Salted egg fans were gifted a treat early last year when Xian Dan Chao Ren debuted at Waterway Point, conjuring up tempting food combinations using the golden salty and eggy goodness.
Needless to say, the store has been a hit, and they’ve recently opened a second outlet at Vivocity to cater to people’s salted egg cravings in the area. This year, they are upping the ante by introducing three new ‘heroes’ from the vast seas to their menu.
Meet their new seafood salted egg trio — Prawn, Calamari and Fish Skin! Starting with the Prawn, the moist and tender sweetness from the prawn’s flesh makes for a great complement to the salted egg secret sauce.
The Calamari, a popular dish item at Chinese Zi Char restaurants, also makes an appearance! So now you can quickly fulfil your Zi Char cravings with the buttery goodness from these battered, golden rings.
Finally, the fish skin trend is on the rise, with more and more Potato Chip-like fish skin products lining the shelves of your local supermarket. But why not have it fresh? For Xian Dan Chao Ren’s Fish Skin item, there’s no need to worry about preservatives and powders as it is made on the spot — and you’ll be able to enjoy its extra crispness alongside that delicious salted egg sauce.
These three items are available ala-carte, but if you feel like you have some extra room for more salted egg delight, you can opt to get either the Seafood Duo (S$9.90) with the Prawn and Calamari or the Seafood Platter (S$16.90), which comes with all three of them together.
With Chinese New Year is on the horizon as well, Xian Dan Chao Ren also has something that can bring some reunion delight — especially if your extended family shares your love for salted eggs.
They are introducing their Salted Egg themed CNY Goodie, Buttery Salted Egg Cookies. These cookies are handmade and baked fresh daily, bringing the tremendous salted egg buttery goodness in little ‘melt in your mouth’ pieces; great for sharing around with multiple people!
Each set of cookies cost S$18.90, and you get them by pre-ordering through Xian Dan Chao Ren’s Facebook and Instagram pages or get them directly from their stores — though limited stocks are available.
If you have yet to satisfy your salted egg cravings this 2022, now’s the best time with Xian Dan Chao Ren’s latest set of salted egg goodies!
