Swatow Restaurant- Celebrating Mum's Birthday

Celebrating my mum's birthday at a restaraunt in Toa Payoh. They kinda specialized in Teochew cuisine. Food here is nice, not too salty like some places..but there was a very zealous staff who first tried to sell me the set menu that I kindly declined. The same person later also attempted to 'sneakily' 'made' us order medium size serving for each dish we ordered!! There were only 7 of us and not everyone of us are gonna eat all the dishes! We had to stopped her and told her no!... all small portion except the hor fun..I mean we were there to enjoy food not to eat like scavengers

Bean curd with ginkgo and tao kee

 Spinach with mushrooms

Jelly Porkie! 
This is a teochew cold dish :)

 Crispy skin roast chicken 
*nothing special ..but skin quite nice *

Look at that big oyster...
We love orrh lua ..
( seldom eat this now )

Tender venison 
those shredded stuff are 
actually fried ginger.. goes well 
with the meat 

Prawns coated with salted egg!!
nice amount on each prawn..
Mango sago pomelo
But where is the pomelo!

Orh nee!! ( Yam paste with pumpkin and gingko nuts )

Happy birthday mum!
Happy mother's day too 
to my mum and grandma :)
