This joint is a local food critic favorite but I was unfortunate to be sick on that day so I really couldn’t taste much of anything that day with my nose clogged. However, the texture and temperature of all but one dish were excellent. On the occasions that I could regained my taste buds briefly, the flavors were wonderful.

Wild Clams Stir Fried with Chilli Jam and Basil
Smoked Baby Pigeon with Longjing Tea & Chrysanthemum
Deep Fried Crab Meat and Mushrooms Dumplings
Deep Fried Crispy Taro Cake with Smoked Duck
Steamed Fresh Flowery Crab with Aged ShaoXing Wine & Fragrant Chicken Oil & Flat Rice Noodles
Szechuan Spicy New Zealand Crispy Lamb Belly
The only dish that’s off tonight. The crispy lamb belly is a touch dry.
Fried Rice with Prawns Trio: Fresh Prawns, Sun-dried Prawns & Shrimp Paste
Gai lan with Preserved Mustard Greens
Gojiberry Ice Cream & Sweetened Almond Cream
Verdict? I can only attest to the restaurant’s excellence in texture and temperature of each dish but my dad says it’s much better than the Tasting Court that we visited 3 nights ago.
