today we had our regular meet-ups to celebrate the jan & feb birthdays of RI 14 bros on 26.2.2019. ^^
the organisers (nov/dec birthday boys TCH, HAB, YKK, LCM) arranged a 6miles walk at BTNR. after the hike we adjourned to lunch at 7th miles seafood.
the roast duck looked great, so we ordered.
it was very good! pang and great chilli..i will come back for this roast duck.
fish maw soup was good enough. quite tasty.
this one here slightly more watery. still good by most zi char standard.
the garlic steamed sotong was an excellent dish.
basically it is HK steam ie light soy sauce based with loads of garlic on top. and the sotong was done just right, not like many places which overcook the sotong.
this a real simple dish. i will serve this at my next dinner. 🙂
lala also hk steamed.
some friends said the sauce a bit salty. it is good for eating with plain rice, similar to steamed razor clam dishes.
the hae choe was actually pretty good, crispy and the fillings were tasty.
it was a huge piece and S$2.50 per piece a tad expensive. of course many zi char would charge you S$8 or S$10 for 10 pieces maybe, which maybe not bigger than this one 4 pieces?
harjeongai was good!
crispy batter, good prawn paste flavours, chicken was tasty and not old, not overdone…
spinach was ordinary, actually not so good, a bit ”siap” and also tough.
i do a better dish anytime, lol!
crab beehoon was the signature dish here, the main item.
the organisers ordered 3 servings = S$224.
price wise it was not specially expensive as the crabs were large and 1kg+. if only the beehoon was good! crab was tasty, sweet, mostly thoink “strong”. somehow the beehoon was not well infused with the broth, a bit dry and not so tasty.
dinner was S$475 for 14pax excluding the S$36 roast duck
the 6miles walk was excellent, healthy, good air, good exercise.
this 7miles lunch a good and satisfying meal after the walk.
