Xiao Yao Ge 逍遥阁

The row of shophouses opposite the Chinese garden MRT is always seen bustling with people during the evening time. Xiao Yao Ge is known for serving Authentic Northern East Chinese Cuisine till late.

We were expecting another chit-chatting session with some Chinese beer and Chinese BBQ Skewers. These Chinese Beers brand are known for their light taste. 

Beer 青岛啤酒 / 雪花啤酒
青岛啤酒 / 雪花啤酒 - $6 Each 

I have been searching for a good shredded potato side dish ever since my favourite shop in Chinatown closed its shutter. The Shredded Potato was addictive and fragrant with chilli oil and coriander but its still, not the best that I had eaten. While I'm expecting the dish to be warm, it was served at room temperature.

While this is one of the common dishes with a mixture of dried chilli, sesame seeds and chicken. However, I'm not very used as the plate comprised more bones than meat.

Skewers were served on a wooden board decked by grease paper. We were served the pork belly wrap with Enoki Mushrooms. With the generous amount of seasoning used, these skewers were very flavourful.

Using similar seasonings, the plain buns were flavourful and fragrant.

The Wings were well-marinated and definitely yummy. They have the typical Chinese spices omitted as these is Orlean Style Wings. The marinate is sweet and addictive.

The Mutton was tender and delicious. There was no gaminess in its taste.

Besides mutton, you can order Pork and Chicken Skewers too. They do taste as good.

While the seasonings and fragrance on most skewers were similar, most of them tasted the same but each individual is different base on the texture of the food.

The mushroom looks a bit miserable here in its portion. Nonetheless, these skewers were tasty and juicy too.

Overall, skewers are reasonably priced. With the beer and skewers, I do not mind coming back again for other food on the menu as well as their BBQ Skewers.
