Had the honour to join a team of awesome food-lovers for an early takeaway Chinese New Year Food Tasting from Yum Cha! What's more? The location of the takeaway food tasting was at The Oceanfront @ Sentosa Cove! Definitely enjoyed the company, as well as the wonderful scenery around that area. Managed to snap a few photos of the scenery as well as the Yacht Club nearby! But.. I've got to say before I start reviewing, that the food served isn't that superb...Yum Cha even provided a table with all
Definitely enjoyed the company, as well as the wonderful scenery around that area. Managed to snap a few photos of the scenery as well as the Yacht Club nearby! But.. I've got to say before I start reviewing, that the food served isn't that superb... Yum Cha even provided a table with all the dishes for us to take pictures! We started of the Food Tasting with a Lo-Hei! The ingredients included in the Lo Hei is pretty normal, which can be found in almost every Lo Hei that we can find outside. Salmon was also included in the Lo Hei, but the salmon is quite normal as well.
[Will rate the Lo Hei 2.5/5] That's how the Yu Sheng looked like after we have added in all the sauces, salmon as well as prosperity crackers! All set to Lo Hei for this upcoming Monkey Year! We also managed to tasted the Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage in Lotus Leaf. This is one of my most disappointed dish amongst all. The Fried Rice is very dry, perhaps because it's a takeaway menu, thus the rice has turned cold. Nevertheless, that shouldn't be used as an excuse. [Will rate this Fried Rice 1/5] Next up is the Fried Crispy Chicken! Again, its very dry and cold. Thus, I would say that this dish is not recommended as well. [Will rate this Chicken 1.5/5]
We also tried the Braise Pig's Trotter with 'Fatt Choy'. Didn't tried much of this dish, but I would say that the sauce is not bad. But too much fats. [Will rate this Pig's Trotter 2/5] Last but not least, its the BBQ Suckling Pig!! I would say that this is the only salvage of that night's Food Tasting! Skin is still crispy after quite a long time. Thus, plus point for this! [Will rate this BBQ Suckling Pig 3/5]
Overall it was still great with the scenery as well as the company! Food definitely got to be improve. Nontheless, please continue to support Yum Cha for their Chinese New Year Menu! [I believe their dine-in menu will be much better!]
