good food & service

Very satisfied by the meal. Went for the HGW promotion - half a herbal duck with a booking of min $20 alacarte dishes for 4-10 pax. Also ordered half a dangui duck, a large baby kailan w salted fish n lime, a medium seafood fried rice w xo sauce and a wheatgrass bean curd. Between the two duck dishes I personally felt the dangui one had crisper skin, both sauces were good but the herbal one was sweeter. The baby kailan was awesome, probably my favorite dish.

Casual dinning, good quality food at affordable price. Roast duck is definitely one of the best you can find in Singapore. Online reservation available at HGW for 4 pax and above.

Once in a while when we want to have a good meal Chinese style, we'd go to Dian Xiao Er and order their set meal. I like it that the price and number of dishes on their set menu is planned according to how many people there are, and I absolutely love almost all the dishes, from the soup to the fish, vegetables and of course their specialty duck. I also like that there's the healthy family set. It's no doubt why everytime we go to Dian Xiao Er, we order the family set. A suggestion - they should provide dessert at the end of the set meal! Makes the meal more complete. 

I like their soups. I never fail to finish every drop. Nicely brewed. Their white rice, though something seemingly very simple, is also of superior quality. Impressive rice. The Baby Kailan with salted fish and lime was super appetising and opened up my appetite. The Kailan was cooked just right everytime I ate it, with the added crunch. I normally prefer Mongolian Spare Ribs to Dongpo Ribs. The Mongolian Spare ribs were marinated well, though a little spicy (absolutely bearable) and on the oily side. On to their famous roasted duck! Crisp skin, wonderful sauce, tender meat, and not oily! But sometimes their meat were cut into portions too small - and the portion for 4 may not necessarily be enough for big eaters!

Ambience wise... a little like eating in a village with their traditional setting (stools) with some mini calligraphy (though not the cutlery and utensils). Service was ok. But there was once when an auntie served us and kept emphasising that a glass of water costs 30 cents! I think she wanted us to order other drinks instead of plain water but we already said we wanted water. It was irritating to hear her repeat the price. Other than that, the others were mostly PRCs and they were generally ok.

Recommended for family lunches/dinners.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
