Decided to try My Humble House since it's the upper tier of the tung lok group. Made reservations yesterday itself so wasn't able to get a good seat by the window. So ensure you book early to avoid getting a seat you don't want. We were given a normal table and chair which was definitely way worse than its supposed to be. I cannot remember the exact names of the dishes but we ordered the shark cartilage, prawn with grape salsa, roasted scallop with garlic paste, bailing mushroom with truffle, 3 egg vege, crispy kurabuta pork rib, fish noodle, marble goby fillet.
The first 3 dishes were fabulous. The brought out the pork, scallop and prawns first which i believe is their signature dishes. Some reviewers complain abt the pork being too dry, i beg to differ. The key to all 3 dishes were the sauce going so well with the meat. The pork, prawn, scallops were cooked too perfection. Not overcooked at all. However, the others that came along were disappointing. The 2 vegetables were bad.. i can cook the 3 egg veg better than that.. and the bailing mushrooms is not better off than wedding banquet standard. I've tried the fish at wan hao and mandarin court with different cooking style, this by far rank as the lowest. Maybe a bit harsh to compare cod and sea perch with marble goby but yeah. The fish noodle i will give 60 marks as best. For the price we pay for a place like that, every dish should be on par with the 1st 3 dishes mentioned above, no compromise. All in all we spent $136 before discount, with discount was still ok. Otherwise, i wouldn't be back. Service wise they were ok only. Very prompt in clearing our plates but i don't know how to put it.. not to extent which i will label as exceptional. Haven't seen exceptional service in Singapore for the longest time.
