This casual restaurant does all the zi char dishes with flair. Try the sambal belachan fish and black pepper crab.
This is the original Lai Huat which has moved from Ophir Rd to Lavender St to Tyrwhitt Rd and now Horne Rd.
Their signature Balachan Fish and Black Pepper Crayfish are must order items whenever I dine at this restaurant. Some of my other favourites are their chilli crab(the gravy goes very well with rice or man-tou), salted egg yolk prawn, mee suah and prawn roll(something like ngor hiang), thumbs up ! Great place for quality food and price is reasonable.
One of the many old school eateries in the Jalan Besar area. At the corner of the block, where Windowsill Pies is. We chanced upon this when looking for dinner before dessert.
One sign that draws The Squirrel’s attention is the many articles pasted on the walls of the shop. Including that of “Makan places lost and found”. This had to be good! So… This is where they were located before.
I wonder why the emphasis on the word “old”. And the thing is I realised they do actually have a branch at the junction of Jalan Tua Kong that I have been meaning to try for a while, except of course that has no mention of “old”. Yes, I know that’s new, so is that why…?
Balachan Fish was unique and worth the hype. Other regular Tzechar dishes are above average but small, but the service was not good and we waited 45min for the first dish :( Details and pics at http://www.eatprayflying.com/lai-huat-tzechar-jalan-besar/
