J and I have been talking about this for the longest time- Taiwanese porridge at Goodwood Park Hotel. Finally made it to a 6.30pm dinner. Luckily we went early. The restaurant filled up pretty quickly once 7.15pm rolled around. Skipped the buffet option (since we aren't fans of durian either) and opted for a la carte dishes under its Taiwanese porridge menu.
For S$25, the deep fried pomfret was crisp and beautifully filleted. No additional sauces. A manageable size. It came with chilli and salt in a little dish at the side. That was delicious. Yes yes, I'm not supposed to overload the stomach this week too. These sort of foods were absolutely fine. Heh. Plus I took a long stroll home after dinner, so the stomach was happy.
In fact, salted eggs weren't on the menu as an option. At least I couldn't find it, and neither could the server whose face looked completely disturbed by dunno-what. Or perhaps it was lumped together with the salted fish. Whatever. We asked the server to sort this out, and the salted eggs arrived properly. In case you're wondering, the menu is printed in English. No Chinese words.
You know how it is with friends right? You always discover new things about them on an annual basis. Well, at this dinner, I discovered that J prefers the salted egg yolk more than the white. I zoom straight for only the white. BEST. No need to fight over who gets which part of the salted egg. Hahahaha.
