We liked that the King Prawn Omelette had a generous quantity of prawns of a fairly large size. The omelette had a nice firm texture and the bean sprouts mixed throughout it provided a bit of crunch. The sauce topping the omelette imparted a delectable savoury flavour and slices of mushrooms completed the dish.

The slices of chicken in the Chicken with Cashew Nuts dish were tender and of a size to make eating the dish a satisfying experience. The various vegetables still retained a bit of bite and the sauce subtly enhanced their flavour. Completing the dish were roasted cashew nuts to provide a crunchy element to the dish.

Compared to the button mushrooms used in the Chicken with Cashew Nuts, the Mixed Vegetables featured mushrooms similar to those topping the King Prawn Omelette for a bit of a firmer texture. The taste of the sauce that the vegetables were cooked in was quite similar to the Chicken with Cashew Nuts. However, the savoury taste was not as pronounced.
