Opened not too long ago at Chinatown Point was Wang Zai Express, a Hong Kong style café that also serves a small selection of Japanese dishes. To think about it, I'm actually flying off to Hong Kong again next week. Hehe... :P
Beef Fries S$7.90
My two BFFs and I tried the beef fries as a starter. Cooked a la black pepper, the beef slices were tender enough, sitting on top of crinkle-cut fries. It wasn't a particularly memorable snack, but it was pretty good to share for three people.
Fried Potato Croquette Curry Udon S$9.90
The udon (Japanese wheat-flour noodle) didn't quite make it as it wasn't springy at all, while the curry was lacking in richness. Having said that, the potato croquette was actually not bad as the filling was pretty sweet.
Chicken Chop Dry Noodles S$10.90
As aptly captured by the name of the dish, the egg noodles, chicken chop and minced pork were too dry. Even though the chicken was glazed pretty well, it was tough. I guess the sunny-side up egg was the saving grace, to say the least.
Famous Triple Eggs Congee S$10.90
Out of the three main dishes ordered, the congee with raw, salted and century eggs was the best. I really enjoyed the addition of salted fish that added depth to the dish, alongside the braised peanuts that were pretty sweet.
HK Sock Milk Tea S$1.70
If I ever came back to the eatery, it'd perhaps be to just drink the hot milk tea. Even though it definitely wasn't the best I've ever had in my life, it was pretty smooth with an adequate amount of sweetness.
The food was disappointing. Pika's advice: I don't think I have any advice today, but do note that a glass of warm water is S$0.50.
