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.

long queue at 11.30am

long queue at 11.30am

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.

chilled mullet 冻乌鱼pigs tail bkt pork trotters = S$40

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!!!

chilled mullet 冻乌鱼=S$17

chilled mullet 冻乌鱼=S$17

the chilled mullet 冻乌鱼 was S$17!!!

it was nice, fresh, tasty, skin easily removed (as it should be).

chilled mullet 冻乌鱼=S$17

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.

& the chilled mullet 冻乌鱼 i made at home is equally nice as this one.

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…

but really, no better than the cheap S$10/kg frozen prime ribs bkt i made myself at home. my soup just as good & really my prime ribs outright better lor! ^^

pigs tail = S$8

pigs tail = S$8

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!

pork trotters = S$4

pork trotters = S$4

& 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….
