Hey I didn't know this Qi Ji chain is the one that the famous popiah stall at Sim Lim Square belongs to. Previous experiences with Qi Ji were not that impressive, especially the Bugis Village branch. So I did not have too much expectations for the Shaw Tower one, although someone mentioned it was better. Fortunately, it was! Much more flavourful, moist and satisfying.
Hubby liked their chee cheong fun (rice rolls with sweet sauce and sesame seeds). I thought it tasted rather processed or mass-produced though. Slightly oversteamed (too soft) for my liking.
They also have nasi lemak, mee siam and other dishes. This Qi Ji shop is popular with office workers at lunchtime. I managed to spill some sambal sauce onto some office lady's pristine white cuff. Oops! I couldn't apologise enough but I don't think it helped. :P
