my good RI friend organised a 6pax lunch at ng soon kee fish soup on 15.12.2016. ^^
we arrived at geyland east centre food centre, 117 aljunied ave 2, about 11.40am.
ng soon kee only starts 12pm. so we ordered medium 4x$5 fish soup + S$10 braised duck, got a table at the nice airy outside next to ng soon kee, & few of us went round to look at other stalls.
we considered roastmania, but decided to pass on that this time.
the pig innard soup was quite tasty, good standard.
the ingredients not too bad too, quite ok for S$5.
the nogh hiang used to be like such great thing in some reviews.
but really, it is nowhere near the standard of any ngoh hiang stalls, or even some S$1 beehoon mee stalls.
the S$4 hokkien mee was ok, above average.
stock was tasty, prawn was ok, belly pork strips & lar pok were all good.
this arrangement was quite perfect.
as ng soon kee does not start serving until 12pm.
so just nicely after we finished the ter huang kiam chye & hokkien mee, the fish soup & braised duck were ready.
i had originally not intended to take the fish soup. i wanted to just try the duck though i know it was NOT the usual lor arh – brasied duck – that i prefer.
fish soup not my favourite, usually soup quite bland. i don’t mind the fish but it is nothing special to me.
this fish soup though quite tasty.
there were quite a good serving of fish for $5, and the soup was tasty. i am happy that i took the fish soup.
the braised duck was quite what i expected.
nice braising sauce. duck was tender.
its was NOT the lor arh – braised duck – texture & feel that i prefer, just a cooked dish, like braised chicken pieces, very different experience from eating lor arh…
overall i would rate the fish soup best, the ter huang kiam chye next, hokkien noodles & braised duck about same for me.
after lunch we adjourned to the inside rows for coffee.
a friend bought some bee chiam kueh to try.
the peanut sauce was quite good, but the dough was not soft, not fluffy, not fragrant..
after lunch, we drove in 2 cars to bukit batok to attend a very close friend’s mom’s wake.
