We dived straight for the Signature Hua Diao Kampung Chicken ($28 for small). A claypot with chicken in a herbal broth sounded comforting. And it was. The chicken pieces were not the most tender but had a rustic bite and feel to them which I rather enjoyed. The broth had plenty of Chinese herbs and a shot of hua diao wine. Instead of unpleasant bitter notes, it was rather sweet (not in the sugar sense) with the goodness of yu zhu (a herb also known as Solomon's seal).
Yu zhu is believed to be good for one's lungs, stomach and throat among many other benefits. Hey, it is believed to curb excessive hunger too! Moohahaha.
Anyway, the claypot dish also came with a plate of veggies with tang-o, long cabbage, tau pok, mushrooms, lotus roots and slices of huai shan (also known as Chinese wild yam). Huai shan is apparently good for the spleen, lowering blood sugar and
What scared me was the Mongolian Pork Ribs with Chili Sauce & Mayonnaise, Topped with Black & White Sesame Seeds ($12). Unfortunately, wayyyy too oily.
Good thing there was the Cabbage Cooked with Superior Stock ($10) to counter all that nasty grease. The nai bai cabbage was still crunchy and was cooked in a chicken (I think) broth with a very generous sprinkling of wolfberries.
With an in-house dessert stall, order your fill of bubble tea and shaved ice desserts.
I had an Iced Honey Green Tea ($2.50 for small) which was very fragrant and not too sweet.
I don't mind returning for that one pot of chicken!
