Quan Xiang Yuan (Jing Ji) Seafood Restaurant @ Jalan Besar

Although there is quite a number of Hokkien Chinese in Singapore, but most of the Chinese restaurants located here are Cantonese restaurants. Only a few traditional Hokkien restaurants continues to flourish today, and Quan Xiang Yuan is one of the few left.

Started our Hokkien dinner with a platter of crispy prawn rolls mix and match with tangy pork liver slices. The pork over was tender and did not have any "internal organs" taste. The tangy sauce went well with the liver. Prawn Fritters (Har Chor) was crispy on the outside, and juicy in the inside.

Like the big bowl of Fish Maw Soup. Chokeful of ingredients and can fill about 8 bowls.

Simple Chinese spinach with minced garlic.

Another of their star dish - Braised Pork with Lotus Buns. The pork was really tender and went well with the soft lotus buns.

We also enjoyed the Yam Ring with minced prawns and chicken.

A very old-school traditional Hokkien restaurant. Price is really reasonable (one of the cheapest) and the whole place is air-con. Reservations on weekends are a must.

  1. thanks for the recommendation! going to bring my parents there soon!

    1. I have dined there once. Food was mediocre. The state of the toilet and the ice box at the back door exit will ensure you never patronise the restaurant again.

  2. They have a newer outlet nearer to City Square Mall just along Kitchener Road.
