WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Chinese -

This award-win­ning restau­rant is the place to sat­isfy your crav­ing for Fu­jian-in­spired culi­nary com­forts that are big on qual­ity, fresh­ness and heart.

The Pu­tien bean curd with Chi­nese cab­bage soup is a great start to the feast. Served in a big black pot, the com­fort­ing broth is nour­ish­ing and opens up the ap­petite at the same time, due to the bits of gin­ger and lemon­grass we found swim­ming to­gether with the gen­er­ous amounts of bean curds, Chi­nese cab­bage and strips of pork meat.

Bite-sized and spar­tan-look­ing, the stir-fried yam doesn’t look like much, but the magic hap­pens when you bite into it. Crispy on the out­side with hints of honey sweet­ness on its crust giv­ing way to the pow­dery tex­ture within, this sim­ple dish be­lies its sim­plic­ity and re­wards with its yam-my good­ness.

For carbs, opt for the Miche­lin star-win­ning fried Heng Hwa bee hoon. It is in­fused with flavour cour­tesy of a rich stock of pork bones, chicken and ten other in­gre­di­ents. The gen­er­ous gar­nish of prawns, clams, crispy seaweed, veg­eta­bles and ground­nuts play sec­ond fid­dle to the hand-milled and sun­dried ver­mi­celli – ev­ery fine strand is fluffy, silky and whole and gives a very re­ward­ing mouth­feel and taste.
