Rolling Wok is fully airconditioned a Tze Char Restaurant located in NUS. It's located in a pretty obscure part of NUS, and you'll probably have problem getting to it unless you know NUS layout very well, or you take a taxi, or have a very good navigator in your car. Although I have been studying in NUS for 4 years, I never knew it existed till my friend (who has lecturer parents) told me that such a place existed inside NUS.
The Mushroom Bean Curd is on my definite must-try list. It's $6 for a delightfully crispy and wobbly egg tofu. The tofu itself is very delicious, with a crispy layer of golden brown skin enclosing a smooth silky interior.Other restaurants are selling a lesser than average tasting one for double the price. It's about palm sized (for normal sized palms), but I'm pretty sure I could finish one by myself since it's so yummy!
The San Bei Ji (Three Cups Chicken, 三杯鸡) which was $6.90. The sauce went very well with the tender chicken. There's a hint of hua tiao jiu (chinese cooking wine) and it's not overly salty. Do try this dish if you go to Rolling Wok, it comes in a claypot and is a good sized portion.
Chicken Broth with Bamboo ($5.90)
It's not very spectacular. I don't think I'll have this again. It has crab meat, a bit of bamboo and some fungus.
Curry Chicken $4.90
Nothing very fantastic - 3 pieces of chicken and potatoes in normalish curry sauce. Pretty generic tasting.
Special Sauce Salmon($6.90)
I didn't really like this dish cos I found the salmon too dry, and there was too much sauce covering the fish. I think this must be one of the Kee's Sauce since it's the sauce that Rolling Wok uses. I found it too salty too.
Rice costs $0.80 and there is no service charge (but there's 7% GST). I suppose it's name is Rolling Wok cos their waiter wears roller blades... Ice water is free of charge and self service.
For people in the area, Rolling Wok is a great choice for a peaceful lunch (away from all the terrible canteen queues). The tofu and three cup chicken warrent another visit, but it's not the kind of place that you'll go out of your way to try.
