Like a cliffhanger that leaves you panting for more, House Of Gourmet (someone might have forgotten to mention to them that their name isn't exactly grammatically complete...) made us vow to come back to try their other cheap and tasty dishes.
- Shrimp Dumplings in soup: I had them withhold the noodles; just wanted a big bowl of shrimp dumplings which were Amazing! Perfectly done...dumplings were not soggy or too soft or mushy. Huge chunks of shrimps. Soup was tasty. @$3.99, this dish is unbeatable
- Singapore-style Pan Fried Turnip Cake: I grew up eating this dish, so i have high expectations. They did it pretty well here...but not 100% authentic. The pieces of turnip cake were a lot bigger than what the dish normally would be (honestly, about 4-5x bigger than what it should be).
Most importantly, it's missing the crunch that usually gives this dish texture: Preserved radish (chai poh). Without the chai poh, the texture of this dish is pretty one-dimensional
It also doesn't have the slightly crispy glaze on the turnip cake...they should have left it a little longer in the wok
But don't get me wrong...everything else about the dish was pretty good taste-wise.
@ $5.50, the dish is pretty good. I'm not sure i'll order it again though, unless i'm really craving S'porean food
- HK Milk Tea. Wow. They really need to add condensed milk to this drink. It was too bitter and tasted a little medicinal?
Overall, a great and affordable meal... will be back to try other dishes; the menu is extensive!
