Some people choose to have zi char at their neighbourhood joint, while others cross the country (and even the causeway) in search of the best fish head curry, sweet and sour pork and other wok hei-infused dishes. But with more zi char joints turning to delivery platforms, you can get hor fun, fried rice, prawn paste chicken and all your other local favourites delivered straight to your door. Check these options out for the next time you're planning a feast for the whole family.
