Oriental Chinese Restaurant 东方美食

Walking along the row of shophouses on New Bridge Road, you can never miss out on Oriental Chinese Restaurant for their signboard is not only striking red in colour but also takes up a few units of shop spaces consecutively in the row. Every time when I pass by the place in the evening, the restaurant never fails to be packed with people and is always as bustling as it seems.

My trip to Oriental Chinese Restaurant can never be completed without Chinese beer. This is the best pairing especially when we are having the skewers.

Tsing Tao Beer

Flipping through the menu, there are a few styles of Shredded Potato and I'm glad that I had chosen the chilli & sour potato as the taste was close to what I have been looking for. The sour taste was addictive and shredded potatoes were stirred fried with chilli, green pepper and shredded carrot.

Another staple dish we like is none other than the French beans, It was stirred and fried with garlic and chilli.

Someone has been craving Baby Lobsters for a while and her wish was granted. The taste was not too bad and fragrant. Gloves were given to diners so that we can deshell these Baby Lobsters without dirtying our hands.

Taiwan Pork Sausage ($1.80), Chicken ($1.20), Chicken Wing ($2.50), and Mushroom ($1) come together on a plate. Like many places, the seasonings on their skewers were similar to each other.

Shredded Pork in the hot sauce was sweet and addictive. It was stirred and fried with green pepper, shredded carrot and black fungus. Perfect if you have a bowl of white rice to pair with it.

You might want to give these XLB a miss for the skins were too thick and totally not nice at all.
