Yi Qian Hong Kong Cafe

 There are many new eateries along the shop houses of rail mall and recently, we had explored this Hong Kong Cafe for a number of times, knowing that their standard and taste of food suit our tastebuds.

Ordering the Cantonese or Cha Chang Teng Style of Congee can never go wrong. Love the smooth consistency of the congee sprinkled with some chopped green onions.

Pork & Century Egg Congee 皮蛋瘦肉粥 - $8

The use of diced century egg with a shred of pork and crispy slices of fried fritters made the meal so comforting.

Shred of Pork

The Cantonese Style of Steamed Rice Roll cradling the chopped pieces of savoury and sweet char siew has been my favourite item to order from the menu too. Drenching them with the giving soy sauce makes the dish delectable too. 

Steamed Rice Roll with BBQ Pork 蜜汁叉烧肠 - $6.20

For roasted meat lovers, how about getting the Trio Combination? We picked the roasted pork belly, Char Siew and Roast Duck. 

Trio Combination 烧味三拼 - $28

The Char Siew was fatty and was Barbecued well with the caramelised layer. Savoury and packed with charred flavours.

The Crackling top with distinctive layer of meat and fats underneath. Who doesn't like the crispy layer with the soft meat texture?

Pork Belly

Love the top layer of fragrant crispy duck skin and the moist meat from the roast duck.

We also enjoyed this bowl of Shrimp Dumplings. The plump and succulent shrimp fillings were addictive. I also cannot deny that their soup tasted good too.

The twin BBQ combination with rice or noodles is a good choice if you want to have some meat pairing with noodles or rice. In this case, we chose the Char Siew and Roast Duck with Noodles.

Twin BBQ Combination Noodle 烧味双拼- $13.80

The noodles were springy and chewy. Not to mention that the BBQ Combination were above average standard too.

For the dim sum series, we had the deep-fried shrimp dumpling with delicious salad sauce. Look at the beautifully fried shape of the dumpling, isn't it pretty?

Washing down our meal with their Homemade Barley and Ice Lemon Tea.

For all the food items we ordered, we were satisfied with the taste and standard as they meet the criteria of what a Hong Kong Cafe should offer. Authentic flavours and go try it if you are in Bukit Timah Area.
