 Another return visit to Ming Chung Restaurant for an authentic Xing Hua Cuisine.

Prawn Paste Chicken or Har Cheong Gai is a popular dish in Singaporean & Malaysian Cuisine. This mouth-watering dish boasts a perfect balance of flavours and texture. These chicken pieces were well marinated in prawn paste and a mixture of seasonings, resulting in a delightful umami-rich taste with a hint of sweetness.

A delightful rendition of the traditional Lor Mee dish, incorporating Xing Hua noodles. These rice noodles are thick and are perfect for soaking up the rich and flavourful gravy. The gravy is a thick and glossy mixture which coats the noodles generously, infusing them with aromatic essence from the ingredients such as pork belly, eggs, yam, pork, and vegetables, elevating the dish to new heights.

Of all the staples of Xing Hua Cuisine, I never get their Fried Bee Hoon. Besides being a delightful dish with a harmonious blend of flavours, the fine and delicate texture of the Bee Hoon is to die for. The combination of garlic, onion, and vegetables adds savoury goodness. Proteins like pork belly, lean meat, and shrimp further enhance the dish with satisfying elements of the protein.

Besides enjoying the authentic cuisine, we ordered some beverages like Chinese tea and barley to pair along.
