San Diann, Clara and I met up for an early breakfast last Sunday morning. San Diann invited both Clara and I to try out this newly opened Ah Tong couple of weeks ago on the day of soft opening but I could not make it as I got a last minute work call. So, we took a rain check and met up last Sunday instead.
We met at 9:00a.m. in the morning. Early, huh? I was surprised that both of them were okay with meeting so early as majority of my friends could not make it for breakfast before 10:00a.m. in the morning. I like going out early in the morning so that I can get things done earlier. There was once I met up with my colleagues for breakfast before 8:00a.m. on a Sunday morning couple of months ago.
Without further ado, let me show you what I had at Ah Tong last Sunday morning.
鱼滑 Efu | B$5
It took me a long time to decide what to have for breakfast. I wanted to try Salmon but I think it was kinda heavy and expensive for breakfast. So, I settled with the most basic one – 鱼滑. I was shocked when I saw the size of bowl presented in front of me during serving.
My bowl of 鱼滑 came with generous portion of deep fried homemade fish cakes, deep fried tofu, salted vegetables and tomatoes. As for the noodle, you could choose in between yellow noodle or rice vermicelli. I chose the latter. As for the soup, you could choose between clear or milky base. The waitress highly recommended us the milky base as it was their chef’s specialty.
The soup was good in my opinion but I’ll like it more if it is more sour than it is now. The homemade fish cakes were good! It was soft, smooth and silky. Deep fried tofu was good too but tasted a bit sourish to me, probably due to the soup base. Rice vermicelli portion was more than generous, which I only managed to finish half.
All in all, I think this was a good bowl of 鱼滑 and I do not mind returning next time. I think I will bring my family to try next time. Additionally, Ah Tong also serves freshly baked buns like Buttermilk, Red Bean, Sausage Rolls and Egg Tarts in the morning. Buns are sold at B$0.50 while egg tarts are B$0.80 each.
Have you tried Ah Tong and what do you think?
