Lee Kui (Ah Hoi) Restaurant 李貴(亞蟹)席館

For those who likes Teochew cuisine, there is a restaurant along Mosque Street named Lee Kui (Ah Hoi) Restaurant. I was there for lunch one afternoon and gladly enjoyed the food and their service.

 Prawn (Hei Chor) and liver rolls. Crispy and tasty. Apparently their liver rolls are one of most popular dish. Whoever visits must try.  However, it's up to individual taste as some may prefer the usual Ngoh Hiang.

Deep Fried Prawns with Mayo. I think there's Mango puree was added to the Mayonnaise sauce.

 My all time favorite ~ Fish Maw Soup.  This was a last minute order as we were hesitating if we could finish eating all the food.  But we just went ahead ^.~  This was one of the best that I had tried so far ~ generous ingredients as you could see in the photo and it's very tasty. If the fish maws were not fresh, there would be a fishy smell.

 Braised veg with pork and mushrooms ~ great dish to go along with rice but we ordered porridge instead.  The veg and pork were simmer till very soft.

Steamed Promfret in Teochew Style. Personally I like to eat fish that's cooked in any style so this is another healthy and yummy dish.  Thou' it may cost a bit for this dish but I would not mind to pay if it came out fresh and well cooked.

There are also other of their signature Teochew dishes like Oyster Omelette, Cold Crabs, Braised Duck and Yam Paste (Or Nee) which I will like to try next time.

I have been eating Japanese food for 3 times this week and I am still not sick of itEating It was a pre-X'mas dinner with my colleagues at Irodori and we had a-la-carte dinner buffet.  There were over 100 dishes in their menu and eat-all-you-can Simley w/Sushi 3I find that the food quality is comparatively as good as Shin Minori and the price is affordable too.  I realized in both restuarants that the desserts were not included in their menu. It's quite disappointed and hopefully that they could include desserts like matcha/goma ice-cream, puddings or even strawberry shortcakes in their menu  

Sashimi Moriawase is always the 1st dish that I will order.  Fresh and sweet assortment of mix raw fish and octopus.  We had ordered twice.

 This is their signature special maki roll ~ Irodori Maki. The maki fillings were lobster salad, roe and mayo.  Thumbs up for this maki and we ordered twice for the maki.

Shishamo ~ hmm..ok.

Noodles craze ~ Yaki Udon & Soba, and Su Udon.  Of all, I went for Yaki Soba which was more tasty and the noodles were well cooked and fragrant.

 Tofu Salad ~ Simply love the salad dressing. Overall, this dish was very refreshing.

 Chawamushi ~ looks like beancurd or pudding ^.^

 Grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce and its sprinkled with sesames to enhance the fragrance.

 Pork Shogayaki ~ with ginger sauce.

 Mixed Tempura - Prawns and vegetables

 Temaki ~ Soft shell crab and california handrolls

 Grilled mid-joint chicken wings ~ oishii!

Left 1 piece of tonkatsu for photoshoot...

 Agedashi tofu for 1 serving

Age Gyoza ~ fried dumpling dipped with mayo

 Saba Shioyaki

Don't get cheated by the look of this dish ~ Green Tea Rice.  It tasted neither blend nor bitter.  It's actually quite tasty except a little salty. Somehow I think the soup was made from chicken or pork broth mixed with green tea.  Luckily, I just ordered a bowl to try as the rest were not particularly enjoyed this rice.

The filling inside the croquette was pumpkin

Here's a plate of complimentary grilled prawns to us.  Yummylicious ~ too bad, no extra servings..hehe!

A definitely great place for group dinings where you can order and taste more dishes.
