Mui Garden - Main St.

  I ate a frozen green thai curry today and it wasn't half bad. See:  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)
4.5/5 stars

  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
3/5 stars

  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!)
