Finally, my wife's dream to eat in this resto came true today. I have been asking her to have lunch or dinner since its opening, but due to proximity from our place, it was not that convenient. Not until she needs to attend an HQ meeting nearby the place, she asked me if we can have lunch there.
We went there, around almost 1 PM and although there are a lot of customers there, there is space made available to us.
Service was fast, in less than 5 minutes all the food were served.
I like the tea pot and the tea cup, so stylish that I have to be very delicate in handling it. The ambiance was fine.
I am a fan of peppery bak kuh teh and so the moment it was served my wife did the first taste of the soup and she confirmed that "this is really good". The meat was tender and juicy and what i like most if the fat that is in between the meat and the ribs. I like the unlimited soup as well. I would always prefer the ribs soaked in the soup, than the meat or rib appearing on top of my bowl.
We also tried the signature char siew. I am not really that fan of char siew so I have no point of comparison except my own version of BBQ. My wife said comparing with the rest of what she has tasted this is thus far, theirs is juicy and tender and not dry, which is common to what she has tasted.
Today, the outstanding was the smoked duck. My wife is not a fan of duck meat because there is always the "duck taste" that she does not like much. But for the first time that she had liked duck meat. We both like the smoky taste and to me it is a duck "ham". The skin fat was great and the meat was very tender.
Good that it is a normal working day and customer start to leave when the manager Adrian approached our table and asked about how we find the food. We were also given the privilege of tasting their up-coming dish - something being roasted. This is one of my favourites - roasted pork, where you hear the crackling sound of crunchiness that feels like bursting in my ears! This is award winning for me as some roasted pork would tend to be saltier to make it crunchy, but was not. It comes with a sour sauce/dip that compliments the taste of the pork. This is a must try in the days to come as this is not yet available in the menu.
We are not chefs but we love to cook and make use of our culinary tastes of mixing flavours and textures. Eating has always been fun for us because in a country of multi-racial and multicultural society, we associate it with multi-flavours and multi-textures. New tastes and textures just stay in our taste buds and when the time comes for cooking, we try to get those tastes in our own versions, especially when cooking for loved ones who often visit us, to showcase the Singapore taste in our food. But that is not the point of my review. I want other people fond of looking for places to have alternatives.
To enjoy the tastes and flavours that is close to my preference direct to my stomach and close to heart, we will be back!
