Classy diner, Great food.
As a local who claimed to eat at many places, I have to admit I have not heard of this restaurant before. So when an invite came to dine there recently, I went like " Errr..I know where's Keng Lee Road...but there's a restaurant at Keng Lee Road ?".
This teochew cuisine restaurant (part of Jumbo Group, open to public) is located within the Chui Huay Lim Club, a club exclusively for invited Teochew businessman and affluent individuals. So I guess I can forgive myself not being aware of this establishment.
So, is the food any good? For general over all view, I can assure diners looking for authentic teochew cuisine will not be disappointed. I would recommend the following signature dishes like :
1) Deep fried Ngoh Hiang Rolls - excellent minced pork & prawn roll and flavoured with 5 spices powder.
2) Braised Goose meat - nicely cooked to perfection in the "lor" gravy and great companion with white rice.
3) The Steamed Pomfret - a perennial favourite dish with steamed fresh pomfret, nicely balanced sweetness from the fish and the tangy plum.
4) Braised Conpoy with Eight Vegetarian Treasures is very well braised and flavored with dried scallops. Vegetarians beware, it's looked like a vegetarian dish but is not.
There are about 150 items on the menu and you will be pleased with the extensive wine list. For private room booking, they also have Karaoke system in place should need to warm your vocal cords before or after the meal.
Drivers will be well served with ample parking lots available at the club basement.
