had a great 7pax lunch at yi jia seafood at macpherson road on 21.6.2016. ^^
we had 7pax, doing a birth month lunch ie belated birthday lunch for a good friend. 🙂
first time i come to yi jia.
i had been to (1) swa garden (2) ming kee both restaurants next door & they were pretty good.
yi jia has a promotion. 2 crabs for S$50. we decided to have crab bee hoon. they charged another S$9 for bee hoon so total S$59.
i asked the price of crabs. they said S$55/kg, pretty good also.
anyway the 2 crabs turned out to be pretty big, maybe 700g each, so promotion price ok la…
beehoon was well infused with flavors very “yup mei” 入味!^^
subsequent to this i made a very nice crab beehoon for a 12pax OPS primary school gathering, i think equally tasty & flavorful (my very first attempt on crab beehoon)! ^^
assam fish head was fresh & assam taste always attractive, the slight sweet tangy taste.
fish head was small though.
the pig trotter was a huge helping.
gelatinous parts were very nice, tasty, and i ate too much this unhealthy stuff.
some parts of the skin was a little dried up.
meat was a bit overcooked, so just a bit sinewy not so good bite.
one friend quite liked the meat but thought the sauce was gluey. i was ok neutral on the sauce.
anyway it was much better standard than the one i had at curry wok.
the tua tau was nice. everyone liked it.
a bit sandy, so not washed & drained properly.
it was a nice dish. nothing much in the preparation, just minced garlic oil & steamed, but most importantly tasted good la! 🙂
stir-fried hong kong kai lan very good, nice wok hae.
lunch was S$181 for 7pax, so price quite ok too…
