[Media Invite] Wan He Lou 萬合樓 @ 65 Maude Road (Jalan Besar)

If you are at Maude Road area during any non-PH weekday lunch time, do pop by Wan He Lou to enjoy their set lunches, reasonably priced at $12.80. Comfortable air-conditioned dining, full service from its friendly staff and for that price, you'll get a main course with a small appetiser, a tall drink and a dessert.


Currently, there are three options to choose from; Black Truffle Pork Chop Rice, Seafood Pasta with Whole Abalone and Langoustine Bee Hoon.

The Black Truffle Pork Chop rice was my favourite. The meat was well marinated and so tasty. Best eaten with rice. The deep fried spring roll appetiser was good and the accompanying chili sauce drizzled on it was powerful. Too bad we couldn't have more of that powerful spicy sweet chili sauce! The ice-lemon tea was such a tall drink that I doubt anyone would feel thirsty after. The dessert was either guava jelly or passion fruit jelly. The flavour was really intense but it could do with less sweet.

But did you know that Wan He Lou has an award winning Chef who is known for his Lobster Porridge? Chef Lau Siaw Dee's Signature Lobster Porridge had won the top prize at a culinary event which was part of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Now, we get to have a taste of it at Wan He Lou.

The porridge is done in Teochew style, where one could still see the grains. The rice managed to absorb the essence of the broth and such, every spoonful of the porridge was flavourful.

The restaurant also had a crowd's favourite snack, in the form of Crispy Lotus with Salted Egg. This is an appetiser which one could order while waiting for the mains. Lotus root sliced so thinly and coated with the deliciously wicked salted egg yolk. Quite shiok. Just wished that they have a spicy version of this.

Wan He Lou does its meat dishes pretty well. The Pan Fried Kurobuta Pork was tasty, and the sticky sweet savoury glaze was finger licking good. Goes well with a bowl of white rice.

You must-must try the Coconut Pudding with Ice Cream. It was so good! Imagine a baby coconut where one digs through a large scoop of coconut ice-cream to find a deliciously soft coconut pudding. And, when you scraped the walls of the coconut, those tender slices of flesh drops onto the pudding for that added coconut flavour. It now has a special spot in my heart (or belly).
