We had the Marinated Sea Whelk, something unique and exotic. The mysterious sauce tasted akin to Thai sauce, and the texture was interesting. It was smooth and chewy, similiar to squid but a lot more tender. It was so delicious I could easily eat a few pieces at a go.

It is not hard to see why everyone adored the Drunken Chicken Roll here. The chicken meat was ultra tender and juicy, infused generously with alcohol to give it the in-your-face good taste yet not overpowering the natural sweetness of the chicken.

Now, time for the Fried Crayfish with Black Pepper - a combination of two of my favorite things. Bouncy, saccharine flesh that is complemented by the spiciness of black pepper, heightening the overall taste.

The other palate pleaser would be the Cathay Roasted Crispy Chicken, crackling skin that flanked delicately soft flesh within it - yes, unbelievably tender meat that one never expects of a roast chicken dish. Flavor was adequate, especially when eaten with the crumbs of garlic (and something else indiscernible) that are sprinkled over the chicken.

Time for desserts next. We began with the Crispy Chinese Pancake - it was not greasy at all, and the crusts were crispy, cracker-like in lieu of the softer, oily-er ones that we get conventionally. We were told the filling was lotus but we definitely detected hints of a tropical fruit that the lotus was concocted with. Nonetheless, the pancake was tasty and we were glad we ordered it despite everyone being full already.
