Restoran Ho Pang Yao - Semenyih

We were in Semenyih one evening around dinner time. We wanted to dine at Semenyih 52 but decided to try out a new place that a friend recommended -好朋友海鲜餐厅 (Ho Pang Yao seafood restaurant) - which was just about 50 meters away from Semenyin 52.

Bruce Lee Steamed Tilapia. RM43. A little too spicy for my liking but my friends loved it.

Stir Fried Sotong with Pineapple. RM25

I didn't like this.

Tofu, RM10

This one was just okay. Nice but nothing special.

Gao Zai Kuat (狗仔骨). RM20. Don't worry, it was pork, not dog meat LOL.
R0023471 copy
Nice, with mild flavor, nothing too strong except the star anise.

The bill came to RM120, which included hot water, tea and steamed rice. That's for 5 pax.

Langat Seafood & Beer Garden

I have heard about Langat Seafood and Beer Garden a few times and finally have a chance to dine there a few days ago.

What we ordered:

Claypot tilapia. Nice and fresh (of course!). No muddy smell either. However, the fish was quite fat!
2013-09-05 18.40.38 copy

Claypot pork with potatoes in it. Lovely but I wished the pork were slightly leaner!
2013-09-05 18.40.50 copy

Sambal pucuk paku. Okay but the shoots were a little tough.
2013-09-05 18.37.44 copy

Fu Yong Egg / Omelet. Totally unimpressive. Very dry too.
2013-09-05 18.37.24 copy

Nice view of the fish ponds. There were a few more to the right.

Total damage: RM119.20, inclusive of a pot of hot Chinese Tea (RM5.50) , ice cubes, and 5 plates of rice (RM6.00), serviette (RM1.20) . That came to about RM30 per pax for four adults. Pricey IMO.

Kwai Lim Dim Sum - Jinjang

Another run-of-the-mill dim sum place. This one is in Jinjang Utara. I went to the post office there because I had to mail a parcel overseas.

As usual, overly tasty because the food was loaded with MSG. You could tell it tasted unnaturally flavorful as soon as you took a bite. The irritating thirst that lingered on hours after the meal further reinforced my belief that heavy dosage of MSG was used.

Chen Chen Roast Duck & Goose - Pudu

Chen Chen Hong Kong Goose Duck Chicken in Pudu. There are two others nearby, on the same street. I think I have tried them all and frankly, none impressed me. This one even advertises Hong Kong "Sham Tseng" on the signboard! Sham Tseng is famous for its roast goose!

But since it's been a long time since I last dined there, I went ahead to try this one, again.

Quarter of a goose.
2013-08-27 12.11.27 copy
Rather chewy, salty and not very flavorful. Nothing like the ones I have tried in Sham Tseng.

I think I will just go for roast duck and not goose anymore. I'll also stick to safe places like Loong Foong and De Champion.

Meng Kee Char Siew - Glenmarie

We wanted to try the siew yuk (roast pork) but it was all sold out. So was the wonton noodle :(

We ended up with just char siew (BBQ Pork) and sausage.

The char siew was really nice. I think I like the char siew here more than the one in Famous Seremban Favorite
2013-08-21 13.12.03 copy

Taugeh...nice and crunchy. Better than most other places I've been to.
2013-08-21 13.12.43 copy

The bill came to RM33.00 for what you see above, two plates of rice and two glasses of warm Chinese tea.

Ming Kee Claypot Chicken Rice - Kepong Baru

Again, another stall that caught my attention because of there were always many patrons there. This one was selling claypot chicken rice. I just had a good one in Brickfields and thought it'd be interesting to make a comparison so I checked this one out.

Claypot chicken rice. The chicken was quite dry. There was salted fish too but it's all pre-mixed in the rice.
R0023400 copy

Lotus root soup with chicken feet.
R0023402 copy

R0023397 copy

Total cost: RM11.50 including soup and a glass of cold kumquat. I think it's quite pricey. The chicken rice wasn't very good at all, and far behind this one in Brickfield, which cost me only RM8 (no soup). Working it backward, that was like I paid RM4.50 for the soup?

Anyway, I doubt I will visit this stall again.

Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites

I have been told that the char siew in this place is really great so I decided to give it a try one day.

Char Siew (BBQ Pork). This was nice but perhaps we set our expectation too high. It just wasn't as tender I'd liked them to be.
R0023341 copy

Siew Yuk (Roasted Pork). The skin was quite hard and not very crispy. Totally subpar compared to places like Kuala Lipis Noodle but too bad it closed down already.
R0023340 copy

Sui Gao. There were 5 in this bowl. Totally unimpressive. Just like any other sui gao you could get anywhere.
R0023343 copy

Hakka Mee. Better than the average types I have tried elsewhere but yuck, too much MSG in it. Or maybe the MSG was from some other dishes. The point was, I was thirsty from as soon as we finished eating (12:30pm) till late in the afternoon!
R0023338 copy

Hakka Lo Shu Fun. I thought this is a Teochiew noodle, no?

Wong Kee wonton noodle - Kepong Baru

Every time I passed by this stall, I saw many patrons there so one day I decided to try it myself.

Big mistake!

Wonton noodle with mushroom and chicken feet. You can tell how soggy the noodles were from here, can't you? The chicken feet weren't very tender either.

I must say the fact that they made their own noodle was also part of the reasons I stepped into this stall. Big disppointment.
2013-07-28 19.27.25 copy

2013-07-28 19.27.56 copy

It's really really bad. Easily one of the worst I have ever tasted. The noodles were really soggy and quite tasteless.

Not cheap either. RM7.50 for the plate of noodle and fu  zhuk yee mai.

I strong advise you to avoid this at all cost. If you happen to be there but really need to eat something, I suggest you try this porridge stall just across from this noodle stall. You'll be happy you make the 5 steps across the lane.
