Kota Damansara had recently had become one of my hunting ground for food. With a lot of restaurant, kopitiam and café’s mushrooming around the neighborhood, one thing I can say that their food in that area so is so far so good until I got expose to this small shop in the area. Famous for its seafood and its fried hot wok dish and among its local neighborhood, the taste had even attracted stars as far as Hong Kong to dine in here at Mei Chi Xuan Restaurant.
The shop is located in the heart of Kota Damansara.
This is what I mean that the shop had attracted crowd from far with the Hong Kong Starz in Super Trio show had dine here before yet Hoh Chiak local tv food hunter had featured them too.
Here we are, to try out their menu specially made by the chef for Chinese New Year.The chef want us to do photo shoot session first as I cannot wait to eat it. The aroma pilling up the room is just full with temptation.
‘Sea Cucumber with Seafood and Mushroom on a Dragon Boat’ had already amazed me with its very original food presentation.
Carefully crafted dragon head and tail with the broccoli decorated by the side and the rest of the ingredient sitting on top of it make it look like a floating boat. All of us were so impress. I always thought that only can see what those TV cooking show chef can do but never really on a local restaurant like this, which is not even a 4 star restaurant.
Filled with chewy, juicy sea cucumber, scallop, prawns, mushroom, carrots and make the aroma blended so well. Broccoli was freshly cook to my likings. This dish was cook for the reason healthy eating. (from RM150)
‘Braised Pork Trotter with Mushroom and Lotus Seed’ (RM28 onwards).The pork trotter was cook to perfection until the pork meat is soft, yet not too starchy flavorful gravy that shower upon covers over mushroom and lotus seed, yet by putting one small piece of the fats will just melts on your mouth.
‘Brown Rice with Waxed Meat and Egg Yolk’ (from RM50)
Last dish had attracted me more on the taste as when it was serve, the aroma of the wax meat smells so niceeee~ . Not till the chef mention that, let me show you the hidden jewel, and when he cuts open, is like you seen in the TVB cooking drama series, when it cuts open the aroma just burst out even stronger and then the salty duck egg yolk was hidden in the middle like making it shining (I meant tvb style) but this gives me that kind off feeling yet you can smell the saltiness yet strong nice fragrance of the dish that makes us just want to walap the whole plate.
The rice is fried till just nice which is not too dry yet eat it with the wax meat is just perfect combination and the salty egg yolk just adds on the extra kick of it.
It was a great experience in this shop and I am surely looking forward on their normal menu which other customer had order and I can even smells the taste of it when I walk pass to toilet. Just lovin it~
