Terrific Teochew

This week, our Makan Kaki Willin Low tells us about one of his favourite restaurants, which serves up tasty, traditional Teochew cuisine from within its cramped, no-frills quarters to many satisfied stomachs daily. And who needs frilly surroundings when the food’s this good?

You’ll find all the usual Teochew favourites here, like steamed pomfret with preserved plum, braised goose with tofu and orh nee (yam dessert with lard & ginko)…


Steamed Pomfret


Braised Goose with Tofu


Orh Nee

… But what Willin really loves & recommends you try, are these 2 other phenomenal dishes executed to yummy perfection:

1. Chai Por Char Kway Teow
Fried flat rice noodles with preserved turnip. It’s packed with umami flavours and that all-important wok hei.

2. Orh Luak
The fried oyster omelette is awesome, with crispy edges, fragrant egg and plump, wobbly oysters bursting with briny flavour.

Be sure you call for reservations before going, this place is always packed!
