Nanzaro and I were out looking for a place to have lunch before my weekend groceries shopping. We ended up at Capstan Way and found out that Pho Tai Hoa‘s location had been taken over by a Chinese restaurant.
After looking at the photographs posted on the glass wall outside the restaurant, Nanzaro agreed to give it a try. It’s the Sichuan food that enticed him.
I wanted so much to try the Mala Xiang Guo but it’s for two and Nanzaro wanted to order his own dish. So, I’ll probably wait till Ben comes home to share with me.
The above are their take out menu. You can click on the menu to have a larger view.
There was just one other table other than us. Upon checking with server, I was told that this restaurant had opened since March 2012. Wow, it’s been that long that I did not visit this area.
This Beijing/Sichuan restaurant has picture menu which make it easier to order, especially for people who are not familiar with Chinese cuisine.
Nanzaro ordered his favourite Cumin Lamb with Rice from the lunch special. It is $7.95. The cumin lamb was not oily which is a good thing.
The Cumin Lamb with Rice came with a side dish of stir fried cabbage with dried chili and Sichuan pepper corns. A nice compliment and I was surprised that Nanzaro ate it. He usually shies away from vegetables. The cabbage was crunchy.
We were also given complimentary Spinach and Sea Weed soup. It was a clear vegetable broth with light taste and it’s nice to have the soup in cold winter days.
I had a Claypot Pork dish; also from the lunch special. It was $8.95. It came with a bowl of rice too.
The pork were coated with flour and deep fried but the coating lost it’s crunchiness in the broth. The claypot was loaded with tofu, bean curd sticks, suey choy and wood ears.
There were also string kelp and clear broad noodles at the bottom of the pot. It was a big serving and I had half of the leftover to go.
