My bf and I had dinner here on 5 December 2007.  We were attracted by the beautiful dessert shaped like a bear (see last picture above) that I simply wanted to try.  However, when we went up to the restaurant, I was a bit disappointed to see that the beautiful dessert wasn’t on the menu.  I guessed it was only for lunch. 😦

Nonetheless, we ordered our food after mulling over the menu for quite some time. So many food, so small stomach!  Finally, we ordered the mixed vegetables in claypot (see picture 1 above), fried rice served in bamboo (see picture 2 above), fried chicken with fried garlic topping (see picture 3 above), boiled live prawns (min. 300g) (see picture 4 above).

Mixed vegetables was served in a claypot as you can see.  And it came with tang hoon (glass noodles) and assorted vegetables like cabbage, carrots, corn, etc.  Quite soupy so you can order it like a soup dish.

The fried rice served in bamboo is not the usual fried rice with char siew and peas.  This one is first fried with dried shrimps (hae bee) and then put in the bamboo to keep it warm.  Quite yummy!

Next dish was the fried chicken topped with fried garlic.  I loved this dish very much as the chicken skin was crispy and the fried garlic gave it a very nice flavour.  Excellent!

My bf’s favourite dish would of course be the boiled live prawns.  Although the prawns were merely boiled, the freshness of the prawns was enough to make this dish taste great!

At the end of your meal, you would be given 1 complimentary seasame ball for each customer.  Luckily, we cancelled our order for our dessert.

We were both too stuffed at the end of our meal.  Considering the 4 dishes we ordered, we paid less than S$100 for everything.  Quality was good and service was attentive and excellent (they cleared our dishes whenever needed and topped up our water without us asking; we were also given 8 cups of Chinese tea (I think it was tie guan ying)- 4 before meal and 4 after meal). Thumbs up!
