WHERE IS THE BEST ZI CHAR / CZE CHA IN SENGKANG AND PUNGGOL ???? WHAT DISHES ARE NICE TO EAT ?
if you are looking for a Chinese 煮炒 Zi Char or Cze Cha to bring your family or friend out for a sumptuous dinner, here are some of the best Zi Char spots you can find in Sengkang and Punggol. Or you may want to tabao your favourite hor-fun or salted fried rice !!! The Best of the best in Sengkang and Punggol are as follows:
1. MING XIANG 銘香, Punggol Zi Char / Cze Cha
Address: Blk 218 Sumang Walk 820218 (Punggol HDB Matilda Portico Blk 218 Multi-Storey Carpark).
2. FU KEE SEAFOOD MINi WOK 富記海鮮煮炒 , Sengkang Zi Char / Cze Cha
Address: Blk 263 Compassvale Street Singapore 540263 (Koufu Foodcourt).
i have been patronising this stall for 10 over years. Its simple Hor Fun is still as good ! Ate their San Lao Hor Fun 三撈河粉 and Wat-Dan Bee Hoon (with egg) today! Their San Lao Hor Fun 三撈河粉 is a wetter version with a bit more gravy than usual ones, but you still can distinctivelyf taste the fragrant Wok-Hei !!! Their other signatures include Curry Fish Head, Fried Beef Hor Fun, Ginger and Spring Onion Beef Rice, Prawn Ball, Marmite Pork Ribs, Fish Head Steam Boat.
3. 雄 BBQ SEAFOOD , Sengkang Zi Char / Cze Cha
Address: Blk 350A Anchorvale Road #01-01 Singapore 541350.
Usually i have to travel all the way to Bedok 85 to get my Stingray cravings fixed!!! This is probably one of the ONLY place in Sengkang that i know of that serves very Nice Stingray without getting a hammer knocked on your head (Kar Cai Tao). There is another coffeeshop in Sengkang i know that also serves Stingrays, but it is very pricey (about $20) , it is definitely beyond my comfort zone!!! I found this BBQ Seafood Zi Char (Cze Cha) stall in one of the newer Coffeeshop located at Anchorvale. It serves super nice BBQ Stingray at $10, $12, $15. Same Price level as Bedok 85 !!! And most importantly, i find the QUALITY comparable!!!
At first , i tried their Stingray rice at $5, but the Stingray portion is too small for me !!! But, It is only $5, so i cannot expect a lot !!! The sambal really “sting” me !!! I eventually returned to try their $12 Stingray ! It is really done to my liking ! Slightly fried, before BBQ-ing. The Sambal topping was POWWWWWER !!!!. It will really “STING” your taste buds, and leaving you with Satisfication Rays coming out of your head ! They serves also Zi Char and other BBQ Seafood, like Lala, Sotong, and many other mouthwatering delicacies! Enjoy this hidden food gem !
