Eric's Deli @ Hartamas Shopping Centre.


My third time visiting Eric's Deli. Yar, you got it right, the infamous restaurant run by the popular Hong Kong celebrity, Mr Eric. Despite all the bad reviews and comments bout his food, I still love to frequent this place just for the desserts.

Mr. Eric and his frens

FYI, this restaurant has a separate dessert bar which prepares quite an extensive range of hot 'tongsui', puddings and icy cold shaved ice. I tried their Mango sai mai loh (Mango shaved ice) which was really good! I think they first iced the mango juice, which is then finely shaved and serve with sago and mango chunks. Absolutely my fave refreshing dessert!

This time round I tried their Mix Fruit shaved ice (around RM5-6) which came with loads of mango chunks, honeydew, watermelon and papaya pieces, the ice were thinly shaved with intense milky flavour...yummy!


Char siew bao tried their Mango Pomelo dessert (around Rm5) which looked abit sad. It came with mango juice (?), sago and pomelo. We should just stick to their shaved ice desserts on our next visit.
Felt abit gluttony though we just had our dinner so we ordered the onion pancake (RM8) recommended by the funny Hongkie waitress. The verdit: Totally not worth the price. They only served us 2 little palm size pancakes. Crispy but too greasy to my liking.
Just wondering if anyone of you have tried Eric's hot food? Any good recommendations?

Location: Ground Floor, Hartamas Shopping Centre.

Their dim sums are not bad, although a tad too pricey for me. But you MUST try their Steamed Pork Ribs. I luv it very very much! ;-)

jason said...

Been hearing about it but have no idea where it is

boo_licious said...

Yeah, their dim sum is nice but only available during lunchtime. Heard that they have steamboat or hotpot at night.

tankiasu: Ok noted! I wanted to try their dimsums too that nite not knowing that they only serve dimsums till 5pm. I tot u like chicken only?

jason: hmm...hartamas area might sound abit alien to you? there are alot of good eateries though abit far from cheras. Nvrmind, can always go for food hunt during weekends mar.

boo_licious: Yup, read from their menu that a seafood hotpot for 2 person is priced at RM75...@_@ so expensive. But i noticed that most of the patrons ordered hotpot for dinner.

Xiu Long Bao said...

wmw:hmm...the hot food that i had before were so-so only. But boo and tankiasu luv their dimsums so i guess it is triable.

Hmm...I guess must make a trip there for dimsum during lunch time. If not mistaken, their hotpot is szechuan type.

Xiu Long Bao said...

jian:

OMG, ur doc sure faint when u go for medical checkup...LoL at all the high cholestrol food.

precious pea:
We also wan to go! Can tag along?
You can choose to have 2 soups in one pot, herbal and spicy szechuan.Heard dat it is not bad.

Kenny Mah said...

Wow, based on the comments, I just might go for the shaved ice desserts and not the main courses...

Sometimes it's good to find out what's good in a place which may have a bad reputation overall but have a couple of gems here and there...

Jian said...

haha my version honeydew lou is much easier and less fattening : P lolz...so far haven't been for a medical check up. Got also is last years story ady....hahaha...i tot got other place selling shaved ice desserts...like the one near times square wan...every nite pack with ppl.

Xiu Long Bao said...

kenny mah: Hope you luv the desserts! Gonna revisit for the shaved ice too...slurrrppp!

jian:There are alot of good places that sell finely shaved ice desserts in KL and PJ. wat is the name of the shop in times sqaure? sounds interesting!

Jian said...

Its not exactly in time square. I had to walk down from Times Square to a row of shop houses (about 5 minutes walk). Its at the corner wan. lolz sorry lar kenot remember the name.

hahaha but still i still like classic ais kacang and PG chendol. Unbeatable in taste,price and heritage. lolz....

Eric should reseach more before open this business. He named it Deli and this place is no a Deli. Deli is cooked food that is low cost and serve over the counter for to eat in or takeaway. Price is too high also and workers is so untrain.

Return business is not to be.
