Continuing from my previous post.
Salted egg custard bao
The salted egg custard is not salty at all. There is light sweetness in it and I like how it camouflage itself like a cupcake! Upon taking a bite, you will notice that the entire bun is filled with custard. This is a must have dish!
Black bean chicken feet
Chicken feet has always been my favorite dish of all. This dish didn't fail me. The feets are so soft I could just put the entire thing in my mouth and pull out the bones without any efforts.
I didn't taste any part of this dish so I can't comment much but it looks nice though.
Steam jiu cai jiao
Leek that doesn't have strong leek taste. Again this dish is best eaten hot.
Mini egg tart
I love egg tarts especially those I have tasted in Hong Kong. This little tarts doesn't taste the same but they came close. I like it that the egg custard is not hard and the pastry is flaky. It's also a good size so that customer can have the stomach to try other food items.
Big succulent prawns wrapped in soft translucent skin. Need I say more??
Didn't taste this dish too coz we ordered too much and couldn't stuff in any more food. Should have ordered in small quantity next time.
chang shou mian
Symbolically speaking, a birthday needs to have chang shou mian (longevity noodle). To celebrate mum's 60th birthday today, the service staff actually suggested ee fu noodles as it is easier to digest and the kids can eat. To be frank, I don't like ee fu noodles and will always give this dish up when I attend wedding dinners. But this noodle is surprisingly nice. I finished every bit of it. Could be the mini fried shrimps added into the noodles that gave it the fragrance and yummy taste.
Initially, I find that the service is rather slow. But for some reason, after serving the 4th dish...the rest came faster than we could eat. I reckon it is due to the fact that we have a curfew to meet. We were at the first seating. So our timeslot is from 11am to 12.50pm. So when they are slow in the beginning and fast in the middle, we were forced to gobble down our food. What's great is that the service crew were helpful especially their captain (a guy by the surname of Ong...that's all I could see from his nametag). His explanation to our questions were very satisfying and best of all, he uses our dialect (Cantonese) to speak to us when he heard us speaking among ourselves in Cantonese. There were 11 of us spending a total of S$190+. I think the food is a good value for money. All in all, I will definitely head back to Taste Paradise for a few more visits with my friends.
