On BC day, Ben, Nanzaro and I went out for lunch. Again, Arkensen decided to stay home.
Originally, Ben wanted to go Max Noodle House on Alexandra Road but it was closed. Then we went to check on Shanghai Morning but it was full house and there is already people waiting for tables. So, we continue to look for a place on Alexandra Road and found a new restaurant name on the previous Estea Restaurant.
The place was pretty quiet when we were there. There were only a few tables occupied. This is a big restaurant that can seats 193 at max. There is a small stage for Karaoke or performance if you look closely at the above photo. At the entrance, we noticed there are 2 or 3 small private rooms with square tables (looks like Mahjong table) in them.
Ben ordered a Mushroom/Chicken Omelete Rice. He upgraded the rice from ketchup rice to fried rice for an extra $1. It was quite a big serving. However, the sauce which came with it was starchy instead of creamy.
Nanzaro ordered the Chicken Nugget Rice for $9.95. This was a big serving. The chicken nuggets were fried to crispy.
The rice was topped with some pork sauce which is typical Taiwanese style.
Ben recommended me to order the Fish/Sour Vegetable Hot Pot as it sounds appetizing. This is $10.95. There were generous amount of fish fillet and some tofu in the hotpot.
My dish came with the above side dishes; fried salted peanuts, pickled daikon and carrot and a packaged jelly. Again, the serving was big.
The True’s Tea Restaurant accepts cash and debit card only.
