MUI GARDEN (RICHMOND): BEST HAINAN CHICKEN & BEEF CURRY

Share on Google Plus

After posting a short review about Mui Garden on Zomato, I was craving their Beef Curry again, so decided to have it for dinner. Mui Garden is a Hong Kong style cafe that has different types of Chinese (more like Cantonese), Malaysian and Singaporean dishes. I used to get their Beef Curry only, but today I wanted to write a more detailed review so ordered some more. 
So for my b-i-g appetizer, I got their one of signature dishes Hainan Chicken (Whole $25, Half $13.50) - 4.0/5.0. It was my first time trying this type of chicken. Unlike its plain looking... it tasted amazingly good. The meat absorbed the sauce very well, and the meat was somewhat chewy and soft at the same time. Hainan chicken tastes even better with the dipping sauce - fresh ginger, scallions and vegetable oil as the base. 
Their Chicken Rice - 4.0/5.0 is pretty good too. It's basically the long grain rice cooked with chicken broth. It's just as aromatic as the chicken. 
Pan Fried Sliced Beef and Rice Noodle ($10) - 3.5/5.0 had more beef slices than the noodles! They are really generous when it comes to the portion. Not too oily and the noodle wasn't too soggy. The bean sprouts were still crunchy. Nicely cooked.
Finally, my favourite dish Beef Brisket Curry ($12.50)! - 3.5/5.0. I'd given this dish 4.0/5.0 but today their curry was too salty to the point I was thinking of putting some water in it... I wish no one tries their saltier version of the beef curry seriously. When it's properly cooked (usually they are!) it tastes amazing! It's very creamy and rich in flavours with huge chunks of beef briskets and potatoes. This type of curry (I guess Malaysian) doesn't have strong, pungent smells or spices so I can enjoy even more. This dish contains a lot of fatty coconut milk so you would get easily full. I finished a half still.
Overall, it was very satisfying lazy Saturday dinner. I almost danced while eating. I am going to finish the rest of the chicken if I get hungry tonight - I will be.

PROS
+ Their food tastes really good and seems very authentic too
+ A variety of food
+ When you crave either Malaysian, Cantonese or Singaporean dishes just go to Mui Garden
+ Very generous portion at cheap prices

CONS
- Beef curry today wasn't too good.. so sad!
