Located at the place formerly occupied by Ga Bin Korean Restaurant, My Wokstory Chinese Restaurant offers a wide variety of Chinese dishes with some of their dishes notable for using more unusual ingredients such as kidney. You may have to wait a while for your dishes, particularly when the restaurant is busy, but the wait is worth it.

Though the pieces of chicken in their Spicy Fried Chicken had bones, it was not too difficult to eat the succulent flesh off them. The crisp coating set off the flesh nicely. On the advice of the waiting staff, we chose to order the dish mild. That proved to be a good decision as it already packed quite a spicy punch. Those that are feeling brave can opt to order the dish medium or hot.

Great for helping to cool our palates after consuming the Spicy Fried Chicken, the egg in their Stir-fried Shrimp with Soybean and Shrimp was soft and fluffy with the soybeans adding a bit of bite to the dish. The shrimp imparted a savoury flavour to the dish and there was ample amount of sauce.

Though the Stir-fried Chinese Broccoli included slices of dried chilli, the degree of spiciness is actually quite mild making it ideal for those not used to spicy foods. We were delighted by the vibrant green colour of the Chinese broccoli, which still a bite to it. If you desire the dish to be spicy, you can request for some sliced fresh chilli.

Aside from their main dishes, the restaurant also offers hotpots and a selection of grilled dishes. Hotpots looked to be very popular with their diners and the grilled dishes reminded us of the Chinese barbeque we had at Simon Taste Chinese Restaurant. We plan to return to the restaurant to try their grilled dishes.
