My dad and I, were greeted into the restaurant with wide, pleasant smiles. This is one of the things i look out for personally when I enter a restaurant. We were then seated with the menu’s in front of us. We decided to try the chap chay. In Chinese chap means stir fried and chay, vegetables.
The waiter, then lead us to a table, which had an assortment of vegetables. So basically, we had to fill our bowl with the veggies of our choice and then the noodles. There was tomato noodles, whole wheat noodles flat noodles and spinach noodles and next to it, an assortment of proteins. Next, we had to pick out the sauces according to our taste, spicy or not too spicy. This was then stir fried. When we got back, there was a little surprise waiting for us at our table. Crispy banana with vegetables. It was a delicious explosion of flavours. Finally, the stir fried food was sent to our table.
The idea was that we could different combinations and, Oh did we!1 The taste was spectacular, one reason being that it was freshly made. The different flavours of the elements worked in harmony, creating a burst of flavour. I absolutely loved it, an empty plate being proof enough.
Next was desert. I was eagerly waiting to order the jellied water chestnuts in coconut milk, having tried it before. Needless to say, i enjoyed every bit of it.
The check was given to us, accompanied with two complementary heart shaped chocolates, which i think was a very cute idea. At the end of it all, we were left with pot bellies and well content.
It was a wonderful dinner and i wouldn’t mind going again, or rather, i would love to. To anyone who wants to try something new or even to go out for a bite, i would honestly and highly recommend chap chay, as personally, i loved every minute of it
