we had our monthly dinner 11pax at hung kang last evening on 18.8.2014.
last time i came here was the birthday whole suckling pig birthday dinner for my brother & sister in Jun2013.
menu still the same but saw some inflation from S$438 to S$468.
i liked the longevity buns though it was just tau sah.
#1 appetizer platter of spring rolls, jellyfish, chicken, trotter jelly was pretty ok though presentation (look) not the best. spring roll was good. trotter jelly just average. jellyfish the usual, chicken didn’t look great but tasted fine.
#2 sharkskin & fish maw soup was good very tasty!
#3 suckling pig good also. though i thought that chui huay lim & even ah yat were tastier.
#4 white cereal prawns. nothing much to comment, but i liked the usual cereal prawns much better.
#5 teochew steamed pomfret was very good! not “chow chor” aka fishy taste. excellent dish.
#6 sliced abalones with jingbai (京白) was pretty ok.
#7 fried noodles was just ok.
#8 pumpkin orh nee (金瓜芋泥) was ok. but not as good as many other places though, like chui huay lim or even muliangzai liang kee.
It's been quite a few years since we dine at this restaurant, so last Sunday (Nov/23) we (5 0f us) decided to try it out. We arrived at 7.20pm, and upon ordering our food, was most surprised that soy goose, soy duck, "or luak", crayfish, in that order were not available, reason being "all sold out at lunch time"!! Worse yet to come. The steamed pomfret was stale, and extremely "fishy', and the replacement pomfret was just as bad. Staff were most apologetic, apparent we were not the only complainants. The "soo chye" was bland, and the braised pork trotter with chestnuts must have been in the freezer for quite a while being being re-heated and served. Both the pomfret and braised trotter were left relatively untouched. Although the two senior waitresses were most helpful, polite and apologetic over this fiasco, it did nothing to alleviate the overall bad food quality and the unavailabilty of the main Teochew dishes. A truly unpleasant dining experience!
Friendly staff who willingly recommend dishes(that are also expensive) and good portions. Price was on the high side for me though because a bowl of oyster porridge was twenty dollars! Oyster omelette: poorly executed with random pockets of salt throughout the egg such tags sone vies will be fine while others will be a sodium overload. The fresh plump oysters were the saving grace. Spinach in clay pot: my favorite dish as the spinach tasted different from the normal boring steam or sautéed spinach. The sauce wasn't greasy too! Goose meat: this wasn't very memorable as I felt the goose was not very tender. Not much flavor wise either. Ngoh hiang: more refined than hawker fare but I would give this a miss next time. Yam paste: must be good because even my grandparents who don't have a lot of stomach space finished it
