Moon knew about this Restoran Chuan Kie 全记小菜馆 since she was still a secondary school's student, her good friend Jess told her about this place. At that time, the business was run at the old place. Jess and her family are regular customers of this restaurant, she said she sawAndy Lau 刘德华during one of her dinner session here. No kidding, if you are lucky enough, you may bump into any Hong Kong Stars who happen to have concert or performance at Genting. The surrounding wall plastered with ample photos of the restaurant's workers taken with the Hong Kong artists. Just that Moon and I do not have the luck, probably due to bad timing! *o* Don't remember when was our last visit, definitely more than 1 year ago! This trip to Genting with Cheong Chai (her cousin), Moon told me she was yearning for the signature dish of Restoran Chuan Kie, the thinly sliced, fried to crisp pork belly 香口五花肉, the outer layer of the meat is coated with caramelized syrup, some might not like it for being sweet and sticky! For us, we simply enjoy the CRISP, the SWEETNESS and the STICKINESS!! yumm..yummm..... Don't worry, that's the only sinful dish on the table, other dishes were actually quite healthy. *lol* Stir-fried baby green bean with garlic, this is another healthier signature dish of Chuan Kie, the bean is young, tender and crunchy!Yuxiang qiezi (魚香茄子) aka braised eggplantswith yuxiang , this used to be their signature, but as you can see from the picture, it was badly done, too dried and lack of appetising smell. Chinese spinachin superior stock 上汤芫菜, this dish has nothing significant, just thought of having more veggie, that's all! ;-)
This meal with 4 dishes costed around RM68 including white rice and Chinese tea as well as herba tea. Fair enough! If not mistaken, there are 2 Chuan Kie at Gohtong Jaya heading to Genting, we still prefer this one located at upper row.
Like the millions of others, we live a simple life. Moon is my wife. Moon and I have nothing really in common except we both possess the same passion for food. Come to taste, I must say that my taste bud is not as adventurous as hers, she likes to venture exotic food which I don’t! For me, Chinese food rocks!
While our jobs keep us extremely tied up and constrain us from exploring things that intrigue us, we feed on reading people’s blog. This also inspired us to start our very 1st blog. We kicked off with our first post on F-O-O-D, which naturally becomes the core topic of our blog. Nothing could be better, right!? No matter where we are what we do, we EAT. In modern day, food is far more than essential, food keeps all of us stay connected to each other, food becomes consolation to get nostalgic for lonely person who stays abroad….
Being a noob in this era, we are groping for improvement, we welcome your feedback and comments of goodwill. Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to our two other guest bloggers Ying and Joelle for their “mouthwatering” contribution.
