Those of you in Mid Valley, Meet Chuck Two Sons which is a new establishment from the folks who bring you classic recipe at Sri Melaka. First of all, to clarify that they are not Two Sons Bistro at Publika (which I thought they are). An outlet that sits at the far end corner that makes them a hidden gem at Mid Valley or located next to Brotzeit that brings you good food from the Northen region. Their cooking method brings me a good childhood memory taste as it is very much similiar to my grandma kampung cooking style.
An outlet that is design to bring you some nostalgic feeling yet with a modern classic touch. A private room that is able to cater for private dining or even to host a meeting at its own private space as it is covered with red velvet curtain.
A menu that I would certainly come back to try out other items.
Best of all, their Penang Fried Char Koey Teow @ is top with lots of pork lard that is freshly fried. Crispy inside out and would love mine to be slightly more spicy. Best if the “wok Hei” is there and after gave feedback to the owner, only relise that their kitchen is build to mall safety procedure that give this dish a little set back. However, still a nice plate of CKT but price might be slightly too steep.
Jeng jeng jeng, this is one of my favourite for the night as if you Penangnites do remember a famous Laksa stall that sells, Penang Laksa and Nyonya laksa at Pulau Tikus Market during night which the old auntie no longer selling it few years back that I have been hunting it a while and now its surfacing up again. Penang Nyonya Laksa is slightly different from others where it is slightly Thai version infuse. In Chuck Two Sons, have bought over the recipe from the auntie and still maintain the flavor as it is and top up some crab meat into it to make it slightly fragrant and sweater. Crab Laksa @ RM 23. Recommended!
Rice lover, you might not want to miss this as this is highly recommended – Tau Yew Bak is amazingly good, with the soy gravy base is watery enough to make my rice banjir yet not too salty as it is pack with 5 spices powder that is not over powering and the meat is just right at tender and juicy with fatty parts in between. A classic dish that I miss alot as this brings back a good childhood memory taste. @ RM 35.50
Nyonya Lobak @ RM 12 for 2. Love the skin of loh bak as the skin is very different and found out that the skin is brought down weekly all the way from Penang with a traditional method of making the skin.
Salted Fish Stewed Pork @ RM 35 is another type of dish that will goes well with rice. Aroma of salted fish is just right that did not over power the whole pot of it, yet strong enough to goes well with the pork.
Something aromatic to nibble or as a dish also could hit on Salted Egg Sotong @ RM 30. Fried to perfection that the gravy is well coated onto the squid.
Asam Fish Siakap is one of their signature as the fresh is fresh, top with northern nyonya cooking style as the gravy is not too watery, pack with spices flavour, sourish enough to my liking with a nice mild spicy end. A bowl of rice is the perfect companion. @price is at market rate.
For their Ice Kacang is actually a Penang ABC version that I have come across that quite similiar to the one famous in Penang, Bukit Mertajam area.
For some simple finishing, Sago is the best of all. Just some coconut milk, sago and their signature Gula Melaka to die for!
For beer they have one of my favourite boutique beer – Little Creature and another unique craft beer from Kyoto which is have a really interesting profile.
Those of you who are working there, I am definately envy at you as they do offer great set lunch that you guys should not miss.
If you are willing to pay slightly more for a classic homecook meal in a mall, Chuck Two Sons is definately one of a place that you should hit on. Most of their ingredients are transported from Penang to maintain its classic cooking style and method.
