Then came firing was the Traditional Chef’s Speciality Smoked Farm Chicken and it was so adoreable. Aromatic it was and the smokey smell was really awesome and pungent. I love it as it was well seasoned too. The chicken was cleverly done, moist and had great biting texture. Perfecto!
Last year Si Chuan Dou Hua;s fish dish was my favourite and so was this year. The Deep Fried Cod Fish with Pomelo Sauce was truly exciting as I love my fish deep fried as it incapsulated with burst aroma and crisp in texture. Having the present of sourish sweet pomelo sauce just perfect the combination of the whole dish. Yeah biting into the fresh pamelo was just lovely!
Hey look at the unshelled prawns . . . it was given a delicious deep fried and sauteed over with butter and corn flakes just amazing delicious. Crisp biting texture just creeped inside my mouth lingernig with taste . . . so yummy and a must order!
A must order dish during the Chinese New Year would be this one, Braised Sea Cucumber with Black Mushroom, Dry Oyster, Black Moses & Brocolli that was perfectly crafted. I love the texture of the braised sea cucumber and do you know sea cucumber contain loads of collagen. This is definitely the Huat huat huat!
Yes I got a slight kick from this tasty Suchuan Dan Dan Noodle and I got to say it was done to the right portion, not too overly heavy. I say my edible jewel placed right at the centre of the bowl, a huge moist tasty scallop. Beautifully elegant!
Steamed Nian Gao with Coconut Flakes
TO finish of the dinner, we got to have my favourite Nain Gao and Si Chuan Dou Hua had in down with a simple steamed and coated it over with cocnut flake. Very very adoreable delicious. Just love how the dinner ended with such a style. JUST FANTASTIC!
