Restoran Mohd Chan - Kota Kemuning (Shah Alam)

Restoran Mohd Chan. Been around for some time, albeit I can't exactly say since when, but I sure have noticed Restoran Mohd Chan a couple of times while driving pass the row of shops across the main road. Recently, just two weeks back, we had our first dinner dining experience in Restaurant Mohd Chan on this Sunday. A spacious corner lot "Chinese-Halal" restaurant, nice ambiance, with option for dining inside or outside, should you sit outside, you better keep an eye on the stray cats. Quite a nuisance actually if you are not a cat lover, but I guess nothing much can be done, though we did notice some customers generously feeding them, not realising that stray cats bring with them fleas and germs. Aside to the stray cats, but they sure will try their utmost in lingering under your table, you should also be wary of the flying happily blood suckers. Mosquitoes. So, to avoid both of these uninvited guests, I suppose inside air-conditioned dining area is clearly more conducive. We on the other hand sat outside because we didn't want to crowd among the groups of, mostly Malay customers.  

As soon as we sat, at the glimpse of our eyes, we were attended to. Huge selection, you name it, you will see it listed on the menu. We debated on what we should call for, we were not keen on side dishes alongside rice, so, the practically was calling for Steamed Dim Sum, Loh Mee, Nasi Goreng Seafood, Ice Sirap Bandung Cincau and Hot Milo Kosong.

In a jiffy, dim sum came cruising, accompanied alongside chilli sauce atop a brown sauce. Basically a finger food or appetizer, fresh prawns filled inside wanton skin, eaten after dipping over the sweet-spicy sauce, dim sum was not a let down. Nope, couldn't be faulted.
Loh Mee almost over-spilling with thick yellow noodles, various types of seafood, veggies, topped with fried shallots and in a thick broth, wasn't too bad either. However, like a mumbo-jumbo, anything goes inside dish, a hearty portion, paired with the same chilli sauce, honestly, to tell you the truth, I was not impressed. I didn't like it. I didn't like the fact that there were many ingredients going on inside, that by far, was a put-off. Taste-wise, wasn't a winner as well. Loh Mee perhaps should be regarded as value for money, for me, bottom line, I didn't fancy it.  

On the contrary, sirap bandung cincau was an appreciated drink. Slightly over-sweet, however, I do pleasure into such a drink every now and then, this one went down well on my taste-buds while I was tucking into loh mee.   
Nasi goreng seafood comparatively was another similar style to loh mee. All sorts of seafood and veggies, fried alongside rice, egg and soy sauce, paired with birds eye chillies in soy sauce, mind you, my other half-half was not utterly impressed. Nevertheless, he did comment that its a decent meal, washed down with Milo kosong, which by the way is Milo in hot water.  

Will we return to Restoran Mohd Chan again? Changes are slim because food didn't really win our happiness. Just an average meal. Of course, portions must be hailed, RM26.00 is affordable, yet, I think we will still say bye-bye to Restoran Mohd Chan.      
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is utterly my pride and joy. Thank you.
