ThisZi Char stall has been in operation at Alexandra for almost 20 years and but has recently relocated its operation to 120/122 Neil Road and it serves Cantonese cuisine and seafoods.
For those who have been looking for this food store that used to be at the end of Stirling Road, look no further. This is indeed the store that used to be at 356 Alexandra Road, where the condominium Alexis stands now.
The roasted chicken or 麻辣烧鸡 is still as good as before despite being more than two years since I last ate it. Unfortunately, the price has increased to $26 for a whole chicken. Nevertheless, it is still very reasonable considering the quality of food that is served.
Unfortunately, Victory Seafood no longer serves doubled-boiled soups, which used to be one of my favourite dishes from the food store.
The owners have been operating the business since the 1980s but over different venues from old tiong bahru estate, to alexandra road (where coffeeshop was demolished to current Alexis condo site) and now to the latest Neil Road location. The conspicuous location will not stay hidden for long as more and more regulars realised the reopening of their old favourite here!
My favourites are the signature crispy chicken with special sauce (I cannot find this anywhere else!), black pepper and chilli crabs, self made tofu, handmade mini spring rolls with sweet sauce and nonya fish head.
Despite being the owner, the uncle still supervises the cooking by the chef to ensure the standards in tastes and quality. I love the cantonese wok hei taste in most of the dishes and seriously think that it rivals the other old names in tiong bahru like Sin Hoi Sun in terms of tastes and prices.
If you are looking for non- over hyped food, quality and great cantonese tastes, this is the place to go. It is a smaller venue compared to the previous alexandra road venue, so you may want to book table advance if you are going down in big groups.
