Di Wei Teochew Restaurant

Di Wei Teochew Restaurant is one of the F&B located in Seletar Aerospace housed in a former Colonial British Bungalow. Di Wei specializes in Teochew Cuisine and apparently has been quite reputable for their authenticity in Teochew Cuisine via words of mouth.

As the trip to Di Wei Teochew Restaurant was an impromptu decision, there was no reservation made and their indoor seatings were full. Therefore we were told to take the outdoor seating.

While I'm expecting to sink myself in some Authentic Teochew Food and environment, our orders were taken by a waitress that spoke to us in Mandarin with a Cantonese accent then followed by the Cantonese dialect. That instantly threw my mood away and made me set a lower expectation in a Teochew restaurant.

The outdoor seating that we were at was spacious and airy. Since we are only the customers sitting outside, it made us feel privileged, just like we have booked the entire outdoor area.

There are a few variations of Yam Ring, Sweet & Sour Pork, Chicken, Large Prawn or Pork Ribs.
We took the recommended selection from the menu. The pork ribs were evenly coated with sweet sauce and were tender to chew on together with the crispy Yam ring. This dish was delectable.

Pork Rib Yam Ring 排骨芋卷- $25

We started off with their Signature Teochew Liver Roll. The presentation of the roll looks similar to Ngoh Hiong with its crispy fried beancurd skin wrapping up the fillings. 

Teochew Liver Roll 潮州式干花 - $12 Per Roll

It is to pair with the sweet sauce given. Though it is good, I'm still not used to the gamey taste of the liver.

Well executed with some tasty gravy, not salty and can be eaten alone without pairing with white rice. The plate consists of carrots, broccoli, mushroom and scallops.

Stir-Fried Broccoli & Scallops 带子炒西兰花 - $18

One of us was excited to try out the Teochew Braised Shark's Fin and we ordered a personal portion for sharing.

Teochew Braised Shark's Fin 潮州小鲍翅 - $28 (Per Pax)

For the portion, the ingredients were generous and taste was delighting.

No doubt that the Grouper Fish Porridge is the restaurant's recommendation, the regulars will prefer to order their Pomfret Fish Porridge instead. Though we are just an hour into their business operations for the day, their Pomfret Fish Porridge was already sold out.

The Teochew Style Porridge had left a big impression on me as their porridge was not the usual ones we often had from the porridge stall. Traditionally, this ethnic style of preparation is having rice in soup. Even as a Teochew, I seldom had such Porridge. 

Fish Soup was excellently done. I love the light and fragrant taste of such porridge with ingredients none other than slices of grouper fish, seaweed, coriander, preserved mustard and ginger strips.

My Serving

The Teochew Oyster Omelette is fluffy and topped with a handful of Oysters. It was also good to pair with the sweet and sour chilli given.

Washing the food down with a glass of Water Chestnut and we decided to head towards Hangar66 for some desserts.

Water Chestnut - $2.80

The Standard of food is good, however, there were only these dishes that we ordered. I'm still looking forward to dining in the next round and enjoying their Pomfret Fish Porridge which was sold out. Not only that, I will like to try out more on their traditional Teochew dishes that is quite rare in the in market.
