Gu Ma Jia CNY dishes

We were invited to a Chinese New Year food tasting session at 姑妈家 Gu Ma Jia.
Yes, our reunion dinner and Cny dishes was in December 🙂

Healthy and nutritious, Gu Ma Jia recipes are known for less msg, less oil and salt.
But the home-cooked style food is always delicious.


First Lo Hei 捞魚生 for 2019.

Refreshing, crab stick and abalone. All Cny dishes need to come with a Lo Hei.
I am sure the mood would be even more festive nearer to Feb 2019 🙂

We love the Lobster Cold Platter ($138).

The platters come with fresh salad lobster, smoked duck, clams with onion. There is something for everyone.

The presentation whets our appetite, where should we start first.

Sweet and Sour Grouper with lychee.

Deep fried, crispy surface and tender meat. The lychee was an interesting mix. Crunchy dish, we could not stop munching.

Mrs comment that the sweet and sour sauce might have overpowered the fish taste.

Flaming Pork rib

This is one of the signature dish at Gu Ma Jia.  The entry sure was exciting, with flames burning hot!

Juicy and fragrant treat.

Assam Fish Head

This might be the most famous dish at Gu Ma jia. Spicy and Sour at the same time, we all love the assam gravy.

Although we were perspiring we just could not help but keep scooping the delightful gravy. I can savour this dish paired with white rice. Yummy.

Super fresh!

Enzyme drink to cool us down. This is a speciality healthy dessert from Gu Ma Jia, some of the benefits are :

-Relieve constipation and cleanses the digestive tract
-Detoxify and revitalize body cells
-Lower cholesterol level

The enzyme are extracted from fruits (combination of pears, papaya and apples), there is a tinge of vinegar in the concoction.

Each glass of goodness cost $5.80.

Yuan Yang Kai Lan

Hard to chew the stalk, just enjoy the “leaves”. Crunchy texture.

Claypot sesame oil chicken

Ideal for Mums (and Dads) undergoing maternity phase. The ginger and sesame broth really titillates our appetite.

I felt nourished, just by looking at the broth.
This is definitely my comfort food, and I had at least three bowls!

Herbal chicken, with a lot of ingredients.

Cooling 雪蛤

Finally desserts, not sure whether English name is Frog egg (xue3 ge2).
Refreshing and cooling, but kids did like the “jelly” texture.

They are missing the good stuffs.

Chinese New Year is just two months away. If you are shortlisting for reunion dinner venue, Gu Ma Jia might be a good recommendation.

Reunion dinner and Yu Sheng

[ Sponsored Review ]

We love Fish & Co’s platter meals. There is always something to make someone happy.
But we did not know about their Yu Sheng.

It should be good, since Boon Xin is pinching away at the crackers while everyone pose for camera.

When we were offered Fish & Co’s Platter of Wealth Yusheng, we took the bundle home for our Reunion dinner. At $34.80++, Fish & Co’s Yu Sheng comes with a generous 18 slices of Norwegian Sashimi Grade Salmon.

Yu Sheng can feed 8 to 10, and if this is still not enough, add $8.80 to double your Salmon portion 🙂

In our home, we have to 撈鱼生 (Lao Yu Sheng) quick, otherwise we will not have any crackers left for tossing. The kids are always pinching at the crackers!

Nai Nai’s opening ceremony, peppered with Auspicious tidings 🙂
黄金满地, 富贵花开, 身体健康!

We shall let you have one more glimpse of the pretty Yu Sheng, before we start “fishing” ! Hurry, last order will be on 14th Feb (Valentine’s day)

Never mind if we cannot remember all the auspicious words. We just wish each other Best of Health 🙂

Actually the kids were waiting to “mess” the plate of Yu Sheng !
To them, tossing of Yu Sheng is something Fun.

And Daddy will keep reminding them not to SPILL the Salmon overboard!

Our sumptuous Reunion Dinner, thank you Nai Nai 🙂

Thank you Fish & Co for the delicious Yu Sheng, we regret not ordering extra salmon, as 18 pieces is not really enough for our family 🙂
