Yes, its finally da RABBIT’s Birthday!!
Sweetie Muffin had made a reservation with Ah Yat Abalone after seeing a groupon promotion..
Here goes the menu.. It consists of 6 courses:
Dish #1: Chilled Whole Fresh Abalone w/Seafood Salad in “Hu Ma” Sauce
The abalone was really hard to chew being that it is a cold dish… However the salad tasted great with the Sesame Sauce.
Dish #2: Fish Maw and Dried Scallop in Thick Soup
Tasted normal and acceptable – just like the normal Shark’s Fin Soup texture you get from wedding banquets. The broth is starchy…
Dish #3: Pan-Fried American Kurobuta Pork w/ Teriyaki Sauce
The Teriyaki sauce is too sweet, making it really ‘yucky’. I didn’t really like this dish. The flavouring is too strong… In fact, I ate only half of it and passed on to poor Muffin to finish…
Dish #4: Deep-Fried Fish Fillet w/ Honey Pepper Sauce
Again, this dish is more yucky than the previous. The Honey Pepper Sauce is very sweet.. Tasted like sweet & sour pork sauce. The fish is deep-fried which I am not a fan of fried food.. But amazingly I like MacDonald’s Fish Fillet.. This is just too much.. I took a bite and passed it on to Muffin too 🙁
Dish #5: E-fu Noodle w/ Shredded Abalone
This is another very starchy dish. I was already feeling sick with indigestion from the previous dishes so I gave up eating this as well. This was a far cry from the E-fu Noodle served by Marina Mandarin Hotel.
Dish #6: Chilled Dessert w/ Aloe Vera and Mango
Fortunately this lightly flavoured dessert is able to get rid of all the yucky taste from the previous few dishes.. So it ended everything well..
The service is very prompt. In fact the dishes came even before we can finish eating the existing dishes.. Hence we felt ‘hurried’ to vacuum our food off our plates somehow.. This was perhaps due to an influx of groupon customers I think… But that is definitely not my idea of fine dining as we felt pressurised to finish our foodie and ended up with indigestion 🙁
Chilling @ Marina Barrage Afterwards to end my Birthday
My Birthday Prezzies 🙂
I wouldn’t want to visit the restaurant again after all my indigestion nightmare. In fact I took Medical Leave shortly after as I felt really queasy.. Awwww I do have a weak stomach 🙁
