Chao Shan Cuisine

Heard about this Teochew restaurant at Beach Road and die die must go down to try. There was a right occasion and so we found ourselves there.

We had to order all the traditional Teochew dishes.

Oyster Omelette
Chestnut Duck or is it Chicken?
Fish Porridge

Pork Jelly
Not in the picture, is the cold crab. Unfortunately, that was the first dish that came and everybody snapped it up in double quick time before a photo can be taken.

So how was the food. I like most of the dishes. Most agreed the crab was the best and the oyster omelette a close second. The younger folks did not know how to eat the pork jelly which was great for us older folks. But what was missing was the special peanut sauce that I am used to at the stall in Hong Lim.

Generally, the food is good, maybe a notch below Huat Kee. Price was however much much more different. Certainly much cheaper but unfortunately even with the Orh Nee thrown in, we were still hungry and had to go to nearby Purvis Street for more food.
