we had a lot less RI G20 makans this year.
this time, the organiser chose JB Ah Meng. we had 16pax dinner on 27.7.2016. ^^
great! i have been wanting to try this place since lately my OPS friends have been introducing me to 三楼米粉.
a vegetarian friend joined us later after dinner. he always made an effort to join us after our makan if he can.
JB Ah Meng is located between lor 23 & aljunied road.
i turned around couple times but unable to get street parking, so parked at KH Plaza along aljunied road.
i was a bit cautious, ordered only 8 dishes & medium serving.
later i asked the guys whether they wanted to add dishes, they did not need. a good thing too as we don’t need to eat too much at our age la…lol! 🙂
white pepper crabs was done well, sweet, tasty. crabs were ok not super.
the signature 三楼米粉 was excellent!
it was not the most crispy version but it was tasty, moist, flavourful, a wonderful dish.
i was quite inspired by seng kee that i went back & did a 三楼米粉myself. haha! ^^
the potato dish recommended by a few reviewers was good.
& in fact most of the dishes were done well & tasty even though not much special.
kampung chicken also good taste. serving small, bony & not that much meat.
金香鱼头 also small serving & mostly bones. quite ex for me at S$24.
good thing the dishes all mostly quite tasty & flavorful. 🙂
crispy caramelised lotus roots good too! accompanied by snake beans, crunchy & fresh.
quite a good dish, not so common & nice to try.
3 mushrooms beancurd was quite ordinary. for me the poorest of the dishes.
sauce was very ordinary, mostly like oyster sauce taste, not like very tasty tofu dishes at (say)
a friend wanted the 青龙菜.
it was good, like chives & tender. & good wok hae! so done quite well la..
dinner was S$328 for 16pac which was just like S$20.50pax nett so overall price was ok.
if i had ordered a bit more dishes of larger dishes, probably say S$30pax, not really like cheap for zi char but quite ok la i guess.
we were seated 8pax on 2 tables. nice food & good time together with friends.
