Great Quality Lunch @ Tunglok Signature Orchard Parade on 6Appr2016

1/2 roast London duck - S$32

1/2 roast London duck – S$32

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.

my OPS friend bought me an excellent G7 Sinma frog porridge lunch on 11.3.2016 before my trip.

so my turn to buy lunch. 🙂

garlic steamed razor clams - S$12.80

garlic steamed razor clams – S$12.80

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++.

Lie tong 例汤 1/2 pot=S$16

lie tong 例汤 1/2 pot=S$16

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.

1/2 roast London duck - S$32

1/2 roast London duck – S$32

& 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 - S$15

Rack of lamb – S$15

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 - S$18

String beans – S$18

string beans was more ex, basically S$18 is a good restuarant kind of pricing for veg.

Garoupa fillet noodles soup - S$12

Garoupa fillet noodles soup – S$12

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.

Just Superb Roast London Duck @ Tunglok Signature Orchard Parade on 9mar2016

roast london duck - S$30

roast london duck – S$30

went with wife to tunglok signature @ orchard parade last evening on 9.3.2016. ^^

my favoruite restaurant but not been there for a while.

last time i had an excellent meal here was on 4.8.2015.

we ordered a scottish razor clam each. unfortunately server came back to say they served the last to some diners in the room.

蒜泥白肉 - S$8

蒜泥白肉 – S$8

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.

i think my own 蒜泥白肉is  taste-wise much better than this, though looks need to improve.

roast london duck - S$30

roast london duck – S$30

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!

roast london duck - S$30

roast london duck – S$30

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.

salted egg & wasabi prawns - S$10

salted egg & wasabi prawns – S$10

the salted egg & wasabi prawns were between mediocre & competent.

salted egg & wasabi prawns - S$10

salted egg & wasabi prawns – S$10

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! 🙂

string beans 四季豆 -S$18

string beans 四季豆 -S$18

the string beans though was very good. crunchy, fresh, sweet. 🙂

special zha jiang mian炸酱面-S$9.80

special zha jiang mian炸酱面-S$9.80

the zha jiang mian炸酱面 was more like a bakchormee, and it was pretty good too.

special zha jiang mian炸酱面-S$9.80

special zha jiang mian炸酱面-S$9.80

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.

雪中情怀

雪中情怀

the dessert 雪中情怀 was my perennial favourite.

雪中情怀

雪中情怀

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! ^^

A Relaxing Birthday Dinner at Tunglok Signature @ Central on 27May2015

salted egg prawns

salted egg prawns

last evening, my close dentist friend and godsis & her husband arranged a birthday dinner for another close friend at tunglok signature @ central on 27.5.2015. ^^

my wife & i & another friend joined dinner so there were 7pax.

birthday was several weeks before but some of us were away, anyway it was just fun to get together.

godsis was feeling rich & happy, and displayed great teamwork with her hubby, and managed to best my dentist friend to grab the bill at the end of dinner. 🙂

roast pork烧肉

roast pork烧肉

i just had salted egg prawns & roast pork烧肉 at a 13pax RI friends G20 dinner at peach garden @ metropolis the evening before, and that was good too.

we can see from the photos that the presentation & colours of the 2 dishes at tunglok were better. taste-wise they were close – the roast pork烧肉 about same, the salted egg prawns maybe tunglok a tad better. 🙂

deep-fried fish fillet (also salted egg)

deep-fried cod fish fillet (also salted egg)

deep-fried cod fish fillet (also salted egg)

we had the deep-fried cod fish fillet that seemed to be salted egg flavoured also. it was a well executed dish, somewhat oily. not really a preferred preparation for me.

the same dentist friend & mei mei had a birthday dinner for me in 2013 here at this same tunglok outlet. we had star garoupa fillet with broccoli & lily bulbs & that was very good. of course for me, steamed fish is the best. haha!^^
