Tai Er 太二酸菜鱼: Famous Spicy and Sour Sichuan Cuisine from China

With 3 outlets in Singapore currently, Tai Er is a popular restaurant chain that specializes in Sichuan cuisine. They are especially famous for their Sauerkraut Fish dish, also known as Suan Cai Yu, which is a flavorful and aromatic dish consisting of spicy and sour fish stew, fresh fish, pickled cabbage, chili peppers, and a variety of spices. As a fan of Chinese cuisine, I must say that it was a wonderful culinary experience.

The presentation of the fish hotpot was wonderful, with slices of plump tilapia, dried chillies, peppercorns, and sauerkraut soaked in a large bowl of flavorful and aromatic broth. The tender and juicy fish meat was deeply infused with the bold and spicy flavors of the broth. The sauerkraut was tangy and sour, which provided a refreshing contrast to the spiciness of the broth. The combination of the two flavors created a harmonious balance that was both satisfying and delicious.

Other favorites include the Yummy Steamed Chicken with Chilli Sauce and Egg Coated Glutinous Rice with Brown Sugar.

Overall, I highly recommend Tai Er's Suan Cai Yu to anyone who loves Chinese dishes with spicy and sour flavors. It is a dish that is both delicious and satisfying, and it is sure to be a hit with anyone who tries it. If you are looking for a new and exciting dish to try, make sure to give Tai Er's Sauerkraut Fish a try. You won't be disappointed!
