Wan Chai Hongkong Tea Room has 5 outlets in Singapore. As the name suggests, it has the concept of HongKong eatery, be it food, beverage, layout or atmosphere. Went to Wan Chai Hongkong Tea Room in Lot 1 Shopping Centre at Choa Chu Kang for dinner. The place was packed. Had to queue up and wait for seats.
We sat at table number 1! It was just at the entrance of the outlet. Wish that there were seats inside.
Ordered the HK ‘Yuan-Yang’. Asked for less sugar in an attempt to be healthy… and it was a disaster. Tasted so bitter! Me and my bright idea! =).
The Crispy Silk Beancurd ‘w’ Pork Floss was delicious. It is amazing that such a simple dish that can be easily replicated at home can taste so Shioklicious! Moreover, just 2 ingredients is required. I guess the technique is also to control the heat when frying the beancurd so that the beancurd does not absorb the oil. This eatery managed to make sure that the dish was not oily!
My favourite, the HK Cheese Baked Chicken ‘w’ Mushroom Rice, an item which I have been ordering every time I visit the eatery. Depending on which part of the chicken you receive, it can be very tender and juicy or dry and hard to chew. The melted cheese certainty enhanced the taste of this entire dish. And I love the mushrooms. I should try some other items next time.
I always feel that they may as well do not give customers their complimentary soup. The reason is because, every time the soup taste weird (smelly) and has dirty particles in it. I do highly suspect that the pork/chicken which they add into the soup was not blanched. Hence, the taste and also the particles in the soup. If this is true then hmmm….
Over the food (which I mentioned) is not too bad. But do take note of what you order as the reviews online for the eatery has not been exactly positive.
