Fei Chang Hao in Kallang
It looks like the thin rice rolls at Hong Kong-style chee cheong entertainment are more popular than ever, with stalls such as Chief Wei HK Cheong Fun and Wei Chee Cheong Fun Pin attract loyal customers. Here to join the party is Fei Changhaofounded by a former chef Tim Ho Wan.
Unlike most fun chee cheong stalls with a simpler menu, Fei Chang Hao’s menu has an impressive 30 dishes, with a respectable range of rice rolls, dim sum and congee.
Fei Chang Hao stands out from other fun chee cheong stalls because of their ribbon-style chee cheong fun, in which the thin sheets of rice rolls are scraped to fold over each other.
The most expensive fun chee cheong dish here is the Ying Yong Rice Roll ($4.80)but its price is definitely justified.
The thin rice rolls wrap an abundance of lettuce, arctic char and shrimp, ensuring you get what you pay for.
One of the most popular fun chee cheong dishes here is the You Tiao Rice Roll ($3.90)aka zha leong.
Crispy you tiao rolls are wrapped in the rice roll, before soy sauce is poured over it.
When it lands on your plate, all nicely sliced for easy spooning, this dish pulls off the feat of crispy you tiao with silky smooth rice rolls, bound together by the taste of soy sauce.
Of course, you can always go with the Traditional rice roll ($3.20).
Here, the flavor of the light soy sauce mixture can shine through, while the thin rice rolls dutifully soak up all of its goodness.
Don’t forget to try one of their dim sum dishes from their large 18-course menu. One of their newly added items is the Free hot and spicyAKA hong you chao shou, which goes to $2.40 for four and $4.80 for six.
A tight package of ground pork and silky skin, this dish is on the spicier end of the spectrum.
Another popular dim sum item is the Shrimp and Pork Siew Mai ($3.30).

This dish, along with a handful of their other dim sum, is steamed and served in bamboo steamer baskets.
If you find yourself particularly hungry, their Pork congee ($3.20) will do and satisfy you.
Topped with crispy you tiao chunks, peanuts and spring onions, and plenty of pork shreds in each scoop of thick congee, this dish is definitely comforting in a bowl.
