As the name suggested, this place was founded in 1980 selling rice dumplings or bak zhang in SG terms. This place came highly recommended and since I was in Zhongshang Road, I went ahead to try their food.

沙茶面 RMB$6 without any ingredients - A must try when in Fujian or Xiamen. But this place not famous for this. Hence so so only.

Pork Soup RMB$6 - Soup is not bad. At least no pork smell. Wanted to try the wonton soup but ran out.

五香 - This ngoh hiang is better than the one at 潮福城 but still SG one taste better. Maybe because I'm not a big fan of 80% lard inside and no liver.

拌面 - Typical Fujian staple of sesame paste sauce and noodles. This one is a little like Taiwanese influence, with sweet chilli sauce under it. Not bad in taste.

Rating: 4/5. 

Taste: 4/5. It’s a typical Xiamen or Minnan food eated by the locals. For me the taste is just ok only, nothing to shout about.

Ambience: 3/5. You come out you smell of ngoh hiang…

Price: Very affordable. Less than RMB$30 per pax.

RTE: Maybe.
