Clear Noodles in Chili Sauce

  • I normally love noodles, but I hated this dish.
  • The noodles had no flavour on their own and a gross hard plastic texture to them.

Free Range Chicken with Chili

  • I didn’t care for this dish because I don’t generally like the texture of cold chicken.
  • The chicken was not very meaty and was not worth the effort of eating around the bone

Sautéed Pork with Chili Pepper

  • The pork slices were tender and plentiful.
  • This dish had a moderate amount of spice from the chilis, but it wasn’t too overwhelming.

Grilled Lamb with Cumin

  • Cumin is one of my favourite spices and I loved the strong flavour in this dish.
  • The lamb meat was very tender and it reminded me of the skewers you get at the night market.

Seaweed Spare Rib Soup

  • This soup was fine, however, it wasn’t flavourful or exciting enough for me to want to order it on my own as it was mostly just broth.

Kung Pao Chicken

  • I love that the kung pao chicken here was kicked up a notch and had a good amount of spice to it because it made it so much more flavourful and fun to eat compared to the more standard version.

Braised Fish with Hot Sauce

  • This was the spiciest dish of the night and not for the faint of heart.
  • The fish was good with a buttery texture, but I found it hard to eat because I kept getting bones.

Final Thoughts?

I love spicy food and appreciated that everything here is super flavourful. As a whole there were a few misses, but most of the food was good.
