went with sis & bil to watch a movie monster hunt 捉妖记 on 4.3.2016. a friend joined the movie. i quite enjoyed it actually – effortless, relaxing. haha!
before the movie 3 of us went to have dinner at curry wok. friend was busy having dinner with his family.
i have not been here for very long as son is away no one to eat the pig trotters with me la.. 🙂
we ordered the S$62 set meal, with 4 dishes for 3-4pax. we computed the ala carte price would have been S$67 so just S$5 discount. well still a discount if you wanted the dishes, so ok la.
it came with curry fish head (angkoli), pig trotters, ngoh hiang & chap chai.
the fish head was yum yum, very good, drank up all the curry.
fish was fresh & sweet, quite enough meat for 3 of us.
i like this curry much better than that at sanpo food court, blk 431 clementi ave 3 (like for like). somehow that curry taste a bit off for me, not the one i had in mind whereas this one fits perfectly.
& i like this better than the assam fish head at dulukala peranakan restaurant at beauty world centre. that was a different style & assam not bad too but i prefer this chinese style fish head curry.
the braised pig trotters was something i missed, not taken for a long time.
it was still good, especially the gelatinous skin, but actually quite below my expectations.
the starchy sauce was so so for me, & the quite sinewy meat was below par for me thought the skin & gelatinous parts were good.
i think my own braised trotters much better than this in terms of both flavour & the texture of the meat, tender, with bite & not sinewy.
the ngoh hiang here was really good. crispy skin, & tasty fillings with some crunch. tops!
chap chai was good too. better than dulukala’s version of chap chai.
dinner for 3pax was S$70. i supposed ok but no particular good value.
i may still come back here for the curry fish head la, but no more the pig trotters.
