went with wife for dinner at tunglok signature orchard parade on 2.10.2016. ^^
had a nice 6km almost 2hrs walk at hort park this morning followed by a not so nice bakchormee at ah hoe meepok.
now looking forward to a great dinner.
tunglok is our regular haunt & part for amex lovedining.
for weekends the 50% discounts for 2pax apply only for the set menu.
we had among the best 6-course dinner here in 2013. and had it several times since. 🙂
the menu changed recently, so we decided to try the new 6-course menu= S$98pax at 50% discounts.
it was simply superb! ^^
we started with a lobster steak.
it was a big helping. 1/2 of a decent size live lobster, very flavourful with a nice sauce with a hint of wasabi & salad. 🙂
i may be able to do this myself using crayfish…
not sure what the flambe does? look nice of course, & a hotter soup (it does boils the side) always good. 🙂
anyway it was the usual tan jia preparation, very tasty broth, smooth & pleasing.
the green chilli steamed red garoupa was outstanding, a surprise for me.
tunglok always do excellent garoupa fillet dish. this was though quite exceptional.
really nice individual serving presentation, large serving of very fresh & tasty garoupa & a quite spicy (a great kick!) really lovely broth.
i am thinking how to do this myself…fillet a 1kg garoupa, make a sauce (boil the head & bones with some spinach (blend??) & chilli padi & reduce), steam the fillet…
such a wonderful dish! 🙂
the panfried spanosh kurobuta also exceed my expectations.
chinese style beef, lamb rack, kurobuta tend to have too sweet marinades.
good ones like it is done here i mostly like but still i like the western preparations better.
this one was very good, nice, tasty, peppery, & nice asparagus.
scallop noodles very nice too.
not the best noodle dish here, but very good la! 🙂
great stock, nice, plump scallops, small amount of noodles, just nice to round off the meal.
this should be easier to replicate.
this aloe vera lemon jelly dessert excellent too!
i always like the 雪中情怀 here = which is a very nice 杨枝甘露 topped with vanilla & coconut ice cream.
this one with lychee sorbet was not better but just as excellent! 🙂
we had the usual complimentary juice.
dinner came to S$125nett for 2pax after amex lovedining discounts.
these days they charged 10% service on the undiscounted bill. also no more free parking. so S$4 for evening per entry parking.
for us, a really excellent dinner & superb value.
