Gu Ma House”, the Chinese name for “Foodpot”, holds a special meaning for the Chan Family. Aside from having the idea that the food sold are private dishes that the Lady Boss “Gu Ma” cooks at home, “Gu Ma House” also became a second family gathering spot for the Chan Family.

 

The term “Gu Ma” comes from the Chinese way of nephews or nieces calling their eldest aunt. Being the eldest sister among the Chan Family, the Lady Boss is thus often called “Gu Ma” by her numerous nephews and nieces. Years ago, the Lady Boss once had a food stall in a food court near her house, selling mainly her signature Chicken Rice for 10 years. Among the Chan Family, “Gu Ma” has always been recognized as the best cook. She loved to organize family gatherings every now and then where she would be able to cook for the family, basking in the happiness of being able to eat as a complete, united family.

 

A few years back, she opened a restaurant in ShangHai, named “Shi Bo Le”. However, it was until last year that she decided that she would open a restaurant in Singapore, where she believed the Chan Family belonged. Hence, the Chan Family came together and opened a family restaurant named “Gu Ma House”. Ever since then, “Gu Ma House” became a place for families to gather, strengthening family bonds through the joy of eating. Therefore, “Gu Ma House” not only provides food that tastes like “home”, but also a strong symbol of the joy of a family.

The Kyoto pork ribs ($20), served lit on fire on a hot plate. The rib meat is soft, coated in slightly tangy sauce. Give this, and the seafood bergedil-like Auntie's signature homemade bean curd ($15) a try. Service at this Sennett Estate restaurant is helpful and lightning-fast. Skip the har cheong gai ($12) - it's too moist and it's made with too little prawn paste.

Thoroughly enjoyed the salted egg prawns (very fresh prawns) and the yinyang kailan. Iced honey lemon tea is highly recommended - delicious! Felt thirsty after the meal though so not sure if MSG was used. Shall return another time to give it another go.

Love the warm, affable service from Gu Ma herself and her crew at the restaurant. The feeling of "home" does not just come from the food, its equally evident in their service! Love the assam fish head, butter egg yolk crabs, yin yang kalian most! Read the full review on my blog - http://cherieladie.com/2014/03/03/gu-ma-jia-food-pot-food-review/
