Yummy Recipes, Cresent @ Kallang

 Yummy Recipes, Kallang

Quite a bit of food that we ordered at Yummy Recipes (7 Kallang Pudding Road, #01-08, tel : +65 6636-0603). Also an unexpectedly fancy decor for a restaurant located in an industrial region. 

In the interest of making this short(er) and sweet, here were some of the mention worthy.
  • Roasted pork belly was good with crispy crackling and tender meat. It wasn't very fatty.
  • Both the fried rice had a nice beady texture but the olive plate didn't have enough of flavour from olives and the pork belly one smelt a lot nicer than there were flavours.
  • Sucking pig was pretty good, but nothing comparable to those in Hong Kong.
  • Pig stomach soup was pretty good with a strong peppery flavour. But I heard it was thickened by cornstarch.
  • Assam curry fish head was awesome. It was a rich creamy curry, robustly flavoured with the sour from probably both assam and pineapples that were cooked in them. That viscous curry was vibrant from the fruits, not flat. Only gripe was for $25, there was only half a fish head. Expensive. This was included in the menu as a local dish option, not a specialty from their Shanghainese chef obviously.
  • Crispy noodles with seafood was very tasty as well. Generous portions of egg and seafood.

Overpriced!!! I went last night and I will not go back again. Read below! The prices are really expensive for a restaurant situated in an industrial estate. The service was not good, the table was too small to put all the dishes on it, the manager refused to give us another table! Instead joined another table to it. The food was unreachable, we have to stretch our hands or stand up!!

The pig stomach soup is no longer $38.
Instead, a hefty price at $56!!!!

A small plate of 3 roast combination: roast duck, char siew & cold pork slices costs $40!!!

Fried sambal with long beans & shrimps costs $15.

Steam prawns with garlic sauce costs $38.40

6pcs of eggyolk custard costs $10.80

A pot of chinese jasmine tea $6
4 small bowls of rice $4
Braised peanuts & pickled cucumber $4

Total amt: $175.40 for 4 persons is ridiculously expensive!!! I will not go back again.

With 10% service charged & GST : $206.45
