Read from the Food King’s recommendation of Orchid Live Seafood regarding their Lobster Porridge signature dish and was looking forward to get our stomach ready to enjoy. Came to branch at 1 Bah Soon Pah Rd in the afternoon and ordered the Saver Menu.
As listed, it came with the Lobster Porridge, Steven Chicken, Live Patin Fish, Mixed Vegetable, Topshell Crispy Toufu and the Red Bean Ice Cream. First dish that came was the mixed vegetable.
This dish was just normal taste like any other zhi cha store you can find in neighbourhood’s coffee shops. Nothing out of the ordinary sort of dish. Next came was the Steven chicken within a minute or so.
From the outlook, it was kind of crispy with some seasame seeds sprinkled on top. This dish was pretty tasty as compared with other places we had eaten before. This dish deserved a 4 out 5 stars since it suited our taste. Next dish that came was the Lobster Porridge.
It came rather fast after the Steven Chicken. Each of us was served with a small bowl of porridge. Since this was the main star’s attraction of Orchid Live Seafood, we had high hopes that it would be as what others had described. After taking our first taste, the expression of our faces were filled with disappointment. It was rather bland and not as what others had reviewed online as well as the Food King. Well, I guessed it would be like the saying goes: One man’s meat is another man’s poison. So as for tasting food concern, it might not be like the same for everyone. But since it was a celebration for my mum’s birthday, the disappointment was rather hard to take. Next dish that came was the Topshell Crispy Toufu.
As for this dish, it was just as normal as what you could get from hawker’s center. Nothing special about this dish though. The final dish was the Live Patin Fish.
Regarding this final dish Live Patin Fish, the meat was not sweet and soft as we would normally tasted for fresh fish. Therefore our rating would just be 2 out of 5 for it.
Other than the Steven Chicken, our overall rating for this entire meal would just be 2 out of 5 as we had looked forward having this celebration. If I have to make a choice, I will not be coming back again since not able to get what we imagined the taste would be like.
