Met up with my fellow bunny welfare volunteers for CNY lohei and dinner. Yifeng recommended we visit the White Restaurant cos the food is pretty good and price pretty reasonable. Without further ado, here are the photos and comments:
Lohei 鱼生 – Portion looked small but actually it’s ideal as we ordered a lot of food. Liked it that the sauce was not too sweet and overpowering.
Sambal Lala 叁巴啦啦 – Recommended dish. Sambal was fragrant but not spicy and the lala was fresh and the meat very tender.
Signature Meat and Seafood Roll 招牌虾枣 – Recommended dish. This was delicious and all ingredients very fresh. There is a roll of bean curd skin right in the middle of the roll. The roll was generous and full of fillings.
Signature White Beehoon 招牌白米粉 – Recommended dish. Again ingredients was generous and the broth very flavorful. The beehoon soaks up the broth nicely and while the taste is somewhat lighter than the beehoon from typical zhichar stalls but it’s still good. I had like 3 helpings of it.
Sweet and Sour Pork 咕噜肉 – Pork was crispy and goes well with the tangy sauce which is a hint on the sour side.
Prawn Omelette 虾煎蛋 – Recommended dish. Full size prawns were used in this omelette which was fried to perfection and totally fluffy.
Sambal Sweet Potato Leaves 叁巴番薯叶 – Recommended dish. This really tasted like a homecooked dish and I really liked it. The sambal is fragrant but not spicy and the potato leaves is just nice with a bit of bite but not mushy.
Salted Egg Prawns 咸蛋虾球 – Recommend dish. Salted egg taste was just nice and not too thin. Prawns were big and juicy but this dish is best eaten while hot.
Red Garoupa Teochew Style 红石斑潮州式 – Fish is very fresh and succulent but as we ordered quite a lot of dishes. Most of us were quite full by the time this was served so in a way could not enjoy this dish fully. I do like sour vegetables with steam fish.
Verdict – The food was good and the restaurant is quite well spaced out so that no one feels packed in and can enjoy their food in a pleasant environment. Pricing is reasonable and definitely worth a visit with a big group again.
