had a lovely 6-course set menu at min jiang on 13.10.2015.^^
price was ok, as the food turned out pretty good. we had 5pax. 🙂
there were fe customers at lunch.
we skipped tea (normal chinese tea S$3pax no harm to have if need), just had complimentary water.
the edamame was nice.
they charged S$1pax so that was ok.
we selected 醉鸡，咸蛋虾，蒜泥白肉 from the choice of appetizers.
actually it was a friend’s belated birthday, but since she was w/o her reading glasses (haha!), i read out for her veto… 🙂
drunken chicken very good standard.
i think 1 friend said the prawn was very good. this a common item in chinese restaurants, i did not find it particularly special.
the 蒜泥白肉 minced garlic pork was good i guess, but i didn’t find it special too.
the crabmeat fishmaw soup 蟹肉花胶羹 was excellent! really tasty soup.
it was a good serving, though the 花胶was not a whole piece but chopped up.
the key to a good soup is the stock base, and this one was par excellence!
the tea camphor duck was also very flavourful.
excellent duck, though the wrap was so-so.
skin was so crispy & flavourful. and the duck was very tender & moist. one of the best!
the sea perch was also excellent! ^^
texture & taste almost like cod.
we wanted to order some 锅巴dish. the server recommended this popular dried scallop seafood stonepot rice so we had that instead.
it was good! very flavourful & chokeful of ingredients.
the mango sago杨支甘露 was refreshing, good dessert to have though it was just average.
our birthday girl makes a better one actually. haha!
overall, a very good set. the ingredients may not be a good as some of the special promotion set at majestic or tunglok or at xin cuisine, but the cooking was very fine & delivered great tasting dishes.
the only horrendous thing was that i paid S$22.50 for parking & my friend S$20, no carpark redemption. never ever going to park at goodwood park!
