Restoran Southern

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I assumed procrastination is really the thief of time. OMG, looking back at my blog now, I had realised that I had not been actively blogging since November. Here's another post that was supposed to be published long time ago. A continuation of food post on dinner with Auntie S while she was back in Malaysia. This time, we were having our dinner in Restoran Southern in Kuantan. This restaurant is famous for their roasted duck. Every year during CNY, we need to make an early booking to get their duck. So Mum and Dad decided to bring Auntie S for dinner in this place. We were practically walking to this restaurant since it is really nearby our new place. I guess around 5-7 minutes of walking distance only (very near right?). Sorry guys, I forgot to take down their shop address. Just ask around for Restoran 'Nam Fong' if you happens to be around in Kuantan town. Locals should be very familiar with this place.

Look out for their bright restaurant signage.

Or better still, a BIG gigantic roast duck signage.

We wanted to order their specialty duck but to our disappointment, they were sold out. Can you imagine that and it was just around 7pm plus. So be early guys if you wanted to try their duck. So we ordered a few order items to compensate our disappointment.

Kung Po Chicken - GOOD

Sweet and Sour Fish Fillets - above average.

Mui Choy Kau Yok - GREAT STUFF!

Old Cucumber Soup

Claypot Beancurd - above average.

Stir Fry Choy Tum - very fresh and crunchy.

All the above items total up to around RM60 with 5 rice and 5 drinks. Quite reasonably priced dinner as quoted by my Auntie S. I guessed she was converting the RM to £. Overall is a good dinner experience, nothing beats the laughter of Mum and Auntie S busy chatting up during dinner. :)


A Reunion After Many Years

Friday, November 13, 2009

This week was a special week for Mum as her younger sister were back from Scotland after her last visit to Malaysia around 15 years ago. Therefore, I had took leaves to be back at home. Tonight we had our dinner in Restoran Alor Akar aka Hak Yee Kai as the locals called the restaurant. So all the for of us (Mum, Dad, Sis and I) with Auntie S and Auntie M came for a small reunion dinner.

A reunion after years.. :) Mum, Auntie M and Auntie S

Since Auntie S had not been back in Malaysia for a long time, we had ordered most of the recommended dishes in the restaurant for her to try. So what is the must have to order in this place. Of course their baked salted chicken aka beggar chicken.

Baked Salted Chicken (Beggar Chicken).
The taste of the herbs are too overwhelming even for me. Thus, it's even more overwhelming to Auntie S. Nevertheless, the chicken were smooth and tender. Maybe they should reduce the amount of herbs next time. (But according to Mum and Sis, normally the chicken tasted better than this)

Other dishes that we had ordered were Salted Egg Yolk Squids, Beancurd with Minced Meat, Claypot Salted Fish with Pork Belly, Sizzling Fried Red Snapper with Special Sauce and Four Types Beans (Sei Tai Tin Wong).

Salted Egg Yolk with Squids. This was good and the portion was huge and it cost us only RM11. Value for money.

Beancurd with Minced Meat. About average. I guess this is a normal dish that will fares good in most restaurants.

Claypot Salted Fish with Pork Belly. Another recommended dish especially for salted fish lovers.

Sizzling Fried Red Snapper with Special Sauce. This was good but I think the chef over fried the fish thus resulting the fish to be a bit hard. I love the sauce. Yummy.

Four Types Beans (Sei Tai Tin Wong)

Overall the dinner was good. We can see the 3 of them were having a great time chit charting and talking about recent updates of current lives. After the dinner, we had drop by to Auntie M's house to continue the gossiping. Hehe... :)

Fried Porridge Anyone?

Sunday, November 8, 2009

Our 'makan kakis' ventured into Klang town again for food. This time we were looking out for a place specialised in Fried Porridge situated in Taman Berkeley Klang. From my observation, they don't have a huge signage for their restaurant name but from the receipt, the restaurant was called Restoran Bubur Goreng. The most significant landmark for this restaurant was they were situated next to the Old Berkeley Cinema.

Outlook of the restaurant- the place was more like a few 'makan' stalls situated together.

Their specialised belacan sauce.

Very spicy and fragrant. Nice!

Fried Porridge -tasty and good. Can't wait to have another bowl in my next visit.

Crab Meehoon - lots of meaty crabs in their serving.

Stir-fry Yau Mak

I'll definitely come for my second, third and countless visits to this hidden gem in Klang. I love it especially the fried porridge - lots of goodies inside such as tofu, cuttlefish, pork and spring onions. Do come for a try if you never heard and taste about the fried porridge.

Restoran Yong Tau Foo Chan Chan

Saturday, November 7, 2009

It's a rainy Saturday night, and we were craving for some Yong Tau Fu. So, Hubby, CW and I went to one of our usual 'makan' place for some hot and crispy Yong Tau Fu - Restoran Yong Tou Foo Chan Chan in Bandar Manjalara. Their outlet was packed with diners both shop lots when we reached. So without waiting, we ticked the items we wanted and placed our orders to their waiter.

I never bump into friends while having dinner in KL before but tonight is the first time we bump into familiar faces - Mr HYH and Ms LHL. Well I guess, KL are pretty small too. So they joined us for the night.

Look for their bright signboard

For me, I always enjoyed this 'Yin Yang' Style Sauce aka Sweet Sauce + Chilli Sauce

Some Yong Tau Fu items (white beancurd, bittergourd, chilli and dumplings) are served with their soup. We got lots of green leafy veges in the soup. THUMBS UP!

Of course, there's plenty of fried items too. My usual favourite - fried tau fu pok, fried brinjal and fried fu chok (roll and sheet type)

Besides offering Yong Tau Fu, they have other dishes too. We decided to order Oyster Sauce Poh Li Sang Choy (lettuce), Vinegar Pork Trotter and Asam Kampung Fish too. The gravy for the pork trotter were sourish and sweet. It was good but I'll prefer them to have some spicy taste as well (maybe add more ginger and a bit dried chillies?). No complaints on their Asam Kampung Fish - it was cooked to perfection. The right level of spiciness and sourness. Both items are good to be served with a bowl of hot steaming white rice. YUMMM....

We need greens too in our diet.. Hehe...

Vinegar Pork Trotter

Asam Kampung Fish

All the 5 of us were so full by the end of our meal. Definitely recommended for Yong Tau Fu lovers. For your info, all 'yong liu' were priced at RM1. Kinda pricey but they made it up with a bigger serving size.
