2 primary school friends bought dinner for 10pax this evening on 19.4.2016. ^^
several of them were having this white beehoon 白米粉 quite many times recently & shared the photos on group whatsapp. 🙂
jin hock seafood 金福海鲜菜馆is located at #01-131, 844 Tampines Street 82, 520844. quite easy to get there with google map & parking was no problem at 8pm on a tuesday.
we had twin appetisers. hae chor was good & the duck crepe was quite interesting, a bit sweet but quite nice. 🙂
we had a tiger garoupa hk steamed 港蒸, quite ok, not the best.港蒸 is a really simple preparation.
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.
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.
the salted egg prawns were ok.
tofu brocoli dish was ok..
sambal kang kong was quite ok, a bit salty…
friend made a green tea cake.
it was like a pound cake, pleasant, quite light in flavour.
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.
