Big Chef Restaurant / 大可以飯店

January 23, 2015

Sauteed pork jowl meat w vegetables in satay sauce - 2

J's comment > not bad; very crisp pork jowl, also the least oily dish of the night

Stir fried scallop and chicken w chili pepper - 2

J's comment > both chicken and scallops juicy, not dry at all nor overcooked; oily dish though...

Fried rice w assorted seafood and avocado - 2

J's comment > nothing really unusual about this fried rice, your avg stuff; the 'avocado' was just really little bits of avocado as you can see, couldn't really taste it either

Auntie Song's fish soup (small) - 2

J's comment > supposedly one of the signature dishes here, not sure what the fuss is about; decent soup, fish not smelly at all, but at the same time, slightly too much vinegar; texture not as thick as this kind of soup usually shows up as

Pan fried Japanese style eggplant - 1

J's comment > flavor was actually decent but dang, the oil in this dish! I couldn't bring myself to eat a whole piece and hence despite the well cooked eggplant (soft and flavorful, but unfortunately these two points were achieved by drowning the poor eggplants in oil), I won't order this again, and hence the '1'

Complimentary almond sweet soup - 2

J's comment > almond flavor present but not too strong; not too sweet either

Extra Comment
Dishes in general very oily. Big Chef also specializes in hot pot, but not the AYCE kind. Parking (as is the usual on anywhere on Alexandra is a nightmare, but at least there are a few spots in front of the resto that are reserved w buckets for Big Chef's clientele, if you go early you will probably get one of these, otherwise... good luck.
