While browsing through the menu, we were given a complimentary starter of crispy Fish Skin Crackers. It was crispy and the taste was good. Almost reminiscent of the crispy chicken skin that I used to buy in food stalls at the mall.

We ordered a couple of items from the menu and while waiting for our food to arrive, I decided to take pictures of the hand-pulled noodles being prepped in the kitchen. Its always nice to see that the tradition of hand-pulled noodles is still alive and well.

The first to arrive on our table is the Century Egg. It came with a drizzle of sauce and chopped bell peppers. A fresh new take on the usual mundane Century Egg presentation.

Next to arrive is the Chinese Olive Fried Rice. All of us agreed that the taste was unique and delicious. The greens provided the right crunch and the rice was firm and not oily at all. This is one of the best fried rice I have ever tried in recent memory.

We also ordered the Salt and Pepper Squid. The squid was perfectly cooked and was not rubbery at all unlike the other ones found in other Chinese restaurants. The squid also perfectly compliments the Chinese Olive Fried Rice.

Up next is Mark's all time favorite Tausi Spareribs. The meat was soft and flavorful. Their version is good and can give other restaurant versions a run for their money.

Up next is China's order of A1 Braised Beef Dry Noodles. The noodles were freshly made and the taste was truly awesome. The beef was soft and extremely tasty. Now I know why this is one of Kanzhu's best seller.

It was followed by T's order of Pork & Chive Dumpling Noodle Soup. The broth was great and has a hint of cilantro which gave freshness to the overall taste. It came with 4 big (Or was it 5) pieces of Pork and Chive Dumplings and a saucer of black vinegar for dip.

Kanzhu also has the Chinese restaurant staple of Chili Sauce. Their Chili Sauce was quite thick but lacks heat for some reason but was still good nonetheless.
You can check out their menu on their Facebook page. I am also posting copy of their menu here for your immediate reference. You may click the images below for a larger view.
Overall, our dinner at Kanzhu was great. The food was awesome and we enjoyed everything that we ordered especially the noodles. The price was affordable and the service was efficient aside from the place being clean and well lit.
