for mar2016, the organiser arranged dinner at first culinary at ITE college central 2 Ang Mo Kio Drive on 24.2.2016. 11pax attended.
we had the S$468 menu.
food taste was good actually. but it was quite expensive for the type of dishes & ingredients. we paid S$55 each.
some didn’t like the longevity buns so we had the deepfried mantous instead. they were nice though they didn’t fit into the dishes & perhaps the original longevity buns would do.
the cold dishes was quite good standard. all were quite tasty. roast pork nicely done & standard of any good restaurants like tunglok, imperial treasure etc.
fish skin, baby octopus, ribs & the egg were all good.
our group now more nevironment conscious, so sharksfin changed to fish maw soup. bravo!
the fish maw was also very good standard, tasty, with good amount of crab & fish maw, not the gluey starchy type.
& the stock, soup base was good, so a sweet, tasty soup, beng thin standard la…
there was a wasabi & peanut sauce prawns.
both were very well down. same preparation deep-fried very nicely & added sauce. first time i had peanut sauce. it was good too.
we had a large soon hock, probably 1 kg size.
it was HK steamed 港蒸, very nicely done too, fresh, quite the perfect timing, very good.
the abalone dish was good standard but nothing special.
abalone is abalone, the duck web & brown braising sauce ok but nothing special, bot specially tasty..i had better la…
scallops & broccoli were all good. the basket was not yam basket but some potatoes, so so to me, no one took much.
yee meen noodles were pretty tasty.
sea coconut was the usual.
it was another wonderful evening of old friends coming together, great chat & sharing, strengthening of friendship & bonds.
overall the food was ok or good but pedestrian. nothing special except for the price, which was rather expensive at S$55nett each for the type of dishes. price was not outrageous but not great value also.
still between good value but mediocre food & this, i would rather have good standard food preparation & taste, and not so great value.
i heard hong kong people talking in the streets (actually in the MTR station), “sin you ho sek, yin hao dai sek” 贤要好吃,然后抵吃…so first good taste, then good value la…
