Just up ahead of 沈家闽南肠粉 in my previous post, you’ll find this shop with long tradition for their fish and prawn balls. No much of a queue so I placed my order for the 丸子开会 for RMB20, which basically has 5pcs of the 黄金鱼丸 and 6pcs of the 秘制虾丸. My reviews as follows:
Taste: Taste is not bad. Balls are soft and not too salty. Soup has some dried shrimps and seaweed to enhance the taste but still bland. So maybe the soup is not meant for drinking? But I’ve tasted better. Hate to say this, the frozen ones from my supermarket taste just as good if not better. 🙂
Service: Pretty good.
Ambience: N.A. Takeaway and eat nearby standing.
Portion: Slightly below average. Balls are a little small… especially the prawn ones… Ok, I sounded a little corny over there… ;P
RTE: Maybe not
Location: They have 2 locations but all on the same road. One of which has tables and seats. 鼓浪屿龙头路234 or 416号. Tel: 0592-2096361
I reckon I should write about this awesome place I’ve been to during my last trip to Bangkok. Reason is, this place serves very authentic Thai food dated back to the days where they are being served to the Thai royalties and these dishes are believe to have medicinal effects on our bodies. No wonder most of the Thai girls we see are so slim! Well the attraction of this place is not just the food but also the whole structure. The place is made from traditional Thai teak wood and service staff are all dressed in traditional Thai costumes. So are the utensils and serving plates and bowls. My buddy in Bangkok brought me there for dinner much to my surprise as this place is tucked in some back alleys in Sukhumvit Soi 20 and it’s a really nice little paradise to have authentic Thai food, chat up with your mates, or even a date with that special someone. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Awesome. Must check it out at least once.
Price: Buddy paid but I should think it’s quite reasonable for the quality of the food and ambience.
Was here for a quick dinner one night and found a little gem over here. This Tse Char stall of an old coffee shop apparently was featured in the newspapers before. Since I was the only person eating, I ordered only 2 dishes.
Taste: Very nice and very good wok fire which adds to the taste. Will be back to try their specialty tofu and assam fish head.
Chanced upon this old couple selling Fried Kway Teow & Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee while I was at Sim Place Market the other day. This place is at Blk 49 Sims Place, unit #01-26 and it’s my regular haunt. Loads of good food here and I will feature them one by one whenever I can.
The stall is very clean although it’s only Grade B… but I prefer Grade B stalls cos usually taste better than Grade A ones.. haha… So I ordered a plate of Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee for $3 a plate.
Taste:Sambal is very nicely fried. They use the thinner version of the Chor Bee Hoon which I like cos it absorbs the prawn broth nicely. Not very salty but just nice. You can tell they have been putting a lot of work in the broth for frying. If only it is fried a little longer with a little more broth, I believe the taste will be a lot better.
Portion:For $3, the portion is good. Ingredients are substantial and most importantly, there were 3 medium sized prawns and they are whole prawns unlike some other stalls they halved their prawns and prolly give you only 3 halves.
RTE:Definitely. Must support the old couple lah. They are like 60+ already still doing hawker. Will try the Char Kway Teow soon and put here. 🙂
