Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Chinese -

WHY GO

Qual­ity pork-free Can­tonese fare plus a prime lo­ca­tion right next to One Utama re­tail ther­apy makes Zuan Yuan a popular pit stop.

TATLER TIPS

The menu fea­tures the spec­trum of Can­tonese sta­ples with some lo­cal in­spi­ra­tions, along with an un­ex­pected sec­tion of Teochew spe­cial­i­ties that prove most de­li­cious.

• You can’t go wrong with the stir-fried garoupa fil­let that’s first bat­tered and deep-fried, then tossed in rich mor­eish salted egg yolk, and deftly sea­soned with a hint of chilli and curry leaves.

• In­stead of the usual roasted sta­ples, try the Teochew duck that’s braised in dark soy sauce till ten­der and fra­grant. Be sure to or­der some steamed rice to mop up the sauce.

• Zuan Yuan serves home­made taufu fa, aka sweet bean­curd pud­ding. But be sure to or­der ahead as it is pre­pared fresh and takes about 20 min­utes.
