Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), Philip Street

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), Philip Street

Have read/heard quite a bit about Chaoshan Cuisine (#01-01/02 Grand Building, 17 Phillip Street, tel : +65 6336 2390). These guys are supposed to be an institution for Teochew food. Look at how deep brown that Pu'er tea is up there - it's practically tasteless. I wonder why is that.

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), pork aspic liver rolls

Both their pork aspic and fried liver rolls were delicious. The former had a nice flavour from the melty collagenic jelly while the latter was moist and didn't have a strong livery taste. Great use of spices for these starters which I didn't find excessive.

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), sambal kangkong

Sambal kang kong has lard. Pretty competent rendition.

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), leather jacket

That's stir fried leather jacket - a fish I generally like and have had numerous times in the past. They're not difficult to debone as fishes go. What disappointed me was how tiny these were compared to those that I used to have. The salty black bean sauce was awesome though.

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), steamed baby squid

The sauce for the steamed baby squids was bland. Easily rectified by the plum sauce that was served on the side.

Chao Shan Cuisine (潮山林), olive fried rice

Pretty solid smoky olive fried rice there. Gotta remember that these have chopped bits of 芹菜 - something that Google thinks is parsley or celery but it's specifically the local variety found often in beef noodles that I don't like.
