boo_licious: The teochew restaurant is also a must - such good food but you must book ahead.
Char Siew Bao: This Restaurant is ez to overlook cuz of its appearance... like a simple kopitiam with the cooking done in the front and only about 6 tables inside. But apparently some famous big names have dine there and their pictures are on the wall....
But do note that there are certain rules to observe when dining here:
Rule No.1: Reservation is a MUST!
Here is the contact number 06-2822353
That nite, a number of ppls who didn't make reservations earlier were denied entry. There are only 6 tables in the restaurant anyway so remember to book ahead!
Rule No.2: You have no power to decide on the style of cooking.
Basically, what you have to do is to order the fresh seafood from the counter and the cook will decide on the best style of cooking for you!
Rule No.3: Food Wastage is a big No No.
The taukeh is very particular with this but I dun think there will be any leftovers as the food were too delicious to be true. You will defnitely lick the plates clean happily.
Enough of the rules, back to food.
I ordered bittergourd, big prawns and oysters from the counter and these are the scrumptious dishes that the cook whip up for us...
Oyster nudles (RM10) which is heavenly good! All the VVIPs and politicians went all the way to Malacca just for a bowl of this yummy nudles with fresh succulent oysters.
And not to forget, the home-made killer sambal belacan to go with your nudles--insisted by the taukeh.
Next up is this stewed pork ribs wrapped in bittergourd (RM14). I luv the combination and the sauce! It was soooo good that we ordered another bowl of white rice to 'lou' the 'chap'.
The BIG prawns were steamed with ginger wine (RM15). Simple and very nicely done.
Every patron will be given a bowl of Oh-Ni (mashed yam with pumpkin and gingko nuts) as dessert, priced at RM7 which I think is rather expensive but worth the price! The mashed yam was really smooth, the best Oh-Ni I have tasted so far.
After licking all the plates clean, we dapao-ed some teochew braised duck, another signature dish from this restaurant. OMG! I regretted once I sank my teeth into the tender meat...I should have dapao-ed one WHOLE duck!
Here is the location:
This restaurant is located at Jonker Street, near Cheng Hoon temple.
