zhou’s kitchen, tung lok group

the search for a family dinner venue is always rather stressful – u need to think of a place that would appeal to e oldies, e young ‘uns n all the in-betweens, n yet be affordable enough for a group meal at the same time.

zhou’s kitchen at square 2, novena offers a pretty compelling solution to this problem. with 10 set menus to choose from (for anything from 1 up to 10 people per set), private dining room options n a sound system in case u need to play the classic o.b. “happy bersh-hday” song clearly recorded in english by taiwanese singers.

it’s not the poshest place if that’s what u’re looking for. it’s a bit more clean-cut, casual dining but the smart and modern decor makes up for it. just be prepared for the headache if u can’t deal with screaming children – the acoustics in the restaurant are pretty harsh, u’d probably be able to hear a pin drop.

foodwise, i was truly impressed. great value for money at $238++ for 8 persons and at pretty generous portions no less.

all dishes were consistently good – from peking duck with pancakes to crispy prawn with oats to my favourite staple, ee fu noodles – the table just cldn’t stop going on about how good everything was.

peking duck

what i really loved were the fujian style meat rolls – juicy, crispy n tasty but not too salty – and the chilli crab with mantou. who knew a casual chinese diner like this would serve good chilli crab? n the portions weren’t small either.
