Redhouse – CNY Tiffin Goodies

20160205_183230To begin with, Redhouse has been around since 1976, 4 years even before I was born. 

Held our company’s 2015 CNY dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the succulent seafood especially the chili crabs. Tried Redhouse Seafood’s Reunion Takeaway Tiffin Set’s consisting of

20160205_183213Sautéed Trio Seafood with Pineapple in Chef’s Spicy Sauce

Lets start with the sauce. Mildy spicy but did temporary prick my tongue slightly thou I can tolerate good heat. Nice pineapple fruits stir fried with chunky fish meat, scallop and prawns served on Opeh Leaf. Redhouse counts a good number of expats as their regulars hence spice is always “wiltered” down. If you love fiery food, ask for more chili.

Surprised to see Lily Bulbs in this dish. Also know as “Bai He” in Mandarin, it means “100 embraces” and seen as auspicious symbol. This dish didn’t come with any sauce and was lightly sautéed presumably to preserve the taste of fresh mushrooms, lily bulb and crunchy asparagus. Nice and clean dish. Not suitable for heavy palate diners thou.

Originating from Hangzhou China (also known as Dong Po Rou), this slab of pork belly came with ribs beneath layers of meat and fat. The sauce was nicely prepared. Smooth, not overly starched up, slightly sour and light brown in color. Many fans of Dong Po Rou love the long braising process which gives the meat it’s “sliding off e bone” kind of texture. I like mine tender and this was not overly jelly soft.

Steamed Fried Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf

The rice came with yam, pork, dried prawns and mushrooms stirred fried with high heat giving those bits of ingredients a charred surface. Enjoyed this dish as rice wasn’t clumped up, over moist and flavours were just right.

Overall, a healthy tiffin set with good usage of fresh and wholesome ingredients. Not for e salty and rich palate thou.
