Goldview Hakka Food

I seem to be on a hakka food roll lately, with the recent visit to Sekmechoy and the rice dumplings. the funny thing is this, i grew up eating a lot of Hakka Cuisine cooked by my maternal grandmother but I never remembered much of these so-called typical hakka dishes. I can remember her Lui Cha (擂茶) most of all, along with the occasional stewed pork belly with yam (芋头扣肉), yong tau foo (釀豆腐), wine chicken (黄酒雞) etc. even then, she cooks less of these traditional dishes now, and seems more keen on “modernising” them, by added fusion ingredients. but that’s beside the point, which is that I find it interesting to re-discover the roots of Hakka Cuisine by visiting such eating establishments.

have noticed this restaurant for a while now as we have some suppliers around the area. finally managed to step in to have lunch with my colleague. a menu is placed on each table but I find it easier to order from the menu board hanging on one wall as it lists down the famous hakka dishes. my colleague, a fan of the tasty wine chicken (花彫鸡) quickly placed her order. the only thing that truly caught my eye was the “yam abacus” (算盘子). and we both agreed to have steamed egg (蒸水蛋) and steamed choy sum.


the steaming hot wine chicken was served in a claypot and garnished with cilantro. the taste of the “tasty wine” was more prominent in the gravy, but not in the chicken. so we keep drizzling the chicken pieces with the gravy to taste the wine.
I was very pleased with the “yam abacus” (算盘子). Stir-fried with mushrooms, black wood fungus (木耳), beancurd and minced pork, the bite size “yam beads” tasted divine. the beads are made with tapioca flour and kneaded with steamed yam before being stir-fried in a hot wok.

the steamed dishes were the perfect balance to the previous two dishes in taste as these were milder and more “ching” (清). I found the choy sum which was topped with fried garlic to be a little bland. but i applaud the cooks for using less oil for this vegetable dish.

Decent food and service. Appreciate that the proprietor bothered to come by the table and asked if the food suited our tastebuds.
