This was one of the eateries in the midst of many others opposite Sembawang Shopping Centre. I had wanted to try the very popular white bee hoon but the queue was…
So Hubby spotted this small unassuming place on the left of the bustling white bee hoon place. Their logo was very very Hong Kong – a big live duck (in Hong Kong it will be a big live goose, not that I could tell the difference la.. u just assume lol). He was game for some Hong Kong fare so in we went.
We managed to get that last small table on the air con area phew.
Simple condiments tray.
Simple cutlery too.
Hubby was hungry.
Cao beng face. Hahaha.
Still handsome la still handsome la.
We placed our order with the boss of the restaurant who spoke to us in Cantonese. He simply assumed that we could speak in Cantonese. And hubby the Cao beng ordered in Cantonese lor.
I took a peek inside the metal container and was surprised to see this actually.. but I love such stuff so I served myself a huge chunk of it plus some chilli to try.
The chilli was ahem, spicy and pungent.. can cough kind. I love these spring onions though.
Hubby’s spoon has got a rooster on it! That rooster. Long time no see.
Of course we ordered the very stuff that was shown on their logo.
Hubby is one picky eater but he gave high ratings for this dish. I was also surprised when I sank my teeth into it. It was so tender, juicy and hubby said 入味. How to explain that in English ah…
Ok it means that the fantastic taste of the dish totally got sucked into the duck meat.
The service was typically quite what you will expect at a roadside Hong Kong roast goose place – swift, brisk, no fuss. Well, when food is good, that’s already good service.
Our sambal kangkong. Another surprise. Not the standard singapore style kangkong. The spices they used were just different! I thought I tasted some salted fish in it. It was another fantastic dish!
This was steamed minced pork with salted fish.
Spot the salted fish 🙂 somehow I will prefer the salted fish to be mixed into the minced pork but this is how it goes!
This steamed minced pork was very nicely cooked. Not like the usual steamed minced pork where the pork gets so overcooked that it tastes rough and dry. This one was very juicy and smooth 😀 aiya u gotta try to understand la..
We were thoroughly stuffed with these 3 dishes. I had half a bowl of rice to go with these dishes too. Oh ya talking about the rice. I was telling hubby that the rice in Hong Kong just tasted nicer. It was as though the rice in Hong Kong was cooked with a goose in it! Or they dripped some of the goose fats in it?
Total bill. It was okay for a Friday night dinner! 🙂 we totally didn’t regret checking out Sum’s Kitchen.
