Fresh Lime Juice - $2.00
I love my Lime Juice that is Sour Enough. At GoldLeaf, You can request for them to make it more sour for you on the 2nd cup if the first cup is not sour enough for you! :)

Complementary Appetizer
Full of Flavour, Beancurd Strips with Peanuts, Ikan Bilis, Pickles and Chilli Strips, fully infused with the homemade sauce.  This Appetizing Homemade Dish will sure make you want to have more! 
But please bear in mind that there are more food available later on!

Stir Fried Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk - $16.00 / $36.00
My Favourite Dish would have to include Seafood and Salted Egg and this dish has both! Fresh Prawns coated with a crispy layer of Salted Egg Yolk, Every bite is a crunch but I feel that the salted egg yolk flavour could be much stronger.

Cai Poh Omelette - $6.00 / $10.00
If you love Cai Poh Omelette, ORDER THE $10 Portion! It goes super well with Porridge and they are super generous with their Cai Poh at Goldleaf. Fluffy Eggs infused with all the goodness of the Cai Poh, It will sure make you have bowls after bowls of Porridge.

Goldleaf Special Fried Rice - $12.00 / $18.00
Simple looking fried rice but packed with alot of hidden treasures. This Goldleaf Special Fried Rice is infused with Ham, Egg, Spring Onions, Prawns and many more ingredients, Much like a Treasure Hunt.

Taiwan Lettuce (er cai, 鹅菜) - $8.00 / $14.00
For a Non-Veggie Eater like me, This is a Surprisingly YUMMY Dish that I can't stop eating.
The Vegetable is lightly Salted and is Crunchy in Every Bite (I am Serious). This had to be one of some of the best Vegetables I Have eaten so far.

3-Cup Chicken with Basil (三杯鸡) - $12.00 / $16.00
If you are a Huge Fan of 3-Cup Chicken, Goldleaf's Version may not make you go GaGa over it but it is worth a try. Tender pieces of chicken with flavour enhanced with the different spices.

Traditional Prawn Rolls - $8.00 / $12.00
I LOVE THIS, Especially the Crunchy bits of Chestnut infused in the prawn rolls, with the right proportion of Meat, Chestnuts, Onions and Prawns. I was the last one finishing up this Dish.

Goldleaf Braised Pork Belly - $10.00 / $16.00
I have a Love and Hate Relationship with Pork Belly. I love it when their meat is tender and the Fats melt in your mouth, But I don't like it when it piles on the calories for me. But oh well, Eat First, Think Later. 

Cod Fish with Specialty Sauce - $9/100g
MY LOVE FOR FISH WILL NEVER DIE! Haha, Goldleaf's Cod Fish is fresh, Crispy on the outside, Soft and Tender on the Inside. Accompanied with the special sauce that is just lacking in something which I can't really tell, was it the Ginger Flavour? or The Sweetness Flavour? Let me know if you feel the same after you tried it! :D

Fresh Cockles with Special - $8.00 / $14.00 
Well, Cockles are really fresh according to the other ladies on the table that day. It's either you Love it or Hate it. I did try 1 piece and I have to say that I hate it. I couldn't make it go pass my tongue.

Green Tea Jelly & Red Tea Jelly - $4.00 each
I prefer the Green Tea Jelly as it has a stronger "Tea" taste and Aroma which I like, as compared, the Red Tea Jelly was lacking in Flavour.

Herbal Jelly - $3.00
It's up to you whether you want to drizzle the honey over this dessert or not. I personally like it both ways. It's bitter but not too overpowering.

Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts - $4.00
Being a Huge Fan of Yam Paste, I was expecting a sweeter and a more aromatic Yam Paste, But nonetheless, Godleaf's Yam Paste is more suitable for people who doesn't like their desserts too sweet.
