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.

Now, the good stuff begins…

This is the place that I’ve been wanting to come very often, and at the same time, would like to introduce it to my fellow friends and colleagues. Because this is a seafood place that worth every penny. This time around, I brought along ALGJ and MSF. MSF said she wouldn’t have join us if it wasn’t for my birthday celebration. It was because Jinjang is just so far away from our office. The time we took to reach here was more than 1 hour, due to the after office hours jam.

As usual, the fried little squids that I won’t miss, while MSF said she has been craving for crabs all this long. Hence we ordered 2 XL sized crabs. A sweet and sour flavour and baked style. The crabs were magnificent because the size of the pincers were about the size of my palm. Sweet and sour flavoured crab was not a simple dish to make. So far, I haven’t had a good sweet and sour crab in KV before. The last best one was from my home town, which I think the place has closed down. Now, I have finally found a sweet and sour crab which I could put in my mouth. Not that I’m biased, but it was really good. As for the baked crab, it was very salty though, similar to what I had in Seremban.

Fortunately, both of them were quite satisfied with the food and find that the bill was reasonable. Before we left the place, MSF said she has to come again for crabs next time. Generally, all the food we had for the evening were quite good. This place has never disappoint me so far.

After our work at OH in Jalan Ipoh, HL said it’s better we have dinner before going back office due to the bad jam. Since we were nearby Jinjang, so I recommended them my favourite fried little squids place, which is just nearby. Though it took us almost 1 hour to reach that place, due to the bad jam from Jalan Ipoh to Jinjang. It’s been so long since I last came here, probably more than a year or 2. I’ve since forgotten which junction to turn in, fortunately I suddenly thought of the name and able to find it on GPS. Lucky for me, the other 2 restaurants beside this was not POI-ed by the community. I guess this shows that this place is the better one than the other 2.

HL said he doesn’t want to have rice. Diet? Now he knows he’s fat. So we ended up with vermicelli and noodle only.

... I asked for the Seremban style fried rat tail noodle, but she cut me off with something called the "rainbow rat tail noodle" instead. Little did I know, it wasn't fried! Disappointing.

Firstly, the fried vermicelli in clams was served. I was having trouble eating that because the clams used were so tiny. It was difficult to pick them out, even more difficult than picking chopped sausages in a fried rice, because the vermicelli tends to get in the way. Like HL said, it was a little bit dry though. Then came the surprised, the “rainbow rat tail noodle”. I thought it would be fried. Anyway, the rat tail noodles were pretty tasteless, the shark’s fins style soup too. Despite plenty of crab meat in it, it tasted just salty and lacked the sweetness from the crab meat. I could even find crab’s roe in the soup. There goes my strict diet, but then, I couldn’t possibly pick out every single strand of crab meat, could I?

Finally, the star of the night was served. The fried little squids were full glazed in delicious looking dark sauce. The last few time I had this, they weren’t glazed in so much of sauce. It reminded me of my hometown’s fried little squids, except the sauce here was so much saltier. Fortunately, it was made up by the super crunchy deep fried squids. Regrettably, I’ve had quite a few of it, about 6 pieces. I guess I just can’t keep my promise of not having meat. But I’m a sucker for this. So, screw my strict diet! At least, for this time. *hehe* (I could hear DL calling me “hao poh” already)

Major failure tonight? Almost, but saved by the fried squids. Perhaps we should have just stick to having rice and dishes.
