慈缘轩 (Ci Yan Xuan) Chinatown

Finally had a chance to dropby Ci Yan Xuan again, and Special Menu for that day: Spicy Noodle (麻辣面) & Eight Treasury Porridge (八宝粥).

As usual, the porridge is nice, with lots of beans & nuts ingredients, a nice size for 2 to share. But abit disappointed with the Spicy noodles as can't really taste the spicyness and ingredients is just a few stalk of red & white carrots & a few pieces of mock mutton.

Was told by the owner that on Chinese New Year's Eve, they are going to open until mid-night & on that day, they would have more delicacies such as Peng Cai (盆菜), spring-rolls, porridge etc. Was told that several people already ordered their Peng Cai ($58 for small, $88 for bigger version) which consists of vegetables, different types of mushrooms & mock abalone for their reunion dinner.

With its extension of business hours, I would think it will be a good restpoint for those who are visiting Chinatown on the Eve for supper. :-)

Address: 8 Smith Street (shophouse near end of Food Street)

Tel: 6225 9026 (If you want to confirm menu of the day:P)

Usual Opening Hours: 12pm-9pm?

I like their Lotus Leaf Rice, only have once. Don't know when got the chance.

Been there once, i find that their cooking is nice, even take away, it still tastes good after 1-2 hrs. There is many veg. food eateries in Chinatown, which i love to see ...

And also free veg food @ BTRT (yet to try, but will donated lah :)), plus their Dim Sum eateries on Level 2 is opened.
