Dine At Home During Circuit Breaker - Si Wei Mao Cai


The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely changed the life of many. I am also getting used to staying home during the circuit breaker measure period which is equivalent to a lock down many countries around the world has implemented to flatten the curve of the pandemic. The good thing is I can order almost anything I feel like eating and get them delivered to my place. I was craving for Sichuan cuisine so I decided to order from Si Wei Mao Cai in Chinatown. I have been to its sister brands but I have never dine there. It is a good opportunity for me to check out their food since I get it delivered to my home.

Preserved Century Egg

I am not sure why foreigners find the Preserved Century Egg acquire but I love them. What the restaurant has done is they have layered it with some chilli oil and seasonings for that extra flavours. I enjoyed the fact the centre of the yolk is still lava, which in my opinion is the essence of the unami flavour. 

Shredded Chicken with Chilli Oil

The Shredded Chicken with Chilli Oil swimming in a pool of chilli oil comes in chicken pieces instead of shredded chicken per the description in the menu. I feel that the chicken meat can be more tender. Otherwise the flavours are spot on.

Mapo Tofu

One of my favourite dishes is the Mapo Tofu. Besides the spicy and mala shiokness, what I like is the distinct flavour of the fermented broad beans coming through the smooth and silky tofu.

Stir Fried Jack Bean

Always remember to have your greens that is what mama will say. Hence being an obedient boy I ordered the Stir Fried Jack Bean. Slightly spicy it still has a nice crunch to it.

Stir Fried Beef with Cumin

Another spices I like in Sichuan cuisine is cumin, hence I could not resist ordering the Stir Fried Beef with Cumin when I see it on the menu. The beef was tender with crunchy green chilli which is actually not hot.

Dine At Home During Circuit Breaker - Shi De Fu Wanton Mee


With the COVID-19 pandemic and the circuit breaker measure, that means I have to stay at home, and I can't go around the island checking out the delicious food offered by various food establishments. We used to say we will travel for good food, but now things have changed, we can actually order them and have them at the comfort of our home with island-wide delivery. One such stall that I got to check out during this period is Shi De Fu Wanton Mee, a hawker stall located at Geylang Bahru Food Centre.

Wanton Mee

One of the signature items at Shi De Fu is their Wanton Mee. The noodles tossed in a chilli concoction has a delightful bite paired with flavourful wanton wrapped in thin wanton skin. It also comes with slices of char siew though the stall does not roast it themselves anymore. The generous serving makes up for the less fatty cut.

Dumpling Soup

We also have the Dumpling Soup. I enjoyed that the dumplings are stuffed with a flavourful mixture of prawn and minced pork, there is even surprise bits of crunchy chestnuts in it.

Fried Dumpling and Wanton

If you like it crispy, you can opt for the Fried Dumpling which has been deep-fried to a golden brown. They also have Fried Wanton too.

Curry Chicken Noodle

Another highlight at Shi De Fu is their Curry Chicken Noodle. The curry was fragrant, thick and creamy. It comes with tau pok, a whole chicken wing and a huge piece of potato. I surprised myself in drinking up the entire bowl of curry.

Braised Chicken Feet

Besides the wanton mee and curry chicken noodle, they also offer dumpling noodle and chicken feet noodle on the menu.

Island-wide delivery is available at Shi De Fu. You can order at
