Tong Ah Seafood Restaurant, Keong Siak Road
This place (36 Keong Saik Road, 6223-5083) has apparently been here for ages. I'm not necessarily a huge fan of cze cha though, so I wasn't expecting much, but I did leave with a better-than-expected impression.
I'm not even sure of the names of all the items that we got, but I sure did like this very refreshing soup, which had a savory yet rich white color and was filled with mushrooms, some greens, and slices of fish and pork. The prawn paste chicken was delightfully boneless, although suspiciously *too* tender. The hor fun noodles worked for me too, even if I usually don't like gravy on my food. The only things that I wasn't as big on were those that were a bit on the sweeter side: some tofu thing plus a pork rib dish mixed with bitter gourd.
Well, I'm still not a huge cze cha person, so I won't be running back here. But it was good to see what all the fuss was about. Besides, it was better than I thought it would be, and the low prices never hurt anyone either.
