Update Jun 21, 2012: This restaurant is now closed.
It has been a while since we last visited Sensus. Business has picked up since we’ve last been here. We had to wait about 10mins for seat. However, the head waitress here was very nice. She kept coming to reassure us that we’ll have a table soon.
So we finally did. Boyfriend always orders the same #19 (the salt and pepper chicken) here. I saw that aside from the set menu, they also had a “Spring Menu” (yes…it’s almost the end of Summer and they still have their Spring menu….that’s chinese restaurants for you~!).
The thing that caught my eye was the 3 noodle dishes with the smiley faces. I plan to try all 3 😀
This time, I tried the Special Crab Paste w/ Crushed Tomato w/ Rice Vermicelli in Soup.
And here it is! Mind you it was more like sliced tomatoes than crushed tomatoes but it was still very good. I like the unusual condiments they’ve added, namely the sliced daikon and egg-tofu.
Once I push that mountain of daikon off, I was met with loads of the “crab paste” stuff. It was mixed in with some tiny dried shrimp which gave is a nice texture. It tasted really good by the way. The broth was clear and tasty. The use of vermicelli diminishes any chance of feeling over-stuffed by the crab paste.
I really enjoyed this, if you couldn’t already tell. I really like it when restaurants come up with new, refreshing, innovative dishes that set them apart from the typical offerings of restaurants of this type. So like I said, I will definitely come back to try the others.
