In Singapore’s dynamic and ever-expanding food scene, there are no shortages of decent zi char stalls and restaurants scattered all over the island. But while many of them sell pretty much the same items whether its a humble plate of fried rice or prawn paste chicken, there are certain stalls that boast their fair share of innovative creations.
Two Chefs Eating Place is one such stall that constantly innovates and experiments with conventional zi char classics, dishing out interesting yet delicious dishes such as their stellar Butter Pork Ribs that comes with a sweet-savoury milk powder as well as their XO Salted Egg Yolk Prawns.
For a delightful zi char experience with a few contemporary spins here and there, head down to Two Chefs Eating Place over at Sin Ming Avenue!
Like all zi char restaurants, variety is never an issue. With over 50 mouthwatering dishes to choose from, we highly recommend coming in a big group.
A treat for those who have a sweet tooth, Two Chef’s signature Butter Pork Ribs (S$8) is a crowdpleaser in its own right. Deep-fried pork ribs are given a generous sprinkling of their house-perfected buttery milk powder that gives the savoury pork a hint of sweetness.
The real magic, however, happens when the milk powder mixes and melts together with the steaming-hot pork juices. The result? A combination of sweet, milky richness coupled with meaty pork flavour—heavenly.
To make yourself feel a little better about yourself—especially after all that meat—it probably wouldn’t hurt to order up a vegetable dish. Our personal favourite includes the Spinach with Egg, Salted Egg & Century Egg (S$8) that sees a generous portion of spinach swimming in a tasty broth filled with garlic, salted egg, century egg and a runny egg yolk.
With all that eggy goodness in one plate, this is one vegetable dish that we will gladly mop up without hesitation.
As far as har cheong gai or prawn paste chicken goes, two elements have to be spot on—the prawn flavour has to shine through the chicken and the skin has to be super crispy. Thankfully, their Prawn Paste Chicken (S$8) did not disappoint.
While others may argue that it tastes rather mild, what we particularly enjoy about their version of this back-to-basics zi char side dish is the fact that they don’t overdo it on the prawn paste. The taste and smell of the prawn paste was apparent yet not overpowering to the extent that it totally drowned out the taste of the chicken—which was rather tasty we must say.
