Food Review: Dai Lou Canto Restaurant Punggol Marina Country Club

Journey to the North to try out the newly opened Canto restaurant at Punggol Marina Country Club. It was my second visit to the country club and I love the ambience of this place because it offers a stunning view of the sea.

Dai Lou is a 90s Canto theme inspired Singapore restaurant bringing together zichar & fun drinking place. The atmosphere is perfect for guests to relax and have a good meal after spending the day in the bustling city. 

When I first heard of Dai Lou, I thought the name was very interesting. Dai Lou (大佬) means Big Brother in Cantonese. It makes me wonder what interesting dish name will Dai Lou has.

You can choose indoor or alfresco dining. 
We had the indoor dining.

Here are the food that we have tried:

Honey Milk Pork Cubes

The pork cubes were well marinated with honey milk, giving it a sweet and savoury taste that satisfied our taste buds. Every cube tasted so delicious and perfect. We asked around which is their favourite dish they have tried tonight and this dish was many of us favourite.

XO Crab Beehoon
$47 per crab

Wow, I love this XO crab beehoon the most. The XO soup was bursting with flavours with the generous ingredients in it plus the XO crab, it was definitely a hearty affair that give us a kick but not to the extreme of being drunk. 

Dai Lou's Money Bag - Salted Egg + Black Pepper Sauce

$0.60 each

Crab is definitely one of our favourite seafood dish, something we would order every time we go seafood restaurant. Though eating crab can get really messy, it will leave us finger licking good. I especially love it when we soaked the mantou in the gravy to absorb the goodness of salted egg and black pepper. I love the dominant flavour of the salted egg, it simply taste so delicious.

Knuckle Duster (Thai Style Pork Knuckles)

The Thai style pork knuckles carried a hot taste of chili and mild sweetness that catered to the taste buds of Singaporeans. The spicy level was no job, it gave a hot sensation after finishing the mouthful and you would want to reach for your drinks after that. For people who loves spicy food, this is the dish for you.

Thanks Dai Lou Canto Restaurant for hosting us for the dinner. Do pop by to Dai Lou to try out their food.
