Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee (1988) 潮州酒楼發記 – Amoy Street, Singapore


This restaurant is definitely out of my usual posts for good and affordable food in Singapore. But when you meet up with friends occasionally you get to eat slightly costlier food and when I write on them, means they are pretty impressive! I haven’t been to these parts of town for the longest time mainly because I don’t work in town. This place is definitely a lot more crowded on weekdays but on a Sunday, you can literally walk in the middle of Amoy Street… for 10 seconds without a car honking at you and people calling you seow (mad) at least… ;P

First time to this place, never knew this place to be honest, highly recommended by a friend. See the pics below and comments:

Nestled along the heritage rows of traditional shop houses
Restaurant front
Wine rack spotted… Not typical for a traditional restaurant but I believe most are evolving.
Braised Goose ($24) – A typical Chaosan dish and quite rare in Singapore actually. Goose meat is generally rare but abundant in China. This plate of yummy braise meats and eggs is really nice.
Prawn Roll ($18) – Another awesome traditional dish. I remember my grandma and aunty would make this for Chinese New Year. It’s been a long time since I’ve tasted so authentic ones.
Steam Pomfret ($65) – This is very expensive given the simple ingredients used but the good thing is, the fish is fresh and tender, and quite a big fish. Eating fish out of your home is never cheap in Singapore anyways.
Fried Oyster Omelette ($18) – This is probably one of the few places that gives me the good old taste from my childhood days… Very well done and really authentic in taste!
Stir Fried Nai Bai Veg ($18) – Simple and nice.
Yam Paste ($24) is really damn good and not so sweet. The pumpkin inside makes it very teochew and they are so generous with the ginko nuts! Yummy must order!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Very authentic. Love it.

Portion: Average.

Service: Very good and attentive. Maybe Sunday lesser people they can focus more on you… ;P

Ambience: Nice spacious place, air conditioned of course. Best of all you don’t smell like the restaurant after you step out.

Price: Total with drinks, rice, service charge, GST, side dishes, around S$210 for 7 pax.

RTE: Yeah I would wanna to bring mummy here! She’ll love it.
