Mui Garden - Main St.
I ate a frozen green thai curry today and it wasn't half bad. See: http://www.cpauthenticasia.com/green-thai-chicken-curry-with-jasmine-rice.htm I'm definitely not "too good" for frozen food (frozen meals FTW!) Yes, I'm a food blogger and I just admitted to liking microwavable meals.
My dad convinced me to try it. He's been raving about it for weeks! Apparently he got it on sale for $2 a pop, at T&T. I looked at the ingredients and I was actually pretty impressed (usually frozen meals are chock full of additives and artificial flavours!)
I think I'm going to stock up. It's not gourmet, but hey, it's edible!! (Plus I rarely go out these days.)
The curry I ate today made me reminisce about the glorious curry I had at Mui Garden a few weeks ago!! Their curry beef brisket is famous for a reason!
When I first came across Mui Garden a few years ago, I was confused as to what Mui Garden actually "was." To the undiscerning eye, Mui Garden looks like your run of the mill Chinese restaurant. Mui Garden is actually a HK Cafe/Cantonese restaurant heavily influenced by Malaysian and South Asian cuisine (even more so than your average HK Cafe.) As evidenced by their signature dishes: coconut milk based curry, roti, satay and hainanese chicken! They have three locations: this one on Main St, one in Richmond, and another one on Victoria Drive!

Signature Curry Beef Brisket (Large Size)
Talk about yum!! This dish never disappoints. Mui Garden is one of my favourite places to get Cantonese style curry. Large, soft, pieces of brisket, swimming in a pool of thick, coconut-y broth. They also throw in some potatoes, which makes it extra filling!! Ask for the large (dinner size!)
Blanched Choy Sum
I was pleasantly surprised by the large portion size! The choy sum itself was okay, it tasted a little old. But other than that, it was fine!
The curry also came with a generous helping of rice (which was surprisingly enough for me!)
