It was Davina’s suggestion to go to Chef’s Gallery. I didn’t do my research so I was surprised to find that it served Chinese cuisine! They do not take reservations from 6 – 8.30pm so I arrived early to get a table. As I entered, everyone yelled a welcome.
Perhaps this is why it is called Chef’s Gallery. I watched the chefs pull noodles and immediately decided that we were going to have NOODLES! Well, I was. Service was really prompt and helpful. Its a really nice place for a quick after work dinner.
Osmanthus and mint tea ($6.90). Osmanthus is a light fragrant flower not too dissimilar to the flavour of Chrysanthemum….its sweetness and the minty freshness made for a good after dinner drink.
Southeast Asian Chicken Curry with Chinese Roti ($12.90) makes me wonder about the origins of Roti Canai (Malaysian) or Roti Prata (as they call it in Singapore). I tried some and it tasted exactly like roti canai. It had soft and fluffy layers and crispy on the outside.
Phoenix dumplings. Spicy King prawns and chilli sauce rolled in a skin steamed to translucence. ($12.90) Slightly spicy, soft to bite and jam packed with prawns. mmm
Mixed Vegetable dumplings $12.90 – for my daily vegetable intake! The mix of vegetables include carrots, shitake mushrooms and do I sense chestnut in there? Crunchy and savoury, Vegetarians will love this flavourful dumpling.
We decided on the snowflake chicken with noodles in pumpkin soup ($15.90). The snowflake chicken was unbelievably crunchy and light! The noodles were great from being so fresh and the pumpkin soup was just beautiful. The broth just had so much flavour in it.
