We reached at Ard 5 smthing close to 6pm, we were the first customer. We actually wanted to order the $98 set menu. But they say they dont have that, and insisted only have the mother's day set menu;( that is not very customer orientated
;( We order the Mother's Day set menu for 4 pax @$168.
1) smoked duck w scallop mango salad
The smoked duck was supposed to be black pepper flavour. But the black pepper taste is nowhere to be found. this appetiser is indeed refreshing with the mango salad. Scallop wasn't too bad too.
2) steamed egg white topped with fish maw and shredded chicken
My sister distributed this dish to us. Guess I am lucky or unlucky, didnt get the shredded chicken. The shredded chicken is in small quantity. The egg white was not smooth. And the fish maw soup is not thick as well.
It was an average dish. And quantity is small.
3) 10 head whole abalone and ringed conpoy
It came in nice presentation. Thick slice of melon encompasses the dried scallop, with abalone sitting around them;)
Taste wise, is really average. Abalone is kind of bland. Sauce is light as well. The only good thing is that the dried scallop is not as overly cooked.
4) prawn coated with milk and butter
Pathetically small! Didnt managed to bring out the taste of this dish. Not flavourful. It's very average.
5) noodle with spring onion and ginger
noodle is the mee kia type. and has a strong "kee" smell.. Definitely is a spoiler to the whole set menu.
6) abundance 5 gems desserts
Not too sweet and thick. It suitable for me who doesn't like sweet things.
Good thing is they throw in a free 1/4 suckling pig for this mother's day set menu. My sister say the suckling pig has a very strong "PIG' smell, its not crisp to the point as well.
