a very close friend bought birthday dinner for my wife & another friend today on 23.12.2017. ^^
they arranged for 6pax dinner, 3 couples, at silk restaurant, sicc island. 🙂
several dishes i had not tried before…the cold crab was good, firm, sweet, good roe..
the chinese ham & cucumbers appetiser was good.
the salted egg deep-fried fish skin good too..
though these 2 starters not really up there in my list..
the peking duck here is competent, always good, if not quite kai garden variety…
the crispy perch was among the best dishes.
crispy & light batter, sweet & tender fish , and very nice light thai sweet sauce dip…
i later returned for a dinner with my children & they all loved this crispy perch dish..
this braised tofu dish with homemade tofu, golden mushrooms & spinach was ok.
the tofu looked impressive but not well infused, so not that tasty.
on my subsequent visit with my children, we ordered this tofu with the minced meat sauce, and that was quite delightful. everyone liked it.
the complimentary second eat for the duck was a minced duck cabbage wrap.
it was pretty good, but i liked their shredded duck crispy noodles best.
this time since we had a separate noodle dish, the host arranged for the cabbage wrap.
the last dish of prawns beehoon was quite excellent too. prawns very fresh & sweet, and beehoon well infused with the flavourful stock. the menu item is kuay teow, but the host made an excellent choice of braised beehoon.
we had a great time together, a really wonderful evening. food was good. this friend is very busy, so i meet him twice a year, once during chinese new year & the other time in recent years, when i organised a birthday dinner for him. this year, we met 3 times. ^^
