My Burmese ex-colleague Tun decided to do a few days stopover at Singapore for some good old catching up.
I took the opportunity to enroll Ben Ben & Jaclyn for a quick get together lunch at Paradise Inn @ Thomson Plaza – the midpoint between our workplaces.
We order the small portions versions of 4 dishes & drinks soon followed. According to
Jaclyn (who has an amazing reputation of upholding quality in everything she does), the waiter who served us wasn’t really well trained. She insisted that we were served chilled water cos there isn’t a single piece of ice in it. 🙂
I must say the dishes came relatively fast. The first to arrive was Crisp-fried crystal prawns in wasabi mayo sauce. The prawns were fresh and crunchy. Wasabi mayo offers just the right amount of ‘kick’, not too much to make you reel. Great dish, only complain was the quantity of prawns… cost around $14 bucks and just a few prawns 🙁
Next came our Sauteed baby kailan with oyster sauce. Not much of the sauce but it’s presence can be felt while chomping down on the kailan. Loved the crisp sound the fresh veg produce with every bite.
Chicken with honey & young ginger came in small bite size drumlets for easy sharing. Sweet, savory coating on the fried surface with tender meat underneath make this a really suitable finger food.
Pan fried egg omelette with preserved turnip. The dish is rather ordinary, can give it a miss.
I ended my meal with Red Bean Soup with Glutinous Rice Ball (Peanut filling). The rice ball looks as though it has been cooked or soaked for a long time. Bloated & slimy, should not have ordered this.
Overall the main courses are ok, rather pricey for the portions that’s served. My friends liked their desserts, guessed its just bad rice ball day for them. Total cost for 4 pax: $75.
