When we arrived the sky was dark and threatening to rain. There was a strong wind blowing, macam kat over the sea.....waaaaaaa!!!!!!! Den terimbau konangan silam....masa muda-muda dulu....
This is a photo of the main entrance. Sorry the name (in neon lights) is unclear...mine is but a cameraphone from the lower caste of the NOKIA hierachy.
This was the bill...just to confirm the name of the restaurant. It's rather smudgy...blame it on the good food.
We finally ordered : two plates of white rice, 2 glasses of longan (I then added a glass or apple juice...yummy!), a plate of sizzling black pepper beef, a plate of crispy abalone and a plate of spicy garoupa. The beef arrived first, sizzling and spitting away on its plate whih is in the shape of a bull...don't believe me, check out the photos.
The beef dish...spitting away.
'Allo hombre, it's ze bull's head...now you believe me?
We were hungry, so we belasah the beef first...sedap! Then the abalone arrived, pun sedap, tatsed like chicken tapi lagi best, and finally the garoupa.....hmmmmm.......pun sedap jugak. Here comes the photos!
The abalone...not to be eaten alone as the portion is huge, even by my standards!
The Garoupa....kurang rupa tapi sedap rasa.
While we were satisfying our hunger, a malay couple and their teenage daughter watched us. Then the man approached us and introduced himself as the owner. Asked us about the food, we said it was good. Seems that the owner used to work in China, and he was introduced to the restaurant. When he came back home, he decided to take on the franchise and opened a restaurant at The Summit. Two years later they decided to open a branch at Kota Damansara and alhamdulillah, my hubby and I were given the opportunity to enjoy the food. The manager of the shop in Kota Damansara is actually the son or is he the son-in-law (I forget) of the actual owners in China.
My thirst quenching apple juice...so cool and delicious.
The food is different from the usual chinese fare you get here in Malaysia. It's rather spicy and quite appealing to the palate. Should try it sometime...it's in Kota Damansara, housed in one of those brown buidings just in front of the Kota Damansara Giant Hypermarket (unfortunately I gave the flyers to a friend and can't give the actual address here). The food is good, the decor brings to mind the chinese coffee shops of yore, and the price will not take the joy out of the meal. So go on then, give it a try next time you are lost in the ever winding maze that is Kota Damansara.
