It was our brother’s birthday about a week ago, and we asked him what he would like to have. He said ‘gangster’. Huh? What gangster?
He said he saw a restaurant called “Hei Se Hui” (Underworld triad). Aha the restaurant’s actually called “Bosses”.
So, Momo and I invited our bro out for his gangster dinner. Sis could not make it as she had something on.
It’s actually a pretty nice restaurant with black all around.
Instead of the usual peanuts, they have this spring roll thingy with carrots and cucumber sticks. Pretty huh.
We started with a soup that was recommended to us. It was pork rib soup I think carrots and papaya? But the soup was good, we really liked it. It’s not that salty too, light and yet rich in flavour.
The next dish that came out was nai bai with salted fish. Yes, with salted fish, of course the dish is salty.
We also had Crispy Aromatic Duck and a steamed spicy garoupa (which is on special, so every single table ordered one!)
I got this urge about Crispy Aromatic Duck after having it in London. So when I saw it on the menu, we ordered it. Crispy aromatic duck’s a duck that is deep fried and then shredded after being served to the table for you to view it. Bro’s been back from London for almost a year after spending so many years there, so he would taste it and let us know if it’s good too.
When we said could we take a photo of it before being they shred it, we were told, no photography please. (ya right, you can see so many photos of food from this place on the web) We asked why, he said people would steal their ideas. We were thinking, hmm they better come out with a better excuse, anyway, we decided not to take any photos and enjoy our food 😉 Hey, remember the place’s called Hei Se Hui, you better comply. LOL….
The duck’s nice but it does not come with lettuce or pancake skin that you can wrap that you find in London. It was crispy and not too dry and we called sis who can’t make it to come join us. haha… We told her, duck not bad, come come. She came!
So ordered their desserts which was quite nice too. The durian puffs, mango puree with sago, and tang yuan. (We are so traditional ya, ordering tang yuan because it was a birthday celebration. LOL)
