LaoBeiJing@Plaza Singapura

Demona: I am a sucker for Dim Sums and chinese food. Big time sucker for Char Siew Paos. Dogma will always scout around for these food places in Singapore and bring me to try them whenever I make a trip down. We hopped on a free shuttle bus to Plaza Singapura and headed to Lao Bei Jing. (The pict showed Dogma’s enthusiasim in browsing through the menu)

Demona: I took a shot of these framed pictures hung on the wall, next to our table. The pictures had sepia coloured photographs of the olden days of Beijing.

Demona: We ordered a plate of Beijing fried noodles. The mee texture tasted a little bit like yee mee. The mee tasted pretty good, not too oily and salty. At least the mee strands did not stick to one another, like little fur balls. It was fried along with some prawns, eggs, thin meat slices and mushroom. It was quite a big portion, definitely wise if you are ordering for 2 persons.

Demona: We ordered a basket of Siew Long Paos as well. They tasted pretty good. The Paos skin was just thick enough to hold the meat juices inside and not choke us while eating them. I think we finished half the amount of ginger slices from the bottle on our table.

Verdict: The fried noodles cost 12 sgd, and the siew long paos cost 4 sgd. Pretty decent meal for such a decent price. I probably would not order the noodles in the near future soon, the siew long paos yes.

Char Siew Pau: Fluorescent Pau? Another Made in China QC issue? Fear not, the weird color is mainly due to my old Canon A70 going haywire. The colour aside, you could see chunky pieces of pork in the char siew, which demona gladly devoured it. Consistently good delivery from Kamboat.
btw Demona, we should have a CSP challenge on your next trip. Let us pit Kamboat, CJ, Imperial tresure, wah lok and lei garden CSP against each other!

Salted Fish Brinjal with minced meat: Highlight of the day. It is hard to make a dish from eggplant without making it extra oily as this buggers do soak up alot of oil. However, Kamboat did it right again with their handling of the eggplant. Crunchy fried salted fish, chili, garlic and minced meat cook in a claypot together with the eggplant resulting in a flavorsome dish.. Awesome!

The 3 Chilli Musketeers: These were wipe out by Demona the chilli Globber. I wonder how much of her taste bud left in her tongue after all these years of torment?
what is this? could remember the exact name of this. I guess it should be Fried prawn/mango wrapped in yam. It has a lite and fluffy crumbs and the prawn/mango oozes out tons of hot juices once bitten.

Verdict: The cost is about 30sgd. I had always like kamboat for its good food, great value and typical HK restaurant settings/ambience. Currently they are having a peking duck promotion at 28bucks. I hope me and demona could come and grab 1 bird and i’ll bring a solid 98 Aussie Red to go with it(free corkage if the captain recognize you)
