Food Review: Sin Ho Zi Char at Bedok North | Make sure you order their Prawn Paste Chicken aka Har Cheong Gai!

The Place Located at Bedok Central’s other hawker centre, Sin Ho has been famous for its Prawn Paste Chicken (aka ‘Har Cheong Gai’) and I was excited when a dinner party was organised there. Being a morning market, the hawker centre looks rather deserted during the evening. Although a walk to the back rows of the market, you will start noticing crowds gathering around the Sin Ho store – a sense of assurance swept in, as we uncovered another food gem.

The Food Expect your daily zi-char fares, although Sin Ho operates as a fish soup store in the day, before it transpires to their evening menu with various seafood and fish based items. The first order of the day was the Crayfish Seafood Soup (S$15). With generous servings of crayfish, the clear seafood broth is a perfect dish to have with your orders here. You can order the soup with other ingredients, including Batang and Red Grouper, which I am sure would go well with the sweet seafood broth.

Another signature here, which I understood may sold out if you visit the store late in the evening, the Prawn Paste Chicken (S$8 for 6, S$12 for 9, S$16 for 12) is a must order. The chicken is well-seasoned, and is definitely a competent take of this local zi char classic by Sin Ho. For just S$8, the ‘Har Cheong Gai’ is really worth it.

The Sambal Lala (S$15) surprised me, as the freshness of the shellfish and the sambal is shiok enough for someone whom do not take to spicy food that well. Order this and enjoy it with white rice!

To complete your meal, go for the Prawn Omelette (S$6). Noting exceptional, but this is perhaps a comfort dish for most Singaporeans. Sin Ho makes it more enjoyable with fresh prawns – an advantage of being a fish soup store during the day. Sin Ho’s seafood items are fresh across all the dishes I had here.

Rants Not the best spot to dine with a large group, as the store is located in a Hawker Centre, which naturally limits the party size to six per table.

Will I Return Again? The pandas love zi char, and there is no better way to enjoy a good meal with like-minded foodies. The dishes at Sin Ho are competent, and it is definitely a spot we will return again whenever we are in the vicinity. Thanks to Miss Tam Chiak for the worthy recommendation!

    There are 3 other prawn noodles stall at 216. Two of the other stalls are also very popular. I tried all 4 stalls but like the stall facing the main road, the cheapest of the 4 and very good. The soup is very clear, not oily and has strong prawn taste.👍👍
