It’s one of the whatsapp discussion on where to have dinner. I am sure many of us have many whatsapp groups. This was the in-laws group where it was the MIL’s birthday dinner. It was a few days of messaging and in the end, we decided Wan Hao.
Wan Hao because MIL loves the Peking Duck there. It’s going to be a birthday treat and we thought we will go to somewhere she loves.
It was only 4 of us, and the lady in charge says half is enough. 😉
Who doesn’t like Peking Duck? What a nice arrangement they have plated it.
The wife’s favourite place for Peking Duck like her mum. Both of them have similar taste. I prefer the Impertial Treasure Super Peking Duck!
A peep into what’s inside. Dough Skin, Duck Skin, Hoisin Sauce, Julienned Scallions and Cucumbers. So simple yet so satisfying.
KopiKosongGirl and I will always remember that we flew off to Beijing and stayed on China soil for only 48 hours. Spending Valentine’s Day having Peking Ducks at 2 different restaurants. We love the 8-12 kinds of condiments that goes with the duck there!
If you want to try one of the finest Char Siu in town, it’s probably here. Char Siu made from Spanish Iberico Pork. The texture is not the usual char siu you get. It has a nice crunchy texture and Iberico pork does not need any more flavouring to make it better.
The portions are not huge. The price of this meat itself is expensive. I am salivating looking at the picture now. I can remember the taste coming back, just can’t describe it fully! hehe…
(This used to be only sold during CNY, but Wan Hao has made them available daily now. )
I can’t remember if they stated how many grams of tenderloin in the menu, but it was very delicious. No need to cut up your steak and just pick the beef chunks up using your chopsticks and nibble them. Great with rice.
The pear that was marinated with sour plum was nice though. Not a person who really likes sour plum stuff, but it was a nice crunchy fruit to eat with the beef. The 2 ladies love them, so did FIL.
Lovely vegetable dish. If you have not slurp up your rice, this sauce over the rice will make you polish it all off!
We had the rest of the duck cooked with noodles. We were quite surprised, we had so much duck meat in the noodles! Delicious stuff!
Birthday noodles! We all love E-Fu noodles and with the duck it was an additional bonus to it.
We were full, but mouth still wanting to have things to bite, so we ordered 2 desserts to share.
The Chilled Lemongrass Jelly served with Lemon Sherbet and Fresh Fruits had very contrasting flavours in 1 bowl. Sweetness from the lemongrass jelly and the super sour lemon sherbet.
We really like how sour the lemon sherbet was!
(Yes, we realise both my family and wife’s family drink lemon juice without sugar to keep ‘healthy’ !)
The other dessert we shared, the Crispy Red Bean Pancake. We had to wait a while, but it was worth the wait. Nice, fragrant and hot pancake.
It was a nice and enjoyable birthday dinner we had. If you are one of those who likes good service, the wait staff ratio here is still good. You get attended to quickly. You should have a reservation if you are coming. It’s quite popular!
