I had Chinese New Year dinner hosted by my friend. The food was prepared by Ban Heng Restaurant.
The first dish was the Yu Sheng. The Yu Sheng was served with abalone. The Yu Sheng was chilling and the sauce was sweet and the carrot and raddish could absorb the sauce. The abalone was cut to the right cut as it was not too big or small.
The soup was the fried fish belly. It was starchy and boiled with egg and shredded carrot to add the colouring.
The third dish was the You Tiao. The You Tiao was crispy. It tasted more like eating Rojak.
The fourth dish was the stewed chicken. The strong heat must have softened the chicken and the sauce had absorbed into the meat which meat the taste great.
The fifth dish was the steamed Pomfret. The fish was not well done as it was overdone. There was little ginger added to remove the smell.
The sixth dish was the mushroom with abalone. I wondered if real abalone was served. It did not taste and bite like abalone. I suspected that this dish was more on vegetarian so mocked abalone would have used to serve.
The seventh dish was the dessert. Longan Jelly was served to refresh and clear the mouth. The Jelly was neither too sweet nor soft.
The waitress was prompt is response to service.
I enjoyed the meal.
