Ting Heng Seafood

Decided to buy the family with my first pay at one of our all time favourite indulgent place

we were patrons of this place for a good .. 10 years? or maybe even longer before this hidden Jem was discovered and flooded with celebrities

Verdict: 5/5 of us will return

1. Always try to look for the lady boss to place an order! she is really friendly! and to add, after all these years of knowing her, she  has not aged at all!

2. If you enjoy Chinese style of lobsters, this is one of the better places to go to in Singapore in my humble opinion because the meat is really fresh. They do take pride in serving the freshest seafood whenever possible, but attached to it is also a premium 🙂

3. My family is not really a family that eats a lot of steamboats when we dine together, but this place, their home-made balls and fish paste is really different from the ones outside. Not too starchy and texture wise not too bouncy like a ping-pong ball.

4. The beancurd sheets gluten dish is one of my all time favourite dish to order. Can’t be found in many places and their origin is from Malaysia -> I think due to the natural water source, soya products from there, specifically Ipoh are really of a better quality and just taste really different from the ones we have here in Singapore 🙂

Damage: per pax, this meal was $80

Verdict: 6/10 of us will return.
We ordered the set and con-sensually agreed that the glutinous rice was the best dish out of all. (usually quite surprising because the carbohydrates dishes usually are just very ordinary) The moment it was served to the table, the smell of the rice permeated the table. The rice was cooked really well in terms of moisture and chewy-ness.
The rest of the other dishes were good, but all concluded were not something that they will specially go back for it. Although most of the dishes are of standard seriously, but just didn’t really impress us. The rice did, surprisingly.
Would recommend if you have business lunches or Chinese elders. Nice View 🙂

Black Ball

I have been obsessively crazy over this dessert
Black Ball

Signature : Grass Jelly, Red Bean, Sweet Potato ball, Yam Ball, Yam. Sweet Potato and Pearl

Signature : Grass Jelly, Red Bean, Sweet Potato ball, Yam Ball, Yam. Sweet Potato and Pearl

Signature with Creamer

Verdict: 1/1 of me will totally return

What is so special about this? that was the first thought that I had when my friends were raving about it.
1) I realised the grass jelly ( well chin chow) was very different from the Singapore Hawker centers/ super market kind. This grass jelly was really chewy? and not jelly like texture did not have as strong a taste as the local ones here (not also saying that the local ones here are super strongly “Chinese Medicine Centered, pretty mild actually to me)
2) maybe being a sucker for yam related desserts, at first, the yam ball/ sweet potato ball was like a.. to describe it is pearl mixed with the real yam .. same with the sweet potato ball ..  its bait weird but acquired i would say
3) I always say I want to try the other bubble tea but always end up eating the signature :p

味香园甜品 Mei Heong Yuen Dessert

In the midst of this hot weather, looking for something to cool down?

why not try some Chinese Dessert?

Mango Shaved Ice

Mango Shaved Ice

Verdict: 3/3 of us will return for this.
we shared this among 3 of us  and it was just delightful!!
1) not too icy, strong mango flavour in the ice
2) not too sweet

Note: I took away the other traditional desserts such as the peanut paste, walnut paste and  yam paste . If you personally like syrup water or starchy water, go ahead and order. I definitely would not be coming back to buy these Chinese deserts

Verdict: 2/2 of us definitely return. Totally in line with my previous visits

This place is pregnant woman friendly 🙂 and for this dear girl who was craving duck, am very glad to have her craving satisfied.

She bought me this meal as a treat to my birthday .. So, Dessert was on me!! 😀

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return! Some how now a days, troopie beat mentioned that she rarely finds the crispy eel dish in other Crystal Jade Outlets for some reason .. Thankfully the airport one had 🙂 The XLB( xiao long baos) are still good, but the vegetable was like .. ok .. loved the plain noodles 🙂 I think only crystal jade does this kind of noodles the best around Singapore 😀

20120807-215657.jpg

Pu Tien Style “Qiang Rou” Soup

Verdict: 6/6 of us will return! But do remember there are 2 branches! so go to the main branch!

My favourite dish was the Yam dish, as well as the stuffed mantous! The squid was a new dish and it was quite well done – not too overcooked and rubbery! Didn’t really like the lor mee much .. and the soup .. but also appetizers wise, I think the pork slices and the century eggs were nice .. the bitter gourd was also something different and refreshing .. 🙂
