SingFood Stall – Famous Halal Zi Char Stall in Jurong
Westies unite! SingFood Stall is a halal zi char stall located in Jurong West. Besides the usual offerings such as hor fun, and fried rice, this zi char stall offers Cheese Prawn Bee Hoon ($12 or $20), that is served in a claypot.
We had the $12 version which came with 3 pieces of prawns. We were told that the chef uses Kraft cheese for the thick, creamy broth, but we didn’t taste anything cheesy at all. Nevertheless, the flavourful broth was creamy and had a good amount of wok hei.
The staff also recommended the Pumpkin Cream Sauce Prawn Roll ($14), and the Hotplate Chilli Snapper (market price).
Encased in a thick and crispy batter are pieces of dory fillet, prawn, and a small serving of mashed pumpkin. I couldn’t taste much of the pumpkin initially, but when I did, there was a slight sweetness to the otherwise bland golden brown nugget. The accompanying mayo dip was definitely needed.
I thought it was kind of interesting that the snapper is steamed before it is drenched in chilli sauce. The fish didn’t sport a char, but the flesh was soft and fresh. The chilli sauce had lingering flavours of Assam which were quite refreshing.
Singaporeans are really fans of cheese. It is nice to know that even zi char stalls are keeping up with the times and flavour preferences of Singaporeans.
