had a most shiok teochew “her bun” dinner at chao inn 潮楼 at kwun tong on 3.6.2015….超爽!^^

after 9pm, they have 打冷 40% discounts 6折. so it was great value too! 🙂

don’t usually want to take teochew porridge (expensive & not nice) or even teochew “her bun” (expensive & not great) in Singapore. this one at Chao Inn (潮楼)super nice…

we had 2 fish, 1 braised goose, 1 soup + 1 dessert = HK$213nett=about S$37nett.^^

the mullet 乌鱼 was really, really good! the best!^^ it was so sweet & fresh. i used to take a bit with my sister at lao ah tee 老亚弟 at whampoa boon keng which was good too, but not quite so tasty & a bit more fishy. i did that myself at home too, same.

the braised goose was quite ok, above average, good flavours, just slightly tough.

in singapore, unlike mullet 乌鱼, yellow croaker 小黄鱼flesh is more tender & softer & falls apart when you pick up with a chopstick. not so here, it held up quite nicely.

maybe it was just chilled..冻乌鱼 & 冻小黄鱼!

杨枝甘露

i took the 杨枝甘露. it was just HK$16.
