Restaurant Hakka

Mighty Kan is back to Malaysia and we have no choice but to organize gathering to welcome him home (although he back only for 2 days)

So for dinner, we dashed ourselves to Restaurant Hakka just opposite of Pavilion. Next to Restaurant Hakka is Novotel Hotel. So it was easy for everyone to find the restaurant.

As it was a wonderful day, we wanted to sit at open air place but Mighty Kan wanted air-condition area so we please him and settle ourselves at the air-conditioned room. For those who wanted to eat steamboat, it was advisable to sit outside so you can enjoy the city breeze...

Ok....now the introduction of food!!

We settle down and each of us are to order 1 dish. Kee Souh (Soh Kee aka Aunty Kee)in charge of vegetable, zhe quan in charge of tofu, nicholas in charge of sotong (because he look very sotong), fook weng in charge of ordering chicken (not prostitute) and me in charge of pork....Below is the conversation of ordering the food:

~translated from Mandarin~

Waitress: May I take your order?
Zhe Quan: Ok, I want to order claypot tofu...
Kee Souh: Wait, wait....what the different between claypot tofu and braised special claypot?
Waitress: Oh special claypot tofu include vegetable and siew york...
Kee Souh: Eh Zhe Quan, cancel claypot tofu and take this braised special claypot.
Me: Ok, I want Hakka pork rib. Come Hakka restaurant sure need Hakka food ma..
Fook Weng: Lemon Chicken...is that ok Kee Souh...
Kee Souh: Eh, dun ask me la...you all decide ma...I am ok with everything!!
Nicholas: I want erm erm this sotong (pointing at menu)
Kee Souh: No No No...We want 'chiu imm' sotong...
Everyone: Har chiu imm?
Waitress: oh salted fried sotong?
Kee Souh: Ya Ya...
Everyone: Kee Souh, you in charge of vege le....so what vege you want?
Kee Souh: Erm...erm....aiya, chin chai la....give me 'yau choi' enough la...

See....at last, Kee souh order for us!!!

Ok...Basically the food is delicious but a bit pricy.

Yau Choi - taste very different from other restaurant and the vege is fresh. RM 20 for this plate of vege is totally a ripped off

Hakka Pork Rib - RM 4.50 per pieces. It taste normal to me. Taste a bit like marmite pork.

Lemon Chicken - RM 22. Very normal and nothing to proud off...Any restaurant can cook better than this.

Salted sotong - RM 22. The taste is just nice. Very chewy, crispy and springy...But lack of 'wok hei'...

Braised claypot Tofu with siew york - RM 18. For me this is the best dishes for the day. The ingredient is fresh and cook with perfect combination. The roasted pork added special aroma to this dishes and with a little bit of 'hua tiu' liquor, this claypot tofu is one of the best I ever tasted.

White rice - RM 1.50 per bowl. So pricy!!!

Total damage to our wallet: RM 150 (including titbits, tea, towel, government charge and service charge)
