Traditional Cantonese food

Posted by Dawn at Friday, September 25, 2009
Today, I went out with a few colleagues to Geylang for lunch. It was a very nice home cooked Cantonese meal which up to now, am still drooling over it.

I love traditional and simple food.

Sik Wai Sin Eating House is situated between Lor 15 and Lor 13, on the right hand side. It is opened from 1145am to 230pm and from 545pm to 9 pm. It has been around for over 40 years.

My 'almost-70 yr old' colleague brought us there and he specifically chose the dishes that got this eating house started in the good old days.

We had black chicken herbal soup

Simple stir fry kailan with prawns which seemed so simple, but the taste was absolutely delicious. Could taste the XO sauce and its unlike other vegetable dish with lots of gravy. This dish was so tasty even without the gravy.

Then we had steamed minced pork with salted fish. One of my all-time favourite dishes which goes so well with rice or porridge! The blend of fats and lean pork was just right. Even the salted fish was very fragrant.

And lastly, their famous steamed song fish head which was so fresh and tender!

There's even pork lard in this dish to make it very tasty!

All in all, a very fulfilling meal which I would recommend for big families. This is the kind of eating house which we can get used to and grow up eating in.

All in all, its about $15-20 per person. But because my colleague was so generous, he paid for all 4 of us! Will definitely be back again!
