Long Ji Da Pai Dang 龍記大排档 – You Have to Try The Crab Bee Hoon (Moved)

Met the class peeps for dinner and I suggested Long Ji even though I have never been there before, neither have they heard of it before. But this name is rather well-known so we were glad to get a table (and also reserved their crabs) that evening. This coffeeshop is located off Tiong Bahru market, right next to Tiong Bahru bakery which makes a good landmark to find

Sichuan Hot & Sour Soup $16 (M)

Decided to go the unconventional way. Maybe not the best choice but the soup was interesting..

Their signature dish

So good, it deserves another shot

I really love the flavourful broth packed with so much substance. The bee hoon was infused with the sweet and earthy broth and the sweet crab meat was firm and had a nice texture

Black Pepper Crab, Seasonal Price

The friends wanted the black pepper, and it was finger licking good. Punchy pepper taste with a sweet aftertaste, it was so delicious

The menu at Long Ji isn’t the most extensive but I think the quality makes up for it. And cos there were so many of us, we only paid $26 each. I’m glad the friends enjoy the food as much, and it is definitely worth a revisit. And being located in tiong bahru area, there were lots of place to chill post-dinner. So if you are looking for some good zi char place, I think Long Ji is pretty decent
