Seafood Dinner

Tonight the family has dinner at this restaurant. As the indoor aircon dining area is full, we are seated in 2 tables in non aircon area under the row of fans. Quite cooling.

We start the meal with Cold Crabs. Special cutlery is provided. It is full of roe. Goes quite well with the vinegar dip. Not quite the dish for me as I do not like to use my bare hands.

Next we have the Peking Duck. The sliced skin is served wrapped in crepes, with cucumber and spring onion served on the side. Remember to spread some of the sweet sauce on the crepe and add some cucumber and spring onion before eating. Tastes not bad, but would like the skin to be crispier.

Next is a plate of stir fried greens which I feel is abit too oily but still quite crunchy.

For soup, we are served invidual serving of shark's fin with bean sprouts and coriander on the side. Barely tastes any of the shark's fin.

Next we have one of the signature dishes which is the Steamed Bamboo Clam with Minced Garlic. Have a bit of problems when deciding which cutlery to use as there is fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks. In end uses fork and knife. Like it that there is glass noodle which soaks up the clam's flavours.

Next we have Steamed Cod which is quite juicy with barely any bones.

This is followed with Braised Duck with Cabbage and Bamboo Shoot. Looks spicy and doe not tastes spicy. The vegetable is very flavourful and well braised.

Next is the Stir Fried Lobster with Garlic. Simple but the meat tends to stick onto the shells.  

Spinach in Stocks looks like a simple and healthy dish with its assorted mushrooms, carrots and minced pork. Letdown by the funny taste of the canned mushrooms.

Next is the Fried Ee Fu Mian which is simple with some vegetables, but a funny sandy texture.

For dessert, we have

Green Bean Soup with Kelp
Quite unique with the small pieces of seaweed in this dessert.

Yam Paste
Not bad, but seeds are not removed from the gingko nuts found in the dessert.

Also have a serving of Steamed Chicken for takeaway as we have ordered a bit too much and cannot finish the meal. The chicken tastes quite juicy and goes quite well with the minced garlic sauce that served with it.

Overall food is not bad. Service is great with plates changed often and tea refilled often. There valet parking available too, so one does not have to waste time to find parking lot.

Superb Lobster & Abalone Lunch @ Chao Yue Xuan on 21Aug2013

See my full reviews & photos here = http://chefquak.com/2013/08/22/superb-lobster-abalone-lunch-chao-yue-xuan-on-21aug2013/

this was a superb 8-course set at chao yue xuan and for just S$38 + S$2.50++pax for peanuts, tea & towels.    in terms of quality of ingredients & taste, it was quite superior to the value lobster set i had there previously.  i would say it was equal even better than the fine dining lobster & abalone set at xin cuisine.   the 5 of us were there at 1pm on 21.8.2013, the restaurant was 1/2 full & we had a table at a private corner.   the starter was a shredded
lobster in signature pumpkin sauce

Good Value 8-course Lobster Set

Read full reviews & photos in my blog=Value Dinner Set @ Chao Yue Xuan (潮悦轩) on 1.3.2013

bought 2xS$35nett 8-course Chao Yue Xuan (潮悦轩) groupon vouchers, so duly visited the restaurant.  This is the same Ah Yat branch & location at UE Square along Mohamed Sultan Road, only they have changed the name to mean a “pleasing teochew pavilion”..at S$35nett the meal did turn out pleasing enough though nothing teochew  decor & ambience wise though the place is a bit dowdy, and in fact though this branch is located at UE Sqaure, Turf City has better ambience! there were 3 tables of
