went with wife for dinner at tunglok signature orchard parade on 2.10.2016. ^^

now looking forward to a great dinner.

6-course set dinner menu = amex lovedining 50% discounts for 2pax 

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! ^^

#1 panfried lobster steak 

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…

flambe sharksfin

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.

green chilli steamed red garoupa

#3 green chilli steamed red garoupa 

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! 🙂

panfried spanish kurobuta steak

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.

for this, i can probably vary my reverse sear mock kurobuta recipe & adjust the marinade

scallop noodles

#5 scallop noodles 

scallop noodles very nice too.

not the best noodle dish here, but very good la! 🙂

scallop noodles 

great stock, nice, plump scallops, small amount of noodles, just nice to round off the meal.

this should be easier to replicate.

not as difficult as the prawns in golden braising sauce (黄焖大虾面)

aloe vera & jelly with sorbet in coconut

#6 aloe vera & jelly with sorbet in coconut 

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! 🙂

complimentary juice

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.
