we decided to take chinese since the next day we are having japanese at chotto matte.
& we did not want to have outdoor zi char becos of the unhealthy haze, so we went to xin cuisine again on 25.10.2015. 🙂
we had a very nice lie tong 例汤 the last time here. this time they had the chinese liang teh base 凉茶, so we decided to try couple other soup.
the seafood sweet & sour soup 酸辣汤 – S$9 was very good standard, fragrant & also lots of seafood ingredients.
i would say a very good soup except this kind of gluey soup & just a bit sweet (though it was ok for this type of soup) for me not really my preference.
this soup actually had lots of lobster bits. the soup itself (ie the stock base) was also very tasty, but again the gluey texture not my favourite.
at S$18 i am not sure i would order it again, the lie tong 例汤 or the seafood sweet & sour soup 酸辣汤, at S$9 made a lot more sense. 🙂
this tea infused duck is a must-have at xin cuisine.
the duck was so flavourful, you could smell the aroma of the tea fragrance when the dish was served & on the table. 🙂
we ordered 1/2 duck for 2pax. it was a large portion but we still finished everything. 🙂
wife did not want too much carb items so we ordered just 1 loster noodles to share.
i must say this was extremely good, very tasty, both lobster & noodles were good.
i must definitely order this again the next visit.
we had the dried mustard vegetable with small cabbage 梅菜烹娃娃菜 – S$18 again.
this was really an excellent dish. the 梅菜was so flavourful.
i must really try to do a 梅菜 dish at home. in fact today when i was in sheng shiong i bought 1 packet of the dried 梅菜.
we shared 1 dessert.
wife didn’t quite like it.
for me it was perfectly ok. lime sorbet was great, so was the aloe vera jelly, very refreshing. i do agree with my wife that the couple dessert we took at tunglok signature were better.
for the dinner, we only spent S$67 after 50% amex palate discounts for 2pax.
it was really an excellent meal for that price. ^^
