Fu Xing Mei Shi (富兴美食): Affordable Tze Char At Dunman Food Centre (Previously at Tanjong Katong)
What a joy to find an affordable and tasty Tze Char eatery which is a short drive from my place. Fu Xing Mei Shi is nestled in the same coffee shop as Nan Xiang Chicken Rice along Tanjong Katong, next to Caltex station.
Apparently, there is another Fu Xing Mei Shi at Dunman Food Court, Onan Road. Whether is it a relocation to Tanjong Katong or a second establishment, that I’m uncertain.
It was my second visit and I decided to bring my family here for dinner.
The menu here ain’t that extensive like a restaurant, but adequate for a simple dinner.
During both visits, I have tried their Black Bean Sauce Steamed Fish Head ($13/15), Salted Egg Yolk Sotong ($15), Pork Ribs King ($15), Ginger Onion Beef ($12), Omelette ($8), Sambal Kang Kong ($6), Fried French Beans ($6) and Beef Hor Fun ($4.5)
Satisfactory dishes were Black Bean Sauce Steamed Fish Head, Pork Ribs, Salted Egg Yolk Sotong, Fried French Beans and Beef Hor Fun.
I found their Black Bean Sauce nicely balanced and the fish meat fresh and sturdy.
Pork Ribs had crispy crust, meat was tender and adorned with a coat of sweetened sauce that I fancy.
The sotong dish wasn’t too shabby as well, but just a little on the damped thus the crust lacked that crispy element.
The belacan used for the french beans was mama mia! It was a plate of savoury shiokness! They sauce was a match made in heaven when mixed with white rice.
Lastly, dry Beef Hor Fun was a little wet, but had a fragrant wok hei, so can’t really complain.
As for the other dishes, although they aren’t highly recommended, but you may try your luck!
Total bill for 7 dishes inclusive of steamed rice was $67 for 7 pax.
