Melodrama aside, there was plenty to celebrate as kw's brother, whom you might recall currently lives in California, came back for their mum's 60th birthday and brought along his girlfriend, Sandy, who was visiting Singapore for the first time.
On top of hawker food, my FIL suggested Beng Hiang Restaurant 茗香菜馆 (www.benghiang.com/) for a slice of old school Hokkien grub. As soon as all the party had arrived (a couple of us had a manicure/ pedicure session before lunch, heh), he proceeded to ordered a bunch of stuff like a seasoned pro.
Fish Maw Thick Soup with Crabmeat
Gooey, gunky. Nothing too repulsive despite how it looks. Downed the entire bowl as I was hungry and complimentary roasted peanuts can only do so much.
I think taking into consideration my love for fried food, this was probably my favourite dish of the meal.
Comfort fats sandwiched between soft-as-baby's-bottom carbs. Tasty but expectedly so in a non-relevationary way.
My heart doesn't stop beating for KL noodles to begin with and these KL noodles weren't particularly exciting as the noodles were too soft.
Funny enough, I really enjoyed the complimentary red bean soup. The red beans were still al dente and the soup was pleasantly sweet.
I thought it was quite funny to read other blogs complain about the roguish service. What were they expecting? Someone to ask them if they need a shoulder massage? Doesn't rough brusque service complete the entire experience?
