Sometimes being picky can bite you in the arse.
HAINANESE CHICKEN RICE + SOUP, LARGE ($11.95).
A delightful marriage of Chinese tradition and Malyasian complexity. Hainanese Chicken encompasses the art of boneless-chicken cooking with a traditional method involving quality meat selection, a delicate boiling process and complex-sauce making. It is especially enjoyable in the form of Hainanese Chicken Rice."
Starting with the soup, the broth is from the original chicken stock and does not taste heavy on the salt. Moving to the highlight, the hainan chicken.
SEAFOOD LAKSA NODLE SOUP ($9.50).Cafe D'Lite Express in Aberdeen Centre tastes more rich than Mamalee's! The laksa tastes watered down, too light, and lacks a curry as well as coconut flavour. As for the ingredients, there are a couple of shrimp, imitation crab meat, tofu puff, bean sprout and thick as well as thin vermicelli.
ROTI CANAI ($5.95).
Overall we tipped what we did because there was no service and the food tastes below average. In my opinion, the name of the restaurant is deceiving because rather than an authentic home cooked meal, the restaurant is serving a food court style cuisine that is catered to young students.
- Soup is served from the original chicken stock
- Food court style cuisine
- Below average eats
- Banana Leaf is across the street and serves better Malaysian cuisine with similar prices
- This is when being picky bites me in the arse, because any restaurant in the area would have been better than here
- I am trying the whole "order less and the usual amount for two", and am glad to have ordered less than usual
