My friend recently introduce me to this classic Hakka food in Cheras, Hakka Marble Restaurant 美浩天 at Taman Bukit Anggerik, Cheras. Run by a few family members and their food range is pretty limited. The whole menu is on the wall and there are a few signature item to hit on.
One thing I like is their vinegar. Fragrant, and taste pretty good.
One of the classic dish that must not miss if you dine in any hakka restaurant place is this Abacus. Well, their signature here is slightly different as it is Pumpkin Abacus Beads
Fried to perfection, not over cook, yet the handmade abacus is soft, chewy and a nice texture for a mouthful bite.
For a simple dish to go on we order their Bittergourd Soup. Bittergourd is not too overpowering yet it is just nice for those who cant really stand the strong taste of it. Mild enough to go along with other dishes. Finely Cut slices makes it nice to bite on the crunchy texture.
Was told to try on their Fried Asam Laksa @ RM 9. Asam laksa taste is prominent, yet more towards on the sourish side. Serve with two fresh prawns. A taste that I am not too sure how to enjoy for my first experience. Maybe will give it another chance again.
Friend Hokkien Noodle @ RM 17 (for 2 pax) is much better than the fried bee hoon.
We order quite alot of their house special drink. One which is Cincau Sarsi and Cucumber Asam (very refreshing drink)
If you are around this neighborhood and craving for abacus, do drop by to give it a try.
