My friends hadn't arrived yet as I was five minutes early - hooray for me! =D So I went inside to grab a nice table in the middle of the restaurant without needing our booking on the Monday night, we weren't in the seats staring off the chefs but we still had a nice view to watch them making noodles. We sat down to order from the picturesque menu (I loved the cover!) and my friends informed me that it has changed quite a lot from the one-pager of the past.
|Handmade spinach noodles|
|Fluffy Chinese roti with pork floss|
|Wok fried medium grain rice with three kinds of eggs (chicken egg, salted duck egg and century egg)|
|Prawn and pork wontons with handmade egg noodles in a Shanghainese style spicy sauce|
|Eggplant topped with Chinese olive vegetables [12.90]|
(you can also get the dish topped with spicy pork mince [15.90])
|Lightly pan-fried pork and cabbage dumplings|
Dessert time - oink!
|aww, they're kissing...|
|Steamed sesame 'piggy face' bun|
芝麻豬仔飽 (managed to get that out XD)
[7.90 - you can order an extra one for approx. half the price]
|Green tea ice cream in red bean paste with steamed pearl dumplings & almond flakes|
I also found the dishes came out quite quickly and the staff waiting around our table were very attentive. I'd hope it would be the same on the weekend too :)
We also made a quick sojourn to pick up something extra from the Taiwanese Dessert Bar - Meet Fresh. Still popular on weeknights, we waited in line for about ten minutes, constantly changing our minds until we finally saw what was in their No.1 dish, Taro Mania as it was on a sign next to the counter and not the board menu. With the general pearls and things, red bean, taro, it was the additional of the herbal jelly which helped us to all decide on the same dish because it would be a refreshing addition. The quirky girl at the register suggested that eating it cold tasted better so that's what we got.
It was actually my first time eating Meet Fresh and I really enjoyed it - by the time I got home. This one was not too sweet as the milk helped to it down. I would consider getting this particular dessert again, as long as the line's not too long. ;)

The girls: We need another rice dish.
Me: Don't we have rice in the rotti?
Huge thanks to Lyss and Kim for the night ^^
