One of their signature dishes is KL Hokkien Mee ($4.50). This dark colour noodle dish made popular in KL but well-liked by diners in Singapore as well. The version at CTC uses thick noodles like the one in KL, which have a QQ texture with a solid noodle bite in it. It is stir-fried with pork lard and pork oil, covered with thick, sweet and tasty dark soy sauce to inducing the signature Wok Hei together with the umami punch. If you are a huge fan of pork lard like us, you might want to ask for more when you order this dish.

Marmite Chicken ($10 for Small, $14 for Medium, $18 for Large). Diced chicken thigh meat cooked with marmite sauce. The chicken is tender and succulent, while the marmite sauce really shines and absorbs into the chicken. You can easily finish one plate of rice with this dish alone. I called it a “rice thief” dish.

Nyonya (Assam) Fish Head ($20). We had a choice of curry fishhead or assam fishhead, which are their speciality. We decided on the latter. At first, I was sceptical as I saw the fishhead are not fully cover with assam sauce. So, I tried to spread the sauce evenly on the fish.

Nyonya (Assam) Fish Head
The fishhead is fresh and the assam sauce is thick and intense. I like the tanginess from the chopped pineapple, tomato and the sharp flavour from the lemon leaf. To my surprise, the assam sauce manage to penetrate into the fish meat. It was a very good dish and the sauce goes well with a plate of white rice.

Jiang Nan Sheng Mian ($6). LD favourite Tze Char dish. The egg noodle is fried till crispy and covered with seafood egg gravy. The gravy is filled with solid seafood flavour and the gooey texture helps it to cling on to the noodles. Yum Yum.

Imperial Prosperity Chicken (帝王富贵鸡). One of the dishes that is in the pipeline. The kampong chicken is steamed with Chinese herbs such as Dang Gui (当归), goji berry (杞子), Yu zhu (玉竹), Pao shen (泡参), Dang shen (当参) and many more. The chicken is tender, succulent and the flesh easily fall off the bones. The best part of the dish is the broth that is infused with the Chinese herbs and essence of the chicken. It is savoury, gelatinous and tastes healthy. Superb.
