Tai Er 太二酸菜鱼

The craze for Chinese grilled fish and Sauerkraut fish has gained popularity over the years. Ever since Tai Er's opening, it was seen that the restaurant is always swarmed with patrons. Tai Er 太二酸菜鱼 is famous for its preserved vegetables and Fish and has a few outlets in Singapore.

What's on the wall?

Starting off with the meal, there is a free-flow tea station where we can make our own proportion of Roselle Orange Peel Tea which is good to cleanse the palette.

The OX Tongue was recommended by my friend who knew that it was my first try on such a dish. Loaded with sesame seed and chilli sauce, the sliced beef as well as the ox tongue dish was not too bad.

With a spacious environment, it gives diners comfortable dining settings. 


We had Suan Cai and Fish which is good for 1-2 pax. We also added ingredients such as $3 for glass noodles and $3 for Bamboo Shoots. Slices of thick tilapia were spotted with dried chillies, peppercorns and chrysanthemum. If you sink the ladle deeper into the bottom bowl, you will notice that the bowl was loaded with preserved vegetables. The fish was soft, tender, fresh and addictive.

I love the fact that the dish was appetizing and not filled with overpowering chilli and peppercorns as compared to Mala.

Apart from the main dish, we had the Seaweed Roll with Salted Egg Yolk. The seaweed was deep-fried and crispy with a good salted egg yolk flavour.

A packet of tissue paper is provided and the wrapper was designed with illustrations and writeups of how "Tai Er" comes about.


While there are a few outlets now and the crowd in Tai Er is getting manageable. For those who enjoy Suan Cai and Fish, do try out this popular place and rate it yourself.
