my ri bro (he was also like a mentor to my youngest daughter) was away in israel with his son,
so today he arranged a 2pax belated birthday dinner for me at tunglok signature.
i told him tunglok no more lovedining discounts lol! anyway we went ahead. it is near his office very convenient and food here quite good whether at a good deal price or normal price. 🙂
it’s like a thai flavours seafood and sharksfin set.
so the appetizer like a thai fish cake deep fried, menu sid conpoy. it was good, tasty…the tomato with a bit of pomelo on top was sweet & refreshing.
really thankful to have such a wonderful friend and bro. 🙂
next was a sharksfin dish. the soup was outstanding! tunglok and lei garden, imperial treasure etc lie tong soup always very good.
this was a sharksfin thick soup, very intense tasty superior stock 上汤 so smooth and so very tasty. 🙂
the pan-fried tiger king prawn was good. done well.
i guess it was like any other large prawn…
the steamed soon hock always good at tunglok. and they do other fish fillet dishes very well too.
this was like the chinese fine dining answer to western cuisine – individual serving plated very well with great sauce and garnishes, vs the traditional whole soon hock fish presentation. lol!
the braised pork was nice, great texture, a bit of vinegared sweet taste 糖醋 served with brocoli, sweetened salted veg and 1/2 hardboiled egg.
as a dish on a whole though, not very good standard w/o good sauce and basically a lot of plain tasting carbs. of course i didn’t take much rice. lol!
the chilled aloe vera lemon jelly was good dessert.
we were served a complimentary drink at the end when serving dessert. a plate cleanser for dessert? anyway nice drink no need to know what it’s for….
tunglok provided 2 longevity buns 寿桃
we dispensed with the recital this time. 🙂
i had a really good time. we shared about our family, some recent news about a close friend and bro, and i talked a bit about my relatives in china…
so grateful to have a few good close friends.
