I frequent two HK Streets on a regular basis: the one on Upper Changi Rd next to the Cold Storage as well as the one beside Maxwell Food Centre round the corner from the 7-11. There is a HK St at Novena too but since my mum informed me that that branch is sub-standard, I've been steering clear.
First up, the food is sublime. Each HK St has its own outstanding house specialty. The Upper Changi Rd branch boasts the best ever Har Cheong Kai (deep-fried chicken wings marinated in prawn paste). The Maxwell one is supposed to specialise in fish head steamboat, but it really is the pork rib with salted egg yolk that takes centrestage. In fact, there are so many die-die-must-try dishes on both branch's menus that it would take an entire novel to fully list the culinary delights! Everything on the menu at both places is amazing, I've yet to be disappointed by either branch.
Best che char in SG!
Bustling Zi Char
A 3 minute walk away from my home, this eatery is not only convenient yet delicious as well. The tables are always full during lunch and dinner times, and i could wait up to 20 minutes to be served my food when i eat there or tapao home. I even spotted local songbird Stephanie Sun there once ^^
I liked their Fishead beehoon. I didnt get their XO version as it was pretty expensive (around $8). Their normal fishead beehoon was already packed with oomph. The soup coupled with the milk was so flavourful and they gave many huge fish slices which made the $6 worth. I also liked the fried rice and prawn paste chicken wings, although i have to admit, it tasted very much like the typcial above average zi char.
I will continue to patronize HK Street chun tat kee because it is a convenient and affordable zichar for me and my family
Note: Their chili paste is so so so spicy yet appetizing!
tze char - hong kong style
I have been here a couple of times over the year and all I can say is that their standard hasn't dropped! Their san lau hor fun is a must try! You can't find good san lau hor fun these days and Hong Kong Street's san lau hor fun is indeed one of the best I have tried! The fish slices are fresh, the hor fun is thin and not chunky. The gravy is not too salty yet flavorful.
The prawn paste chicken wings are good too! The well marinated chicken wings are fried till perfection, leaving the skin extremely crispy and the meat remains soft and juicy.
The other dishes are really quite good too though I feel that the price might be on the high side. But for quality food, I don't mind paying a little bit more.
This stall is always crowded during lunch and dinner hours and that itself is an attestation to how good it is. I've eaten here on several occasions and although the individual dishes are expensive, they are really top-notch. For example, I dare say the Kang Kong served with cuttlefish is even better than up-market restaurants; perhaps the best. For those on a tighter budget, their one-dish meals like the San Lau Hor Fun is guaranteed to make you satisfied at affordable prices. Parking too is very convenient with a car park (Balestier Plaza) just beside it. The only downside would be the mediocre service and lack of seats. Other than that, it’s well worth coming back.
