This special family dinner was a makan treat of my mom’s workplace bonus.The service was slow due to the overwhelming crowd,we had to reserve and wait for half an hour. And upon being seated , had to wait another half an hour before we got our orders in.虾棗 PRAWN ROLLS –It was hot and crispy, the filling was very peppery but perfect combination of crunchy chestnut bits, carrot, minced pork and you can even see a prawn stuffed in.

It was hot and crispy, the filling was very peppery but perfect combination of crunchy chestnut bits, carrot, minced pork and you can even see a prawn stuffed in. Dipped in sweet sauce (I asked for more as they gave me a miserable small saucer for 10 people!) 咖啡排骨 COFFEE PORK RIBS –
I could smell this before I even saw it served on the table. Amazing aroma stronger than any cup of coffee, succulent fried pork coated with sweet sticky coffee sauce with sprinkled toasted sesame seeds. I almost didn’t want to chew, just sucking on it like a toffee. 铁板豆腐 HOT PLATE BEANCURD –
Despite the aural appeal of sizzling hot plate, this dish looked as dull as it tasted. There was almost no flavour and the egg was still uncooked resulting a runny gooey layer of coating on the whole dish. 叁岜应菜 SAMBAL KANGKONG –
Sweet and mild sambal kangkong was very oily, however, it tasted great with the crunchy fried pork lard bits. 潮州蒸金目卢 TEOCHEW STYLE SEABASS –
Light , fresh and subtle flavoured fish steamed with picked mustard and tomatoes. I’m not sure if it’s the tofu that has gone bad or the sour taste is coming from the mustard. Fish meat is palatable. 砂煲醉虾 CLAYPOT DRUNKEN PRAWNS –
Strong herbs and robust smell defines the soup of this great dish, tastes amazing and makes you want to just dunk your head into the claypot. Fresh ex-live prawns was really firm and sweet. A bite makes a crunch sound! 椒盐排骨 SALT BAKED PORK RIBS –
This was probably just as disappointing as the hot plate beancurd. Despite how great it actually looks, I was in for shock when a few bites determined there was ZERO flavour and I had to ask for chilli dipping to finish the rest of it. I intended to ask for replacement but they’re too busy and I did not want to waste time waiting for it. 四季豆炒肉碎 FRENCH BEANS W/ MINCED PORK –
The frenchbeans had great wok hei taste. This was probably the most french beans I’ve ever eaten from a single portion. It never seems to end! The minced pork was very tender and saucy. And the french beans was really really crunchy! It wasn’t oily at all. This one has my vote! $157 for 10. totally worth it but some dishes need improvement or replacement.
