went with wife to tunglok signature @ orchard parade last evening on 9.3.2016. ^^
my favoruite restaurant but not been there for a while.
we ordered a scottish razor clam each. unfortunately server came back to say they served the last to some diners in the room.
i ordered a 蒜泥白肉 & the salted egg & wasabi prawns to replace.
this 蒜泥白肉 looked nice but was mediocre this time. sliced pork was quite plain & sauce was heavy, i scrapped away most of it.
the roast london duck was simply incredible!
so tasty & flavourful from the fat & the skin very crisp.
overall it was even better than the excellent duck we had 2 days ago at ya wang 鸭皇 at sentosa in JB! so good it was!
but of course the duck itself was different, this a smaller duck from ireland. S$30 should be the going price in the good restaurants except here we have the 50% palate discounts for 2pax so, only S$15++
the meat was very tender & juicy.
the salted egg & wasabi prawns were between mediocre & competent.
in fact, the nicest was the tomatoes.
not that it was really no good, but it was more ordinary than ordinary. some zi char restaurants do better la! 🙂
the string beans though was very good. crunchy, fresh, sweet. 🙂
the zha jiang mian炸酱面 was more like a bakchormee, and it was pretty good too.
not my ideal noodle dish to order in a restaurant, but in fact equal or better than many.
& good ingredients too, scallops & prawns & loads of minced pork. chilli sauce was also good.
the dessert 雪中情怀 was my perennial favourite.
really enjoyed it, very refreshing. a lot of pomelo inside & of course mango.
altogether a very enjoyable dinner. after palate discounts dinner came to S$59 all-in for 2pax. yes! ^^
