When it comes to having zi char in a place that feels like home, you don’t have to look further than Gu Ma Jia, which literally translates into ‘my aunt’s home’. And it couldn’t be more aptly-named! I loved the warm cozy feel of the place, family pictures hanging on the walls, and watching Gu Ma herself bustling in and out of the kitchen as she checks on you and makes sure the dishes are served up in a timely fashion.

Overall: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ – $$$

Gu Ma started out as a hawker selling wanton mee and chicken rice more than 30 years ago. And after that, because of her passion for food and love of experimentation, she decided to start her own restaurant with all the dishes she had created. Her vision was to cook delicious homecooked dishes for families to enjoy. And boy did we enjoy this heartwarming meal.
