Lunch At Janice Wong

久しぶりにお目にかかるお友達とランチをご一緒してきました。3ヶ月ぶりくらい。気になるお店があったのでお付き合いいただいたのですが、たまたま前日にお友達とのランチの場で話題になっていたそうです。場所は、ナショナルミュージアムにある Janice Wong。モダン中華という感じでしょうか。

I had lunch with a friend I hadn’t met for 3 months or so.  She let me choose a restaurant so I picked “Janice Wong” in the National Museum as I have seen many blog posts about the place.  My friend told me that the restaurant was talked about at a lunch with her friends the other day and she was curious.  The decor is very cool modern Chinese.






We both had their lunch set.


We chose Whisky Pork and Chicken something (like gyoza) from the starters and shared.  Both delicious.  I would have wanted more of them.





For the main I had Barley Noodles.  I read somewhere that it was like Dan Dan Noodle.  To me, it seemed far from Dan Dan Noodle, it seemed more like very light Tonkotsu (pork bone broth from Kyushu in Japan) noodles.  Not bad but it didn’t seem very special.



My friend had Somen with scallops, dried shrimps and fish roe.  I saw this in many people’s blogs so I recommended it to her.  She said it was very nice, the sort of taste Japanese love.  I loved the plate, it’s beautiful.



My friend chose Tiramisu for dessert.



I chose the chocolate one.  It was very sweet and rich – too sweet for me.  It was a little disappointing as this is a restaurant by a famous patissiere after all.  Both desserts were very large portions.



So, I wasn’t impressed with their dessert (perhaps a la carte would have been better) but enjoyed the starters very much.  I saw many blog posts about this restaurant and they all seem to have had the same dishes, so I don’t know how often they change their menu.  On their website, the lunch set is S$28(++) but it was S$35 (++) including tea/coffee.  It’s still reasonable for Singapore I think.  It is such a casual restaurant, I somehow don’t think it’s suitable for dinner for my husband and I, but nice for a casual lunch.
