I realised most of the times, the good makan places always ‘hidden’ and they are difficult to locate until someone brought you there. Like this one, it was at the heart of JB city centre but was hidden away from the main streets.
Braised pork with ‘mui choy’– The dark ‘mui choy’ was sweet and the pork which contains 50% layer of fat in each pieces are so well-absorbed with the gravy. I can easily eat this with bowls of white rice. Very appetising!
Fried chicken with mango slices– Lots of meat in the chicken, and it’s so crunchy when you bit on the golden fried skin. The meat slowly melt into your mouth with the sweet and sour mango slices and gravy. Another appetising dish and reminds me of the similar Thai dish.
The ‘Four Heavenly Kings’ – Brinjal, kankong, petai and ladies’ fingers. Not sure if other places recognised the name as this is what it’s typically called here in JB. I especially love the petai which was cooked without chilli where you feel the natural taste of the crunchy petai. I like the lady’s fingers too!
Claypot shark meat with ginger and white wine. OK, this dish tells all, it’s the main one! The shark meat are cooked in a claypot mixed with white wine and lots and lots of ginger. The white meat is not that hard as it’s used to be and it’s deliciously prepared in an healthy way!
