my good RI bro came to fetch me to buy LED lights at a shop in hillview terrace on 15.5.2017.
after that i wanted to go lunch at tunglok signatures at orchard parade hotel.
i already parked the car, and my friend suddenly remembered that tunglok had stopped amex lovedining privileges. i was away so did not get the grapevines.
we returned to the car but there was no grace period for the carpark so kena charged S$5 for like 3 mins. what to do right?
anyway we decided to go for chai chuan tou chinese mutton soup 柴船头羊肉汤 at bukit merah view though t may be long queue & carpark crowded.
luckily we got a carpark immediately!
there was a queue of maybe 12pax but it was ok like 10mins+ wait.
somehow the mutton soup was not as good as i expected, not having taken for long time i thought it would be very good.
it was still better than the other places like i had. the soup not unnaturally sweet, but like not as intense & flavourful as previously? was it just psychological?
we ordered 2x $6 bowls.
one was a 羊杂 which we didn’t want the mitton balls so just had stomach & mutton.
the other bowl we had ribs.
must say we could not tell the difference between the specified ribs order & the 羊杂 which supposed to have mutton? but looked just the same as ribs.
not that i am complaining. i love the mutton ribs. they were still tender & still very nice with the chilli.
my main grouse was the not so tasty soup & the missing 金钱肚.
overall i still enjoy the mutton soup but not as much. maybe my palate has changed? no?
