The wok hei is incredible!!

For the full post and picture visit tooseetofeeltoeatSik Wai Sin is basically a modest zi char store which serves superb food. There is no menu here and the only way you know what to order is by listening to an elderly lady rattle on a list of yummy food. The eating area is linked to the kitchen so you can smell the delicious aroma of food being cooked at the back while you wait patiently for your food.
The Steamed Fish Head with Bean Paste was served first and it was so awesome. The fish was fresh and very tender, drenched in fragrant bean paste. 
Fried vegetables with prawns. The wok hei in this dish was incredible! Oh my, I love my zi char cooked over  very hot fire as the wok hei gives food an extra punch. 
The last dish we ordered was Braised Pork Ribs with Bitter Gourd. The pork ribs were meaty and tender, absorbing the essence of the sauce completely. The thick slices of bitter gourd were not bitter at all and had this nice salty aftertaste. Yummy!

o what the food is good but lousy attitude from the boss....no wonder it has no more customer. anyway...i think some internal conflict among them...no longer serve any of thise food mention by rest of the folks here...so the place is as good as just a coffee shop. if you still want to try, just drive pass and look inside...if there is alot empty table means NO GOOD FOOD!

Disinterested staffs. At opening time, they are still not interested in opening the shop. Disappointing service and attitude.

I have been eating at this restaurant since I knew how to eat rice.... That would be more than 35 years ago. The food always draws me back even though they were over priced... They only served standard dishes.... which was good enough to pull in queues during lunch and dinner times.... Even though the taste had changed when the elder son took over the kitchen from the father it was still good. But today's meal there was an absolutely different story. The menu had shrunk to only 5 dishes and 2 soups... where are the crowd favorites like tofu prawns/young ginger chicken/sweet and sour pork/etc... The whole feel was different.... The old master chef was even cooking even though he couldn't walk properly.... I felt sad after eating. I really hope they can bring back the good old dishes agai

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
