The first thing that came was prawn wanton. The soup was really great.
The wanton was alright. Prawn meat isn't very chunky or crunchy, but at least they are quite fresh.
The next to arrive was the beansprout chicken hor fun. Again the soup was really good, but the hor fun was not hot enough. The beansprout was normal (maybe slightly fatter than the usual lot, but Ipoh's beansprout are fatter). The chicken was smooth and soft, but we found the skin not properly cleaned.
Finally is the braised beef brisket noodle. Soup was again superb, but we found the meat too big a piece and no evidence of sufficiently braised, as the meat is quite hard to chew.I believe they cut the meat at the wrong direction. This resulted in big chunk of meat and tendon, when it should be inter-layered thinly.
I feel bad that I gave such verdict when many people applauded the place, but I was really disappointed too. Food industry isn't easy. To focus at 1 specific area is good, but other aspects shouldn't be neglected. Sigh... I do not mean to be philosophical, but when comes to quality I wouldn't have it otherwise. Or else, no point blogging.
