Luk Yu Tea House


my bruneian friend who was in town again with her parents was around the bukit bintang area and she asked for chinese food when we met up for dinner. hence we ended up luk yu tea house, which i’ve always liked for it’s deco. comprising of lattice grills, i was fascinated to learn that each lattice piece is different and represents different ethnic tribes of china. the dark stained carved chairs and marble tables is reminiscent of olden day tea houses.

the dining experience is sure to be memorable as the creators of starhill’s feast floor has engaged top-notch designers, chefs, staff etc. however our waitress was a little too eager in her recommendation of the specials to us that she came off as being more pushy. even when we asked her to slow down as she was rattling off so quickly we couldn’t hear her, she didn’t seem to notice our request and continued. hence we ordered mainly off the menu.

l-r: Fried Sang Mee (RM18), Dry Seafood Flat Noodles (RM20)

We ordered two fried noodle dishes to share between the 4 of us. The Fried Sang Mee (生麺) is stir-fried with prawns, green peppers, chilli strips, onion and bean sprouts. the flat noodles is roughly the same, with extra addition of other seafood such as squid etc. both had the lingering taste of wok hei (wok’s breath) but missed a little something if compared to their hawker counterparts. afterall, this is a halal eating establishment. maybe i am just a little too used to the taste of lard which does add a little oomph.

l-r: Garlic Fried 4 Vege (RM18), Century Egg & Shredded Chicken Porridge (RM8), Stuffed Scallop (RM48)

The medley of 4 vegetables was polished off quickly as it tasted delicious despite its simplicity. I ordered the porridge for myself as I was feeling a bit off and wanted something a bit more “ching” (clear). the rice had already been liquefied as it has been cooked so long. but i like my porridge this way, mushy and not in rice form. heh. the Stuffed Scallops were recommended by the waitress and we all agreed it was not worth the amount we were charged for it (RM48 for 5 pcs).

l-r: Wok Carrot Cake (RM6), Lo Mai Gai (RM6).

i didn’t try these two items as I was too busy slurping down my porridge. But as there were only empty plates by the time we left, I’m sure my friend and her family enjoyed dinner at Luk Yu greatly.
