we have this 14 RI bros dinners we organised to celebrate birthdays of our bros.
this evening KWL & YKK were the 2 main protaganists, and we had a really nice 14pax dinner at tasty loong by chef pung in orto on 3.8.2018. ^^
orto is a 5 hectares multi-recreational park that is open to the public 24 hours a day, formerly bottletree park. there is prawning, futsal, paintball & go-karting etc…there is a lake & lakehosue with old kampong charms and rustic feel.
in fact several bros went for the go-karting before dinner.
i went for dinner, had some difficulty finding tasty loong as the the signboard at the orto lakehouse shows long jiang chinos among many eateries but not tasty loong…seems that they are one & the same as the address is the same #01-06…maybe chef pung rebranded or there was some restructuring…whatever..
it was a great experience. food was good, there was a lake backdrop, pleasant ambience, good service & a engaging humorous server – my understatement. 🙂
great find by KWL! seems that he came specially to try the food, a jolly good excuse to enjoy good food. lol! 🙂
KWL ordered the food. good stuff…👍👍👍
deepfried fish skin not so much my favourite. this was very well done, crispy, good salted egg flavours..
the kurobuta char siew very tasty…means very unhealthy la..
heavenly sinful delicious…made sense?
crispy sotong…also not my favourite…a long time seafood restaurant popular dish..
again done very well…
the claypot sea cucumber very average for me…
i guess all the 一品煲kind of dishes doesn’t quite excite me, unless they are very tasty…
this one somewhere between competent & pedestrian..
chinese style beef cubes was well done too.
i am the western steak or yakiniku or tagliata type, so chinese style mostly tenderised (this one maybe a good cut not tenderise not sure) doesn’t excite me also…
the smoked duck was quite excellent, very tasty smoked flavours.
probably not the ntuc type i think?
i would certainly order this again…
the roast london duck was very good, very tasty & the was a nice mago sauce…
roast duck in hawker stalls & coffeeshop in singapore cannot compare with hong kong or london or even JB. the restaurants served better roast duck & this roast london duck among the better ones.
the 1/2 salt baked chicken 盐焗鸡 was very good, very tasty.
and subsequently i made a second time & it was very good, though still not as good as this one…will put up a recipe later…
the sliced fish soup was very tasty & the fish were firm & sweet.
i thought it might be snakehead but i think it was seabass. anyway a good dish a bit expensive side i think S$40+
kang kong was good..
and of course the organisers got 2 very nice birthday cakes for QTC & LKY. 🙂
we all had a wonderful evening, fun & chill with RI bros.
dinner came to about S$400 for 14pax, quite ok price but we also did not order fish or other expensive dishes. quite ok for such nice food, ambience &fun.
