OPS Friend Bought Nice 2pax Lunch @ Zai Shun 载顺 Zi Char on 4Apr2017

steamed shark’s cartilage

my OPS friend came to fetch me for lunch at zai shun 载顺 toady on 4Apr2017. ^^

we were a bit late. we arrived at the carpark next to the zai shun 载顺 block at 12pm, and very lucky got a lot immediately.

later I googled & it was mentioned that zai shun 载顺 starts at 7am & by 11am many items are sold out.

place was neat, bright & airy. ambience was quite good.

sour sop & water chestnut drinks

my friend went to get drinks as well.

I had sour sop (apparently the last order) & he took the water chestnut. 🙂

steamed shark’s cartilage

my friend ordered the steamed shark’s cartilage. the stall owner told him that’s among the last orders.

this was supremely good. soft bones & gelatinous & the steamed sauce was tasty & slight tangy, quite perfect la..

later we figured the dish might have cost like S$40…if so that was really expensive & didn’t really make sense.

but it was so good, that I am actually prepared to pay that if that indeed the price the next time I come.

this place famous for their steamed fish & fish heads. I saw many tables ordered the steamed garoupa etc including the 2 guys on my table with what looked like a 900g-1kg red garoupa…wonder what that cost?

anyway only 2 of us. told my friend not to order too much. we were very happy with the shark’s cartilage! ^^

fried bittergourd egg with salted egg white

one dish which other bloggers mentioned was the fried bittergourd with egg & also salted egg white!

my helper does this many times (not with salted egg white) & always good, but this was better even, quite exceptional.

the salted egg white made quite a difference. the dish was really flavourful/tasty.

this dish was monsterous in serving size. my friend said the stall owner said only 1 size?? don’t really made sense, but we were not complaining as the dish was exceptionally good!

cai buay – salted veg

we only ordered one more dish – the ubiquitous cai buay – salted veg.

a simple dish but this was very good. other places very salty or overly sweet. here just the right salty & not sugarly sweet but a nice gentle sweetness.

my friend said he paid S$54. we don’t really know the price, but I guess the huge plate of egg bittergourd was S$12 (it could be more) & the cai buay S$2, which leaves the shark’s cartilage like S$40. it could be S$36 too with the bittergourd S$16.

for me it was very enjoyable lunch thanks to my friend who bought lunch! ^^

I will definitely come back here again.
