Nian Nian You Yu

An auspicious name when translated means abundance in the year that captured my attention as I screened through the rows of hawkers on a sunday evening. Given the healthier logo and the bright signage at the top and right hand side had added to my curiosity. Moreover, I saw a man ordered a bowl of special rice in light brown filled with vegetables.

A closer look on the menu had given me the exact answer that the bowl of rice is of healthier choice as it is brown rice with vegetables.

The word "Red Wine" on their menu drew my attention further. Other than red wine chicken, I had never come across Red Wine Fried Fish. I proceed with my order of such rare meal in Mee Sua soup for a light combination.

 Waiting time was quite long and I was told to take a seat first even though it was Self Service. While waiting, I had took the sauce from their stall. This kind of bean sauce was mixed with a little spiciness goes very well with the fish meat especially on those non-fried version.

 I couldnt wait any longer but to have this Red Wine Fish as my first bite. It was battered and deep fried to this golden red brown color and it turned soggy after putting them right into the bowl of mee sua soup.

There was a faint taste of the red wine aka "Hong Chao" flavour and not overpowering taste. However, the smell of flour was definitely stronger and texture with the sogginess was a let down.

Though we seldom get to see Red Wine's fish in the market and such combination usually entice me, but at a bottom line, I still feel that quality of fish can be of better much improvement. The soup base was not too bland but did not have the wow factor.
