I came to Hua Ting with high expectations, perhaps a little too high.
An old school establishment which has been around for ages, the place is popular for business dining.
At a recent visit, I started out with the Hot and Sour Soup ($12 per bowl). No surprises here as it reminded me a lot of the Americanised Chinese soup that I had in the US.
I then tried the Sweet and Sour Prawn, which once again reminded me of the Chinese food that I had in the US.
My next dish, the garlic broccoli was well executed - slightly sauteed in garlic and very crunchy.
The next dish, the dried chilli chicken had a good level of tenderness and was not very spicy.
Probably the best dish of the night had to be the "live" Soon Hock ($9.50 per 100grams). The freshness of the fish steamed in light soya sauce was evident in every bite.
The final dish of fried rice was a little disappointing as it was dry and did not have "wok hei".
Overall, food was alright, but I felt that prices were a little steep and one could get a good Chinese fix without having to pay such high prices.
