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