Went to the convention centre for an exhibition last weekend. Need to grab lunch before going to the exhibition halls. Perhaps it was lunch hour, there were 3-4 groups of people quieing for table when we got there.
Ordered shredded pork fried noodles, sweet and spicy pork neck fried instand noodles, roasted pork, kaya polo-bun, iced coffee and hot ribena with lemon.
To our surprise, after the drinks are being served, the kaya polo-bun was served first. Weird, because this is supposed to be the desserts (sweet). We didn't start eating but decided to wait for the mains to come. Minutes laters, all other food was served.
The sweet and spicy pork neck fried instant noodles was good (instant noodles always the safest choice), not spicy, overall was ok, just a little too salty and oily. But the shredded pork fried noodles was not good all. It was starch gravy with some shredded pork and veges poured over oil-fried noodles. The gravy was plain and little, not enough to cover the noodles. Luckily, they provide some chilli sauce to go with it. Otherwise, the whole dish was pretty much tasteless. I didn't finish the dish because it was plain and dry.
The roasted pork was fine - average, not bad but nothing fanstatic to be mentioned. As for the kaya polo-bun, I didn't taste any kaya in it but found some pineapples cubes. Felt weird too, based on my understanding of polo-bun, it actually doesn't have any pineapple ingredients. It was called polo-bun aka pineapple bun in chinese (菠蘿包) for its golden yellow, bumped surface which looks like pineapple. Thus, I am not too sure if this restaurant is trying to be different by adding pineapple cubes in it.
As a whole, it was quite a pricey lunch for such kind of food standard. We didn't enjoy the food especially the shredded pork fried noodles which was pretty much tasteless. Other than that, environment was alright and its service was just fine (they are not charging service charges/tax, so, can't complain much).
