had dinner with wife on 31.1.2016. ^^
friends were watching djokovic murray austrialian open tennis finals…
we wanted to go to a nearby place & decided on hong kong street old chun kee 香港街老珍记 at commonwealth crescent…..
don’t know if the original one still at level 2 of the commonwealth crescent food centre? did not check…
place was well patronised at 6.45pm on a sunday.
the picture menu showed the food items & prices. made it quite easy.
wife didn’t really like their signature dishes like black bean sauce song fish head or bitter gourd.
we ordered their signature fish head thick beehoon soup, a tofu dish & a fish maw soup.
their signature fish head thick beehoon soup was pretty good.
maybe it was not as intense & flavourful as Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hun Restaurant 荷兰村XO鱼头米粉酒楼, but then we did not ask for the XO version..
still it was a tasty dish, lots of meat fish head pieces & the best of the 3 dishes we ordered, & the cheapest at S$5, 🙂
the tofu dish was ok but just ordinary.
nothing much to say really. at least it was quite passable.
i was of course thinking of the excellent fish maw soup at beng thin.
but alas, this was NOT!
not that it was a bad soup. it was passable, but really starchy, gluey stuff…
dinner was S$25nett for 2pax no service no GST. ok but totally average except for the fish head beehoon soup.
but then we did not order the signature dishes so not a very good representation of the food.
i checked they are closed for 1st 4 days of cny & prices are different of day 7. my china relatives are visiting so i may likely bring them here to try out the dishes again.
