Average Chinese dishes

Having been to Yan Palace @ Warren Country Club some years back for dimsum lunch but not having great impression, I decided to give it another shot - this time at the Hong Lim Complex outlet at Chinatown. The restaurant is furnished in traditional Chinese restaurant style - complete with carpeted floors and big round tables with white tablecloth.  Disappointingly, they do not serve any dimsum at all for dinner, so *Edwin and I had to make do with ordering a few ala carte dishes for sharing.

I decided to try the Venison Broth with Egg White (SGD$5.00). The venison cubes were not too tender, but retained the sweet natural flavor of venison meat. The silken soft tofu cubes were a good contrast, and the egg white soup was clear enough to complement the flavor of its ingredients.

The Cod Fish in Beer (SGD$12.00) that I had been looking forward to was a little disappointing. The cod, while buttery smooth and luscious in its natural form, was definitely not enhanced by the overly sweet flavor of the beer sauce it was infused in. The gooey and far-too-sweet sauce somewhat reduced the flavor of the cod by a huge tad; might've been lovelier if it had been a bitterer beer for this dish.

We also had the Crispy Duck with Yam Paste (SGD$24.00) - a bit of a carbo overload, but nonetheless a delicious indulgence. The fried yam was very crispy on the outside, and we loved the coarsely sweet flavor of yam. The duck meat was ensconced within the crispy fried yam slices, turning the dish into a savoury-sweet combination of multi-textures.

really, really surprisingly good chinese food at this dodgy-looking, super old-school restaurant in chinatown. the place definitely seems to have had better days – the exterior is just as worn and outdated as the interior, the servers are cantankerous and grouchy, but the food – the food is good.   let’s talk about the restaurant first – the unimposing entrance to the place completely belies the hugeness of the dining area. we’re talking old-school, banquet-able (in the region of 20-30 tables, possibly more?), with a huge stage in the middle and private rooms surrounding the side. it looks like it would have been impressive in its heyday, but the furnishings are now pretty worn out, and the staff looking nearly as tired as their surroundings.   but thankfully, the food completely outshines all these (not that it’s terribly difficult to do so).

PLUS POINT: As I'm a heavy plain water drinker, I always see my beverage topped up whenever my cup is half empty. Not kidding. Or maybe they have lesser customers in house so they have nothing better to do hahaha. Yep i'm satisfied with their service! 

So we decided to go ahead with the 2-pax set menu @ $38++ together with a plate of Hokkien Noodles (aka Fu Jian Mian).
