Hakka Recipe Restaurant

visited this restaurant when it first opened sometime last year (before I even started this blog) with some ex-colleagues who knew the proprietors and haven’t had the chance to go back since. since we were in the area recently, decided to bring my friend there for a treat.

the interior design is simple but cosy. i like the simple accents like the lantern-shaped lights, and the chinese lattice grill. as it wasn’t lunch hour yet, the place was not filled and we could have our pick on where to sit.

Michelle, the lady boss recommended the Drunken Chicken (黄酒鸡) and we chose the version with enoki mushrooms (RM23). Cooked with lots of ginger and black fungus and a very generous amount of homemade rice wine, it was indeed authentic and tasty. After lunch, I could feel the heat growing from all the rice wine! Lol. We also had the “Kai Lan in Two Varieties” (RM12) where part of it is sliced and deep-fried, and then cooked again with the rest of the vegetables. Anchovies and a dash of wine is added for that extra oomph. A winner with me because I simply love the taste of Kai Lan cooked with wine.

Also had the Hakka Home Style Soup (RM5.50) which is actually white radish soup. Very flavourful indeed which was due to the abundant use of dried baby cuttlefish. The Steamed Salted Egg with Pork (RM15) also drew praise from us as it had a very homecooked feel. The kids in our family would definitely love eating this, esp. with white rice.

Instead of plain rice, I opted to have the curry chee cheong fun instead as it was the one dish from this restaurant that has made an impression on me during my first visit. the curry gravy is just sublime. the photo says it all. just don’t lick your monitor. :p

they have quite a wide range of items on the menu, including homemade yong tau foo. this place seems very popular as it filled up quite quickly during our meal there.
