went with friend for lunch at tunglok signature @ orchard parade on 6.4.2016. ^^
just returned from london last evening. had an excellent family holiday in london, lisbon, porto with wife, son & daughter.
so my turn to buy lunch. 🙂
we started with a steamed razor clam.
clam was smaller than what usually is served in say ah yat, jumbo, long beach etc. the sauce a bit gluey, but overall the taste was still very good. 🙂
i would order this again, also after 50% palate discounts for 2pax, this dish was only S$6.40++.
we shared 1/2 pot lie tong 例汤 1/2 pot at S$16 (full pot S$28).
lie tong 例汤 always good here, and at others like imperial treasure etc. for me, a good lie tong 例汤 1/2 (they usually very good la) is better than taking sharksfin (politically incorrect) or even fishmaw soup.
& i wanted to let my friend try the roast london duck. ^^
they used irish duck which is fatter & more flavourful.
can’t it’s better than the tea smoked duck at xin cuisine,
but certainly it is better than the very good roast duck at canton paradise.
rack of lamb was good too, tender not too strong gamey taste. but chinese preparation is for me, never as good for this dish c/w with modern european.
we shared one order.
string beans was more ex, basically S$18 is a good restuarant kind of pricing for veg.
i had a zhajiangmian variation here with my wife recently.
this time, it was a garoupa fillet noodle soup.
it was good, soup very tasty, garoupa fillet fresh & sweet.
we shared one order.
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! ^^
