Gu Ma Jia restaurant, situated at 45 Tai Thong Crescent Sennett Estate, has the perfect setting for dinner out with the family. Gu Ma Jia, which means Auntie’s House, serves you the type of food you would expect from an aunt who cooks exceptionally well.
Thanks to AT Marketing, Food & PR Consultancy, I got to try most of their mouth-watering dishes in one sitting and I am looking forward to returning with the family as often as I can.
The welcome drink was the perfect start to dinner. Not too sweet or sour, a refreshing aperitif to get your palate ready for the rich, flavourful main courses.
I’m not a fish or curry lover but I couldn’t stop myself from numerous servings of the Assam Snapper. The meaty flakes of the Snapper go so well with the curry and steamed rice if you feel like it.
Move aside, Chili crab. Salted Egg Yolk crab is the way to go. You could munch on the shell without even getting to the meat and be satisfied. But as soon as you get a taste of the crabmeat coated with the salted egg yolk you will not stop till the plate is squeaky clean.
Don’t leave Gu Ma Jia without trying this classic Cantonese dish. From the Prawns to the noodles and the XO sauce, the best quality of ingredients come together so flawlessly that you won’t want to share.
‘The taste of childhood’ was the first thought that came to mind when I tried the Ubin Lala Bee Hoon. Gu Ma Jia has successfully maintained the authenticity of this dish, which tastes almost exactly like the best Lala noodles you could find across the island back in the day.
No dinner is complete without Kai Lan. The Yuan Yang Kai Lan has the right amount of crunch & crisp for a vegetable dish. The simple sauce and condiments give it the clean, fresh taste you relish.
I believe the picture says more than enough. The tender, tantalizing rich taste of the pork ribs complements the mild, natural flavor of the yam ring like cheese does on fries. Finger-licking good!
Taking a bite of the toothsome crunchy chicken cooked with shrimp paste made it impossible to stop at 1 or 5;) Yummy is all I have to say.
So nice and chewy, you forget that it’s all greens. A Vegetarian’s dream come true. Healthy, soothing and palatable. With all the rich dishes served, this traditional bean curd soup comforts the taste buds nicely.
The silky texture of this mango pudding dessert completes the scrumptious dinner wonderfully.
Needless to say, Gu Ma Jia is at the top of my list for a nice, wholesome meal with loved ones.
