I know I know, I need to update more often. I've noticed that since the inception of this blog, the number of entries posted each month have been steadily decreasing. To think, I actually wrote 24 entries within the 30 days of September last year! But as if right now, I'm still getting used to this "experience all you can each day and try to blog in whatever remaining time you have left" type of lifestyle. Otherwise, I'd have no content to blog about. I just came back from Singapore last night and am going off to China and World Expo on Saturday. Rest assured that I took a lot of photos so lots to share soon!
It's one of those classy, elegantly decorated Chinese restaurants. Quite nice. I couldn't take a picture of inside the restaurant without feeling awkward, knowing that the numerous rich housewives who were there with their BMW's, Lexus and Mercedes in the parking lot would be starring at me.
Deep fried dough with pine seed 崧子炸兩腸. Average, the 腸粉 part was too thick and the deep fried dough part wasn't freshly fried, hence it was chewy instead of crispy. And such small portions! Only 8 pieces...
Milk tart with swallow's nest 燕窩奶撻皇. The milk custard filling was not bad but the crust was way too thick. Every bite was a mouthful of crust.
Deep fried meat dumpling 金珠咸水角. To be honest, I don't remember the verdict on this; no harsh criticisms nor happy faces come to mind so I'll assume it was average.
Crispy red bean & lotus root stick in coconut flavour 黃金椰汁紅豆蓮藕條. I've never seen this dish before at other restaurants. I thought it was not bad, just too sweet for my taste. However, my family didn't think it was that good. Not much red bean flavour (which I prefer so maybe that's why I thought it was alright).
Seafood dumpling in Guava shape 海鮮石榴餃. It looked cute, but the dumpling skin was too thick and had no taste. Average filling.
Chicken feet with gluten in Chu-Hou sauce 醬汁生根蒸鳳爪. Not bad, but 阿媽 liked the ones ata La Chine Cuisine 粵式生香 better.
Papaya & custard cake 木瓜千層馬拉糕. The sponge cake actually consisted of multiple layers which was nice. I didn't think the papaya added much to the cake though.
Milk and papaya puff 木瓜鮮奶酥. I forgot to take a picture of this dessert before eating it but it was pretty tasty.
