Walked by the very lively Hakka Republic as we were walking in ... Realised this was actually my first time in the much blogged- and talked-about Menara Hap Seng in KL.
This is Elegant Inn ... venue of our Oldham Hall mini-reunion (That means you ... NWJ, WL, RF, myself and our host ET - TC joined us for drinks after). A nicely decorated restaurant, which has elegant and not so chintzy furnishings and decor!
The starters - Soft shell crab and white bait, very delicious ... and a fantastic HK-style soup, with the pork ribs served on a plate, which simply fell off the bone. Amazing!
As I had just returned back from the UAE that evening, we had MORE porky dishes of course ... Good spare ribs to continue the evening!
Next came my 2 favourite dishes (After the wonderful and flavoursome soup!) ... Pork patties (Infused with ham yue and sah kok) and US rib-eye pan-fried with garlic slices.
To balance the meal off ...we had some veges too!
The To-fu dish as well as the Yee Mee with Seafood were equally good too - Hong Kong style, and got a thumbs up by our resident expert, RF!
Time for dessert ... Barley fu-chuk in Soya milk (Beancurd-skin), and a light Ma-lay koh.
Overall - an excellent meal, made better by the fact that it was our 23 year Oldham Hall reunion ... We watched our national hero, Lee Chong Wei, demolish Chen Long of China in the semifinals of the London Olympics .. And, thanks to ET for the wonderful treat :-)
