There were many dishes to select from but nosotros were quite restrained equally Jin Feng was exactly 1 of many nutrient stops for today's nutrient trail. Anyway , all my favourites were in that location 😄
The starchy sweetness stubby pearly rice was tender alongside a subtle nutty seize alongside teeth which I like. It was topped alongside savoury sweetness strips of tender braised pork belly in addition to mushroom. The braising stock , fatty in addition to crude added to a greater extent than savoury flavours to the dish in addition to greased our smacking lips 😋
(Can't create this lu rou fan inwards Singapore or Malaysia unless nosotros role the same rice , pork in addition to soy sauce 😂 )
Savoury sweetness pork belly 椌肉 was relatively drier (than 滷肉). I won't society this again.... .
Stewed bamboo shoot. I dear the agency Taiwanese create their bamboo shoots. Love the savoury sweetness alongside underlying feature sense of savour in addition to springy compaction of bamboo shoot.
Fresh , only done greens ever tastes skilful 😄
肉羹湯 Tender minced pork "cake" soup alongside mushroom in addition to bamboo shoot. Natural porky sweetness balanced alongside savouriness.
They convey a steamed soup station in addition to nosotros had a ginseng chicken. Nice , though I can't recollect much of it - enjoying the repast in addition to fellowship likewise much I guess , in addition to forgot to set on my blogger chapeau 😄
Leftovers Analysis 👉 Nothing left truly 😄 What to a greater extent than tin I say....
