My experience at You Huak Restaurant (Sembawang Famous White Beehoon)

Sponsored Event

Hello hello! I was invited by Openrice.sg again for another food tasting session! This time we were trying out the famous white bee hoon located at Sembawang. It was my first time trying out this zi char because I seldom come to the north side and I also heard from my friends that the white beehoon here is superb and famous in the North too! So for today's blogpost let me share with you my experience at You Huak Restaurant.


Address: 
You Huak Restaurant 
22 Jalan Tampang  (Opp Sembawang Shopping Centre) 
Telephone: 98434699 
11.30am to 10.30pm
*Closed on Wednesday. 



At the period of time, it was about 8:30PM on a regular working day! So if you wanna eat here you have to come here early and queue up. Good food is worth queueing for *winks*


Take a look at their menu! The prices are at an affordable range and not too overpriced.


Price: $12.00 

To admit to you guys, I have NEVER tried white bee hoon before. What I usually have when I order zi char is either hokkien mee, fried rice or seafood hor fan. Maybe it is because it is not so popular among the rest. It is served generously with prawns, sotong, vegetables and egg!  The prawn was juicy and delicious. This was the large size which cost $12 and can be eaten with 4-5 people. Overall, it was moist and the the gravy has a light flavour but it was delectable. I'm actually quite impressed that such a simple dish can taste so delicious! Squeeze the lime given and mix with a little of sambal chili to get the perfect combination! This is a MUST TRY dish that I recommend! Thumbs up! 



Price: $10.00

Fried sotong a.k.a calamari is a side dish that you cannot miss out! Though it looks like any other fried food that you may think it's unhealthy, it is actually not that greasy and it was crispy. It was super addictive and best eaten when it is hot. Dip with the mayonnaise it brings out a full flavour when eaten. The bloggers that attended the food tasting finished the whole plate and we even ordered another plate for second serving! It's like after you take a bite of it, you would want to go for another.  I think $10 is worth getting it! 


Price: $12.00

I am not really into spicy food because my tolerance for spiciness is only 3/10 but my mum always tell me if you don't know how to eat spicy food then you are not a true Singaporean. I wonder what she said was true or not, but I don't believe lololol!! I gave this dish a try and surprisingly it's actually a 5/10, still can tahan! Overall, this dish was alright, it taste like any other ordinary kang kong.


Price: $16.00 (L) 

Honestly, the chicken wings tasted alright but something I really wanna comment that the chicken wings were really dry! It does not really appeals to my likings but maybe it is just my personal preference. Maybe some of you guys like dry chicken wings but there is still room for improvement. Despite it's dryness, I really like how the wings are fried perfectly and the meat was tender just that it was a bit dry! 


Price: $9.00 

How can you possibly miss out omelette egg when having zi char! The portion was at an average size and can be shared among 4-6 persons. It only consists of prawns and they were not stingy at all but gave quite a generous amount of prawn in the omelette.

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam!

Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
