a friend cooked an excellent lunch today for 6pax on 19.12.2014.
after that 4 of us went to JEM (jurong east mall) to watch “exodus”. carpark was full so we parked at westgate mall which was linked to JEM at level 2.
after the movie we walked back to westgate mall & had a light dinner at timhowan 添好运 (still full from the excellent lunch).
we dutifully ordered the crispy char siew pao.
i must have had one too many of this. had much better crispy char siew pao at canton paradise several times. didn’t like it as much it now.
har gao was good but for me canton paradise’s har gao & imperial treasure teochew’s har gao were better.
马拉糕 was never my thing, even at hong kong timhowan outlet – an enigma to me. tasted like “wa kor kuay”.
teochew dumpling 潮州粉粿 was competent.
fu pei quin 腐皮卷 & fried carrot cake were ok.
anyhow overall the food was really mediocre, which to me meant a disappointment.
dinner was just S$39 but we had very little food for 4pax.
for me, there is no reason to have these average food when i can get better food at canton paradise, imperial treasure & crystal jade for largely the same price.
