Ok I know you must be thinking why should I review such a popular dessert chain of stores right? Reason is, what they have in HK is different from the ones in China. In fact they have some other interesting items which distinguish them from their HK parent chain of stores. I was putting up at Lido Hotel on Beijing Lu in Guangzhou last month and this dessert store is just downstairs! Apart from other many great food places lah…
Rating: 4.5/5. Prices a tad too high.
Taste: Was really nice and addictive especially the durian thing… I had 2 servings!
Price: A bit on the high side but still affordable to us.
Portion: Below average for the price paid.
RTE: If I see them in Shenzhen, I might just pop by.
Location: This one is below Lido Hotel, Beijing Lu, Guangzhou. They have many branches in HK, SZ and GZ.
Was in KL for a night and was recommended this place by a friend in KL. Heard this is a regular joint for supper for most party goers in KL… well at least for the locals.
So my friend drove us to the back part of Jalan Alor, which is the famous street for good street food. The little stall is located along the small road just behind Hotel Nova vicinity. Problem is trying to find a parking but we were lucky.
Taste: Acquired. Some people may not like the cowdung-looking lump on top of the noodles and some may not like the herbal taste of that lump of thing. But it was alright for me and this is totally not found in Singapore.
Portion: Above average.
Price: Relatively cheap. Good supper item. Next time I might choose to stay near Jalan Alor to feature all the food there!
RTE: Yes but there are lots to try there still…
Location: Beginning of Tingkat Tong Shin, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Just behind Corona Inn Hotel)
This is a restaurant which is run by my friend’s brother but I doubt he knows me. So I was there with another friend, and after we sat down, my friend’s dad appeared from the kitchen. I doubt he recognised me as well because he only met me once when I was much slimmer… haha… The whole restaurant is set in a very garage retro setting which is great for bringing your parents and kids as they are both nostalgic and educational. Check out the ambience.
So I asked uncle what he recommends for 2 people… So these are what we ordered.
Taste: All the dishes we ordered are damn good… the secret is, uncle know how to control the wok fire (火候) very well… that’s why it adds to the taste. If there are more people, a must try is the cold dish platter. Try the crab meat omelette inside… and tell me what you think of it… the last time I tried it with my family, I tell you, we wallop everything in seconds. If you’re alone, try the hor fun… any form. The normal Tse Char type, beef hor fun or even the dried ones… you’ll love it!
Portion: Adequately good!
Price: $40+ (Think uncle gave us discount cos we were the last customers… )
Location: At the turning of Sirat Road along Yio Chu Kang Road. Just beside SPC petrol station (Opp Serangoon stadium’s carpark)
