A visiting Uncle from California is in town, so being the traditional Chinese family that we are, the first dinner will always be in a Chinese restaurant. Mr. SunMoon has always been one of my Dad's favorites, and with the location just a mere 5 minute drive, it's a no-brainer.
What we had:
Fish Lip Soup. Being one of the classic soups, I guess you can say that I've tried about a hundred variations of this particular soup. I like that SunMoon did not scrimp on their ingredients unlike other watered-down versions I had. The soup was not too salty and was full on flavor.
Pig's Kidney. Uh... I passed on this one. The smell was too intense for my taste.
Fried Squid. The squid, on the other hand, is something I would never ever pass up. Soft with just the right amount of bite.
Fried rice is just fried rice, right? Wrong. Sunmoon's fried rice is not your average fried rice. Having a spoonful will give you soft rice with bits of ham and chinese sausage. Yum.
The kikiam has been a childhood favorite and will remain as such even after many, many years into adulthood.
Was not too impressed with this one. I've tried better ones (more on that in my upcoming posts!)
The sea cucumber tasted... normal. Nothing to rant or rave here.
Did not try this either. Not a fan of too many vegetables (who is, right? yes, that's me trying to convince myself that not liking vegetables is perfectly normal. hands up if you're with me!)
Now we go to the main reason why we chose to eat in SunMoon:
This big bag boy weighs 1.9 kgs.
See how big it is? That's my thumb next to it for comparison. And how does it taste? It took me no time to sink my teeth into its big, juicy, tender and sweet meat. Amazing, I tell you.
So overall, how does SunMoon rate? I'd give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
