the paste was among the best i had.

fish head was very fresh, w/o any fishy taste, meat was tasty, & above all the paste was really excellent.

it was a quite different presentation from-

  1. HK street sum kee at alexandra village
  2. HK street old chun kee at commonwealth drive
  3. two chefs eating place at commonwealth crescent

all the above3 have a more liquid sauce, whereas this one at the commonwealth crescent food centre has a quite viscous paste.

this preparation looks like dry steaming w/o collecting the condensation then adding the paste on top.

most recommended methods steam the fish head separately (& remove the water to remove any fishy taste), then add the paste/sauce on top.

for me i am lazy to do that, so i washed the fish head with salt, then add the paste & steam in the steam oven.

i did that for a 6pax lunch on 1.8.2016. the result was almost as good la…

children were out this evening. had a 2pax dinner with wife at ah yat grandstand on 2.9.2016. ^^

food is consistently good here, and there are dishes we like here which are for me very good value for the price. so ordering the right dishes meaning food you like & good value is the key.

this evening only 2 of us.

we ordered the live garlic steamed bamboo clams 蒜蓉蒸, always good here, done just right texture & the HK steam garlic sauce so tasty la!

they don’t do it with tanhoon here, but say tunglok does with tanhoon but the taste of the gluey sauce was inferior to here at ah yat.

they did not have manila clams this evening.

the sambal tua tau was good, but in comparison the poorest of the 4 dishes.

i asked the server, they recommended sambal, which is the traditional way in every zi char & restaurants.
