“Disappointing”

Singapore's Kitchen
Ranked #479 of 854 Restaurants in Yangon (Rangoon)
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 November 2012

This place was writtten up in our out-of-date tour book as one of the best Chinese seafood restaurants in Yangon,on the Strand, with late hours and an interesting vibe, so we took a flyer - and a taxi - to try it out.

Bad start - our concierge heard only the "Strand" part and sent our taxi to the Strand Hotel. The restaurant, once we got that sorted, was no longer on the Strand but out on Athlone Road, near the very dowdy International Hotel, and right next to the Coriander Leaf Indian restaurant.

We were seated outside (not really given a choice) by a somewhat surly waiter - lots of bugs about. We could see the kitchen, where maybe one of the seven staff was actually doing something.

We ordered Hainan chicken, breaded shrimp in lemon sauce and sauteed Morning Glory. We asked for everything very hot and spicy, as is our wont.

The food came quickly. The chicken arrived with an unexpected clear soup, OK in itself. The Hainan chicken was full of sinew and bones, flavourless even with the use-on-everything mild chili sauce supplied. The shrimp was below standards of the worst North American chop suey house - very dry, sparse, served lying in not a lemon sauce but an orange sauce, very sweet. The Morning Glory was spicy and tasty, the best of the lot.

This was a very disappointing meal, especially as it cost about $30, for which cost we had just had a fabulous meal of Myanmar dishes the previous night. Our recommendation: Avoid.
