Checked out the new Teahouse 1973 at 53 Sims Place recently; one of the latest additions to the Sims Place neighbourhood that is located along the same row of shops as Builders at Sims.

Kinda bummed by the limited selection of dishes in the menu that are unavailable for the day during our visit — there was a good variety of items being served up on the menu including a Penang Laksa that is only available on Thursdays and Saturdays (we made our visit on a Saturday during dinner service), but they were only serving up only 8 of the hot food items being listed on the menu.

Found ourselves opting for the Sous-Vide Pork Chop that turned out to be pretty decent, though nothing much to shout about. Served with the bone in, the pork chop did came in a decently-sized portion and drizzled in a brown sauce; the meat did come rather tender and juicy though it’s an item that should be enjoyed as it arrives the table — given the nature of the meat, the pork chop did turn out to become a little stiff and dry after being left there for a while, especially when we started to have the second piece. Thankfully, the brown sauce does attempt to alleviate the dryness somewhat; a buttery sauce almost akin to that served at Aston’s/Andes by Aston’s, infused with Rosemary for a slightly herb-y fragrance. Fries were decently fried; crisp on the exterior, whilst being well-salted, though I did wish they had provided a better tasting chili sauce instead — the one that it came with was a tad bland overall, which had us guessing whether was it ketchup or chili. The mixed greens on the side came crunchy — pretty refreshing to have in between the fries and the pork for how crunchy they were, and comes drizzled with a goma dressing for a roasty, sesame flavour; all that whilst also being adorned by a slice of canned pineapple and candied cherry that seems to be there more for the aesthetic value.

To be fair, perhaps the Sous-Vide Pork Chop was probably something that we should have skipped for the Sambal Prawn + Nasi Lemak instead; an item which carries more character over their Western cuisine offerings. That being said, Teahouse 1973 feels more like a neighbourhood hangout that residents in the area would enjoy for the vibe; probably not something which I would go all the way out for considering the Western cuisine items that we have had given how there are just simply other options that probably serve Western cuisine just as well as them, or even better around.
