I had my pre-Chinese New Year manicure and pedicure session at Mook & Jasmine yesterday evening after work. I didn’t get them done last Sunday as I thought that they would be too early. I called Mook & Jasmine in advance to secure an appointment but I ended up having to wait when I arrived as there was a customer before me.
I went for dinner at Yellow Cab located across Mook & Jasmine after I was done toiletries shopping at Amway. It was pretty quiet at Yellow Cab yesterday evening when I walked in but the place gradually filled with more patrons around 9PM. I guess the locals are used to having their dinner late?
As the branding says, Yellow Cab is an almost yellow themed restaurant. They have yellow walls and paintings. The table surface was made of stainless steel (I think) with their branding embossed at the corner. Honestly speaking, I find stainless steel table top is easier to maintain as compared to the other kinds of table top.
Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta | B$8.90
tender chicken strips, shiitake mushrooms and roasted peanuts sauteed in a spicy oriental sauce and garnished with spring onion
Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta is Yellow Cab own creation of pasta flavor. I was surprised at the portion when the plate was placed onto the table. The portion could feed two pax just fine in my opinion. I only managed to finish half of the pasta and brought the leftovers home.
Taste wise, it was well seasoned but tad sweet for my liking. The sauce tasted sweet and yet spicy at the same time. The roasted peanuts were a let down in my opinion. They weren’t roasted long enough for the natural taste to come out and I find them quite raw for my liking. The combination was well thought out in my opinion but it would be nicer if the peanuts were roasted slightly longer.
