I am a big fan of China food especially anything which is more towards Szechuan cooking style. Love their super spicy and oily base cooking. Yap, I might sound crazy as what my friend say but then I have dine one before which is really good in Melbourne, that continue my hunt for best Szechuan food in KL. Lucky Sichuan Restaurant is one of the nearest.

Lucky (1)

since its my friends birthday, then Sally highly recommended one of her regular spot which is Lucky Restaurant that sells szechuan food. Surely when Sze Chuan food is mention, I wont say no.

Lucky (2)

As for her booking and since she is a regular, we got a spot upstairs. I am amazed with the interior design that they are actually operating 2 levels of the shoplot and they have decorate the whole place with authentic Chinese ambiance. Wooden round door, with lantern lighting and bamboo painting on the wall.

In the menu, price are pretty much the same compare to the rest of the restaurant and everything looks good too.

 For starter, we head for something really spicy, as the sea of red chili oil is only deceiving.

Lucky (9)

Not really spicy or maybe my spiciness level had increase. Great start and its pretty much a must order Item.

Lucky (10)

For someone who cant take spiciness, then Fried bittergourd is highly recommended! Fried to perfection that bitter gourd taste is not too bitter and its very aromatic with wok hei. Ended order another plate.

Lucky (11)

Sweet and Sour Pork intestine was gone in seconds. Chewy and light spicy end that makes it nice to go with rice.

Lucky (12)

Sour Spicy Soup turns out to be out of my expectation as I have expected too much in this dish when comes to this restaurant. This shop the soup have more sourish and a bit strong of vinegar taste.

Lucky (13)

 this dish turns out to be good too, as the pork slices are soft, with sourish spicy gravy.

Lucky (14)

This is a must have, as fried chicken cubes are crispy and aromatic with their own seasoning of powder and fried along with lots of dry chilli. Not bad.

Lucky (15)

 Pai Kuat did not really finish as its quite normal. .

Lucky (16)

This is one of my favourite dish when comes to Szechuan restaurant. Some of you might find it too oily or cook in a sea of hot pippin oil. For this restaurant, I don really like their fish slices and their soup base.

Lucky (17)

 happy Birthday to our B’day Boi Marcus. . :d Another great cakes from Fatboybakes

Overall the food is good and I am keen to try their Malat Steamboat. .  smells good. For their fried dishes, I still prefer my favourite stall at Jalan Alor (click  here) currently they have fine tune to local taste, you have to mention authentic spiciness.

Food discovery on my some of my friends favourite place never fail to impress me. Of course I really need to know which friend that have similar taste bud like mine. :p It was a long weekend and decided to drop by Klang to meet my friend as I have not seen her since she move back to KL. As she know I love to eat then she decided to bring me to this Restaurant New Boston in Kopitiam version that is one of the most popolar restaurant in Klang for ‘tai chow’.

Restaurant New Boston is no stranger to local folks here as most of them arrive as early as 5.30pm to get a spot here including us,even right before the shop open whereby the worker is still arranging the table and chairs, heating up wok and steam machine. Indeed they are like the famous restaurant in Klang.

boston (1)

Everyone just bring their own tea and having a great conversation around the table sipping chinese tea while waiting for the store to start cooking. Every one just place their order first then look for a spot. According to my friend, here is one of a favourite restaurant to many of them including family dinner place.

boston (2)

Just the 2 of us, my friend order all her favourite dish that this Tai Luk Mee大碌面/Hokkien Mee福建面 is a must order. To me I am not a big fan of this noodle cuz in Klang valley its hard to find some where that can fried really nice plate out.

boston (3)

I must say I am impress, as the noodle is well fried with ‘wok hei’ that thick soy souce is thick enough to coat onto the noodle, fried along with pork lard and its big chunky one. Superb in taste and finally I have found one of the best that would made it top 3 best fried noodle on my list.

boston (4)

Steamed “Lala” 清蒸”啦啦” is another dish that you must not miss here if you do visit this outlet.

boston (5)

This steam lala is slightly different version compare to those that I have, sprikle with lots of fried onion, ginger and chili padi.

boston (6)

Soup base is absolutely amazing that is filled with spicy ginger taste along with hint of chili padi at the end that make it a perfect combination, chinese wine that they are using is sligtly mild yet soak onto lala very well. One sip of soup base, you will keep continue drinking it. Lala are very fresh and a perfect simple dish to go along. What I meant different version as, the lala taste serve here is mild in taste compare to others that I have tried before yet it stood up pretty well.

Usually my friend come with her family of 5 they would order this 2 big plate. My version is medium size.

boston (7)

‘Nestum Mantis Prawn‘ is another amazing dish from the restaurant. I have yet come accross to any restaurant that put is so generous with their ingredient. Its like a moutain high fried nestum along with mantis prawn and for 2 of us to eat 3 dish is just  too much. Mantis prawn would feed 3 person easily best of all if please order beer to eat along. Its a perfect companion.

Till date this dish taste still stuck in my mind as nestum fried to crips with egg and chili padi make the slight spicy taste in it and its just aromatic.

boston (8)

This is what happen if you come after 6pm, as the crowd just pour in like wild fire, as people already start queue to get a seat and as it head towards night time, this store would operate the whole street.

If you reach here and have not got a spot, forget about it first as you need to place your order first, as waiting time can easily takes up to 60-90 minutes on peak hour. So please do have patient if you come here peak hour.

Best time to come is to reach at 5.30pm or 11pm onwards.

No doubt that this is one of the best yet reasonable price on food that I have come across as those 3 dish cost me RM38. I am surely going to return for more with more people to try out more stuff. – Highly Recommended!

If you miss home cook food, The Strand Kota Damansara do have one home cook food is pretty good which I had blog before (click here). Now, with their dishes getting popular and with quality of food that they cook are without MSG has extended their menu for more choices. Mum’s Seafood Noodle

Mums (1)

Mum’s Seafood Noodle @ RM 13.80, RM18.80 for special

Imagine the taste of the soup when it is cook with abalone slices, fish fillet, squids, prawns, bamboo clams & 珍珠鲍贝, the taste of the soup is definately sweet and aromatic with the KL version, a bit milky. I always prefer my noodle with bee hoon.

Mums (3)

Bean Paste Steamed Garoupa @ Market Price

Mums (2)

For a person who love steam fish, then you would want to order this special black bean sauce that had been slightly modified by them. It is perfectly to go along with rice, with a bit sweet sour taste and the best is they added some pork lard onto the sauce that makes it very aromatic.

Mums (6)

Stuffed Squid @ RM 18.80  stuff with solid minced prawns & pork braised in premium soy sauce been cook perfectly that makes it skin a bit chewy and the ingredient in it is soft.

Mums (7)

Pork lover like me, would not miss their ‘Lor Bak’, they do not use mince pork but use strips of it to be added into and wrap it finely, so that after fried, the skin could attach onto the meat also marinate with 5 spices  herbs.  RM 9.80

Mums (8)

One of my favourite dish for the night is ‘Salted Egg Yolk Fish Head’ that had been fried perfectly crispy then cook along with salted egg, coated all over the skin makes it a bit salty, crispy and I could just finish this by myself.              RM 16.80

Mums (9)

When go for fried or home cook food, it will never be complete for me without ordering any curry. ‘Curry Fish Head’, mild curry that is just right to go along with rice. I banjir my rice with this curry.

Mums (10)

I never really like petai, but this dish ‘Petai Prawns‘ cook along with big juicy prawns, onions and petai, as they have tone down the taste of petai which is not that strong. This dish was gone in 30seconds. Some of them also don even manage to taste but just get to smell. RM 15.80

Mums (11)

‘Jiuhu Char’ is one of the dish that must order. Cook till its a bit juicy and crispy with bangkuang, to eat it, can either eat it just like that or the best is to wrap it with lettuce add some sambal on top to add in the extra kick. RM 10.80

Mums (12)

Nyonya Chicken are cook by using kampung chicken, therefore the taste of it is more nice that cook along with some spices that comes out with thick in gravy coated on the chicken. RM 16.80

Mums (13)

Asam Fish @ Market Price, sour and spicy gravy with soft fish meat is something to look forward to make it more appetizing.

Mums (14)

Acar that taste sour and spicy.

Mums (15)

Fried Roasted Pork, first bite you will find it delicious, 2nd bite eat it raw like that you will start to find it salty, as this dish are meant to eat along with rice.

It was another satisfying meal at Mum’s Seafood.

I have been hearing this famous Nasi Kandar Beratur for very long time, that every time that I passby that area I will tell myself must go eat but always ended up in Nasi Kandar Line Clear which is my all time favourite.

On that night that I arrive back in Penang, we directly head to this place as I was inform that they have the most authentic curry that use all spices available to cook on it. The difference compare to the rest of the Nasi Kandar is the spices aroma in the curry, not really spicy but aromatic.

beratur (1)

With the name itself Beratur (Lining Up) you sure do have to wait for your turn to arrive, as on that night we were lucky that the line took us mere 5 minutes, sometimes you have to wait as long as 30 minutes to an hour.

beratur (2)

beratur (3)

Of course they sure do have some of their dishes would be their signature order,

beratur (4)

beratur (5)

Not many places now that still use coconut shell to take the rice.

beratur (6)

After putting the white rice on the plate its your turn to hunt down your favourite dish that is available on the couter.

beratur (7)

beratur (8)

Of course I love my plate of Nasi Kandar to be very Banjir (flood with gravy) especially a mixture of all the available gravy on the counter. This plate order is with Beef slices, Ladies finger and Telur Bawang. The best of all is the beef which is very soft and the gravy that soak along in it is kick ahh!

beratur (9)

My plate is beef slice, telur bawang and ayam madu. Total damage for both plate is less than RM12 and if it is in KL definately more than that.

Its still worth a try as its famous for its authentic spices used in to cook the curry, but I still prefer Line Clear. After this hunt, I have heard another upcoming best nasi Kandar some where in Jelutong. Will be my next destination!

Plz Note: Different people always got different pricing in this stall, especially tourist might get rip off, so always ask for pricing before you take any!!

This trip back to Penang I have not much time to hunt back my favourite food but manage to go for my favourite restaurant. Bali Hai @ Gurney. They had a few signature dish that I always would order. For those who are going to Penang for this festive season, MUST not miss this nice restaurant because they do serve fresh seafood, instead of most of the time, penangites will drive to Tambun for fresh seafood. This restaurant is another alternative.

This is the reastaurant outlook where you drive passby, will attract your attention because of its crowd and also their decoration as there are a few tables uniquely decorate and isolated from other table with the like of kampung, atap style infront of the restaurant.

This is whereby they store all the fresh seafood’s.

Fresh lobster good in shasimi and cheeze baked. Mouth watering…..

More options to choose from, if you do not know how to choose fresh, just Tembak lah!!! or ask the person to assist~

This restaurant is usually damm packed on the weekend. If you decided to go around weekend or public holidays, the best time to reach is before 7.30pm. Easy parking inside the restaurant and easy table to get. If you reach after 8pm, ermmm..you can expect to wait a bit.
This is what me and my parents had ordered, Kam Hiong Lala(longer version)’ Actually, this does not goes well with longer version and not a good combo of kam hiong with this. Usually I ordered in fried with chilies. Trying new taste. Definitely I ate most of it because of the nice taste. The lala also fresh.
This is their ‘Signature Taufu. Definitely must try. Inside the taufu are stuffed with small prawns or what we call ‘heh bi'(hokkien) and it is fried and abit salty. It is very soft in the inside and very nice aroma of the ‘heh bi’, goes very well if you are eating with rice.

Wah!!! This is definitely my favourite dish. ‘Wong Kam Har(prawn)’ Whatever with Wong Kam defiantly taste nice. The lady ask us to try with the prawn after peel the skin. So decided to go along with it. But definitely does not really taste as nice with prawn with their shell. So therefore do not request to ask them to remove the prawn shell. Taste better with it. You can ask them to do ‘Wong Kam Crab’ and Wong Kam something something. It is also nice.

The taste of it, is just similar what I eat back in Melbourne, Chinatown which is the restaurant is called Desert House. Lol. For those who are in Melbourne you should know.

The taste of the Wong Kam is rich with century egg, butter smell, and when you lick it, the taste of butter and the century egg will just stick on your tongue and slowly melt. With saltiness yet the ‘harumness‘ of the taste kam hiong leaves, you must just not miss this.

This is another one of my favourite dish. ‘Curry Fish Head’. One of their signature also but to much disappointment, this usually I ordered it was very fresh and the curry is nice. Tonight, everything does not goes well, the curry taste weird like put in the fridge overnight and reheat it, the fish head is not fresh whereby the meat is hard. It is suppose to be soft and easy to slice it. Definitely I do complain ‘kau kau‘ to the captain.

This restaurant worth to go, cuz they do have first class service, 3 table to 1 waiter/waitress. When ever your plate is dirty, they will directly change for you to a new plate. Five star service you can expect and the waiter and waitress there are definitely friendly. Suits my dad cuz he loves to talk alot to people.

If you had not a fresh seafood on that night, please do complain, as we do get RM40 off on our bill, whereby we just paid around RM96 after complain of the curry fish head. Cuz customer is their priority.

Location:

This restaurant is Located along Gurney whereby it is in the middle of that stretch.

If you coming from Gurney Hotel(left) go straight and after you see Pelita Mamak, slow down. It is nearby there


If you are coming from Gurney Plaza(right) you will have to past Silverton Condo, and bout 300Meter, it is just nearby there.
