Mum and I went up to Su Life for dinner one night (we had tried to go to Pu Kwong but they were unexectedly closed when we got there). I will be upfront, this visit to Su Life was a bit of a disaster. They took our food to another table (who accepted it!), and we were waiting for ages until we actually got our food, and even then we never got out beloved dumplings. It was definitely an off night there. But here is what we ate.
Su Life does a vegan Taro Soy Milk Bubble Tea. The great Kuan Yin, now sadly closed, used to do this and I fell in love with it. It is like drinking cookies! This one wasn't as good as the Kuan Yin one, and they forgot to put the pearls in, but it was still fun.
I love ordering radish (or turnip or lobok or yam) wherever I go. This was the one entree (appetiser for my US friends) that did make it to us.
I ordered the Sizzling Tofu with Black Pepper Sauce. I used to get this back when Su Life was Huo Fo in the old location, and it was great. Unfortunately the sauce is now not what is was. It was OK, but not anywhere near as tasty as in the past.
Mum ordered Salt and Pepper Eggplant, after loving the S&P eggplant at Pu Kwong a few weeks before. Unfortunately this was not the same. The eggplant was cut like fries and then just deep-fried like that, so while it was OK for the first bit it went oily and mushy quickly.
So I am afraid to say this visit was a bit of a miss. But I still love Su Life because I have a standard takeaway order that we get from there sometimes when I am too tired to cook. As it happens, the next night we got takeaway! So here is our standard order. Two serves of their delicious pan-fried dumplings, Spicy Crispy Chicken for Mum (and for me to snack on a bit as well), Three Cups Tofu in Ginger Herbal Sauce for me (I just love it... tofu and veggies and mushrooms and so much yummy sauce) and rice. My dad normally orders something different each time, and this time he got the Three Treasures Bendon box. The only thing if you want to takeaway is we have found it best to go there and order, if you order over the phone you will often end up with something different.
