had a nice lunch with my running buddy at tunglok signatures today on 3.1.2017. ^^
food here always nice, but parking is expensive, & now they refused to give free parking. so my friend piked me up & we went in one car. go green anyway!
the siew yoke – roast pork always good here. it’s amazing all these good restaurants, they can render out the fat layer almost completely, so it’s like a crispy skin plus fairly lean meat below! 🙂
i ordered the lie tong 例汤 everytime.
they are always good, and often better than many sharksfin soup la…
1/2 pot = S$16 serves 4 bowls, so good for 2-3pax.
today it’s arrowroots, still good but not the best. the best include 鸡骨草 & green papaya etc…
the prawns in 2 ways also my frequent order.
it looked nice, and came with a 2 large prawns – wasabi & salted egg, very well matched with a sweet water melon. today it was done very well. sometimes the deep-fry not light & just right.
all these are 1 person portion. but really the meal would be too heavy if you order a few course, so we took 1 portion to share, and for my friend, for him to taste more dishes.
so shared by 2, still a very welcoming portion. 🙂
tunglok does one of the best chinese (maybe fusion??) lamb rack.
maybe all good chinese restaurants do that these days.
lamb was nicely medium rare, tender & no strong gamey taste, just like any western preparation.
& the pepper sauce was just nice, not overly stickly sweet, overpoweringly pepperish like they used to do in older time chinese restaurants.
this kailan must be among their worst dishes!
quite edible, but neither presentation, look nor taste belongs to the dish quality in this restaurant.
it’s more like from a quite mediocre zi char. most zi char will do better than this. & i would do too myself la…lol!^^
the lobster noodles here always good.
i order 1 portion each. the lobster steak was done very well, as always, very good grilled flavours & excellent bite texture.
the yellow sauce was ok. today the dish came early while we were working on the kailan & we took it a bit later, so the yellow sauce not as great when cold. noodles remained al dente & good. 🙂
noodles & sauce-wise, mine wasn’t too bad too. of course cannot compare with the lobster steak.
