For an unassuming Chinese restaurant, this place is constantly packed, especially during the weekends. You either go very early or very late or end up waiting for a long time for an empty table. But once you got a seat and order, the food arrives quickly (considering the big crowd).
I always go here to have a decadent dinner with my folks. One of the most ordered dish is the pork trotters. You can have it whole or halved. The skin is crispy while the meat remains juicy and tender. You can choose to eat it just like that or dipped with the sauce. The sauce is somewhat similar to the German-style pork trotters but richer and more sour. As you can see, before I could take pictures, someone has already started digging in.
Another signature dish is the Thai-style prawns and calamari. Served on a hot plate, this dish is awesome because of its sauce. For the life of me, I couldn't quite figure out the ingredients used and neither could the people who have tried it with me. There is something magical in it. Plus, the seafood was really fresh.
You might say curry fish isn't much different in taste and style of cooking. This pot of goodness doesn't disappoint as the 'ikan pari' is perfectly cooked with long beans, brinjals, lady fingers and 'tau foo pok'. I liked it because it didn't feel like the taste was drowning in curry powder nor overwhelmed by spices. It had the right balance.
Lastly to offset the decadent meal choices, we had a simple stir fried sweet potato leaves. Like most places, it was fragrant with the right amount of garlic, a dash of Chinese wine and a good deal of 'wok hei'. There were five of us and with extra rice and a pot of tea, the bill came up to a little over RM100.
