Dinner at Topwok


I was indeed excited to learn that the Topwok restaurant is going to reopen soon after a lapse of a year.  It used to be my 'second kitchen' as I would ring up and place my orders for takeaway whenever I was busy or too lazy to cook.
It reopened on 1st April, operates for dinners, lunch and dinner only on Sundays.  It is indeed a joy to the residents of the surrounding neighbourhood as most of them patronise this restaurant which is clean, food is good and the price reasonable. 





Sambal petai, (stinking beans), we ordered a small portion as some of us do not take these stinking beans.
Tasty, not too spicy sambal and crunchy petai - 10 ringgit.


Their signature dish, Guinness spare ribs ....... deep fried succulent spareribs coated with a sauce made with Guiness stout, yummy and meaty - 12 ringgit


Mango kerabu with deep fried cuttle fish ....... we found this to be a wee bit sour, otherwise tasty.   - 8 ringgit


Steamed Patin fish with black beans ....... this meaty fresh water fish is virtually scaleless.  A favourite amongst the seniors at the table as it was very fresh.  Every edible part was devoured, except for the back bone and bits of the head, even the eyes were not spared! This dish was  46 ringgit


'Seong tong lai pak' ....... Mini bokchoy soup with both salted egg and century egg.  I wasn't able to snap a picture of the whole bowl of soup as it was served in bowls individually ..... never mind, just take what's left before it's being scooped!  This was 9 ringgit.

The total bill came to 97.90 ringgit plus tea and rice for the 5 of us.  To avoid disappointment it's best to make a reservation since the place is not very big as it occupies only a shoplot space.

Mung Bean Cake ~ 绿豆糕

These Mung Bean Cakes are made with split mung beans and they can pass off as mooncakes as they are shaped using the plunger moulds for mooncakes.  I find these mung bean cakes refreshing and not so heavy as mooncakes and they are a perfect match with a cup of hot Chinese tea.
