It has been awhile since I last blogged about Chinese food. Chinese food was rather similar to Korean and Peranakan Baba Nyonya if you ask me. It is normally few dishes to go with white rice. A friend told me that I should check out this place called the Restaurant Congee Rice and Noodle. Despite the name, I didn’t really try the noodle. I was too tempted with the dishes on the menu.
They have got my favourite Yam ring. I filled it with tangy sweet and sour pork. I love the fried vermicelli.
Next is the Fried beansprout with salted fish, and Fried spinach with garlic. Both very simple dishes from home.
The chef recommended the homemade Seafood beancurd. A big piece of smooth beancurd topped with thick seafood gravy. It looked really simple, but the gravy compliment fresh beancurd so well with shredded crab meat, and shrimps.
The ginger fried fish wasn’t that impressive, for the fish was a little dry. They shouldn’t have fried it too long. Having said that, I love the Tong Poh Yuk (braised pork slices) served with Man tau (Chinese bun). The pork slices was so nicely braised and the amount of fat from the pork slices were so chewy in texture, any pork lover would not stop at one slice.
The restaurant has a simple décor, air conditioned and tidy layout. Other than that, they are not any different from any conventional Chinese restaurants. You’ll still see familiar style of a typical Chinese Restaurant.
