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…
chao inn 潮楼, like the other taoheung group restaurants, has a electronic queueing system. 🙂
we waited 2 minutes. 🙂
place not really packed at 9pm.
there’s a special soup chicken feet 粉葛soup for HK$19.
it was was very good really, tasty!
we ordered just 1 soup as we were greedy & intended to order 2 fish. haha! 🙂
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.
this one, the meat just fell off the skin/scales.
the braised goose was quite ok, above average, good flavours, just slightly tough.
but that’s a long way from the yat lok roast goose kind of satisfaction.
we wanted the big eye snapper 大目紅鰱but it was sold out. so we had the yellow croaker 小黄鱼.
it was super good too. we still placed the mullet 乌鱼tops!^^
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！
i took the 杨枝甘露. it was just HK$16.
as good as the 许留山 and maybe cheaper? the whole dinner was HK$213 = S$37nett. so good!
