'Dong Zhi' reunion dinner

We had a sumptuous reunion dinner at Sun Lee How Fook on 'Dong Zhi'.  It was a warm and joyful reunion as this was the first time that all my 3 children were back together  for a short holiday.  I couldn't post this earlier as we had to go down to Kuala Lumpur very early next morning to join a tour to Hanoi.








suckling pig ......thin and crispy skin ..........ate this first with some plum sauce or on its own




like the soft steamed mantou that accompanied the succulent pig, yummy with plum sauce



after eating the skin, the waitress skilfully cut up the piglet with a pair of scissors



this is steamed 'Lam Kor Yu' also known as 'Soon Hock' ..... it's quite an expensive fish, and we only had half of it as it was quite big.... very chewy



each of us had some rice vermicelli to go with the fish sauce .....  delicious



this is my eldest girl's favourite dish, deep fried yam balls with scallop filling



we noticed that it was differently served this time ..... used to be served on a base of fried vermicelli



dried scallop wrapped in deep fried yam  ....... yummy




had some noodles, .......'three sliced meat noodles', which happens to be my son's favourite




dessert ........ water chestnut egg soup, my favourite




The whole dinner came to about RM350 and all of us were satisfied, especially my three musketeers!  It's togetherness that counts, they said!

    This restaurant is famous for its suckling pig. The whole piglet costs Rm110.

    The yam puffs have to be preordered and you must specify that you want dry scallops instead of fresh ones. Not so tasty with fresh scallops.

Fantastic Chicken/Chicken in black bean sauce ~ 豆豉鸡

This is a copycat dish from Old Kingdom Chinese restaurant in Surrey Hills, Melbourne.  When we saw 'Fantastic Chicken' dish on the menu, all of us were curious and yes, we agreed to give it a shot.  When the dish was served, there's nothing 'fantastic' about it, it's just chicken fillet fried with black bean sauce.  Nonetheless, it was a delicious and tasty dish to pair with a plate of steaming hot white rice.
