Today I finally went but the item I wanted was unavailable, so I ordered pork trotters in abalone sauce with rice and a side of chicken feet in abalone sauce.
However when I took the contents out from the bag, I realised I was given soup instead. I called them up and was surprised that I could come back for a refund or collect the dish at a later time. Anyway, when I went, I was impressed that they kept records of my phonecall and the details.
Not many Chinese restaurants will bother with customer service especially when they have a good reputation of customers.
When I went, it was my first time dining because I usually get takeouts. On the table there were disposable chopsticks and spoons, and they even had tea on the table and paper cups.
As well as that, there was a big jug of soy sauce to pour on the roast meat if you felt that it was not salty enough.
Most Chinese roast meals are unhealthy, but I felt that this one was quite healthy, at least they did not pour oily soy sauce or have roast meats tasting like syrup.
The accompanying spring and ginger sauce was not salty as well.

This was the takeaway I had. After walking approximately 10 minutes on a windy cold road, the rice was amazingly hot that it burnt my mouth!
It was about 10 degrees that day, and I am surprised the rice was still piping hot.
The pigs trotter were hairless and soft that they came off the bone easily.
The abalone sauce was not the thick sauce I was expecting but a watery one.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Roast pork and chicken liver with rice:
The rice was not as hot as the takeaway but just right.
The roast pork here is slightly different to the roast pork from other places, it it slightly crispy and glazed on the outside.
It has a few spots that are charred which seem to be a result of real spit fire roasting and not the electric roasting.
The centre of the roast pork is soft and juicy and not overly sweet or salty.
As for the chicken liver, it was surprisingly silky in the centre with the occaisional crispy bits that have been charred on the outside.
The livers also had chicken hearts attached to it which I should of tried.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Chicken feet in abalone sauce
This tasted the same as the pork trotters, however the chicken feet were smaller than expected, and the soybeancurd sheets were nice and soft and full of abalone sauce flavour because it soaked the sauce.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Ginger and spring onion sauce
This is the best ginger and spring onion sauce because it is not salty at all, and you can put lots of it with your rice providing they give it to you.
It was nice dining there because you can ask for a side of ginger and spring onion sauce even if you didnt order chicken.
Since the ginger and spring onion sauce is not salty, you can always adjust accordingly with the soy sauce.
But for me, the saltiness was just right.
