Ga-Hock Seafood @ Upp Bukit Timah Road

Last weekend, uncle and aunt brought us all to eat at this place that many people are flocking too. It's far off, but not too far from where they live.

During peak hours, you got to wait for some time, but if you go earlier or later, it might not be that bad. So, what's the attraction? The food's reasonably good and it is reasonably cheap. You know eating out nowadays can be so unsatisfying (small portions) and yet so expensive.

Tuck along this coffee shop called Hup Choon Eating House along Upper Bukit Timah Road, there's a zhi-char stall.

It's called Ga-Hock Seafood. You need to go to the back of the Eating House. You will be amazed by how many people are there! (Where we sat was open air, so the food photos are a bit blur, due to insufficient lighting)

We had 9 of us (three children), and this is what we ate:
Sweet and Sour Pork, nicely done, and portions big too. $14

This is the prawn paste chicken. $12.
It's kinda like well fried outside, but inside it is still juicy.

Almost all the table here as the Curry Fish Head. $19.
Served on a big claypot, the sauce is so captivating, if you like curry, you will definitely ask for more rice, so you can wallop the curry! haha.. It is topped with yummy fried bean curd skin.

This is the seafood mix with veg and tofu. $18.
The tofu's not too bad.

This is the long beans with dried shrimps. $10.
We can taste 'salted fish' bits in it too. With 'hae bee' (dried shrimps) and salted fish, you can imagine how fragrant it is!

The sambal kangkong ($7) is also delicious. Yes, with the 'woke hei'.
Hey, even the kids found it yummy, thought it is a bit spicy for them.

Yup, a new discovery for the rest of us, thanks to aunt's recommendation. (Or aunt's gang of friends)

Oh yes, it only accepts cash. So if you are coming remember to bring cash.
