had a jumbo S$100 e-voucher expiring 9.11.2017 that can be used at chui huay lim, got my OPS bros to join me for a 5pax dinner on 3.11.2017. ^^
i need to order like S$200 to use the S$100 e-voucher.
it’s more convenient now withe-voucher only need to show my ic. service was good. the young guy is from shandong jinan (provincial capital). he helped me to compute the food orders & i managed to order about S$203 including tea (S$1.20pax quite ok) & nuts (S$2/plate also ok), so i can apply the S$100 vouchers discounts. 🙂
the ter kar ton – pig trotter jelly S$12 was competent, ok…i had better ones…
hae chor – ngoh hiang prawn rolls S$12 was very good, very tasty. 🙂
the crab meat fish maw soup S$42 also very good, chokeful of ingredients & mostly importantly a very tasty stock! 🙂
the hae chor & this crabmeat fish maw soup are what i would order if i come again. 🙂
the 1/2 braised duck S$32 was the worst dish we had this evening, a disaster considering that braised duck & goose are like the signatures of every good teochew restaurant.
we ordered 1/2 duck S$32 according to menu, but it came as a plate of sliced meat.
there was no options for 鸭片&鸭肉as in many teochew restaurants, and it makes NO sense to serve 1/2 duck in this manner. it did not look like 1/2 duck at all & we did not feel there were thigh meat, only breast meat.
i will NEVER EVER order this dish here again! FULLSTOP!
we should have just rejected the dish la! lol! 🙂
i guess to be fair duck itself was passable, a bit soft & bland in taste with no texture c/w eating a proper duck meat – a style i do not like…
there was cold crab available this evening.
& i absolutely refused to order any fish here! like S$110 for a treadfin fish tail & pomfret etc.
very easy to do just as good steam fish at home for 10% the cost.
the pepper beef fillet S$14 was excellent.
this not the chinese tenderised beef cube style which very artificially tender & overly sweet.
this a bit like korean or western fillet style, done very nicely & even came with caramelised onions.
certainly a dish i would order again…very good for the price! ^^
the string beans 四季豆 S$14 was expensive like many vegetable dishes these days. it was quite tasty though, so quite fine by me.
the seafood mee sua was nice, flavourful. my friends liked it, said good wok hae, and tasty.
& small serving S$22 good enough for 5pax…
i didn’t think much of the orh nee – yam paste S$5/bowl. S$25 for 5pax & quite bland & tasteless, not “pang” not flavourful.
a really good one would be like at fragrant garden – then it would be worth eating.
dinner came to about S$121 after S$100 voucher discounts, so for that price then it was pretty decent food to have for 5pax!
