I called to reserve a table for 4 earlier in the week and was quite thankful that I did because there was a crowd even at 5:30 pm. Unbelievable.
Drunken cockles ($7) with a dash of soya sauce, chilli slices, garlic bits and spring onions. Very nice and refreshing! This dish was served cold.
Salted egg chicken. I love anything salted egg so it came as no surprise that I was really fond of the flavour of this dish. The chicken was a little on the dry side, though.
Herbal chicken soup. I could not find this on the menu for some reason, or maybe I was just flipping through too quickly. But in any case, the waitress knew what we were talking about when we asked for herbal chicken so I guess it might be one of those off-the-menu special items? The herbal soup was very good though the chicken was also a little on the dry side.
Vegetable with eggs, salted egg and century egg ($8). Simple, homely dish.
Butter Pork Ribs ($8). What sorcery is this! I was totally expecting pork ribs sitting in a plate of thick butter sauce yet we were greeted by this mountain of white powder. I haven't quite figured out whether it was powdered Parmesan cheese or milk powder, but it certainly was not butter. The pork ribs were yummy and well-marinated but I cannot stop wondering where the butter went.
Beancurd with golden mushroom ($8). Another simple homely dish.
Very simple zi char dishes at an affordable price. I would not say it deserves the large crowd gathered around the store on a weekend and we would not be driving to Commonwealth just for this anytime soon. But if you are staying nearby and would like some comfort zi char food, Two Chefs might just be the place for you. Personally, I also prefer zi char with more wok hei in the Cantonese style which might also be part of the reason I am not super fond of this place.
Quality has dropped tremendously over the years but the "buttered" powder is still nice to eat on a standalone. Milky and taste good :). Not much notable dishes but like the stir fried vegetable dish more than any other dishes that night. If you were to visit especially for that butter pork ribs you might get a little bit disappointed with high expectations. Everyone should go and try it out, it really really nice and delicious. Try it out now. Thank you
I have seen these butter pork ribs photos all over my instagram feed before and finally... its my turn to try them! I went there on a Sunday evening and thank god I made a reservation... the queue was insane! We were asked to take our orders before being told our seat number. I wouldnt advise anyone to have too high expectations of the service.... its a coffeeshop afterall. We ordered the herbal chicken, butter pork ribs, drunken cockles and fuyong egg. Our dishes were served promptly upon ordering. The herbal chicken soup was surprisingly delicious. I dont really like herb stuff but this was really tasty. It didnt have the bitter herb taste at all and the chicken was tender too. Next came the star of the night.. butter pork ribs! Now I totally understand what the hype is all about. The powder.. its so good I could just eat it with rice. I think I almost wanted to lick the entire plate clean. The egg was so-so... I mean, what do you expect from an egg. Its fluffy though, not too bland because they probably added soy and fish sauce. The cockles came last, and I am a huge fan of shellfish! The cockles were small, but they were tasty! A dish worth ordering but only 2 of us ate cockles.. so I guess we should have just ordered a small portion. Overall, it was a satisfying meal. Would definitely be back again more!
Love the butter pork ribs and of course, drunken cockles.
The wait is rather long, but worth it! I dont usually like to repeat places I eat, preferring to explore as many establishments as I can but I will gladly return to this place again and again! :D
