|Different Taste Cafe & Restaurant @ Frankel Ave|
It come at a surprise to me when I received a tasting invitation for Different Taste Cafe and Restaurant ('DTCR'). I passed by Frankel Avenue often and even dine at the pizzeria nearby a few times, but I never noticed any Zi Char place there.
Apparently, the restaurant started from a cafe in a local bowling centre, and expanded to a full fledge restaurants with three outlets islandwide.

We started the dinner with Penang Fried Kuey Teow ($5.50). One of the dishes that come highly recommended and it is a must try dish here. It has a solid Wok Hei (breath of the wok) and well fried as each strain of rice noodle are coated with eggs. The prawns are crunchy and the squid is springy yet tender. The heat from the chilli is sufficient for me, but if you need more, you can always add the sambal. Comparable to the Char Kway Teow in Penang indeed.

Curry Fish Head (S - $20, M - $26, L - $34). The signature dish of DTCR. A solid curry fish head, filled with delicious spices. Not much lemak as what you would expect from a peranakan version, but the tanginess really hits the spot. More like an Assam Fish Head instead of curry. Definitely best eaten with rice.
