Hidden in a residential neighborhood of Taman Hijau, Shang Ping Restaurant 香賓餐館 is a friendly neighborhood restaurant that serves familiar Chinese-styled dishes- from a feast fit for whole family to as simple as a plate of Fried Rice, the place has some classic, old-school Hokkien-styled stir fries. The restaurant has been there for at least a decade. There is no fixed menu at Shang Ping, only a white board stating the dishes of the day and by words of mouth. The proprietor will introduce you on some of the signature dishes of theirs. Nothing's new, nothing's fancy, but a simple space for a local, inexpensive meal.

The Three-Flavored Fish was a dish that left us with the deepest impression. It was deep fried till a shattering crisp and served with dark Soy Sauce-based sauce, with heaps of chopped Garlic and Bird's Eye Chilies. While the concoction may be a tad salty on its own, it was perfectly spooned over rice, with an addictive spiciness. The Stir Fried Glass Noodle dish was a little disappointment though, the noodles were drowning in sauce, the texture was too watery to our liking. Other dishes were pretty standard-average, like what you would expect from a local Zhu Char place.
