This time, we visited Xin Long Xing, which serves seafood-based and Tze Char dishes. They also do online deliveries, so for those who want a taste of their food but don’t want to leave the comfort of your home or office, you can have their food delivered to your doorstep.
This seafood white beehoon tasted good. Their noodles were flavourful, and was served with a generous amount of rich and addictive gravy. Priced at $6.80, this is the cheapest for their white beehoon menu.
New Menu – Chilli Crayfish Horfun
Chilli Crayfish Horfun at $19.80.
The dish looked rather plain at first sight, with just hor fun topped with gravy, vegetables, and crayfish. But don’t let that deter you – the gravy tasted like a combination of your usual hor fun gravy with chilli crab sauce. It wasn’t too spicy, and even had a slight tinge of sweetness to it.
Thinking the portion would be regular-sized, we topped up ours with more hor fun. Little did we expect was that the portion turned out to be so big, we couldn’t finish it!
The only complaints we had was that the hor fun portion was so much, they ended up clumping together. The gravy was not evenly distributed as well. In their defence though, it was us who requested for more hor fun, so if you’re ordering the regular portion, you may not encounter these.
The highlight of this dish was of course, the crayfish. Its size wasn’t too bad and it was clearly fresh because we easily removed the flesh from the shell in one stroke. Sadly it’s gone in just one bite.
New Branding – XLX Modern Chicken Rice
They claim to provide safe and high quality chicken which are lower in cholesterol, hormone-free, with original taste. Currently available on their menu are the Prawn Paste Chicken Rice,
XLX Crispy Fried Chicken Rice and Rendang Fried Chicken Rice.
We tried the Prawn Paste Chicken Rice because of the visually appealling photo on the signboard, and it costs under $6. The chicken portion was huge, with the tender chicken encased in a crispy shell that has been marinated by the prawn paste sauce.
They also gave some “archar”, but it tastes more like rojak instead because of the peanuts mixed into it.
The rice was soft and fragrant, and the small saucer of chilli definitely gave the dish a spicy kick. Chicken rice needs chilli sauce, right?
Xin Long Xing (新龍興) also serves chinese cuisine (tze char) with a wide array of dishes catered to families and big groups. We will be back to try their signature stone pot rice wine lala and prawns.
