Birthday Lunch @ Restaurant Xiang Man Lou

This post has been long overdue...we held two of our cg members ( Ron and Sandra ) birthday celebration last month. This time the venue was at Restaurant Xiang Man Lou, a place where they served Sichuan dishes...hot, oily and spicy dishes .  This restaurant is just opposite Festival Walk (opp Sushi Zento )  I am speaking for myself, the food is not bad for a change.....something different from the other chinese restaurants.  The cooking is authentic sichuan cooking...oily , spicy with lots of different peppercorns used in most of their dishes.  I kinda like the flavor and it agrees with my gastro :)   Have a peep at what was ordered for the birthday lunch :)  Drool as much as you like...I would fine you for that :p

I like this hot spicy cucumber side dish and 
I even googled for the recipe online and found one good one.  
Will post up this hot spicy cucumber salad on my next post...stay tuned for it.

wood fungus sides with lots of  pickled garlic,pickled hot chilli and vinegar

special beef sides...love this dish to bits
if not for the cholesterol factor, I would have tucked in more :p

this is another appetising seaweed and vermicelli salad
packed with lots of chopped garlic, chillies and sweet black vinegar

eggplant and long beans stir fry...delicious but a bit salty for me

this is the most pricey dish for the day.....the expensive Garoupa ( lou foo pan )
cooked in hot spicy oil...you eat only the fish...coz the whole pot consist of hot spicy oil but
I would say this is the best dish...very flavorful...lots of sichuan peppercorns and dried chillies

and this the awesome prawn dish ...deep fried prawns with 
lots of spice ingredients..
we had a great time digging out and trying to guess 
what are the crispy spicy ingredients in this dish...
they have peppercorns, dried seaweed, peanuts and maybe
mint leaves....hahaha but this is definitely a MUST ORDER  dish

steamed free range chicken...flavorful...I guess they have steamed 
and soaked in rice wine...delectable comes with ginger dippings

I forgot the address of this restaurant
it is opposite Sushi Zento , Festival Walk

Have a great day.! :)

    1. hahaha you must try the fish and the prawns...delish ! Take your kids there :)

  2. I love Szechuan food! Too bad Carlos and Diana are not fan of the numbness and spiciness of the dishes so we hardly had any. Next time try out their dry fry chicken with loads of dry chilies if they have it in their menu.

    1. Me too...I love the peppercorns flavor in their dishes. Oh ..I must try their dry fry chicken then :)

  3. My my my, oily but yummy, especially that eggplant and long beans dish which I think I would like. The only non-oily dish would be the steamed chicken, right?

    1. Veronica...yea most Sichuan dishes are oily and spicy hot but they do taste good though...I do indulge in not so healthy food at times like this birthday occasion :p
