It has been 2 years since I last visited Goldleaf Restaurant located at Amoy Street. However, it has moved to Katong Square since then. To celebrate its 47th anniversary, Goldleaf has unveiled brand-new dishes as well as brought back long-lost classics. If you are familiar with the restaurant, you will know that Goldleaf was the first in Singapore to offer Taiwanese porridge in the country back in 1971.
Oh boy! I was glad that I went because I had 3 bowls of their sweet potato porridge that night. #dontjudgeme . I didn’t expect that but comfort food always the best remedies anytime any day.
Here are the dishes I had to go with my sweet potato porridge:
Ah Ma’s Tri Platter S$10.80
This trio is their long-lost dishes with over 20 years of history making a comeback. The trio includes beancurd sticks, peanuts soaked in bean marinade and fried minced pork with olives. These are best to go with porridge.
Omelette with Chye Por S$10.80
My favourite dish that I ordered second servings shared among foodies that night. The chye por is soaked in a house marinade made with secret ingredients and adds a wonderful crunch to the fluffy omelette.
Seafood Beancurd S$9.80
Another must-have dish when you are here. The beancurd made with squid paste, abalone sauce and fresh prawn. Smooth texture Japanese beancurd used and is first steamed and then deep-fried. You certainly couldn’t stop at one piece. Trust me!
Goldleaf Double Beancurd Platter S$10.80
Silky smooth Japanese beancurd marinade is soused in a chef’s prepared soy sauce and complete with century egg specially imported from Taiwan and Taiwanese-style bonito flakes and Singapore-style pork floss.
Apart from ala-carte dishes, Goldleaf also launch their first ever ala-carte buffet starting from 2 July 2018 onwards.
