Le Chasseur @ New Bridge Road

This humble eatery directly opposite the Central at Clark Quay along New Bridge Road with a French name and lots of food picture pasted on the wall is exactly a Chinese restaurant dishing out Teochew food.

The Salted Fish with Eggplant is a classic home cooked dish. The eggplant was cut into slices and cooked with minced meat and salted fish.

I really enjoyed the Watercress Soup and I can taste the passion in preparing the soup. Chinese herbs such as Red Dates and Bitter Apricot Seeds were added giving the soup a refreshing and sweetness taste.
Watercress Soup 4.5/5
The Butter Oatmeal Beancurd turned out to be an average dish except for the used of Oatmeal in the cooking. The two ingredients just didn't fuse together. I also felt that the dish was short of a dipping sauce to enhance it.

This is the highlight of the dinner that I am waiting for. The Crispy Pork Knuckle was huge! It was really amazing that the meat was still moist and tender. The skin was crispy and nice too. However I need to remove the layer of fats underneath the skin as it had some piggy smell which I did not enjoy. The special sauce that came with it also highlighted the meat.
