my old RI friend moved into a new 3-storey 4500sq ft freehold strata house recently, and he invited us over for lunch & housewarming on 23.11.2016. ^^
good location & nice environment, very high ceiling like 4.5m in the hall, very good folding sliding doors, & ducted aircon in hall plus cassette in nice & bright basement etc.
his helper cooked lunch for 10 of us – 6 dishes, very competent dishes indeed.
ngoh hiang quite impressive, like market or zi char/restaurant standard.
sweet & sour garoupa well done too.
not a favourite preparation for me, but fish was fried well, fresh & crispy, meat was firm, sauce was also competent.
steamed prawns well done too.
prawns fresh. i could also do w/o the mayo but light dash of mayo was ok for me too.
the pork trotters was good!
great texture, good “lor” braise sauce flavours, very tasty bamboo shoots & if my memory served me right the harder type of taukua, seldom used but i like them too.
certainly for me, it was…
chap chai was ok. basically all the dishes were competent. look like competent, taste like competent, so must be competent! lol! ^^
so was the sauteed mushrooms.
the guys walloped everything. no residue…
one friend brought these french (he said) madeleine like cake. pretty good.
we had a great time together…nice food, great company…
after lunch we had a briefing by another friend about a trip to miri, sarawak, and also to malacca & JB.
