We started off with a Peking duck (Barbecued Peking Duck with Lychee Wood S$38.00 (Half Duck) / S$68.00 (Whole Duck)) feast with slices of skin dipped in sugar. Followed by sliced meat with popiah skin, leek, cucumber and a sweet sauce.6Home6

For the rest of the duck can be prepared in few ways. We had deep-fried version with dried chilli, roasted minced garlic and capsicum pepper fine salt S$10.00 which is the second serving from Peking Duck Fragrant, cripsy taste with spiciness lingering taste after.


Baked Marble Goby with Chef Tan in-house Recipe (S$9.00 per 100g). It’s my favourite dish. Chef Tan explained instead of using the usual cooking method, the fish is baked in claypot using ginger and lemongrass as the base. It was perfectly done with the uniqueness way of preparation.5home5

Homemade egg beancurd with shrimp paste, crabmeat and roe in PiPa style S$18.00. Chef Tan and his team make homemade fresh daily ingredients such as shrimp paste, mushroom, egg and water chestnut. It is deep fried served with crabmeat and roe sauce.Extremely smooth and soft!9Home9 8Home8

 Stewed Golden Noodles with Lobster and Spring Onion wrapped in O Ba Leave (Seasonal Price). Based on Chef Tan sharing, the golden noodles are made from his unique recipe and has no alkaline in it. The presentation has a visual satisfaction. Noodles are separated with lobster and sauces when serving. Lobsters are tender and fresh with flavorful sauce to go with it.7Home7

Soup of the Day S$20.00 was boiled dried vegetables with candy dates, wolfberries and pork.Soup taste natural sweet and home feel taste.

Loving the dessert to end the dinner session. Refreshing and cooling after taste was ideal after greasy session. The lunch set was quite a generous portion that can share with 2 persons though.So, you guys can try their ala-carte as sharing to provide more varieties for your lunch session.

PoTeaTo Cafe

Tiong Bahru estates are well-known with its well-maintained architectural buildings and vintage style cafes and shops. There are quite a few lists of cafes that we can explore around the area. My friend and I decided to patron PoTeaTo for our dinner session which is just 10minutes walk away from Tiong Bahru MRT station.PoTeaTo 3

The café are decorated with Halloween decorations and even came up with Halloween set. But we decided not to try on the set. We browsed through the menu and decided on our choice. Ordering and payment are made at the same time at the cashier counter. Free flow of plain water is available at a corner where all the cutleries are displayed.

Food serving time is within 15 minutes time and consider quite fast. Here are the foods that we ordered for our dinner.PoTeaTo
Ala-carte Sweet Potato fries S$7.00. Generous portion served with crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.PoTeaTo 1

Spaghetti Carbonara serves with cream sauce and crisp bacon S$12.00. The portioning is decent enough but the cream sauce is slightly diluted though. We thought that it would be nice to enhance the taste of cream sauce.PoTeaTo 2

Teriyaki grilled salmon with creamy mashed potatoes and asparagus S$17.00 was pretty good. Chef did a good job with the grilled salmon. The salmon meat was soft and tender and blends well with the teriyaki sauce.

PoTeaTo provides a casual dinning place with average foods served and affordable pricing. However, I would suggest them to come up with more interesting dishes to attract customers in based on their potato theme concept. Nevertheless it is a nice place to relax and chill with friends as the place is not crowded with people.
