By its name, this restaurant "Si Fang Cai or Hong Kong Home Cuisine" has already told us what it specialises in. Si Fang Cai is located within Soi Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra 24 or Soi Sathu Pradit 19 or locally known as Soi Wat Pho Man at Nara Place. It of course offers decent Cantonese style Chinese food. When I say decent, I mean it is enjoyable but not that great. It is a restaurant that can be enjoyable for any day but not the one to be looking forward to.

The place is not big, just a block of commercial building. There are probably around 10 tables. Typically I do not expect much on the service side from local Chinese restaurants, however, this one is better than expected. The decoration is kept in Chinese style. What surprise me was the way they hide toilettes; it looks like a panel of drawers but it actually is toilette.

We had ordered 2 kinds of tofu dishes. The first one was cold bean curd with century egg - เต้าหู้ไข่เยี่ยวม้า (6/10).  The other one was tofu in Sze Chuan style - เต้าหู้ผัดสไตล์เสฉวน (5/10). Both were ok. Cold bean curd with century egg was basic but still delightful. Tofu in Sze Chuan style was not so hot but still maintained richness of taste.

To have Cantonese food, how could I miss roast dishes. This time we had half roasted goose - ห่านย่างครึ่งตัว (5/10) and crispy roasted pork - หมูกรอบ (7/10). I did enjoy the crispy roasted pork a lot: so crisp on the skin and soft inside. Roasted goose was not that amazing but still yummy. If it could be more tender, this would be a highlight dish as the overall taste was good already except texture.

We were recommended by a staff to try steamed egg white with tiger prawn - กุ้งนึ่งไข่ขาวกับมันปู (4/10). Indeed, I did not hesitate to order so. However, it was not so great as expected. It was just a basic steamed egg white topped fatty crab sauce and 4 small tiger prawns. Anyway, at least it was not that bad.

I then spotted on an advertised card on the table that they also do serve egg yolk bun - ซาลาเปาไส้ไหล (4/10). So, why not. Egg yolk bun has been so famous in Bangkok during the past year, especially, the one at Chef Man @ Eastin Hotel. Well, this one was ok to eat and to enjoy but not up to standard of Chef Man. It was too sweet to my liking in fact. Anyway, there is not 3 months queue here. (^.^)
