Talking about food in JB will not be complete if this restaurant is not mentioned. One of the finest restaurant and well-known among the chinese community in JB, it has a few branches thoroughout JB and been around the business for a very long time!


This one which I’ve visited is located at Taman Sentosa, which is nearer to the JB CIQ. Usually packed on weekends and even weekdays, they are famous for their crabs. Anyway, too bad we didn’t have crabs for the night but still, have ordered some of their best dishes….


Fried prawns with sesame…..best eaten with ‘mantao’ (pau with no fillings). Put one of two fried prawns in the mantao and you have a good time chewing the sweet prawns with taste of sesame seeds all over your mouth and tastebud! šŸ™‚


Here’s their specialty toufu. It’s very delicious though I can’t figured out what’s that ‘fungus’ like green thing covering half of the toufu.


And here’s one of my favourites…. half-fat pork braised with yam. This one sure whets up your appetiser! The pork and yam simply absorbed all the great and delicious gravy which was so fragrance when bit on it. You can easily order extra bowl of rice just because of this dish!

Pekin Restaurant is located at : – 38, Jalan Baidu Lima, Taman Sentosa 80150 JB.
