First time having lunch here. Last time I came here was having breakfast and I tried the various flavours of the dumplings there. Today, I had something more filling. I ordered the char cheong noodle, which looks delicious, yet it wasn’t. The fish slice noodle was not bad though. Dumplings were nothing to shout about.

A place I’ll reserve when I ran out of stuff to eat and in desperate moment.

I met up with KKMS tonight for a dinner, as a little celebration for my birthday. At first we were to dine in Dragon-i, but the place was packed with crowds and the queue was long. She was very hungry, so I suggested Canton-i. I recalled the previous time I was at Canton-i, I saw Shanghai dumplings on their menu. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite so on my this visit.

Firstly, my mixed fruits drink was kinda nice, though the dragon fruit was dominant over the other 2 fruits in term of taste and look. It still have a slight hint of guava though, while the watermelon was totally oblivious. The tau fu fah was nice though, despite the lack of brown sugar. I was given honey as condiments, though it was good without the honey because the soya taste was quite heavy in it. I’ve never tasted such prominent soya taste ever in a tau fu fah. Rather worth the cost of it for soya lover, like DL.

My deep fried noodle looked good, but it doesn’t really tasted that nice. The middle part where it was soaked in the sauce was soggy while the crispy part was only a small portion of it. I didn’t have the prawns as I was on my strict diet, sort of. KKMS told me that the prawns were very crispy and fresh. I figured it would be. The sauce was a tad sourish and mildly sweetened yet quite salty. Though I won’t have another serving of this noodle for as long as I remembered it wasn’t that good. It looked and sounded nice though. Not sure how was KKMS’s dumpling noodle, all she ever said was, “very full, very full”.

The poached vegetable was plain vanilla. The vegetable was very crunchy though. But I had to have more vege for my balanced diet, so I had like at least 75% of it. Then the BBQ pork. It looked delicious and seducing me to eat it with its glimmering glow. The sauce was sweetened and quite nice, but the pork itself was nowhere as good as Canton Fare‘s. The meat was well marinated but it was very salty. Not what I’d expect from BBQ pork though. Then the delicious roasted pork. I’ve heard much about it on how good it was. Though, the last time I had it during lunch, it was only mediocre. This time, it was really good. The fats melt in my mouth, though the inner part was very salty.

Finally, my complains; My mixed fruits drink was served last. I ordered the dragon fruit, guava and kiwi mix at first. Then later they told me they ran out of kiwi, so I settled for watermelon. KKMS’s ordered a cup of tong sui which ended up with plain soya bean because they ran out of stock too. Then the poached vegetable. I ordered the “yau mak” at first. Then we were told they ran out of “yau mak”, hence I asked for “choi dum”. And again, they ran out of “choi dum”. It was then I had to settle for less than desirable “choi sum”. How could a premium restaurant such as this keep running out of food which shown on the menu?
