~ Retro Yummilicious @ Marina South Curry House ~

Our trip down to 100AM (previously known as Amara Shopping Centre) was extremely fruitful and rewarding. Thanks to the invite to a Food Tasting session, we found another gem hidden within the newly renovated shopping mall along Tras Street (near Tangjong Pagar MRT).

Tucked away quietly at a corner of level 3 is Marina South Curry HouseStepping into the restaurant brings back good old memories as the furnishes and little displays on the shelves are items that Hubby and I were once so familiar with. Melodic Chinese oldies playing in the background filled up the ambiance and atmosphere, sending us back to the 70s.

We were delighted by the variety of dishes and set meals it has on the menu which is reasonably priced. 

I spotted something special while scanning through the beverages section - Iced Buah Long Long! This is a refreshing drink that we don't usually see on the menu. It is a MUST ORDER for us and MUST TRY for those who likes something different for a change.

Buah Long Long fruit is very fibrous and can be rather sour on its own. I love how they have added in the sour plump powder into the blended drink to perk up the flavour making it so refreshing!

The children had Iced Lemon Tea and Iced Sour Lime which were equally cooling. Their Ice Milk Tea is another alternative if you prefer a sweeter option.

Here comes the appetizer! Fried sweet potato and Fried onion rings. Denver and Gladys loved the combi and it was all gone in a swift.

Salted Egg Chicken Wing - recommending this dish strongly as it will be a favourite among adult and children! The chicken wings were served with a nice coating of salted egg on the golden brown skin. I love the sweetness and tenderness of the chicken leaving a delectable after-taste. Being a salted egg lover, I would welcome a more distinctive and stronger flavour of salted egg to compliment the dish further.  This is a dish Denver and Gladys will FIGHT for!

Luohan Chye - a decent vegetable dish with a nice mixture of toufu, taupok, bok choy, mushroom, carrot and baby corn. Simple yet appetizing.

Old Village Beansprout - Beansprout is not a dish that we would normally order but I must say I adore this dish so much that I just love to have MORE! Nicely fried with egg and dong fen, this dish goes extremely well with rice.

Here comes the MAIN ATTRACTION - Signature Claypot Fish Head Bee Hoon. New item added on the menu, this dish has no milk added into the broth. Yet the taste is full of sweetness and richness which comes from Chef Gan's unique soup stock combination after simmering for over 6 hours.

Fresh sea bass is used in this dish and it goes perfectly well with the thick, tangy springy bee hoon within the soup broth. Thin slices of ginger fill the pot and it adds on to the aroma and taste. Each and every bite is heavenly and I'm surprised that no MSG is used in the cooking process.

If you like to order this dish, do note that waiting time is about 10 - 15 minutes.

Red Curry Chicken - Since it is called Curry House, we can't leave without tasting the curry! Marina South Curry House offers Red, Yellow and Green curry. We were served with Red Curry Chicken (in a mini-wok) with white rice.

The spiciness of the gravy was so empowering that it overwhelmed my entire taste-bud! Even Hubby thought it was a little heavy for the dish. I was not able to savour the chicken and potato in comfort as savaging my tongue with Ice Buah Long Long was my utmost task! ^_^

We asked for Yellow and Green curry to compare. After another round of tasting, we concluded that yellow curry is our favourite and recommended choice. Both curries were not as spicy as compared to the red curry but I favour yellow because it does not have a tinge of sourness as compared to the green curry.

Curry with Bread - another appetizing combination

Despite having a very filled tummy, the children always have room for dessert. Triple Delight rounds up our food tasting session with Marina South Curry House. Served with 3 different flavours of ice-cream, corn flakes, chocolate wafer biscuits and topped with whipped cream and cherry, this is a heartening dish for our kiddos.

Thank you for having us and we enjoyed the dishes (Curry and Non-curry). We look forward coming back to try out the other dishes and drinks on our next visit.
