last evening, we had a birthday dinner for another close friend at tunglok signature @ central on 27.5.2015. ^^
we can see from the photos that the presentation & colours of the 2 dishes at tunglok were better. taste-wise they were close – the roast pork烧肉 about same, the salted egg prawns maybe tunglok a tad better.
we had the deep-fried cod fillet that seemed to be salted egg flavoured also. it was a well executed dish, somewhat oily. not really a preferred preparation for me.
the same dentist friend & mei mei had a birthday dinner for me in 2013 here at this same tunglok outlet. we had star garoupa fillet with broccoli & lily bulbs & that was very good. of course for me, steamed fish is the best. haha!^^
we had the elegant 三层楼, which is a tunglok long standing dish of fried bean curd on spinach & shimeji mushrooms.
there was a newer dish of charcoal tofu with lily bulbs 百合.
both tofu dishes were very nice!
next was a string beans with egg plant. just mildly spicy (if any at all) & quite nicely done.
another dish was a bit unusual combination, some squash with japanese edamame & slightly sweet sauce. can’t figure out this dish.
as it was a birthday, the restaurant provided complimentary longevity buns 流沙寿桃.
they were presented together with our own birthday cake, and handwritten “calligraphy” by a talented restaurant manager. haha!
the message changes according to occasions, so the guy must have a whole bookcase of them. haha!^
If you think you're going to get a meal like what the website or menu suggests, you'll be sadly mistaken. the food is not well presented, not even close to what the menu shows, and the taste is even more disappointing. It seems like all their sauces are diluted store bought sauces, nothing your five year old can't whip up. Portions are minuscule, despite serving shriveled up lettuce leaves That was fit to be discarded Definitely not worth going.

my buddies organised a belated birthday dinner for my wife on 19.11.2014. :-)
my friend’s god sister again pre-ordered the food. & she arranged the wine & cake too. :-)
we had the roast pork (烧肉), which was really excellent. skin was very crispy & the texture & taste was marvellous, & not too fatty.
the double boiled soup (炖汤) with sea whelk, black garlic & chicken was super too. this 1 of few soups that could match & better the very good lie tong (例汤) here. very sweet & tasty.
:-we had the spinach tofu (三层楼) with shimeji mushrooms & broccoli, which is another signature dish here. it was very good. :-)
next was a salted egg cod fish fillet. it was very well done. cod was very good. for me & also my wife though, the dish was deep-fried & even though it was done well & not very oily, it could not match the simple steamed cod with mui choy (梅菜)。
likewise wasabi mayo prawns was well done & nicely presented. it came with mangoes & salad. presentation was superior to peach garden’s yuzu prawns. taste wise peach garden’s equally good. yuzu taste was great & dish better w/o the mayo.
there was a miscommunication with the server. we thought there were 7 dishes & waited for the noodles & dessert. but it turned out that friend’s god sister arranged 5 dishes & instructed the restaurant to take our orders for the carb & dessert.
anyway we were really full with the 5 dishes & there was also the birthday cake, so we decided to skip the carb & dessert. just as well! :-)
tunglok provided a complimentary salted egg longevity bun (流沙寿桃) & after signing the birthday song, the servers recited the the 生日快乐十全美 verses. service was excellent! they also provided complimentary star fruit juice. :-)
the cake was a nutty chocolate banana from swissbake. i liked the cake though could not taste the nutty part. :-)
it was a very enjoyable, memorable evening.
