Note: Shin Yeh Bistro has ceased operations at this location.
We were actually thinking of having dinner at Zhou’s Kitchen at Novena but it has been replaced by Shin Yeh Bistro! Since it’s also by Tung Lok, and we did enjoy Shin Yeh Restaurant at Liang Court, we decided to give it a try…
Hubby was enticed by the claypot fish that was served to the table next to us, but we couldn’t find the item in the menu… Finally we asked the waitress and that’s when we were told that there were special items not included in the menu, including the Claypot Fish and Three Cup Chicken. Huh? Why so special? Anyway, the claypot fish is seasonal price and ranges from $5 to $9 per 100g of fish, so ask for the price before ordering!
The whole soon hock was deep fried and very delicious! There were also slices of beancurd, eggplant and mushroom, so this dish was actually quite filling.
We also ordered Wok-fried French Beans with Minced Pork because it was going for an opening special offer at $1. Delicious but rather small plate, don’t think it’s worth the usual price of $9.90….
Hubby had his favourite braised minced pork over rice while I had the mee sua with oysters and intestines. I loved the mee sua! Very simple but warms the heart.
Service wise, the waitresses were pretty attentive so we could order quickly and our teas were always promptly refilled 🙂
We also wanted to try the Three Cup Chicken, but decided to allocate more tummy space and budget for the not-very-cheap fish… so I’m pretty sure we will be coming to this place sometime in the near future 😛
