Good Teochew Zi Char

See my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2013/11/13/good-teochew-zi-char-mu-liang-zai-liang-kee-on-12nov2013/

6 of us had teochew zi char at muliang zai liang kee on 12.11.2013. few of us started a hawker & zi char tour some months back. it was mostly touch & go. the zi char at kok sen @ keong siak street was very good. woh hup @ hon glim was quite poor it was not worth a post!

mu liang zai liang kee is located along the same row of shophouses along havelock road at the opposite end of g7 liangkee. it is owned by the 5th son of ng bak liang (so 木亮仔=son of bak liang). 

we had a very enjoyable dinner, true tecohew comfort food, mostly good standard & tasty & at very affordable prices, w/o service & gst. we had 8 dishes adding up to S$136, about S$22+pax nett.the pork trotters jelly (猪脚冻) was just ok, competent. imperial treasure, crystal jade & chui huay lim versions were much better. it was cheap though, a large portion for S$10.

the hae chor (虾枣) & liver roll (肝花) were quite good, no much different from other teochew restaurants.

the braised sliced duck was surprisingly good. i did not expect much as many teochew restaurant like huat kee had very average (or poor) braised duck, and the braised goose we had recently at chui huay lim was poor c/w with this duck. still i very much prefer eating the style of braised duck like the 1/2 duck for S$28 at imperial treasure c/w this tiny plate of sliced duck for S$18. that was just my personal taste preference though.

the deep-fried tofu with minced pork (金牌豆腐) was excellent, equal to that at kok sen.

the orh nerng or oyster egg was an average & passable dish (passable in both senses – not failed OR can skip). like good teochews the few of us still preferred the sticky orh luar version with sweet potato flour at hawker centres.

the yellow chives with prawns (S$18) came with 7 large prawns. the prawns were large, fresh & springy, so it was not a bad prawn dish. it was though a bad yellow chives dish, no wok hae & swimming in sauce. it should be much dryer with strong wok hae flavour. :-)

the crayfish (S$28) i did not consider a well done dish (though some of my diner friends were obviously relishing it). i preferred the ah orh version of teochew crayfish with yellow onions & egg. the crayfish itself were plump, bouncy & tasty. not quite sure what chilli it was, not sambal & not really chilli crab chilli, though it did go well with the steamed buns.

the orh nee (芋泥) was good too – another pleasant surprise!

overall it was a good dinner for S$22nett. will be back again!

Mu LiangZai Liang Kee Restaurant: Birthdays are just a perfect excuse to have something good

Feel free to visit my site for more pictures: http://thedessertprince.com/mu-liang-zai-liang-kee-restaurant-birthdays-are-just-a-perfect-excuse-to-have-something-good/

Mu Liang Zai Liang Kee Restaurant 木亮仔亮记餐馆 is one of those nice cze char restaurants to consider. The name is quite a mouthful to pronounce so between me and my foodie friends, we just like to call the place Liang Kee 亮记. It does not help to know that there are two other restaurants that shares the same name. I am not interested in the family squabble so as long as the food is good and fantastic. I might just visit the other ones in the future but just to be clear, this review you are reading now is one of the other Liang Kee opened by Ng Hong Seng, one of Elder Ng’s son. Situated along the shophouses of Havelock Road, just behind Beo Crescent Food Centre is the Teochew restaurant with its rustic and old school interior to peer though. The place is small with just 8 to 10 large tables along the sides. Nothing fancy like the hotels I dine but what is ambiance when you have impressionable delicious food!

Being in a Teochew restaurant means you will find traditional dish that defines Teochew food. While I might arrive with a Cantonese descent, I could sure enjoy a plate of chilly Teochew Pig’s Feets in Aspic ($10). I’m just glad that I’m still able to find this dying dish in our modernised society. Not everyone could appreciate such a dish but if you aren’t a great fan of something gelatin, their Beancurd with Minced Meat (Small: $12, Big: $15) might just interest you. With their generous toppings of minced pork and  huge portion of those well deep-fried beancurds are pleasure to the taste buds. Every cze char stall should have their own signature dish but at this Liang Kee outlet, it has got to be their Crispy Golden Dragon Chicken (Small: $15, Big: $30). What makes the dish unique is the way their prepare it. On the top side it might just look like an ordinary chicken skin dish. But looks are superficial. Sometimes you just have to look deeper or in this case, filp it over… To sum up my entire experience with this particular successor outlet of the original Liang Kee restaurant, this is one place to consider if you’re looking for somewhere central to have a nice lunch and dinner with friends and family alike. The food might fare slightly more than the rest but the quality is sure to make you return back. If you ever walk down further, you might chance upon another shop call G7 Liang Kee Restaurant. I read that that was the original place where Liang Kee all begin after moving out from their place at the now-defunct Ellenborough Market. Family conflicts are just something we outsiders never understand.

Good Value

There are 3 Liang Kee Restaurant along the shophouse so do not end up going to the wrong one. It is the one nearer to the Teochew porridge.

We had braise duck meat with tofu very nice, deer meat stir-fried with ginger and onion, a simple stir fried veg, a fish maw soup very tasty, steam pomfret - fishy and fish too big when as for smaller one, not so nice.

Desert : yam paste very nice and smooth

Value: Reasonable value

Service: Good

Old friend from Ellenborough Mkt

This former 3rd floor restaurant, in a HDB block next to the river has surfaced in many forms. One of the clones, a few doors down the road was sold to a Taiwanese chain, this is the latest one to surface, owned by a brother. Still mainstream Teochew food.

Ambience: Simple, comfortable surrounding next to the road. Parking on the street or a car park behind the block.

Food: For starters we had the pork ears, head, flesh in aspic - uniquely Teochew. Tasty and firm to the taste. The goose meat was next, I found it a bit powdery and prefer a more chewy texture - still tasty. The prawns in old chives was fresh, well sauteed and had lots of vegetables. We then had a house tofu with pork sauce - freshly made, well seasoned and enough for everyone to eat. Two dark dishes came in next, fish head in bitter gourd with black beans, and "chicken" fish - trigger fish with black sauce. All were fresh and delicious, especially when mixed with white rice and mushed up. The food is of good quality, well prepared and reasonably priced.

Value: Reasonable value (see photo for menu n prices)

Service: Not many people know about this place, so go there for a meal fast !!

Deliciously Teochew

Mu Liang Zai Liang Kee is one of the three restaurants bearing the "Liang Kee" name (which grew to fame at Ellenborough Market).

We tried the pork aspic (lots of meat in the jelly), the house signature trigger fish with bean sauce, seafood in claypot, Teochew braised duck (the best I've ever had), salted fish rice with pork in claypot (superb), flower chives with prawns, steamed buns with braised pork (deliciously fatty), ginger-scallion beef, teochew fried noodles with chye poh, and orh nee (yam paste) with lard!
