Ga-Hock Seafood @ Upp Bukit Timah Road

We last came here in June, and we are back again. It was our Sunday night family dinner. With 9 of us, this is a very economical place to eat and the food's good too.

This time Aunt and her sis ordered the following to feed us. :-)
Roast chicken. Juicy and tender. With kids around, they always love it. We notice that kids love to squeeze the lime over food. If you let them do it, you can see a big smile after they are done with it. It's like a great accomplishment for the little ones!

This is braised pork ribs. It was delicious. The meat was so soft and the sauce is delicious and addictive. You add some sauce to your rice and you can wallop half a bowl of rice kind. haha.. It's a tad oily though. Eating it once in a while is nice.

One of the favourites that people order here. Long beans with crispy 'hae bee'. (dried shrimps). You will love to nibble on the hae bee. It's addictive.

Aunt's sis, a super skinny lady had the urge to eat pork crispees! So she asked them to add them in. Look at the big piece they gave her. We save it all for her and her alone. LOL

This is a vegetarian dish. They have a fanciful chinese name for it, when translated sounds like multiple mushroom with vegetables.

It was good. All the veg have been braised till its super soft, including the carrots you see. There are various types of mushroom as well.

This is the cereal prawns. So so lah.

This is wonderful. The sambal kangkong. It smell so so good the moment it was served, a hint of the wok char, spicy enough and taste wonderful to the tongue.

All of the above, you pass the 2 $50 notes, you still get a $5 change. ;-)

If you have lots of time, eat their crabs. It's one of their popular dishes there. We did not have the mood to eat crabs when we went there, but as everyone ordered, we saw the crabs being prepared, we also wanted some. Aunt said next week she will prepare it for us at her home! (yey....)

If I ever make it to Singapore, may I go eat with you??? These dishes look absolutely scrumptuous!

And the sambal kangkong...looks like the greens my mom grew in a tub even to this day. I love it when she'd cook it in a soup with tomatoes. yum!

Oooh, the invisible crabs beckon more to me than the dishes I can see!
