Tung Lok Signatures @ Clark Quay

How does it feel like to meet someone for the very first time?

Butterflies in the stomach?

Sweating palms?

Thousand imaginations flew into my mind as I walk closer and closer to the destination.

“I’m at Orchard MRT, wearing a white top…I’m very tall”

And I replied with another sms:

“I’m wearing a black top, black blazer, black pants, black mascara and black pumps. I’m very short”

I immediately spot the person, true enough, very tall indeed.

As we met for the second time, I suggested going for Chinese food instead.

What drew me to Tung Lok is their award-winning celebrity chef Sam Leong and their modern Chinese cuisine.

The most expensive siew yoke (roast pork) I’ve ever eaten so far. $9 for a tiny plate and comes with a slab of mustard, it is highly recommended by food reviewers and the restaurant itself as appetizer.
The hot stone pot rice looks impressive but it tasted like a bottle of extremely salty soy sauce.

The colourful combination of ingredients for the noodles immediately caught our attention. Too bad it tasted like a bottle of plain distilled water.

As we tried to lower down our expectation, the homemade spinach beancurd came to rescue.
And in case you wonder who is that tall chap…

She is JOjo, Malaysian born, Singapore trained, currently pursuing Traditional Chinese Medicine (cool eh~), tall, sweet looking, silky straight hair, very available...but make sure you are above 190 cm :)
