fantastic local singaporean-chinese cooking

good singaporean-chinese mainstay near bugis. guys, this place is a local institution – it’s the sort of old-school restaurant your grandparents and their grandparents went to (depending on how old you/they are) for their birthdays and weddings and chinese new year celebrations.   in short, eating here is like paying respect to nostalgia and all your forefathers stood for – and it doesn’t hurt that the cooking is fantastic, classics executed perfectly, and service efficient (as it always was in the old days).   it’s the kind of food most of us chinese in singapore grew up eating, a little more polished and extravagrant than mum’s daily cooking, but familiar enough to feel as comforting.   that also means that while there is a lot I could tell you about how soft and yielding the tofu was, how sweet-savory the sauce on the pork ribs, and how those individual grains of fried rice were expertly seasoned and delicious, I could just as well say nothing much – silence here as implicit approval and agreement with the esteemed expertness of this place.

Glass splitter in food - no acknowledgement or apology from owner!

Ordered Black Pepper Beef and Fried Rice which was quite tasty - however when I chewed on a glass-splitter in my dish and showed it to the Chinese waitress she just smiled and nodded before she left again. Assuming that her command of English was not that good I informed the owner about the problem and showed him the bit of glass. Instead of acknowledging the problem, he told me that this is only a grain of salt and I don't need to worry. I then challenged him to eat the grain of salt and left after he starred blankly at me for ten seconds.

Summary: Food good but watch out for foreign objects - and don't expect the owner to take responsibility it something goes wrong in the kitchen.

famous but not all dishes were great for me

Photos and details at http://www.eatprayflying.com/wing-seong-fattys-restaurant-bencoolen-street/

The home made tofu, ngoh hiang and kang kong were great. but some dishes like cereal prawn were bit bland for me. Good value for $ but I don't get the hype abot this place.

Authentic cantonese food

Wing Seong Fatty's Restaurant has a long history and is now passed down to the next generation. It also has a affinity with Qantas Airline because back then, Qantas pilots patronized their restaurant for the unique and authentic Cantonese Cuisine. You wouldn't be surprised if you see more foreigners than locals here at the restaurant.  That night during the tasting, two Caucasians spotted me snapping photo of the door front and introduced themselves as Qantas pilots. I was quite delighted to be able to chat with them a little. 

First up we had an appetizer (jumbo spring roll $3 per roll) that was out of the menu. The spring roll differentiates itself from the commonly found ones through the ingredients stuffed in it. Sink your teeth into the crispy skin to find roast pork bits, chunky bean sprout and juicy radish in one such simple spring roll. I honestly think that the price is really reasonable. 

One of the mains served here is the seafood Horfun/fried kway teow ($14). It comes with either fish or assorted seafood. There is a consistent silky texture of the noodles and the horfun sauce, not forgetting the bountiful amount of fresh seafood and vegetables. The slight charred taste added an extra flavour to it. The horfun was my favourite and I would recommend families to order this as a staple dish. 
Another good competitor against the fried kway teow is none other than a plate of fragrant fried rice ($14) that comes with lots of ingredients chopped into tiny pieces. Just like how the name suggests, the belachan (fried shrimp paste) gives a strong alluring taste that stands out itself. I like how the fried rice isn't too moist.

By now I'm quite convinced that the sauce plays a huge role in each dishes. The next dish that - Homemade beancurd with mushroom gravy ($22) has its tofu drizzled with mushroom sauce that appeals to all the mushroom lovers. The tofu has a crispy outer layer wrapping its smooth and soft tofu, it was definitely easy to down a few pieces in no time.  
Savour a dish of Black pepper beef ($22) combining the goodness of onion slices and pepper spices. The beef are very well prepared and it doesn't taste too tough like how beef would taste when they are cooked for too long. I'm sure beef lovers would love this.

lunch review

Based on my colleague, "The Food Guru's" recommendation, we decided to have a simple lunch at this establishment nearby our office.

Not feeling too hungry, we ordered the a beef, chicken and vegetable dish. Starting with the asam beef, it is not something I would recommend as the beef tasted liked it had gone through some serious rounds of tenderisation and the asam flavours was too light with quite a strong "lemak" finish.

The prawn paste chicken ("har chiong kai") came as expected, nothing much to shout about.

I did however, enjoy the pea shoots (dou miao) which had a strong garlic flavour to the crunchy vegetable.

Overall, I found the food to be okay. The place has more than twenty years of history and has earned its share of followers. Service staff were friendly and helpful.
