I almost forgot about these pictures which I took once when I had lunch with a friend of mine - blame it again on my inefficient way of labeling my pictures. She had been raving on about this place hence I was keen to try it. Located in a bungalow, this restaurant is directly opposite the Beryl chocolate showroom. Kinda fun to walk in to that place which I did since I had some time to kill before lunch. Lots of variety and they even have chocolate covered potato chips a la Royce chocolate which mainly cater to the tourists. Parking here can be a pain though as it's pretty limited unless you park across the road where there's a paid parking.
My friend did the ordering and since it was the two of us, we had only a few dishes. This place is actually famous for steamboat and fresh seafood but we went for their cooked dishes. First, we had their famous pork neck dish cooked in a sweet and sour style. Although they have a few styles to cook the pork neck (one is satay as seen in the other blog review), the most popular is their sweet and sour. I felt the sauce was slightly too sweet, a sign of too much maltose in it but totally loved the soft pork neck which was battered and fried. Using pork neck for this dish was an excellent choice as it's not as dry compared to the other parts.
Next was the scary looking Australian Giant Squid Tentacles. Bearing a slight resemblance to an alien's long fingers, these large tentacles are battered and fried then coated with salted egg yolk. Crunchy with a salty but creamy sauce, this was pretty good stuff. Definitely made a change from the puny squids we get from our local shores. To make us feel less guilty, we also ordered a plain fried Yau Mak (Romaine Lettuce). Besides these items, I was also told they do a pretty good Fried Rice here so do pop in when you're around this area. Prices are also pretty reasonable if I remember correctly.
