The restaurant is clean, comfortable and frills-free. I expected the decor to be more elaborate, since its entrance looks grand and impressive.
Our server promptly brought a tray of 12 condiments and gave us time to concoct our own dipping sauce. I mixed up a conservative garlic, chilli and soy sauce blend. As you can see, Hubby’s more adventurous.
We had Traditional Pork Bone Soup
and Sichuan Spicy Soup
. The 3rd option was Chicken Soup
. Broths are made daily from scratch and simmered for hours. The Sichuan Spicy Soup was bold and fiery! It was way too spicy for me so I ate from the pork bone soup base only. Hubby felt that the Sichuan Spicy soup was very shiok though.
Ingredients are very fresh and of superb quality, as evident in the pictures. During CNY, only set meals are available, and one cannot order from the a la carte menu, which was disappointing as I was craving for bamboo shoots and fish balls. Our set included Live prawns, Sliced Abalone, Empress Clam, Fish Maw, USA Diced Marble Beef, Prawn Balls, Pork Balls, Vegetable & Pork Wanton, Shrimp Dumplings, Fresh Cuttle Fish Noodles, Deep Fried Fish Skin, Deep Fried Beancurd Skin, Assorted Vegetables, Silky Beancurd
and Inaiwa Udon.
