had 11pax family dinner with brother, sil & family, and sis & bil at fragrant garden this evening on 8.1.2017. ^^
very enjoyable & cost S$240 for 9pax.
this evening we came at 6pm on a sunday. this a good timing. traffic is horrendous on weekdays. & 6pm is perfect! there were already few tables but basically, everything went smoothly. in fact the food was served just too fast! we were done like in 50mins!
ter kar ton – trotter jelly good as usual.
so was the hae chor. very competent.
these 2 dishes though not like the favourites for my family.
braised duck was quite good here.
lor was “pang” – fragrant, and duck was tender.
no better than my own braised duck though!
oyster omelette was good, great wok hae, nice flavour & had good oyster flavour, fresh large plump oysters.
fell in love with the steamed halibut during last dinner.
ordered. a bit smaller fish this evening. in any case it goes by weight, so this was S$59.50 whereas the dinner my OPS friend bought it was S$70.
it was enough anyway. everyone loved it & my brother & others had several helpings.
the claypot fish soup also very good.
i will order it again next time.
soup was very sweet & fish was fresh & large, excellent this!
between the 2 great dishes, i still like the halibut more.
& this claypot pomfret soup i cam make easily la…the halibut? not sure where to buy yet???
crab tofu dish very good. very tasty this!
the stock, flavours, texture of tofu all excellent.
the teochew stewed vegetables was very good.
my family, wife, 2 daughters etc all loved it.
& so the teochew chai poh kuay teow.
excellent wok hae.
maybe i will try to cook this.
my niece immediately kee chiu for orh nee.
this time i ordered S$20 orh nee. looked great with pumpkin, ginkyo nuts & fried shallots but not like normal orh nee.
until you mixed it.
very “pang” flavourful not too sweet, very smooth, the perfect orh nee la…maybe got lard???
very enjoyable dinner for my family. everyone very happy with the dishes & enjoyed a great makan & get together.
dinner was S$334 for 11pax.
