Wow! Did not realise that it has been a month since I did my last post! It is really time consuming maintaining a food blog and I do salute those peeps who update their blog/posts all on their own (like me!) There are plenty of food pictures sitting in my phone as I have not stop taking pictures of all the lovely food that swished by me!
To start this Lunar New Year of the Goat, let’s start off with a sumptuous dinner we had during this festive season and it was at no other than Long Ji 龍記 who have shifted back to the Tiong Bahru Area from Bukit Merah View Hawker Center.
We had the menu customised for $490 as below:
1. Lou-hei. No CNY celebration in Singapore is complete without a Lou-hei .
Our Lou-hei piled high with radish,carrots, cucumbers, salmon, golden crackers, peanuts, etc drizzled with oil and sweet plum sauce for a smooth sailing, bountiful, prosperous and sweet year ahead! This was taken before the massive tossing begins!
Next up was a Cold Dish Platter made up of jellyfish in the center and going clockwise from the top right, we have salad prawn, prawn roll aka hei-zou, fermented beancurd pork and salted egg pumpkin. Everything tasted great and I especially like the salted egg pumpkin as the softness and sweetness of the pumpkin contrasted nicely with coating of salted egg. Yumz! Eat slowly as it is served piping HOT!
Next up was the Fish Maw Soup. Very generous portion and the soup tasted even better with a drizzle of vinegar and a dash of pepper. I had 2 portions and it really filled me up.
Next came the Steamed Pomfret in Teochew Style. A fish is a must during CNY as it signifies abundance.
Then came our favourite dish – Crab Bee Hoon (2 Crabs)!
Close up of the Crab Bee Hoon. Very generous portion and they even gave us extra soup by the side.
I was too busy eating to dig out the roe but there you see it! Chunks at the bottom! There were lots on the shell but I did not manage to get a pic of it.
Next up was Deep-fried Baby Squid on request of my sister’s friend. The squid was very crispy and the flavouring so well done that if we were not that full after the bee hoon, it would have been polished off with ice cold beer!
Another dish in our set – Cereal Prawn. The significant of eating prawns is from the name of the prawn in Cantonese – Har, which implies that you will have a happy year ahead as you hahaha in the new year. ;P
And finally, our Abalone with Broccoli which signifies “sure-win”
A very satisfying and very filling dinner dining alfresco style. Haha.. Long Ji is located in the coffeeshop beside Tiong Bahru Bakery in case you are wondering where Eng Hoon Street is. Parallel parking outside the coffeeshop is limited but there is a big carpark at the nearby Tiong Bahru Market. Do note that payment is by CASH only so do bring along enough money with you! 🙂
