i like the Ginger Pear Tea (right).. the left one is specialty coffee (don't remember the exact name)..

Savoury Egg Custard with Oysters this one.. taste like 燉蛋 + 蠔餅..

Duck in Red Curry Sauce
A spicier curry made from coconut milk & our own red curry paste. Grilled smoked duck breast, seasonal vegetables; Spicy peanut gravy

Spring Lamb with Chili Sauce
Grilled rack of lamb, seasonal vegetables 
Braised Pork Belly w/ Balsamic Vinegar Sauce's very tender.. & yet you won't feel very oily/greasy.. they put a lot of 功夫 in it..

Shrimp in Sweet Tom Yum sauce
..we love this sauce as it's little spicy..

sadly we didn't have a good experience here..
there were only a few tables of guests that night but servers were not attentive.. slow & not nice..

below was our first round of sushi & sashimi.. everything looked good (pay attention to the spicy salmon sushi on the top right)..

here's the sushi & sashimi we re-ordered.. look at the spicy salmon sushi below.. they didn't even bother to mix the sauce with the sashimi!! & the amebi sashimi were frozen-like & flavorless..
