This restaurant is not a new discovery though it has been almost a year since I last visited it. And during the absence, it has expanded! Very good business indeed. They are maybe most known for their poon choy which I have tried once and surrendered in defeat to the copious amount of meat in that one dish.
One of their signature dishes is the Kampung Chicken (白斩鸡) which is served with a gingery dip. The salty but silky chicken slices are tender and juicy and a great accompaniment to the steaming white rice.
We never fail to order this stir-fried noodles (车仔面) which uses the fine emperor noodles. Stir fried with a chockful of ingredients such as prawns, mushroom, chicken, egg, spring onions etc, it’s delicious and flavourful. One of our family’s firm favourite.
This is Claypot Salted Fish with Pork Belly(咸鱼花腩煲). It’s a very aromatic and tasty dish that is sure to have one asking for more rice. The meat has a crispy edge to it, thanks to the high heat of a very hot wok.
The Seafood Claypot (海鲜煲) had a generous amount of cuttlefish, sea cucumber, fish slices, fish maw, pacific clams, prawns, mushrooms, assortment of vegetables etc. It was really well-seasoned and even the cuttlefish, which is normally bland-tasting tasted great.
My aunt is also sure to order the Claypot Grass Carp (瓦堡鲩鱼) everytime we frequent this restaurant. It’s very fresh and tastes a little muddy to me this time. However, don’t remember this taste the other times and was totally loving it. Worth a try indeed.
Our vegetable dish for the night was Stir-fried Kai Lan. It had a hint of chinese wine, which I love.
Overall, a good place for a family dinner as the food is good. Waiting time can be long if you’re there during the dinner crowd so good conversation helps. Lol.
