Yummy review at Gu Ma Jia 姑妈家

It has been sometime since Rayconniebaby did a food review and this time round, we have the strength of Ray papa, myself and Isa in the house!

Tucked in a cosy corner of Sennett Estate, you cannot miss out the prominent caricature of Gu Ma Jia (姑妈家) on their signboard.

entrance of Gu Ma Jia (姑妈家)at the junction of  Tai Thong Crescent.

Gu Ma Jia (姑妈家)is a casual Chinese restaurant where the owner is affectionately known as Gu Ma (‘aunt’ in Chinese), as she is the eldest among six siblings with numerous nephews and nieces. She is known to be a great cook who loves sharing delicious food with her family and friends. Gu Ma set up this restaurant in order to share delicious home-cooked food with her customers, sharing joy and family bonds over eating meals together.

This very apt display really caught my eye upon my arrival on the second floor of the restaurant.

Their menu.

8 Treasures Vegetables ($12/$18/$24)
The 8 vegetables that make up this exquisite dish are lotus, black fungus, carrot, celery, vegetarian abalone, lingzhi mushroom, cashew nuts and snap peas
You cannot say no to this dish, especially wnen it is topped with a yam ring.

Crispy Bean-Jal ($12/$18)
An honest opinion from non-brinjal lover: Ray papa said this dish was delish and stir fried to perfection!

Sambal Sotong ($16/$24/$30)
Good sotong dish is never easy to find but this dish was at such a exact taste that I wanted.

Assam Fish Head $28
This signature dish is a hot favourite and a must-try for every customer. Fish heads are freshly picked daily, guaranteeing freshness. The fish is tender and juicy, complemented by Gu Ma Jia’s exclusive spicy and sour Assam blend gravy.
The lingering taste leaves you to wanting for more.

Yuan Yang Kai Lan ($10/$15/$20) 
The half blanched, half fried vegetables making Isa wanting for more!

Kyoto Pork Ribs ($20) 
The fire brought out a very delectable charred taste of the ribs, definitely not something that I have tasted before anywhere.

Clay pot Chicken with Ginger & Sesame Oil ($15/$22/$28)
This dish really reminded me and only want me to look forward to my next confinement. The thought of it makes me go "yum!"

Oyster omelette ($12)
The tinge of sambal just completes the taste of this oyster omelette.

Crab Bee Hoon Soup
Seasonal Price

Fruity Enzyme Juice with rock melon, strawberries, 
kiwi and basil seeds ($3.80)

The presence of Basil Seeds in the Fruity Enzyme Juice which contains almost no calories, helps in weight reduction, gives the feeling of fullness, improve complexion, relieves constipation and lower blood sugar content. 

Wolfberries in Fruity Jelly Enzym is one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits around as it is supposed to contain more beta-carotene, a type of antioxidant, than carrots. Antioxidants may have anti-aging and cancer-fighting effects. It is rich in nutrients and helps to promote mental well-being and calmness. It also helps to reduce insomnia and improve vision.

"Gu Ma, We will be back soon!"
