Really nice Sichuan food
I had the chance to visit the outlets was at UOB Building.
When I went to the one at UOB Building, I was first awed by the magnificent view that the restaurant provided. Imagine being able to see the whole of Singapore River and the riverside as you were having lunch in a leisurely manner while the rest of the world seems like busy ants and matchboxes running around below. The service was excellent and the staff constantly had a smile on their face as they ushered us to our seats. One of the interesting things about this place was their tea master, who would serve us their "eight treasure tea" using a teapot with a really long sprout. And not only that, there would also be some form of kungfu performance with the tea pot as he served.
I remembered we ordered a spicy diced chicken as we thought that we should try Sichuan food since we were in a Sichuan restaurant after all. The staff then asked us how spicy we wanted it. Phew.. were we glad that we simply went for mild spicy. When the dish arrived, besides the chicken pieces, there were also many dried chilli in it. The spiciness was acceptable, but it was the numbness that came with it that almost killed us but at the same time, I just could not get enough of it. Haha.. I must be crazy.
Nonetheless, this location is a good place to try real Sichuan food but do mind the chilli level and tell the staff if you really cannot take spicy stuff.
Chinese ala carte buffet
I had been a fan to this restaurant since my NS days. During that time, when my platoon mates and I went for dinner there, we would be able to order five or six rounds and able to finish at least four fishes.
The restaurant was also smart, they would serve us slower and slower after our initial few rounds. But that was okay for us because when we went there, we would always be the first to be there and last to leave, making sure we get the maximum value out of our hard earned allowance from MINDEF.
Recently, I was back to the restaurant and found that the choice of food items were lesser than during my Army days and the price had also gone up quite a bit. Anyway, now, I don't have stomachs like those days and it was harder to get the same money worth from buffets.
