went with sis & bil to 光明山to pay respects.
after that drove to seng kee bakuteh @ amk ave 10 chong boon food centre on 4.10.2016. ^^
we were there about 11.15am, no queue yet.
later while we were eating, the queue was about 7-8pax.
seng kee sells bkt, pig’s tail, pork trotters & fish.
today they have chilled mullet 冻乌鱼 selling at S$12 & S$17, and pek tor (rabbit fish) selling at 2 for S$8.
price was expensive for supposedly cheap food in a market/food centre stall.
we had 4 items ＝ chilled mullet 冻乌鱼，pigs tail， bkt & pork trotters for S$40.
& that was after refusing a huge plate of pig trotters & accepting a $4 plate instead!!!
the chilled mullet 冻乌鱼 was S$17!!!
it was nice, fresh, tasty, skin easily removed (as it should be).
it’s a larger chilled mullet 冻乌鱼 than the size i prefer to buy at sheng shiong when there is offer like 2 for S$8.90.
for this size, maybe about S$5 each.
i forgot to take a separate photo for the bakuteh. it was S$7, NOT the excellent long prime ribs龙骨served by rong cheng 榕城 bakuteh at sin min road….
anyway bkt also quite nice, and soup very competent…
the pig’s tail was S$8. I guess quite ok price. a pig’s tail this size cost S$3+ at sheng shiong.
soup was good not super. pig’s tail was good!
& the pork trotters was good! excellent texture & flavours too.
so the food was actually pretty ok, the price (on the boards) were quite ok for trotters etc. & there was quite long queue so people do like the food.
but i really don’t like the attitude=pushing my sister a huge plate (which we rejected) like 2.5x to 3x the serving of the S$4 trotters when my sis asked for small. when i asked them to give the S$4, the second women said S$4 was for 1pax.
for this i myself will not return to this stall, at least for a while….
