On a cold and wet evening, I dined here with my family. The coffeeshop had a pretty good crowd, mostly patronizing this ze char stall. There were reserved tables for the ze char stall even. As it gets later in the night, people can only wait for a table.
Mom ordered the pomfret steamboat ($32) with additional plate of chinese cabbage ($3) (tang-O sold out), har cheong gai (prawn paste chicken) ($10), hay zhor (prawn roll) ($8) and deep fried tofu with pork floss ($6).
Steamboat was ok, at least hardly any MSG as far as I am concerned. Fish was fresh. Har Cheong Gai was kinda salty. Hay Zhor was ok by normal ze char outlets standards. However, I normally will not order this dish as my personal preference is my mom's hay zhor (or even my own). Deep fried tofu with pork floss was ok too.
Food here is ok and I will return. Its also 'cos its convenient for me as its near home, just slight detour on the way home from work to tapao. The fish steamboat pricing is a tad expensive though.
Oh, Mom had been buying the lo hei from here for the past 2 years and we liked it. Don't remember how much already but I know its cheap (Mom won't get expensive stuff one.:P) and the fish slices are fresh and generous.
This stall is in the same coffeeshop where I get breakfast from my favourite stalls, congee and beehoon. Yummy! :)
