Zi Char joint well-known for their house specialty roast duck and char siew (barbecued pork). Set in a nondescript atmosphere, Sum’s menu features around 40 dishes ranging from the selection of Cantonese-style steamed and deep-fried dishes, to local favourites and classic zi char fare. A few highlights include the delicate Chinese Spinach with Three Eggs (from $10), the homely Fried Lettuce with fermented Bean Curd Paste (from $12) and the crispy Deep-fried Bean Curd Skin with 5-spice salt & pepper (from $8) as well as Deep Fried HK Squid with Salt Pepper (from $12).
The one thing that you shouldn’t miss is Sum’s signature Hong Kong-style roast duck (from $12). Paired with a complementing sweet, sticky plum sauce on the side, the spice-infused, glistening roast duck spots a shiny, well-charred skin – not hard to see why this is the restaurant’s crowd-favourite item. Don’t forget about the tender Char Siew (barbecued pork loin, from $8) and also look out for Sum’s homemade Spring Onion & Ginger condiment, we reckon that it goes well even with plain white rice.
