This is the first time I'm trying Ministrone Soup, as we seldom have this in vegetarian cafes. Sadly, this soup did not meet up to the standard which I have hoped for. Ingredients comprise of chopped celery, tomatoes, lettuce and pineapples. It tasted very "ketchupy" which sunnie tart would definitely hate it. But well, I didnt know celery is part of the ingredient, if not, I would never have ordered it.
Not much of a surprise to me, as the chicken chunks used is the normal "salted chicken" (盐酥鸡) which we order in mixed vegetables rice. This is the grilled version mixed in special sauce. In fact, it was supposed to come with rice, but we ordered without, as we wanted to try the baked rice. It is definitely a MUST to have with rice, as it is way too saltish. I was kind of disappointed that the price is the same without rice.
Baked Seafood Rice $8.90
I guess this was the best dish for the day. Portion is big and filling for 2 of us (luckily). There are a lot of ingredients in this baked rice and the cheese was yummy. This is not suitable for people who do not take mock meats. Hence, do order this dish if you visit.
We were last served with Mango Sago which was supposed to be on the house.
Mango Sago with Ice Cream $5.90
The mango syrup is blended and served with mango chunks and pomelo saps at the bottom. It is then topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Kinda similar to the usual dessert (杨枝甘露) that we eat, with an extra ice cream topping. Hence, its nothing special.
The overall experience was ok, and food is still quite up to the normal average standard. However, I guess due to some miscommunication, I had to pay for the dessert (which I did not order) at an extra $6.50. That could have been saved. I guess I wont' go back for a second try.
