Nice Set Dinner @ Chef Chan’s Restaurant on 22Oct2014

See my full reviews & photos at =http://chefquak.com/2014/10/23/early-birthday-dinner-chef-chans-restaurant-on-22oct2014/

my 2 close buddies organised an early birthday dinner at chef chan's for me & for my wife on 22.10.2014. :-) i looked up the menu. & picked the S$80 for 2pax 5-course menu (above photo), which looked about alright. :-) chef chan’s restaurant was located at national museum. nice colonial building with nicely furnished & decorated interior. #1 deep fried belly pork with fermented bean curd was quite an excellent dish. deep fried pumpkin with pork floss was pretty good too. it’s a bit like variation of deep-fried egg plant with pork floss which i liked too. #2 braised compoy thick soup with 4 treasures was very average though, not tasty enough. i was expecting a much better soup at chef chain’s since 1 of his 3 signatures (三绝) was a soup. the ah yat abalone seafood soup was way better & most of tunglok & imperial treasures lie tong (例汤) would be better than this. the #3 steamed cod with preserved olive vegetables & black beans was good. the flavours were excellent. #4 the signature chef chain’s famous crispy roast chicken. the skin was crispy & chicken breast was moist & sweet (a test of whether chicken was good, quite a few restaurants turned out dry roast chicken). the #5 fried rice with seafood wrapped in lotus leaf was also a tasty dish & had a lot of diced prawns etc. my wife liked the #6 doubled boiled pear & aloe vera with red dates served chilled. it was light, refreshing, not too sweet. my friend brought an apple millecrepe from classic cakes. it was good. initially i felt it was not as smooth & creamy as the one at lady M. but actually with the apples, there was a bit more bulk & the combination tasted better, c/w with eating what felt like all cream. looked like there were only 2 tables for this evening. our neighbour was a well dressed couple about our age & they joined in singing happy birthday. the husband quipped that the children were away & no one reminded him to buy cake. so we offered to rent him our cake for the photos..haha just kidding! :-)anyway we got the restaurant to serve them 2 slices of the millecrepe. the restaurant followed up with a longevity bun (寿桃) with a candle & my friend took the photos for them.  very commendable service!:-) overall, it was an enjoyable evening with my wife & close friends over a nice quite dinner & nice ambience. food was mostly above average, maybe not so refine as majestic & tunglok, and cheap & tasty as imperial treasure.

Not wow

I had the opportunity to attend a biz lunch there and had the set lunch at $38++ per pax. The photos, by the way, are terrible as I had to sneakily snap them with my phone.

The Custard Feeling

The very first time that we went to eat was during Dim Sum and when it was located at Odeon Tower. It went to shift to another place whereby I couldn't keep trace where did it settle at. Until it reappeared to my knowing, now it's at the national museum. However, the theme and the environment

Fantastic Experience

We threw a corporate function for about 25 people one evening. We really wanted our guests to attend and venue had to be a spot-on. True enough, other than 2 'genuinely unable', everyone came. The set-up was in the main hall, which is usually empty on a normal day. The ambience was already a
