Gu Ma Jia celebrates 5th Anniversary with the launch of new dishes

27 November 2014 marked the 5th anniversary for  姑妈家 (Gu Ma Jia), which is famous for their freshest selection of ingredients that are hand picked and quality checked by Gu Ma. Most importantly, these delectable home-cooked dishes have no added MSG and less oil was used, working align with the restaurant's take on serving authentic home-cooked food.

We were served with Gu Ma Jia's homemade fruity enzyme drink shortly upon our arrival while waiting for the food tasting session to commence. If you can take slightly sourish drinks, you might love the enzyme drink that comes along with some jelly bits.

Fruity Enzyme Dink, $4.80

To celebrate the 5th Anniversary,  姑妈家 (Gu Ma Jia) has launched some new dishes. If you have read my review from the previous food tasting session, the sweet and savoury Kyoto Pork Ribs was a hit with the old and young !

This time, the new dish is served with a combination with their handmade yam ring which is crispy on the outside, creamy and soft on the inside. It's the best of both worlds for the yam ring lovers, this is not to be missed ! The duo complements each other well.

Homemade Yam Ring with Kyoto Pork Ribs, $30

Typical Ubin Lala Bee Hoon, is light yet tasty. The freshness of the fresh clams brought out the sweetness of the broth.

Ubin Lala Bee Hoon - $18

Gu Ma grew up with this traditional dish, a comfort food for all. It took 6 hours to boil and bring out the wholesome goodness of the soup with Chinese ham, salted fish head, pork ribs, peanuts and fresh bean curd.

Gu Ma Traditional Beancurd Soup - $28

XO prawn noodles, you need not add any other seasoning like curry powder to spice it up. If you are dining there, this is one dish that is not be missed as well. Do away with the white rice and go for this ! The noodles were cooked using their homemade superior XO sauce, plus the sweetness of the prawn meat, I guaranteed that you will not stop at just one serving. I wiped out my bowl cleaned, including the soup.

XO Sauce Prawn Noodles - $28

I love anything that is cooked with salted egg yolk and not to mention CRABS ! That is on my #1 top favourite ! You might caught me licking off the sauce from the shells and fingers. It's finger licking good and I love how the meat is not sticking to the shells, in terms of freshness, I have no doubts about it.

Salted Egg Yolk Crab (Seasonal Price)

Kids love this and I love this too ! The joints were crispy and tasty on the outside yet tender on the inside. Xav actually requested for more. I'm surprised as he hardly asked for a second serving.

Shrimp Paste Chicken Mid Joint - $15
Crispy Brinjal - $12/ $18
Yuan Yang Kai Lan - $12/ $18/ $24

To complete the dinner, desserts were served. Check them out.

Gu Ma's Dessert - $4

Black Glutinous Rice which is also known as Pulau Hitam, this warm dessert comes with a scoop of ice cream and it was not overly sweet. Pardon the melted ice cream. =P

Black Glutinous Rice with Ice Cream - $3.80

Yes I was filled to the brim but it did not hindered me from trying out the desserts.  Refreshing mango pudding but chawannmushi lookalike ?
Mango Pudding (Not on menu yet)

Xav tried to burst the mango pops.

Fruit Enzyme Jelly is a must try but warning ahead, leave some space before you wolfed down this dessert. I was really, really full after finishing this serving. Pretty refreshing when you eat it chill.

Fruity Enzyme Jelly - $5.80
