Brought dad here for his birthday to try out the new kid on the block.
Standard of food and presentation of food was somewhat lacking. Unlike the previous Galley restaurant, the dishes available were rather uninteresting.
Have had similar dishes at other Zi Char stalls that had more punch.
Recommended were the string beans which were so so. Presentation for this was rather pathetic with a few strings of beans served on a plate literally.
Chills crab was much better than Jumbo as far as the gravy is concerned. Crab was said to be Sri Lankan but the powdery texture suggested otherwise. Was rather pricey at $108 for two crabs of average quality.
Stir fried bitter gourd with salted egg yolk was a good combination but still lacked some depth as a dish.
Crispy fried chicken looked and tasted like something you could get from a chicken rice stall at a hawker centre so nothing much to shout about with that one.
Steam herbal prawns was also very very pedestrian as they do not use live prawns but frozen ones. Hardly any herbal taste to be frank. The ones at Pin Si Safra Yishun is still by far the best I have had this far.
Total bill for 8 dishes is 330 for 9 pax. Pricey for very average or maybe even below average fair.
