went with HC & his wife, WM & M for 5pax lunch @ dian xiao er waterway point on 12.6.2018. ^^
first time i come to waterway point mall. dianxiaoer quite good ambience, apparently quite full during weekends??
they have a week day set lunch promotion S$32.80 that looked quite good. 🙂
we ordered 2 sets for 5pax, so 6 dishes = 3 dishes per set. you can add a soup of the day for S$4.80, normally like S$6.80. so we ordered 3. then 2 other normal price soup off the menu.
it included also free tea. here the service staff of the restaurant managed badly. 3 friends arrived earlier & asked about the promo lunch set but did not notice the free tea and ordered 3 tea. when we ordered the 2 sets, the waiter said he would cancel the 2 teas since we were entitled to 4 free tea, but his senior, a lady said we already ordered 3 tea so we had to pay for that.
anyhow the restaurant realised it’s not the right thing to do, and when we paid the bills they only charged 1 tea. that is the right service philosopy & service recovery..
the sets were pretty ok. quite good food.
all my friends (me included) liked the braised duck 十全鸭.
not xin cuisine standard or silk @ sicc standard but very good nonetheless. very tasty & enjoyable dish.
also ordered mushrooms with brocoli. it was a good size serving & mushrooms & brocoli all good.
baby kailan also good & done well, slightly sour with lemon juice i think, quite ok.
for the second set we ordered the braised belly pork. good too. flavourful & quite tender though the lean meat got some tougher parts.
the tofu with minced pork etc a robust dish, like the ordinary zi char..
the kailan dish unique & quite fine dish, with slice kailan stems, deepfried shredded kailand leaves (slight bitter) balanced by pork floss (sweet). interesting dish, overall quite nice.
there is also a steamed egg dish for each set. basically like a chawanmushi, and quite good too.
pork rib lietong quite ok, nothing special for S$4.80 but i guess even at food court that would be the price, so cannot “hiam” (complain)…
HC & wife ordered a cordycep soup & winter melon soup…
the lunch was pretty good. HC paid for lunch i think around S$100+ for 5pax pretty ok.
don’t mind the set at all. duck was good & the other dishes too. will bring my sis to try this next time.
