Teck Sings a well-known Malaysian Chinese restaurant among both Singaporeans and Johorean. Located at Taman Sentosa, it is just a 15-minute drive from the Causeway.
The restaurant is air-conditioned. It was a weekend afternoon when I was there and there was only one table left. From what I observed, 40% of the patrons are Singaporeans.
Teck Sing specializes in Paper Baked Chicken/藥材紙包雞 (RM 20/SGD 7.80) According to my Malaysian friend, Teck Sing uses Kampung Chicken and the chicken is wrapped and baked for several hours in herbs, which explained the aroma of Chinese herbs once you tear the paper.
Paper Baked Chicken: (8/10)
I ordered the Hot Plate Ota (RM 12/SGD 4.70). I really like it despite the hot plate ota not being their signature dish. Since the ota is on a hot plate, I like the perfect crisp on the outside while remains soft on the inside.
Hot Plate Ota: 7.5/10
Next up is Deep Fried Sotong in Thai Style (RM 15/ SGD 5.90). which my Johorean friend highly recommended. "Sotong" means squid in Malay. The deep fried sotong actually tasted average. However, dip it with the sauce and you will experience gastrorgasm!
Deep Fried Sotong in Thai Style: 9/10
