Nanbantei (At China Point)

夫は今朝ハーフマラソンを走って疲れていて夕食を作る気にならなかったようで、夕食は南蛮亭に行ってきました。いつもは近くのファーイーストプラザにのお店に行きますが、思いついた時には満席だったので初めてチャイナポイントのお店に行きました。新しくてきれいですがショッピングモールの中のレストラン特有の落ち着かなさがありましたし、豚のしそ巻きが豚くさくて食べられなかったり、銀杏が冷凍焼けしたもの独特の臭みがあったりで、ファーイーストプラザの方が美味しいと思いました。多分材料は同じだと思うでたまたまだったのかもしれませんし、焼き足りない感じがしたのでそのせいかもしれませんし、本当のところはわかりません。

As my husband was too tired to cook dinner after running a half marathon this morning, he suggested we go to Nanbantei for dinner.  We usually go to the one in Far East Plaza as it’s not far from us, but it was already fully booked when we thought about going so we went to their China Point outlet.  It’s in a shopping mall and has no door so it has that particular atmosphere most restaurants in shopping malls have and there were a few things that I didn’t like – the shisomaki was strongly gamy, I couldn’t eat it, and ginko nuts had that particular smell of food frozen too long.  I guess their ingredients are the same in both of the restaurants so maybe it just happened that way today, or it can also be because they don’t grill enough (I thought some of them needed longer grilling).  We liked the Far East Plaza outlet better anyway.

餃子、トマト巻き、オクラ巻き、紫蘇巻き、銀杏、つくね、豚バラの柚子胡椒焼き、ガーリックライス、ぜんざい、ビール(小瓶?)3本で98ドル。やっぱり、安い!

We had Gyoza, Tomato-maki (pork rolled around petit tomato), Shisomaki (pork with shiso), ginko nut, minced chicken ball, Pork belly with Yuzu Kosho, garlic rice, Zenzai (Adzuki bean dessert), 3 small bottles of beer – S$98, every inexpensive.
