went back to tunglok signature @ orchard parade on 29.11.2013. was raining so wanted car park with shelter & did not want to go far. 🙂
amex palate privileges 50% for 2pax only for ala carte on weekdays so we explored the menu.
we decided to try the specials – a fish soup S$38. the soup was excellent! very smooth, sweet, tasty. 🙂 it was expensive though. the portion was similar to a 1/2 pot of lie tong (例汤) which cost S$14 – served 1.5 to 2 bowls each for 2pax. probably better off with the lie tong.
the lamb rack came with onion ring & tomato. it was very good too. lamb was very tender w/o strong taste, equal to the best among good western restaurants. the mildly sweet sauce was a nice change from the usual mint sauce too. 🙂
the mixed vegetable (top photo) was an excellent vegetarian dish. on this night it was a bit oily, but otherwise very good.
& the lobster ramen in superior sauce was heavenly. i had lobster noodles often at hua ting some years back when i had the alacarte card as it was very good. but this was even better! ramen was very nice too, especially the texture/bite. 🙂
& we rounded up with the really enjoyable 雪中情怀mango pomelo dessert with 2 scoops of ice cream. we asked to change the usual vanilla to coconut ice cream – very nice indeed! 🙂
the dinner was S$172 before discount. i wouldn’t do this at such prices. with 50% palate discount it was S$86 & a very good price for such fine dinner. the weekend lobster 6-course set though was even better as it included the 2 best dishes – lobster ramen & 雪中情怀 – plus other great dishes!
