49 Seats @ Kreta Ayer Road

49seats2A monthly eating affair with my group of friends from office. It’s my birthday month & my turn to get a treat from them 🙂

drinksIce Lemon Tea & Ginger Ale ($3 each)

mushroom soupCream of Mushroom ($5.90) – It’s good but not to the extend of licking the bowl as what my friend read from somewhere.

fish bites
Fish Bites 10 Pcs ($9.90) – I like this. Tasted like fish & chips in bite size.

chicken wingsFried Wings & Drumlets ($9.90) – Mediocre

fried fish
Pan Fried Fish with Alskempi Sauce ($16.90) – This is my main. Though the fish looks thin & plain, it’s very nicely done. The sauce in the side bowl is savory, creamy with seafood inside. A very appetizing dip.

tom yam pastaTom Yam Seafood Pasta ($14.90) – Actually I’m very keen in this dish as I like the sour & spicy combination of tom yam. However, my tolerance for spiciness is quite low so I dare not risk this as my main. Stole a few mouths & I really like it but can’t take anything more than that.

steakSirloin Alskempi ($24.90) – The sauce is the same as the fish but not in a separate bowl. Can’t really comment on the steak as I didn’t really try it.

chickenCheesy Chicken Chop ($16.90) – Tried some, the meat is tender & the sauce is nice.

We only made reservation the day before. The indoor seats were all reserved. There isn’t any ambiance outdoors along the road. So if you want indoor seats, it’s better to make reservation in advance. Overall we enjoyed the food & the price is net with no service charge & GST.

Chui Xiang Kitchen 醉香小厨 @ Teck Chye Terrace

Along Upper Serangoon Road, near Lim Tua Tow Rd is a stretch of eateries. This is more like a zi char place & their tables are stretched all the way to the outside, full house. We were there to celebrate my mum’s birthday on  Sat night.

*Update on 27-12-11 > They have shifted to Changi Village. Address is updated below.

Cabbage Chicken ($16) – This is their signature dish. The chicken is wrapped with cabbage & simmered in savory gravy till meat is tender soft. The cabbage totally absorbed the taste of the gravy. This dish is a must try.

Beancurd with Golden Mushrooms ($8)
– A good combination of fried beancurd, golden mushrooms & spinach with gravy. Very tasty.

Salted Egg Yolk Prawns ($18) – It’s a little oily & not much taste of the salted egg yolk. Can find bits & pieces of the salted egg yolk on the plate though. Still nice but not fantastic.

Broccoli with Abalone Mushroom ($10)

Soup ($8)
– The pot of soup is enough for 7-8 bowls of serving. I can’t remember what soup we ordered. If I’m not wrong it should be seafood soup. Since it’s not double boiled soup, can’t comment much on it but definitely not my kind of soup.

Almond Jelly with Longan ($2)
– We wanted to order yam paste but it will take about 20mins to prepare. It’s bed time for my nephew so we decided to order something else that can serve faster. A simple dessert but not a bad alternative too.

Overall we enjoyed the food. The price is reasonable & we will definitely be back for their cabbage chicken.
