The Place - No frills, unpretentious Cantonese restaurant at a quiet corner of B1 United Square helmed by former hotel chef Mr Yip from HK. Rather crowded at meal times so be prepared to wait for one of the 15 or so tables if you arrive without reservation. There is a private dining room with chandelier but it is always unoccupied when we visit. The Service - Mrs Yip leads the table crew and doubles up as the cashier. Service is brisk & efficient, if rather impersonal as the restaurant is usually crowded & staff are kept busy, on their toes. Dont expect special attention unless you're a regular.The Food - Hearty Cantonese cooking with something to suit every palate and pocket. Menu includes crowd favourites like sweet sour pork, spinach with trio of eggs, shrimp paste chicken, sam loh sliced fish hofun, and banquet offerings like buddha jumps over the wall, pen cai casserole, roast chicken, live seafood. Set menus are available. The dishes we ordered were well executed:* yusheng - ingredients were fresh but the crackers, pickles tasted mass produced rather than made in house. * sweet sour fish - tasty and popular with the kids.* spinach in superior stock - generous portion and stock used for poaching the vegetables was flavorsome & free of MSG.* eggplant & tofu casserole - tasty but much too greasy, could have used more salted fish in the gravy. Goes very well with rice.* roast chicken (half ) - excellent, on par with the versions served at hotel restaurants like Summer Palace & Shang Palace.* wasabe prawns - very fresh and crunchy prawns with light touch of wasabe mayo that makes this dish ok for kids too* sliced garoupa with ham & mushroom - a dish usually found at high end restaurants. Fish was thickly sliced.* braised sea cucumber with conpoy stuffed melon - another dish usually found only at high end restaurants. Perhaps cost of ingredients are high close to CNY so the pieces of sea cucumber were a little small. The Prices - Very reasonable for a restaurant. Pleasantly surprised that prices for small portions start at $8++ to $10++ comparable to zichar stalls in kopitiam. Low prices possibly to draw repeat customers as it is the new kid on the block at Newton/Novena area. continue reading
