Lee Kui (Ah Hoi), TEochew Restaurant.

We went to Lee Kui (Ah Hoi) Teochew restaurant yesterday. Can't remember when was the last time i actually ate in a proper Teochew restaurant. This place is an institution. You know its one of those old school restaurants the moment you walk in. The deco, the smell, the display and the old aunties who triple up as waitresses and cashiers and chit chatters. Some would say the ambiance is old fashion but if you look at it in another way, the authenticity and classiness of the restaurant sets the mood for one of the best places for Teochew food.. Of course cooked by Teochew Ah Hias (Brother).

I had crab again lol.. All you overseas folks don't get jealous. This time, cold young sri lankan mud crab steamed. Teochew cuisine prides in drawing on the natural taste of food as highlighted by how we like to eat steam fish. WHy Cold ... I don know... but they sure taste quite nice.

There was quite a bit of roe in the crab. Its acquired taste. NOt sure how many of you will like it.

Fried dou miao with salted fish. Green veg is always nice but abit on the ex side.!! $15???? I would expect things like veg to be cheap in Singapore since its so widely available.

Ti Kia fish. lol. I cant find the English name of this fish but basically its a fish which you normally have to strip off the rubbery skin. The fish is often stir-fry in ginger and soy sauce.

Braised duck for Teochews in contrast to Roast duck for the cantonese. Goose meat used to be the norm until AVA decided to put a ban on it. The duck meat was however sub standard. The meat was dry and the tofu that came with it was extremely rubbery. Go to a duck rice store if you want to eat duck meat lol.

We had some white radish, cuttlefish and pork rib soup as well. Very tasty.

P.s Sorry Hnnh and Kris for making you drool over the crab pics lol.

I totally agree with you that the crab is nice.

Lucky I did not order the duck. Shall avoid it next time too when I am there again.
