this the second time i have curry rice lunch here at hoower food court, a coffeshop on haig road, on 14.4.2016. ^^
that time was after i sent my shantou nephew & his family (wife +12yr old daughter) to airport.
this time we a bit earlier at about 12pm (i went for a short 6km run this morning…didn’t have much time so could not do it earlier in any case).
the last we ordered 4 dishes for 2pax for S$10 all-in. this time we also ordered 4 dishes (not much choice/dishes left) for 4pax which came to S$22 all-in. the curry chicken had 2 wings more so like double portion.
overall it was ok la…
i liked the curry chicken best. i asked for more curry & mopped up most of it.
the sweet & sour fish was pretty good too.
the deep-fried garoupa was done ok, not dry, and the tomato sauce with pineapples quite well done, so the dish was overall quite tasty. i considered one of the better sweet & sour dishes which i don’t order often (there were not many choices/dishes to order).
a friend liked the kong bak best. i had considered to order additional portion. this time it was just ok for me, so did not add more.
the cabbage was quite well done, quite tasty.
the dishes were all quite ok. & the prices were still ok. so overall pretty ok, still a place i don’t mind coming back. only constraint is that the choices/dishes a bit limited (the OMO stall lady is also the one who cooks, so not easy to manage too many dishes & also wastage, so basically she does it in such a way that basically all the dishes are sold out).
but the important thing about any dish is it must taste good, & the dishes here taste good. 🙂
after lunch, we went went to the friend’s house for drinks & cake.
the friend made drinks from some plant leaves. he gave me some to bring home.
one friend is a flora expert, so he dig out some technical info on the plant…sound like martian to me la…
i like the drink. somehow i felt i had taken it before & remembered the taste. must be long ago.
a friend brought the macha cake he made. it was pretty good, not to sweet. he was looking to perfect it a bit more, maybe increasing the macha tea powder to have a stronger flavour.
later another friend came & brought me some yamashita cake.
had a good time with my OPS friends but had to leave/rush for another appointment.
