East Ocean @ Takashimaya

12:00 PM 2 Comments

I'm not sure how a visit to Imperial Treasure at Takashimaya ended up at East Ocean, or so I blame my companions and my being late.

Regular table getup.

Three Kinds of Roast Meats ($28)

A roast meat platter is a must at chinese restaurants, at least it is a gauge of the restaurant's culinary abilities. Neither was flattering on the palette, even when they had a peking duck option.

Double Boiled Soup ($12)

Daily soup that was on the sweet side.

Stir Fried Lotus Root ($18)

This seriously looked better on photo that in actual life - a disappointing dish that was not here nor there in flavour and presentation.

Homemade Tofu with Assorted Mushrooms ($18)

A supposed signature vegetarian dish with mushrooms that ended up more ordinary than not.

Seafood with Vermicelli ($28)

Finally a hotpot that deserves some mention at least - fresh seafood in a tasty hotpot with vermicilli.

Steamed Bun with Salted Egg Yolk ($6)

Molten custard buns that I couldn't bear to give a miss to.

Full marks for the molten lava consistency but the pau was on the sweet side overall.

A disappointing experience at East Ocean - maybe don't bother with their photographed signatures and head for the dimsum.

  1. I have always read and hear great reviews of their food but never got the change to try out their food. Maybe I should get myself lost and late next time I am in Orchard haha
