silk is kind a newly discovered joint for me, only becos i had to spend S$89 by end jun quarter or would be charged the levy.
wife & family have not tried the restaurant so we went today for 5pax family lunch on 3.7.2016.
i ordered one whole peking duck. as it turned out, we ordered quite a bit of dimsum but managed to cancel one dish as we had too much food.
overall dimsum here not really up to good restaurant standard.
the crispy char siew pao was ok, not the best but quite accpetable, something i would order again.
har gao虾饺 not too great, both prawn & skin.
the glutinous rice chicken糯米鸡 was quite ok, i would say pretty competent. 🙂
xiaolongbao小笼包 was poor. skin, fillings both poor & not much soup at all (& that is failure of the most important ingredient)!
prawn fun cheong虾肠 was poor, rubbery skin, prawns not great, sauce, passable.
crispy fupeiquin腐皮卷was good.
i did not try the soup dumpling汤饺.
both wife & daughter said it was very good, so it must be good la…
steamed pork ribs quite good, a bit fatty, but tender & tasty.
steamed chicken feet ok, passable.
the peking duck was ok.
quite nice with wrap etc.
i ordered a medium portion of the chinese rice wine frog米酒田鸡. everyone liked it, fresh frog & nice rice wine flavours.
the duck meat crispy noodles san meen was complimentary (second eat for peking duck). it was a really huge helping good for 10pax.
everyone liked it. i think it was a really good standard san meen, crispy & tasty with the duck & sauce.
we were just too full though, took only about 1/3 & decided not to ta pao since we were having some other dinner & no one would be taking this.
we had another medium order of garoupa fillet (S$24), but managed to cancel it as we really could not take any more food. would have to ta pao the entire dish if we did not manage to cancel la…
the 5pax lunch was S$114 after 15% discount. there is GST but no service charge.
dimsum was overall poor & the food was not like super. but the dishes we ordered (other than dimsum) were i think well better than average & S$114 for 5pax lunch was a fairly good makan.
