Well, it was Saturday night and a rather free night. So, KayaButter, together with Butter’s sister and her boyfriend went out for a zhu char/zhu chao dinner at Joo Huat Restaurant.
Zhu Char/Zhu Chao or Singaporeans love to call it as Zi Char. Zhu Char/Zhu Chao/Zi Char literally means cook and fry in English. Zhu Char/Zi Char is in Hokkien and Zhu Chao is in Mandarin. Zhu Char is a Chinese stall selling all kinds of home-style dishes in ala-carte style. You can order many kinds of Chinese dishes depending on the stall’s menu and available ingredients. Usually, zhu char is quite economical but it depends also on which kind of dish you order. 😛
