A revisit

We had dinner at this familiar Teochew restaurant @ Bedok one Sunday evening.

Homemade Teochew Prawn Ball - The heh zhor was pretty nice; Deep fried till crisp on the outside with nice crunchy bits on the inside (probably from the chestnut) sans the excessive fat meat. Accompanied with a mildly sweet plum sauce.

Stir Fried Broccoli with Prawns - Competently executed, the broccoli wasn't overcooked and sported a nice garlicky stir fry whilst the prawns were reasonably sized and crunchy.

Teochew Braised Duck - Thickly sliced and trickling with runny but flavourful gravy, the braised duck was tender with a nice roughness to it and flavourful. Served on a bed of sliced, relatively silky beancurd. Nice!

Beancurd with Shimeiji Mushroom - Smooth, savoury beancurd topped with minced pork and Shimeiji mushrooms. What's not to like? I could just have this with rice!

Teochew Yam Paste with Pumpkin - Ending off our satisfying meal was the orh nee, which I make it a point to order at every Teochew restaurant, regardless of how stuffed I may be. And Chin Lee's rendition is still one of the best in my humble opinion. Wonderfully smooth and fragrant without coming across as cloyingly sweet even though it seemed to be sitting in a pool of syrup. I had seconds, naturally.

Prices seem to have crept up a little but still remain relatively reasonable at about $90 for 4pax. Food quality is definitely a few notches above average and service is decent, considering the amount of part timers they hire. Reservations are highly recommended unless you don't mind dining early (530pm).

Poor service and steep misc charges

Celebrated a birthday recently. Service from the senior staff taking reservation and order is deplorable. Misc charges also on the high side. will not return again after repeated poor service, though food is ok

The shrimp roll WOW!!

The food is hot. I like the service staff who's rather prompt. Try as they might and even disclaim that they are short on service staff. I mean where else does that? They did a good job trying to please us.

The shrimp roll and seafood roll is super!

Frozen pig leg (De Kar Dang) is another supper dish!

Braised duck so-so though and I am sure there are many other better than them.

God bless the teochew!

What happen to authenic teochew taste?

Seem standard has greatly drop. It is Saturday and business is so so and the taste isn't as great as before. Overall it has lost the teochew taste, start to feel like a normal coffee ship Zhi Cha. Another place I need to start skipping.

disappointed dinner

6 of us went to this restuarant on 18-2-1014 based on website good reviews and recommendations. Food was average and we only ordered 5 dishes and yam paste and the total bill was $270+! each of us paid abt $45!this is a neighbouhood resturant and we never expected it to cost so much.  never order their signature dish:cold crab, steam promfret and fish maw soup! Almost every dish was simply expensive!  we didnt even order beer or soft drinks and its oredi so pricey.  the website review is so misleading and burnt our pockets!  we could easily get the similar food variety at Quan le Yuan or Mu Liang Ji and they are value for money.Will never patronise this Chin Lee place ever again!
