You’ll never walk alone
At a glance, the striking resemblance o f the logo & name of this joint; shouts which club the owner follows. It was TGIF, a public holiday and my folks decided on a family communion to pass the day. Of the list of set lunches, we picked the one fit for 6pax.
Considering it was the long weekend, occupancy wasn’t overwhelming, and the dishes rolled out successively at a very consistent pace. The salmon & geoduck sashimi for starters served on shaved ice was a novelty, we left no trace of its existence in a jiffy.
The smoked pork belly drizzled in what seems to be a sweet plum sauce & mayonnaise buried shrimp was a hit for my nephew & niece, needless to say, I love everything that’s got to do with meat.
The roasted suckling pig was a starlet for the day, and we made its death worthwhile, didn’t spare the last trace of bone.
The sharks fin & fish maw soup didn’t quite meet my expectations, you help yourself to the scalded bean sprouts to add crunch to the taste.
The deep fried fish ('tilapia' i think) was crispy to the point, even the fins & bones were like crackers (not for kids & amateurs at fish eating)
Though I’m not a fan of vegetables, I’d consume for health reasons. The stir fried mushrooms & naibai got me wanting for more, and I was more than happy to finish it up when everyone had their fill.
For some reason, my suggestions for the style of which the crab was to be done, fell on deaf ears, and as I anticipated, the salted egg didn’t pack any punch.
For the putting shot, the eefu noodle (in my opinion) was a saving grace, in lieu of the anti-climax from the salted egg crab.
Dessert was red bean soup with strong orange zest, refreshing and good for the gastronomic track.
My folks being crab lovers were craving for more crab, and so decided to go for the chilli crab, against my recommendation, and didn’t quite meet my expectations.
The set menu was value for money where variety is concerned, and seafood lovers will have a smashing good time~!
