This was dinner with a group of Year 12 / Pre-U friends just the other week. We used to meet every month, but everyone got busy with so many things, we did not have time to meet up. So we decided to meet up again.
While thinking of where to go, there was this repeated food programme on TV that help me decide. It was one where Fiona Xie and Gurmit Singh was on. Gurmit was introducing his favourite Chicken Rice from Five Star. OK lah! Since Gurmit likes it, we like it to! haha..
There were 11 adults and 3 kids this time. Some could not make it last minute, a family was on home quarantine, one just delivered a newborn baby, etc… But there’s this big tables available at Five Star. So big and round that the table can fit all of us!
Those who were early did the ordering. We just flipped through the menu and decided on what to eat by what gets our eye’s attention. So here’s what we ate:
We had “half half”. Half a Roast Kampung Chicken.
And half a ‘White’ Kampong Chicken.
We realise that the white chicken is more popular! When the white chicken’s gone, there’s still half the ‘roast’ ones.
The Salad You Tiao. Medium Portion.
Fried You Tiao always seem to a hit eh?
When we ordered the Thai Style Crystal Chicken Feet, some were skeptical that anyone will eat it. So we ordered a small portion of it. Well, the skeptics did like it and were converted! If you never tried chicken feet before, try it!
Ngo Hiang Prawn Rolls. The kids can eat it too.
Sweet Potato Leaves with Garlic. Another dish that when you order, always suits most people’s tastes.
We thought we would order some seafood, so we had the cereal prawns. We took cereal prawns so that the kids can eat it too.
The Hainanese Mei Cai with Braised Pork. OK lah…
The Fried Sotong. Sorry for the blurish looking photo.
It’s not too bad. The sotong was not that chewy. But I think a few minutes more it will. Some pieces were on the ‘border line’ cases. haha..
It was great to meet up with everyone again. It seems the next meeting date has been confirmed too! See you all at the next outing!
