Enjoy Reunion Dinner at Gu Ma Jia

GU Ma Jia Chinese Restaurant

GU Ma Jia Chinese Restaurant

Last week the kids and I were invited for a super early Chinese New Year reunion dinner food tasting.  We haven’t yet decided on how we will be celebrating  Chinese New Year come 2015 but it was was great to know that  having our CNY dinner there is a plausible option.

It took me quite a while to find the place as it was peak hour and I was not used to the one way roads in that area.  We were lucky to find a road side parking lot in and adjacent road and made it to the restaurant in time.

The kids had to wait quite awhile for the other invited guest to arrive. They occupied themselves drawing and coming up with their own stories to accompany the pictures.

We were served a mixture of the new dishes which were created for their 5th Anniversary and the upcoming Chinese  New Year.

Beehoon with Lala

Egg Beehoon with Lala

This dish was a real hit with the kids. They love the yummy bee hoon. In fact this was the ONLY dish that Tiger girl and Doggie boy ate besides the ice-cream that they were served for dessert.  ( My kids are great noodle fans)

Tofu Soup with peanuts.

Tofu Soup with peanuts. $28

The adults seated at the table were more adventurous and tried nearly all the dishes that were served.  I tried this tofu soup and it was really yummy.

Herbal Chicken Soup

Herbal Chicken Soup

I preferred drinking this chicken soup compared to the tofu soup. The herbs used in the soup wasn’t too overpowering and it tasted really rich.

Yam Ring Pork Ribs

Homemade Yam Ring with Kyoto Pork Ribs $30

This was the only dish that Monkey boy tried besides the bee hoon.  I loved it too as the Pork rib was really juicy and delectable.  The Pork Rib wasn’t hard and it was easy to chew.

Hot plate cuttlefish

Hot plate  satay cuttlefish $18

This was another dish which I enjoyed eating. The  slices of cuttlefish tasted really springy and chewy when I tasted them.  The satay sauce used in this dish gave it the correct amount of spiciness.

Drunken prawns

Drunken prawns

This dish looked really appetizing  and would certainly be a treat for any prawn lover. Unfortunately I’m not into prawns so  I gave this dish a miss.

Lotus Leaf Rice

Lotus Leaf Rice

This is a traditional dish that is served during Chinese New Year which has gluttonous rice within the lotus leaf.

XO Prawn Noodles

XO Prawn Noodles

This was another dished which I passed on due to the prawns. I asked Monkey boy if he would like to try the noodle soup but he too declined as it appeared to be a bit to spicy for his liking.

Claypot Pork in Sesame Oil

Claypot Pork in Sesame Oil

This dish was quite refreshing to me. The pork was really tender and fragrant. It reminded me of the dishes I had during confinement with Tiger girl 4 years ago.

In all it was a rather enjoyable dinner for us and there were certain dishes which I certainly wouldn’t mind ordering again the next time I visit Gu Mah Jia.
