For lunch, there was a total of 18 items on the menu, with of those 3 desserts. It looked limited, but it was more than enough to enough up the appetites for the 3 of us. Surprisingly on a Sunday lunch time, the place was pretty empty. It could because it was raining heavily outside with the place not sheltered to the nearest bus stop or MRT station. Besides us, there was only 2 other occupied tables. So it was pretty easy to get the attentions of the staffs around.
Sweet turnips, beancurd & eggs, served with potato dressing
It was like traditional rojak, topped with non spicy indian rojak sauce.
Lok Bak 卤肉
Deep-fried beancurd, yam, ngoh hiang & fish cake
Served with sweet sauce and chilli sauce. The five spice roll was meaty and quite flavourful on its own. The yam roll was quite unique, as it was coated with a thin crispy batter, while soft inside.
Belachan Kay 虾酱鸡
Deep-fried chicken marinated with shrimp paste
It was actually deep fried chicken wings. The meat was juicy, with hints of the shrimp paste without too salty.
Jiu Hu Eng Chye 鱿鱼蕹菜
Blanched cuttlefish with water spinach and shrimp paste
One like that young water spinach ( also commonly known as kang kong) was used in this dish which made it easy to chew. The cuttlefish was tender and well flavour without overwhelming. The paste coating the cuttle fish was not spicy, which made it easy for the little ones to enjoy this dish too.
Tu Boh Sui 白灼八爪鱼
Blanched baby octopus served with peanut chili dip
Simple but addictive dish which we requested for seconds.
Oyster omelette with chives & chilli
Eggy and gooey texture. Would prefer a more crispy edge.
Fruit rojak with homemade shrimp paste
Non spicy but well flavoured. Could not help wishing for some crispy dough fritters to go with it.
Stingray Panggang 烧烤方鱼
Grilled stingray marinated with sambal
Another favourite which we requested for seconds. Felt the second one was much better, as one could smell char burnt smell from the first one. The sambal paste was shiok to go with meaty juicy meat.
Sotong Panggang 烧烤苏东
Grilled squid marinated with sambal
This was quite addictive with its chewy texture. One wishing for a glass of beer to go with it.
Char Moi 炒粥
Fried porridge served with prawns
It was like having teochew style of porridge after given a stir fried.
Kueh Pie Tee 娘惹小金杯
Pastry cups with turnips, seafood & chilli dip
It tasted not bad with the delicate made in house cups, although it would be better had the vegetables braised longer.
Char Kway Teow 炒粿条
Rice noodles with prawns, cockles, sausage & eggs
Not bad, although I felt it lacking of wok feel.
Char Kway Kar 炒粿角
Rice cake with beansprout, pickled radish & eggs
It was the least favourite dish. One felt that it was fried with salt instead of the usual soya sauce, making the dish a tab too salty.
Nasi Lemak 椰浆饭
Coconut rice with kapitan chicken
One could smell the rich curry from far. The chicken was tender and flavourful. The rice was light and fluffly, just nice with the curry gravy alone.
Penang Laksa 阿三叻沙
Spicy fish broth noodles served with spring rolls
It was served in a tiny traditional rooster bowl. The soup looked light, was quite flavourful.
Bubur Cha Cha 摩摩查查
Yam, sweet potato & banana in coconut milk
It was served hot. The soup was rich and creamy. One may felt that it was a tab too sweet.
Si Quai Teng 四菓汤
Longan soup with barley, red beans, jelly & lotus seed
One remarked that there seems to have chopped sea coconut in the dish too. The soup was light without too sweet. Just nice for a cold wet day. Warming to the stomach.
Ice Cream Bread 冰淇淋夹面包
Local ice cream flavour of the day, served with bread
The ice cream was raspberry. It was served with rainbow coloured bread, making it felt very old school.
Overall most of the dishes were great. Like that most the dishes were not overwhelming or too spicy, which allowed one to add the spicy chilli paste to one's level.
