Very Good Wagyu Beef Cubes 4pax dinner @Silk SICC on 23Mar2019

roast combintion

a good friend SMM and wife bought 4pax dinner at silk sicc this evening on 2.3.2019.^^

the duck, char siew and siew yoke were all good. peach garden siew yoke still better la. 🙂

silk sicc

nice calligraphy. i must practice this later.

pepper beef

the pepper beef was really good, supper tender. wife and i not tried this here before.

the service staff here not knowledgeable. earlier we asked for chrysantemum with 枸杞 wolfberries. 2 staff came. both had no clue what was 枸杞 wolfberries. this time i asked was the where the beef from? was it wagyu? service staff came back after checking and said from australia but she no clue about wagyu.

otherwie service attitude was good. just knowledge not good.

sea perch thai style

today sea perch came with thai green spicy sauce. not the crispy sea perch with thai sweet sour sauce we wanted but it was good to try a new dish.

it was good too, just very sour and spicy and too salty. wife and i prefer the crispy perch.

asparagus

asparagus was competent.

braised prawns beehoon

the fresh prawns braised beehoon was very good. always good!

beehoon very flavourful well infused with stock. prawns just 4 pieces very small serving, lots of beehoon. luckily beehoon very tasty all finished.

i will do braised beehoon again, either white beehoon or this style.

cake

braised prawns beehoon

it was a wonderful dinner with good friends. we don’t meet often…it was good sharing and fellowship

Wonderful Lobster and Alaskan Crab Tanhoon Dinner @ Ah Yat Grandstand on 20Mar2019

2pax dinner

had 2pax dinner with wife at ah yat grandstand on 20.3.2019. ^^

didn’t come here for a while.

business seemed to have drop, not many tables occupied.

food still good, prices gone up a bit.

garlic steamed razor clams S$6.80

garlic steamed razor clams S$6.80

razor clams garlic steamed was good as usual. relative to other restuarants which charge S$10-S$12, this price is good, but at a time it was just S$4.80, and a razor clam shouldn’t cost this much…

alaskan crab tanhoon S$42

the server said i had not been here long time and price only went up S$4 from S$38. i laughed.

it was really good! tanhoon so super tasty!

i must do my prawn tanhoon again la…

and we had like 8 pieces of crab legs, which were fresh and meaty and tasty..

alaskan crab tanhoon S$42

good stuff for the price…

lobster in superior stock S$25

lobster in superior stock S$25

live lobster price gone up to S$39 from S$29.80. of course even at S$39 it is a lot cheaper than most restaurants which charge S$60+.there were 2 dead lobster on ice, so we inquired.

satisfied that the lobster was fresh, we ordered that (in many western or newton circle or bbq restaurants, its always on ice, and in markets we buy fish and prawns all dead).

the lobster turned out beautifully, fresh, bouncy, sweet. wife and i couldn’t tell any difference from what we usually eat. i guess we took a risk if it had turned out poorly but still edible…

and steamed with superior stock 上汤焗was just perfect!

ginger onion frogs = 2 bullfrogs S$9

ginger onion frogs = 2 bullfrogs S$9

the best deal here really the bull frogs 田鸡.

i mean even here at ah yat, a lala dish would cost .S$10 and in many zi char and restaurants S$18.

and the ginger onion frogs 姜葱炒here is first class, better than most restaurants and zi char.

bill for 2pax dinner 

dinner was S$112. of course this could feed 3 or even 4pax.

and lobster and alaskan crab are expensive stuff.

alaskan crab tanhoon

a really satisfying and enjoyable dinner. slurp!
