Home-made Cuisine and homely portions @ 愛吃家常便飯

Wanted to try this place because of the product pictures, they had a set dinner but I did not want to try it because there were other items I wanted to try.
The lotus patties were slightly different from what I expected they were meat patty on top of a sliced lotus root, usually they are both chopped up and fried.

I wanted to find out more about the Portuguese patty 葡式窩餅釀肉鬆 because obviously I do not know what a 窩餅 is so I asked what it was, she asked me if I knew what a 窩餅 was.
If I knew what that was, then I would obviously guessed it was a 窩餅 stuffed with minced pork as stated on the menu.
But I didn’t know so she said it is similar to a 窩 baa whatever that is.

Anyway ordered:
Stir fried prawns infused with healthy green tea Japanese wasabi and Tender duck stew sauteed with preserved red bean curd, hoi sin sauce and broccoli floret topped with beer

Tender duck stew sauteed with preserved red bean curd, hoi sin sauce and broccoli florets topped with beer This was the best tasting dish because it had my favourite red bean curd flavouring and the beer that was poured in was dark black.
They chose this beer because it has a strong malt taste that comes out.
It sounded like "Bore DAh something" in Chinese so I am guessing they mean BODDINGTONS??
The broccoli was eaten last after it soaked up all the sauce and it was delicious.
The duck was also good but there were too many brittle bones.

綠茶青芥末炒蝦仁  $80
Stir fry prawns infused with healthy green tea Japanese wasabi
Stir fried prawns infused with healthy green tea Japanese wasabi
The English was slightly different to the Chinese description, the Chinese description mentioned mint leaves but the deep fried leaves tasted nothing like mint, anyway they tasted like deep fried spinach.
Later asked the staff and they said it was chuen jiu leaves which I have no idea what they were.
The wasabi taste was strong but I could not taste any green tea or see any green tea leaves, perhaps they used a green tea powder.
The sugar snap peas were fresh and destringed.
I felt that this dish was a modernised version of the Hangzhou prawns cooked with Loongjeng tealeaves.

秘製士多啤梨醬炸魚塊  $70
Crispy deep fry fish served with special strawberry sauce
However after looking at the real dish from Open Rice, the strawberry sauce looked like pink salad cream.
