Note: it's moved to ION Orchard here.
I had a quick dinner with Cho here before drinks with the BF at The Wine Company. Cho had a family dinner but he was so sweet to rush down after the dinner to keep me company and watch me eat because the BF was busy at the gym. How lovely are my friends huh.
The Braised Beancurd with Assorted Mushroom & Spinach ($14) was really yummy, like the braised homemade tofu with monkey's head mushroom at Cherry Garden. But at a fraction of the price. The smooth and soft beancurd, sitting on a bed of mashed spinach was flash-fried for a crisp skin texture. Add lashings of shimeiji mushrooms, par-boiled spinach and a liberal slathering of a gooey oyster sauce gravy and you get a healthy protein-rich vegetable dish.
At the waitress' recommendation, I got the Double-Boiled Fish Maw Soup with Shark's Cartilage ($25), delicate yet rich in depth and flavour. I liked that this collagen-rich soup didn't leave that thin milky film on the tongue.
The Honey Dew Sago ($4) was a refreshingly sweet end to a simple and light meal.
