We went to Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 to get an early dinner before we proceed to Night Safari. This complex is not big, I doubt that we can find good food in this place. Bearing in mind that my mom and gu cheh (dad's sister) always prefer Chinese cuisine. We managed to find 2 chinese cuisine located side by side and we decided to try Dian Xiao Er. I am glad that we made the correct decision for trying this shop as the food was fairly good!
|Old era settings|
We were escorted inside by the waiter and we were impressed with the decorations and ambiance of the restaurant. It looks like we are back to the 1900s (or whatever era where the Wu Xia people exist). Wooden stools, brick wall, bamboo stand.
|Dong Po Pork - Medium (SGD18.80)|
The dong po pork is served with a layer of fats and a layer of lean meat. Both fats and meat are balanced equally. The sauce was sweet and just nicely done.
Fried Kailan - M (SGD14.80)
When this 2-styles kailan was served, I doubted the taste by looking at it, because it looks totally different from what we have here in Malaysia. The dish is served with chicken floss and sauce. In fact, I was wrong. The whole combination was very good indeed. The kailan was crunchy and the sauce mixed well with the chicken floss and fried kailan.
|Mushroom & Vege - M (SGD18)|
Normal mushroom and vege dish.
|Ten WonderDuck - M (SGD23.80)|
My dad couldn't resist not having duck since he saw the roast ducks hanging in front of the restaurant. The roast duck is very fragrant, it has strong herbs taste and I wish that the skin could be more crunchier though.
Overall, dad, mom and gu cheh was happy with the food.
