Hot Soup Smile Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court | Chinese Soup

I'd recommend coming here after the dining crowd has gone as the condiments in the soup tends to be more bountiful at the end of the day. We wanted a light dinner but ended up leaving really full cause there were a lot of ingredients in the soup.

 
Herbal Chicken Soup
Lots of 'dang gui' essence inside and there was noticeably a lot of herbs used to make this soup. There was an entire chicken leg inside which was really juicy and full of meat.

 
Buddha Jump over the wall
Lots of mushroom, yam, and fish maw inside. You can see that this soup will really give a lot of energy to the Buddha to 'successfully' jump over the wall.
 
Spending per head: Approximately $5(Dinner)

Beat the queue Smile Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Restaurant | Dim Sum | Noodles | Kids-Friendly

I finally got to understand the craze of Tim Ho Wan one fine Sunday. The trick to having Tim Ho Wan for dinner on a weekend is to be there early. I was there at 5-6pm and there was no queue at all and could waltz right in. I know this would not have been possible at the Plaza Singapura branch.

The menu is the paper placemat that your cultery is placed on and you take your own order before you pass it to the waiter. Take note that hot tea and water is refillable while the Barley water isn't.

Tim Ho Wan is famous for its "4 Heavenly Kings". One of them is the Char Siu Bao and they are pretty much the recommended 'what you should eat' if you visit the place. However, I wasn't a fan of the Ma Lai Gao, and I had other dimsums that I wanted to try, instead of the 4 kings.

Phoenix Claws in Abalone Sauce
One of their speciality dishes that was available on one of those promo slips. The sauce was very prominent and the chicken feet was very chewy. I liked that they removed the claws from the feet as it disturbs me when dimsum restaurants don't do that

Shrimp Dumplings (Ha Gao)
Quite standard fare. The dumplings were served hot and the skin was still intact (not broken). The shrimps were decent and they were quite generous about the amount of shrimp inside.

Cheong Fun (with intestines)
A little disappointed in this because it wasn't what I was looking for. They had the standard orange peel inside which I'm not a fan of.

Highlight: Poh Luo Char Siu Bao
This was really a delightful surprise and I could see why other tables were ordering this dish non-stop and packing it away in their paper boxes, however, I believe everyone should have it when it's fresh out of the kitchen as it was really delicious. The bread was hot and the contents were still steaming though we had left it on the table for a bit as we were finishing up the other dishes. The sauce was just right and the char siu inside had enough fat without being stuck in your teeth and without you wanting to spit it out.

 
The total bill wasn't very cheap, but I think the experience was worth it. If I was to go back, I would definitely order the Char Siu Bao and perhaps try their Luo Mai Gai (Glutinous rce) and the Hong Kong Porridge.

'No see sky' char siu Smile Nov 26, 2013

Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Hawker Centre

You can identify this stall with the long queue...for wanton noodles. Don't be surprised though, because the char siu is amazingly worth it.

The 'no see sky' or bu jian tian char siu is sinfully delicious with just the right amount of sauce and fat. Your heart may not thank you for it so much, but your tummy and palate will.

Be prepared to line up if you do come down to try it, but try to be here early cause the best char siu will run out of stock. I was here before 1 and was one of the last ones to get the best part.
The noodles are chewy and Q (just my favorite type of texture) and the wantons win the soup wasn't too salty. Yum!tongue

Beef Pho Cry Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Vietnamese | Food Court | Noodles

I'm a huge fan of Beef Pho, but I'm sad to say that the pho was rather disappointing.
I think I will try to break it down by what they did right and wrong.

What they did right: had the correct noodles, basil leaves, had the lemon
What was not right:
- The soup base while somewhat correct, felt like a vital ingredient was missing that did not allow the pho to hit the spot.
- Could have more veggies
- There was a lot of noodles
- The beef slices were not very thin and was quite chewy..I usually do not waste my meat, but I was unable to chow down on it. Made me question the freshness of the meat.

 
If I could, I feel like I would want my money & stomach space back...

Their Som Tum (Papaya salad) looked legit, but I tried a bit and it didn't taste right. The Phad Thai did look to be more authentic...(appearance-wise)
Perhaps offering Thai and Vietnamese cuisine in one stall is too ambitious for them and they should get one cuisine right first.

Specialty Dishes OK Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese

This branch has undergone a lot of renovations in recent months. Due to labor laws, the waiters and waitresses are usually rather shorthanded. However, the restaurant tries to always introduce new dishes to get their customers to keep coming back.

This dish is a vegetable dish which was one of those special dishes available for a limited time. It looks like cucumber slices, but the waitress said it's one of those 'wild' vegetables. At Tung Lok, you can cook your dish to order so we decided to omit the small fried shrimp and the cook decided to flavor it in other ways. The portion was rather huge, tasty, and would have paired well with rice.

 

 
Their crayfish dish is quite delightful-- cooked with pepper, salt, and soy sauce, it's very flavorful. If it was more affordable, it might just be what I may order every time I decide to visit Tung Lok Signatures.

The restaurant does a good job in getting customers to return with their reward programs, as well as, their complimentary fruit juices (served in a test tube), and dessert
