making this quick post for my good RI friend visiting from cupertino USA.
4 of us gathered at uncle leong jurong east for a crabby dinner on 17.12.2015.
i have been here quite recently couple of times. the crab beehoon was perfect every time. & so it was this evening.
so delicious…it was heaven revisited la… 🙂
& this time we got a top-up $3 for beehoon $5 for soup. it was just as good!
we were joking next time we ordered 2 different crab dish & just order a S$8 crab beehoon soup top-up!
my friends liked the 8-treasure pot as well.
one commented “so fresh” & “very tasty”. exactly wat i described the previous times.
the only “wrong order” was the golden sand prawns (milk powder).
since i have already tried the golden pumpkin prawns & the salted egg prawns, i thought might as well try their other signature golden sand prawn dish.
was a mistake actually!
not that it was bad. prawn was large & fresh. but the preparation didn’t work for all of us. milk powder too sweet. i think an ordinary cereal prawns would be better, but golden pumpkin prawns & the salted egg prawns would be best.
chilli crab was not the best order also.
we had some deep-fried mantous 馒头 to soaked up the chilli sauce. mantous 馒头 were good.
crab was tasty, sweet, firm. chilli sauce was ok but i guess not the best. our visiting friend commented, the jumbo chilli crab chilli sauce would be better. i almost forgot how they were like, but probably yes!
we had a lot of fun together, reminiscence our trip to india 30yrs back etc.
in fact last few days we had quite a few get-togethers-
& 2 of us watched a movie before this dinner – star wars the force awakens.
