tasty. As there were other dishes, when left sitting for a long time, the vermicelli did not bloat or turn mushy. Dish was very rich (due to the roe) & very well done.

The next crab dish was their house specialty, which I had eaten in M'sia before, where it was called 'kum heong'. The crab meat tasted sweeter than the 1st, & was fresh too. The accompanying spice sauce was nice, but I think the one I tasted in M'sia was more fragrant.

The other dishes I ordered were - prawn in salted egg, fish slice in mee sua & hokkien mee. These were so-so. The hokkien mee was not the KL black fat noodle type, the black sauce is too sweet for my liking. There was big pieces of deep fried lard, but I would have preferred them to cut into smaller pieces for a more subtle taste.

Overall, we enjoyed the meal very much because of the crabs, which were great value due to the discount coupons. Prices of other items were reasonable zi-char setting prices.The bosses were very friendly too. Will certainly come back again to try their other specialty dishes.

Cheap & Good Food - Hingly Recommend!!

My friend recommended a zhi char place for dinner after work. I didn't have high expection initially as thought only a normal zhi char restaurant with no specialty. But surprisingly, there are few significant dishes that are really delicious which not common at other zhi char place. I have tried their salted egg prawn, nyonya fish, salted fisg mince pock & sambal french bean, really nice!! And the price are really cheap, all dishes $6.80-$8.80 only except for the fish. I saw a lot ppl order the crab, heard that they use special ingrediants for the chilli crab, would definitely visit again to try this out! The restaurant is near Kembangan MRT, only 5mins walk). The only bad thing is, don't have air cond, but the cheap price for all the dishes, ok lah, still can bear with it :-)

Simply Divine! restaurant quality food at coffeeshop prices!

had their famous fish head curry! simply heaven!its healthy too as they do not use coconut milk in the curry fish head, the salted egg prawns is perfection, even their chilli crab is unique like no other, the firm crabmeat of the Sri Lanka crabs and the yummy chilli crab gravy infuse with lemongrass, its uniquely delicious! in my opinion this is the best chilli crab ever, even better than Longbeach or even any other chinese restaurant that i hv ever tasted. get them to recommend u some signature dishes if u are new to this restaurant, we hv been back to the restaurant a couple of times ,each time bringing friends and family and they all love it! , remember to make reservations on weekends though as it might be difficult to get a table if you go in groups. they do catering as well and for the quality of the food, its amazingly cheap and affordable, i hv been to some high end restaurants and trust me alot of their dishes taste better here than at high price outlets. its a rare gem find and it was one of my friends who brought me there the first time round.and i m hooked ! hahah service can be a bit slow when its crowded but i guess that is wat happens to good food! but trust me , its definately worth the wait! cheers:))
