Gastroliterary 17: Asian ii

Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee
General Information:
21/08/2005
Location: Amoy Street
The restaurant was packed despite of its location. The place around the restaurant are relatively deserted because it was a weekend night in the business district.

Food: 7
The 'ngo hiong', crispy 5 spices roll is recommended. The dessert, ór ni', yam paste is also a famous, delectable treat not to be missed by Teochew food fans. Other dishes tasted include cold crabs, steam fish, stew vegetables in fragrant sesame sauce and sea cucumber with minced meat were of considerably average in standard. Overall, it has to be noted that most of the dishes were considered oily, although not salty. Even the recommended dishes prove a little unhealthy to the modern Singaporean; it leaves a sickly after-feeling.

Service: 7.5
No service charge is imposed here. However, the service was still quite acceptable given that the restaurant was full and dishes was served with promptness.

Ambience: 7.5
A renovated shophouse that still tries to retain the flavours of the olden days, not forgetting the nostalgic long stairway. The atmosphere and settings, the cutlery and the decor were quite well-done. However, improvements should be made on the aspect on temperature for there was an operating fan that caused much discomfort despite the place was already air-conditioned.

Overall:7
An above average place for Teochew cuisine. Prices were quite reasonable, amounting to around $30 per person. Ordering luxurious dishes like shark fins or abalone can easily cost one $60 though.
