Executive Cafe @ NTU

Executive Cafe isn't really a cafe in NTU, instead its a Chinese restaurant that offers rather responsible prices for the budget of the students within NTU. They have a range of dim sum, noodles, buffet and 8 course set meals all to cater to the different dinning experience.

Shredded Chicken and Century Egg Porridge

This porridge is the thick type, not the watery and runny kind. If you prefer the runny type this isn't the one for you. Even myself find this a bit too thick for my liking, if it were a bit more watered down, it would have been better. Flavour wise it's rather tasty. Though my taste bud could tell that the chef had cooked the chicken separated from the porridge and later added it in. I suspect that they just add the ingredients into the porridge as the order arrives, thus resulting in blend chicken not "absorbing" the nice stock in the porridge. I minus for that.

Prawn Dumplings

I must say these Prawn Dumpling are better then I expected. They're indeed better then the average Har Gao. However, I find them a bit dry and lacking the "juice" that gets trap in the translucent skins when you steam these previous gems. Still its worth to get these. One bamboo basket is not enough.

Char Siew Noodles

Roasted Duck Noodles
Roasted Chicken Noodles

Though they may score well in terms of dim sum, but according to my friends whom order the noodles, feel that their noodles were rather disappointed. They say that the noodles were oily and lack taste. Roast meats were too tough and not tender enough.

If you wanna save some money, you can politely tell the waitress that the peanuts, wet towers and refreshments would be unnecessary to you.

Maybe I would try the buffet (which is prices at $12.90 nett) next time.
