Since the opening of Sunway Velocity, the outer boulevard area had suddenly become a mini Chinatown. With many classic restaurants especially Sichuan hotpot is flocking into the mall. With the latest addition into the area is Chong Qing Grilled Fish is opening their first outlet in Malaysia at Sunway Velocity. Is a brand hail all the way from Singapore that have its own strong followings.
As the owner travelled to Sichuan, China, he was inspired by the legends and anecdotes, especially this grilled fish dish which exudes the multiplicity of Chongqing cuisine. Made up of a cross between grilled fish and Sichuan hotpot, the signature grilled fish is marinated with more than 20 herbs and spices and charcoal-grilled to perfection.
The menu focus on grilled fish and you get to choose what type of fish, level of spiciness and choices of sides. You can also add on if you wish to.
For those of you could not take spicy, they do have other flavours to hit on too and some side dish a la carte that you can really choose from. A menu that cater to spicy and non-spicy eaters and combination of local flavours.
We ordered, Fresh Fruit and Plum Yakult
a modern design of the outlet with hint elements of Classic Chin
first dish we are hitting on is this Spicy Chicken Cubes. A dish that is done to perfection where the chicken cubes is freshly fried, then air dry for a while before putting into the wok to stir fried it again. Indeed a dish that you need to go with beer. Skin is crispy and with a punch of heat. Love it.
Chinese Spinach with Salted eggs & Century Eggs – Topped with cubes of garlic.
Salted Egg Fish Skin @ RM 24 is another dish that you can order as the fish skin is deep fried to crisp and I love my salted egg dish to be slightly more punchy in flavour.
Next we have Sichuan Pork Belly with Spicy Garlic Sauce @ RM 18. More like an entree dish, as you can taste hint of spices but it is not very spicy. Suitable for everyone that would want to give some spicy dishes a try.
I was told that their signature is Termeloh Patin Fish with Mushroom and Herbs @ RM 108 and decided to give it a try. Instead of going spicy we are trying something non spicy.
Fish is done to perfection. Meat is soft yet juicy and not too much bone. The best is the mushroom soup is very fragrant and quite unique as the taste do have mild after taste of herbs and the broth is slightly thick. Interesting enough that it is not as salty as what I thought it would be. Best to go along with a bowl of rice.
I am definitely going to come back to try their spicy fish as they have a few flavours that I would want to try such as:
- Spicy Numbing
- Spicy Fragrant
- pickled cabbage
- Fresh Chillies
This is a place which is suitable for both families and friends where there are balance of spicy and non spicy dish.
