Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee (1998) - Revisited

2 Jan 2011

We had a very good meal the last time especially the oyster porridge and yam paste were so good that we always wanted to come back again though the price was rather steep. Finally revisited this Teochew restaurant located at Amoy Street on the 2nd day of New Year 2011 for dinner. However the food was rather disappointing though the yam paste still maintain it's standard. Though we didn't order much but we still spend about S$30 plus per person. I don't think is worth.

Oyster & Minced Pork Porridge

We came for this but was quite disappointed. The stock tasted like chicken cube stock instead of superior stock. It was executed so well the last time. We were pestering aunt to replicate this porridge at home, I'm sure she will do it very well.

Prawns with Yellow Chives

Prawns were very fresh but tasted a bit bland. Just a little more salt to this dish would be perfect.

Asparagus with XO Sauce

Another disappointing dish as the XO sauce tasted weird and not fresh.

Huat Kee Signature Fried Kuay Teow

We find it a bit bland with not much wok hei and quite oily though I like the chewy texture of the noodle.

Yam Paste w/Ginko Nuts & Pumpkin

Still rank as the best yam paste in my food diary. A must try!

Gongfu Tea (complimentary)

A bitter and strong tasting tea to clear the palate, a tradition in Teochew cuisine to serve this tea after meal.
