had 3pax dinner with my sis & b-i-l at ah yat abalone forum restaurant at hotel grand pacific last evening on 18.10.2014. 🙂 last time i came here was when a friend had his birthday dinner on 16.7.2014.
#1 the soup was good. the lobster claw was quite tasteless, but the soup stock was good & tasty. i felt that the cooking here at ah yat abalone was generally better than the other ah yat outlets.
#2 braised abalone & mushroom in brown sauce was very good. abalone was 2in size & had excellent texture & bite. the brown sauce was excellent!
was not expecting much with the #3 fish fillet japanese style but it was good. fish was firm & bouncy & batter was good. the sauce was just right & not overpowering.
& i finished the entire #4 braised yee meen noodles despite my usual low carb preference, meaning it was good. very tasty for a plain vegetarian dish! excellent! 🙂
desssrt was a #5 bird’s nest in almond cream. it was competent but bird’s nest does not register much with me, non-descript. almond cream was smooth. maybe i would be able to taste the smoothness better w/o the bird’s nest.
for this dinner, i bought 3xS$28.80pax groupon vouchers. there was a S2.50pax cover charge for tea & towels & a S$3 charge for peanuts (both compulsory charges whether you took or not), which came up to S$12.95. so in total we paid S$33nett pax for the 5-course dinner. quite a good deal.
