[Eat] Succulent Steamed Rare Fish (Amazon/Siamese Red Tail Catfish) + Stewed Pork Leg + Bak Kut Teh @Hou Yee Kei Bak Kut Teh Stall/Corner (好易记肉骨茶) OUG

In conjunction of Mother's Day celebration dinner, we supposedly set to have dinner in one of the luxurious restaurant but after long consideration we decided to go to one place lesser people that we ate before once for long time ago. So it was the Hou Yee Kei Bak Kut Teh Stall/Corner 好易记肉骨茶 OUG. It wasn't a shop nor a restaurant but it was just corner with the normal zinc roof on top and open air space with tables and chairs. We remembered it was nice before so give it a try once again. 

We ordered 2 types of fish + 1 dish of pork leg + 1 portion of bak kut teh + 1 plateful of vegetables. 

Steamed Rare Fishes + Stewed Pork Leg + Bak Kut Teh + Vegetables-Yau Mak Choi (油麥菜) = Unforgettable succulent dinner. 

Savory Steamed Rare Fish (Amazon Redtail Catfish/Siamese Redtail Catfish/紅尾鴨嘴/紅尾虎) - the meat texture was incredibly tender and toothsome. I did a research about this type of fish, it is known as an excellent sport fish which requires a long spirited battle on rod and line and it was being called with different names (best name I could find would be the above). It is famous as primary target species for the anglers. Not easy to catch, but it seems to be one of the common aquarium fish. In Kuala Lumpur, I hardly could be offered with such fish nor seen in any of my friends' aquarium. But no doubt, this fish was definitely a must try and the taste of it was just perfectly flavoured. Irresistible! 

Couldn't resist to show you guys more on this fish.  Based on the facts that I managed to research on the internet, this size is considered very small. It can grow very big and huge, some I saw was about 35kg weight. I'm definitely interested to know more about this fish.

Another view of this fish! Awesome!

Big Head Carp Steamed Fish with garlic and ginger, topped with chopped parsley

The Big Head Carp Fish was pretty big though-yummy!

Succulent Stewed Pork Leg garnished with parsley

Closer view of the stewed pork-the taste was superb, mouth-watering. 

The more I look at it, the more I wanted to eat it again!

Oh! Almost forgotten to introduce their main dish actually - Bak Kut Teh. However, I think the other dishes above way too good compare to this-totally overcame it.

Romaine Lettuce Chinese Style - normal way the oyster sauce and some  fried garlic garnishing. 

Name: Hou Yee Kei Bak Kut Teh Stall/Corner (好易记肉骨茶) 
Location: Pretty hard to spot actually, it's at a corner of a shoplot. Nearby Jalan Mesra Ria Road / Road next to Sunday's Pasar Malam (Inter-junction of OUG and Kuchai Lama traffic lights). Check out the pictures above on how it looks like.
Price: Absolutely cheaper than alot of chinese restaurants in KL.

[Eat] Yummy Chee Cheong Fun 猪肠粉 (Steamed Rice Roll) @Uni Choice Taman Yulek, Cheras KL

It was a relaxing Saturday, woke up late and had lunch with sister and mum. During our lunch, I have suggested to go for a movie, we watched 'Safe' by Jason Statham. I have to say it was a great action movie, story was pretty good too. Must watch! Okay let's back to our food topic :-p. Came home and took a power nap after few previous busy weeks I have. So woke up about 8 or 9 pm, of course my stomach is asking for food again.

My sister basically shouting for food too and suggested to go for Chee Cheong Fun (Steamed Rice Roll) in Taman Yulek Cheras. So I have to get out my bed asap to get myself ready and rushed to my car, my mum also prepared herself with nice clothes. Drove our way there, luckily managed to get a car park slot for the first round. Out of 10 times, only 1 time I could get so lucky for this slot nearby to the stall. Oh yea, it's a road side/street stall but serves yummy chee cheong fun and it's famous in KL!

Yummy Pork Balls, Plain Fish Balls, Fried Fish Balls, Fried Fish Cake, Fish Paste with Beancurd Sheets (Fu Pei). This is considered the side order food for the dinner. 

Main food---> Chee Cheong Fun 猪肠粉 - Texture smooth and soft bites!

3 plates of chee cheong fun (steamed rice roll) for 3 of us with 1 plate full of the side order food.

[Eat] Abundance Dinner @Canton-I, The Gardens Mid Valley

It's been few weeks I didn't manage to post more of my meals, was pretty busy lately. So now this weekend seems to be more relaxing and here I'm commenting on one of my restaurant food - Canton-I, The Gardens Mid Valley. They serves Hong Kong Cuisine food to their customers, very crowded restaurant and their service just great!

Question 1 is 'How would I spend a night after work and drove myself, my mum and aunt all the way from Cyberjaya and picked them up along my way to Mid Valley?'. Well the answer was my aunt rang me up and asked if I have the time to take her to Mid Valley to buy some accessories for her new toy. I have already knew that she received a gift --> the NEW iPad (iPad 3) the day before. 

Question 2 is how to eat such ample and abundant amount of food Dinner with mum and aunt as shown below. It was just way too much of food. I guess my aunt was pretty excited and ordered the amount of food which can served for 10 big guys to eat. Haha just a description to show how full I was back then.

Rose-Smoked Premium Soy Sauce Chicken (RM1 Chicken) - Highlight promotion of the dinner. Portion: Whole chicken! The meat was so tender, taste was just okay. 

Tasty! Three Combination of Meat (Option: Honey-glazed BBQ Pork, Roast Pork Belly, Soy Sauce Chicken or Roast Duck).

Jumbo Prawn Dumpling Soup - Irresistible taste!!!

Normal Plain Wan Tan Mee (云吞面)to eat together with the food we ordered! The texture was smooth and the spongy bite just made you feel want to eat more. 

Stuffed Chinese Crullers (油炸鬼/Youtiao/Yao Char Kway) with Cuttlefish Paste and Steamed Rice Noodles. First time trying this dish, once bite, new kind of taste for me but it was amazingly nice combination of food aroma. Nice!

Our Dessert - Tong Sui: Barley Beancurd Skin with Gingko and Quail Egg Soup (白果腐竹鹌鹑蛋糖水) - Taste was just okay. Might be able to get better taste outside.

Healthy Vegetable Juice - Vegetables, Pineapple, Broccoli and Celery

Superb taste, love it! Signature Egg Tarts, Hong Kong Lotus Pastry and Baked BBQ Pork Pastry
