The last time we came here, the place was sold out. This time we were here a lot earlier. It was DL’s 3rd attempt though, after 2 failures.

While waiting for DL to park his car and order for food, these are the eye candies from the place.

... Old Master Q (老夫子) as mural for the washrooms. Classic!


... wine rack? Not really, but rather empty bottles.


... instead of leaving business cards, they keep umbrellas.

Now, the good stuff begins…

... zhup fan? This was nice, the taste was just right.


... pot of gold, basically formed with seafood of various species.


... I call this the mommy's fried egg.


... finally, a dish which the place was meant for, BBQ grilled lamb.


... it looked like a slice from a roasted duck.


... the leftover soup from pot of seafood was turned into a vegetable mushrooms soup.

And all good stuffs come at a price…

... the original chilli pan mee in KL.

Rating: 6.5/10

The original is still unmatched, albeit it was really spicy. I had only 2 scoops. Should have gone with only 1.

Finally, I found a my favourite coffee place, which I can hangout during weekends. Though it’s not too near, but it was convenient, with plenty of parking space. Most importantly, the place is cozy and it has free Wifi Internet access.

... 4 different flavours of pork sausages.


... mixed pork platter.

Rating: 6/10

There were 4 flavoured sausages on that grilled sausage plater. They were quite nice cause they don’t have that kind of pungent smell from other pork sausages that I had. As for the mixed platter, the pork belly was acceptable cause the fats were not to thick. My piece of pork rib was easy to manage cause the meat fall off the rib bone easily, while EL’s piece was very stubborn though.

Aside learning that there’s actually belacan style baby lettuce, now I realised that baby lettuce can be cooked in Sze Chuan style. It not surprising to find this out if it’s coming from Long Grilled Fish Seafood, because this place is known to have variety of choices on, or off their menu. Unfortunately, as I had high hopes on this Sze Chuan style vege, it turns out the belacan style was still better. Perhaps Sze Chuan style just wasn’t suited for me that much, but it was still good though.

As for the fried little squids, I need not say much. Just read from here:

We were introduced this charcoal bean curd. The lady call it the “醜樣豆腐” (ugly bean curd). Aside from the appearance, it tasted pretty much the same, if not exactly the same as ordinary bean curd. The style was pretty normal, tasted quite nice though. The clam soup was our first try. Nothing much to praise about it. I guess Lala Chong’s name is not there for show.

The crabs were exceptionally good. Aside from the giant size, they were quite fresh and the meat don’t stick to the shell as you pull it out. The soup underneath has some wine taste to it, which actually tasted not bad. Though I’d prefer crabs with more crab roe in it. Our dinner ended with the mangoes that we bought earlier. Though some were sweet, some were seriously sour. What a good way to keep the appetite running.

Overall, our dinner was a satisfactory one. I wished this restaurant would move into PJ area instead of so far from where I stay.

... steamed nuts, not as sweet and juicy as Tai Thong's nuts.


... sweet and sour fish fillet rice.


... Kung Pao Chicken Rice.


... the bill. Seems like the steamed nuts were free of charge.

First time patronising this restaurant. Our set cost us only RM9/pax. Apparently, the steamed peanuts were complimentary. The taste were mediocre, but for such cheap price, you have a plate of rice with 2 types of vegetables and 1 meat as main course. Then you have a choice of hot or cold Chinese tea, bottomless. It’s really no complain if you are looking for a budget meal.

The sweet & sour sauce on fish fillet was acceptable, but the fish fillet was rather foul. I guess the fish was not as fresh as it could be. As for the Kung Pow chicken, it was nothing Kung Pow at all. Avoid the Kung Pow chicken set at all cost.

In the end, you’ll end up with a rather farty lunch.

... char cheong noodle.


... fish slice noodle soup.


... dumplings.

Rating: 4/10

First time having lunch here. Last time I came here was having breakfast and I tried the various flavours of the dumplings there. Today, I had something more filling. I ordered the char cheong noodle, which looks delicious, yet it wasn’t. The fish slice noodle was not bad though. Dumplings were nothing to shout about.

A place I’ll reserve when I ran out of stuff to eat and in desperate moment.
