Met my fren for lunch as we were going to a place together in Yio Chu Kang. We decided to dine at The Grassroots' Club, at the Naked Fish Shoppe. However, there was a wedding solemnization going on and as we were in a rush, we decided to go to Imperial Court Shark's Fin Restaurant upstairs to save the trouble of travelling to other places to look for food.
It was our first time at this restaurant, though both of us studied so near this Grassroots' Club. There were only 2 of us, so we decided to choose Yang Chow Fried Rice and share it together. Their menu was quite extensive, and prices are pretty ok for a restaurant. Both of us only had to pay around $8 for our whole lunch, and its a restaurant!
Hot chrysanthemum tea was poured for both of us and they served up peanuts and chilli sambal after we had placed our order. The peanuts were really nice, i couldnt stop eating it! It was soft, and the taste was just right. It wasnt those usual boring hard peanuts normally served in restaurants. The peanuts here were cooked!
The fried rice arrive quite quickly, mayb it's becos there wasnt alot of ppl. The staffs were also quite free, mostly walking ard to serve customers, or just talking among themselves. I tink restaurants mostly have crowds only during night-time, when ppl just finish work and would like to catch up with frens during dinner.
The fried rice had quite alot of ingredients in it, eggs, prawns, some kind of melon, etc. The serving was also very large, though we had ordered a small one. Both of us couldnt finish it! The rice wasnt too salty, just nice, and i had about 3 bowlful of it. My friend had a little more than me, and aft tat we were really full.
Only thing was that it took abit of effort when i wanted my bill. Although i raised my hands for quite a while, the staffs didnt really notice. :/
