See also my update on 28.10.2013.
P.S. there was another S$156 4pax 7-course set promotion at ah yat @ turf city but this was still better!
this was a superb 8-course set at chao yue xuan and for just S$38 + S$2.50++pax for peanuts, tea & towels.
in terms of quality of ingredients & taste, it was quite superior to the value lobster set i had there previously. i would say it was equal or even better than the fine dining lobster & abalone set at xin cuisine.
the 5 of us were there at 1pm on 21.8.2013, the restaurant was 1/2 full & we had a table at a private corner.
the starter was a shredded chicken in sesame salad. it was good, tasty & the helping was rather large.
next we had star garoupa fillet with beer in hot stone pot (the ala carte price for this dish alone was S$28++), & it was very good, very tasty & the fish fillet were excellent.
the braised whole yoshihama abalone was top quality, excellent in taste & bite & it came with 花胶(fishmaw) & brocoli.
the 1/2 baked lobster (top photo) was again par excellence, very very tasty with the superior soup.
same with the pan-fried kurobuta pork chop. i thought it looked & tasted like a galbi beef rib cut served in majestic restaurant but the menu said kurobuta. anyhow taste was great!
the poached vegetable with beancurd skin was also very good. i supposed by comparison the ee-fu noodles was ordinary, but it was still a good, not poor, dish.
& the snow fungus with date dessert was refreshing & enjoyable too…really every item was good & i could only sing praises – such excellent ingredients & preparation for soup, lobster, abalone & kurobuta. actually i think it was an incredible deal at S$38 + S$2.50++pax= about S$41nett. i have already bought more vouchers to go back!
