food was pretty good.

so this time after our 12pax durian party, 9 of us decided to come here for dinner.

fish head was the best dish.

nice curry, fresh fish, not better than but certainly as good as any.

for me, i still like forture’s thai style fish head curry best! that one is memorable. this one is very competent!

kou rou 扣肉 S$15

the kou rou 梅菜扣肉 S$15  was pretty good, competent i guess.

belly pork texture was ok (still not tender enough), taste quite good.

but honestly, my own 梅菜扣肉 is better by miles!

har jeon gai – prawn paste chicken here is one of the better ones. as i said last time, better than most fried chicken wings.

lala dish?

not sure if i should say this was passable?

for me the la la was ok but the sauce was poor, but actually one friend specifically said the sauce was nice like chilli crab. so i guess it is down to individual taste.

for my own taste preference, this NOT a dish i would order la…sauce sweet gluey odd actually!

again my own la la is miles better la!

quite strange really..

i commented the last time that it was good here precisely becos it did not tatse like that.

this sauce was exactly NOT the sauce to have la!

looked at the previous photo…it could be simply a case of adding too much the reddish sweet sauce overpowering the the milder chilli & sweet sauce taste!

seafood pot一品锅

seafood tofu

seafood tofu

the seafood tofu had good, fresh ingredients.

so did not stand out but then as the price is quite inexpensive so a rather good dish to order.
