the white beehoon 白米粉 was supposedly their signature?

somehow i did not see the dish on the food pictures displayed all around.

it was wetter than what i expected, so at first i thought it was mee sua..

all those who had taken the dish here many times felt that this evening it was not as good as usual, probably because it was a much bigger serving. one friend went back a few days later & shared on whatsapp that his one person portion was a lot better. 🙂

anyway i thought it was still a very good dish, great taste, though i was also not too wowed with it, just a pretty good beehoon. not quite in the category of say crab beehoon though.

just for comparison, say a crab beehoon at kam jia zhuang, which is a lot tastier, is also wet but not swimming in sauce.

we had a 当归焗盐鸡.

the ginger sauce was nice, the chicken though not too bad actually, was kind of underwhelming… meat a bit dry…

so many nice chicken rice in singapore…though different preparation, a 盐焗鸡must be good standard to be comparable.

another friend (1 of 2 who bought dinner) had his daughter made us a blueberry yogurt cake.

nice too. i like it. brought some back too.

overall great fun & a very nice evening out with old friends.

the dinner cost S$262 for 10pax, kind of a bit on the high side.

a friend bought a nice dinner at jin hock seafood restaurant金福, ST 82 Coffee House, Block 844 Tampines Street 82. 

my friends had been eating white beehoon白米粉 there quite a lot. 🙂

so i thought i gave it a try too. 🙂

i prepared gravy using chicken stock, a bit of yellow onions & chinese cabbage, and reduced it so it’s very tasty. & i fried the prawns & sotong in butter separately.

ran out of beehoon though, & didn’t want to go out just to get it. asked a friend & he brought a 500g packet with him. i used about 100g. soaked in water.

when serving, i added the beehoon, added oyster sauce, fish sauce, cornflour & stewed 炆! voila!

it was tasty…pretty ok for a first gazak attempt…it’s more seafood taste, not quite like the jin hock white beehoon白米粉 which also had cuttlefish & pork…

will try it next time with prawns, cuttlefish & pork.
