This is a place my husband used to come and dine with his friends in the band. When we first started going out, knowing that I fancied chicken, he took me here to try their chicken. It was not bad! The chicken was served cold, making it a nice summertime meal. This time round, I was already during my second trimester of my pregnancy. I'd gradually regained my appetite for chicken, although many times, I still prefer beef. My tummy wasn't bulging out so much then, so it was still okay to ride on the back of the scooter. Now, I can only go on short rides. Long rides make me feel quite uncomfortable... So I guess if I do want to come back for their chicken rice, it'll have to wait till the baby arrives.
My impression of the place was that they served the meal with a gigantic spoon. I don't know why I didn't get that gigantic spoon this time.
Another impression was that the people there had really loud voices...
Tea was served for every table, but being pregnant, I wanted to avoid tea as much as I could (since I love Thai milk tea so much, that's about the only tea I drink). When I asked for plain water, I was a bit shocked that they didn't provide any...
The main course was the chicken, of course. But there are three side dishes that comes with it. They weren't bad, but there wasn't anything special about them either. The protagonist was the chicken, so as long as the chicken was delicious enough, I didn't really care that much.
Pork chop - what my husband ordered. This time, it was served with the gigantic spoon I mentioned earlier. I tried once, stuffing the spoon into my mouth... okay, it wasn't a smart thing to do... Don't do it.
The side dishes were quite similar. The pork chop was quite nice. It was nice and tender. Pretty juicy too. But I still prefer the chicken.
We once came with my husband's friends in the band for a feast. Most of the dishes were quite nice. It's located in the alley by Living Mall. There are quite some places in these alleys that seem worth trying! The one adjacent to this place seemed crowded all the time... Might give it a try some time.
Afterwards, we came for dessert as an ending to this meal. During that time, it was the only way I'd feel full after a meal!
I had wanted to have some lemon jelly (aiyu), but the shopowner said they were out.... It was still noon! How was that possible? So, we ordered douhua and their signature opium fen yuan (tapioca balls - don't worry, opium is just a name, not an ingredient!!)
It seemed to have a lot of ice in it, but once you mix it up a bit, it would all melt, diluting the sugar syrup and also perfecting the taste.
Douhua - also with tapioca balls.
Then, we noticed something interesting... These Chinese characters were printed upside down. But if it faces you, then you'd be able to read it. A bit redundant if you ask me. Once you turn the bowl around, if it's printed the right way up, you can still make out the words just fine!
