Dian Xiao Er

Mr. Robotic is not a huge fan of duck meat. But on occasions where he has a strange craving for duck meat, he likes to go to the restaurant called Dian Xiao Er. The restaurant has a nice concept and theme for it tries to create a restaurant that is in the time of the the pugilistic world of Chinese Martial Arts, best represented by Jin Yong novels. Some of the waiters and waitresses are even dress up in the costumes of a Dian Xiao Er.

Gimmicky? Yes. But that is what help it to stand out among all the restaurants out there in Singapore.
Roasted Duck with 10 Wonder Herbs. A tad disappointed for the taste is not as gratifying as Mr. Robotic remembered it. The "supposedly" herbs are not in sight.
Plain Pea Sprouts. Simple but one of Mr. Robotic's favorite vegetables.

Some Fried Doufu thingy. Do not choose this item. Besides the slightly appealing presentation of the dish, there is nothing good to say about this dish.

While Mr. Robotic acknowledges the strong branding concept behind this restaurant, Mr. Robotic hopes that the standards of the food is still given priority as that is what customers are after.
