Sunday dinner, 1st April 2007
Read about this restaurant in The Star, and it surely did not dissapoint ... Good fish (Steamed Patin is very boney though, so becareful!), fresh prawns in vietnamese sauce (Sort of like a spicey buttery sauce), and simple but good To-fu steamed with fried choi-poh on the top. Yummy! And good value at 50 bucks too :-)
Excerpt from The Star ... "WHILE a family-operated restaurant is a common concept, not many can claim to have worked together for two decades or extended beyond its original restaurant.
Ng Pow Men and his wife Loh Kim Yok, both 43, opened their first restaurant called Restoran Soon Chui in Klang 12 years ago, followed by their second restaurant named Restoran Song River in the same town seven years later.
“Both our restaurants serve Chinese and Thai style food but each has its own speciality,” said Loh, who takes care of the restaurants’ customers while Ng handles the food and menu.
Her brother Loh Wai Kheng, 39, is Restoran Soon Chui’s chef while her brother-in-law Yau Wai Chang, 37, heads the kitchen of Restoran Song River.
“The four of us have been working together for 20 years in the Chinese restaurant business. We previously worked under a different boss to gain some experience, before opening our own restaurant in 1995.
“My husband and I also worked in Germany for about three years, where he worked as the head chef of a Chinese restaurant there,” said Loh. "
