Mid-Autumn Festival or also known as the Mooncake Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar. It is a popular tradition of mooncake eating, moon watching and shining lanterns. This year, the festival falls on 8th September 2014. Every year, Eastin have not missed celebrating this festival ever since the opening of Ee Chinese Cuisine opened its doors to valued guests.

Ee Chinese Cuisine is a pork-free Chinese restaurant and they specialises in authentic Cantonese delicacies. Among their signature dishes are dim sum, Peking duck, double-boiled soup and oven-baked lamb.
I would say that this is a plate of East meet West. Crunchy on the outside stuffed prawn dumpling is to be eaten delicately as there is soup on the inside. A mouthful and burstful crunchy dumpling. The Oyster is made like oven-baked cheese oyster using lemon cheese sauce over it. Just right and not too rich.
Rich and flavourful bowl of fish broth with succulent fish paste. I couldn’t help but to scoop every single drop of the soup.
Unlike your average chicken wing, this one is fat and succulent! Carefully deboned the wing and stuffing back into the skin with chicken paste and served with sweet and savoury of passion fruit sauce. Served at the side is the beautiful homemade pickled papaya.
Personally, I’m not a fan of bean curd so I don’t quite know how to appreciate this but I’m pretty sure it’s really good as I witness Sue Lynn happily eating them while I enjoyed the crispy enoki mushroom with the gravy.
Perfectly done glossy Cod Fish. A very luxurious plate of garlic fried rice I must say.
Clear and light dessert soup with 8 treasures in it. I like it as the sweetness didn’t overpower the broth. Goes well with mooncakes which sometimes may get too sweet to the palate.
Overall, I enjoy the dinner especially the fish broth and I look forward to a returning visit as I heard lots of good stuffs about their Peking Duck.
