Dian Xiao Er (Tampines 1)

The winds of Spring arrives in 2 days..
Everybody say "DONG DONG QIANG!"
6 times, now! now!

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone in advance.
Gongxi Gongxi~~

All the new year cookies, chocolates, candies are up for sale
I've got quite a weird collection at home
Will post real soon..

Lunch today is at
Dian Xiao Er 店小二

The tables and cutleries are clean
Chinese-styled decorations and ambience
It looks very contemporary old school

Anyways this is my last meal with Edwin
before he returns to Ipoh
Means our next meal will at least be in a year's time

We came in really late at 3pm
and were one of last 2 tables eating in
The host informed us that
last order is at 3pm and they close at 3.30pm
But they did not rush us throughout our meal

Anyways I find it a really cool place to dine in
Their Chinese New Year (Reunion Dinner) menu is out too
and opened for reservations

At the back of the restaurant offers a scenic view
of hmmm.. HDBs and the MRT station

As we can see, they are famous for their ducks
We're here today to eat em Donald Ducks

The menu looks pretty cool
For non-Chinese readers, it reads
"Dian Xiao Er Secret Manuscript"
Its like a Kungfu Manuscript
that teaches you "duck punch attack"
or "ducky tornado kick"

Lets put our hands together to
welcome our diners today...




Lettuce Oyster (蚝油西生菜)
Wow.. Its delicious!
The oyster sauce is just right
and the lettuce is juicy and crunchy =)

The dishes arrived promptly
and the staff were robotically polite
As in everything they say were like scripted
and they speak real fast
Its like playing 02JAM in speed 5.0
I think they are bots

Angelica Herbal Duck (当归烤鸭)
This is great too!
The gravy has a herbal and sour plum flavor
with hints of fragrant good quality soy sauce
The meat is tender and the skin crispy

Sidenote: Do you know that "Roasted Poultry"
are actually Deep-fried and not Roasted?

Soup of the Day (每日老火例汤)
Not very impressed with the lotus soup
Its hawker standard
The soup is not simmered long enough
As much as the lotus and ribs are already tender
and to the teeth

Total Damage: $57.65 for 3 pax
