Dian Xiao Er 店小二

It had been a couple of weeks since we went to the Airport T3. It used to be a regular hangout as it has many eateries, shopping and spacious ground for family with children to have fun.

Today, we went to the airport and Dian Xiao Er (店小二) was our dining choice. I appreciate the good customer service provided by all the employees on duty today. Rare to find a restaurant with a team of attentive crews on any other day (based on previous experiences at different restaurants).

They have a good selection of ala carte dishes. If you cannot decide, you can choose their set menus starting from SGD$43 (before GST and service charge) for 2 pax onwards.

Anyway, we decided to go for ala carte since the set menus do not have a combination of dishes which I wanted to order.

1. Ten Wonder Duck (十全鸭)

Their specialty duck comes in 3 different herbal selection which are equally yummy. Honestly, I do not favour duck meat but their herbal braise duck captures my attention, especially yummy by dipping into their chilli sauce only available with dine-in. It is a Must Try!!


2. Poached Spinach

A common dish found in many chinese restaurants nowadays. Many restaurants include 3 different eggs (century egg, salted duck egg and egg) to make the dish stand out.


3. Fried Cod Fish (炸鳕鱼)

I have tried cod fish (normally steamed) in a couple of restaurants but they always have the “flaky” texture and “strong” taste which turn me off. Decided to give this fried cod fish a try (cod fish is good for children due to its high fatty acid component) again as I had it once at their Vivocity Outlet but it turned me off then. It turned out to be super tasty with its crispness on the outside and tenderness on the inside. Not forgetting their black sauce which lifted the taste of the cod fish. Kudo to the chef who cooked my order!!


4. Soup of the Day & Double-Boiled Wintermelon Soup

Today’s Soup of the Day was Sze Chuan Vege with Pork Ribs (四川菜排骨汤) which is a twisted version to the Salted Vege Duck Soup (咸菜鸭汤). Nonetheless, it suits Hubby’s tastebud.


Ordered a D-Boiled Wintermelon Soup for myself to share with baby. The wintermelon, dried scallops and pork gave the soup its mild sweetness, suitable for the health conscious.


I enjoyed my dinner and during payment, the crew was asking for my opinion on the food and also informed me that if there was any dish which I have issue with upon tasting, I can request for a replacement. I appreciate the crew who informed me as sometimes when we find faults with the dish, more than often we do not voice it out due to “fear of rejection” and “embarrassment” by some nasty F&B employees.

So hereby, I highly recommend you to patronize Dian Xiao Er situated at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3, Level 3 (opposite Thai Express).
