So my family and I came here for a dinner after it's newly renovated. We had the set menu for 10 pax at $488++FOOD
Since it's a Teochew restaurant setting, their first dish of the set menu is the Teochew-styled platter which comprises of slices of duck and pork, some pieces of tau pok, and many quarters of braised eggs. It's quite salty if eaten plainly without rice.
Saut�ed Scallops with Broccoli and X.O. Sauce
The scallops are well marinated with the XO sauce and the broccoli is well-cooked - not too hard or soft.
Sauteed Prawn Balls and Fried Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk
One of my favourite dish in the set menu. The fish skin is quite crispy, tantalizing one's tastebuds. The prawns balls on the other hand tastes more like a sotong ball though.
Traditional-style Steamed ‘Soon Hock’
The gravy is one of my "grading criteria" that I look for when tasting the different ways fish are being cooked. For this particular dish, I like the gravy. Not too salty, and is rather sweet-smelling, which makes it appealing.
Fish Maw Sea Cucumber with Seasonal Vegetables
The fish maw are soft and soggy, which are easy to bite. Taste good too!
Teochew-style Fried Mian Xian
The teochew-stlyed noodle, which has those standard ingredients cooked elsewhere. Taste quite bland and dry.
Chilled Coconut Lotus Seed Pudding served in Young Coconut
Lastly, this desert is my top favourite for the day! It's a newly-created desert that is wrapped by a coconut, which has coconut ice-cream and coconut pudding in it. The serving is topped off by lotus seeds, which creates the feeling of nuttiness in your tastebuds!SERVICE
I have always admired the service of Tung Lok Group Restaurants. I think their staffs are trained in a certain way that they must present the best service so as to promote the company's goodwill in customers. The staffs here will take the initiative to take extra chairs for you to place your bags on it, so that you can sit back comfortably on your chair. Brilliant move!
