Ambassy Court Cafe

The Ambassy Court Cafe has always got mediocre food but you can always count on a table and some pretty fast service. Since we have RMB1400 worth of food coupon left we decided to give the place a visit.

I had the Hainan chicken rice (RMB42), and one may specify breast or thigh meat. As usual I went for breast but I was disappointed. The portion was so small! The rice was firm and nicely flavoured with chicken broth. The soup was not authentic at all, it's basically some kind of salty hot water with lettuce floating around. Luckily the dips somewhat redeemed the dish: I loved the red-ish looking chili ginger sauce.

The Singapore noodles (RMB28) looked too pale to begin with and not surprisingly plain tasting. 5 out of 10.
