Lotus roots soup.....................................................Bangkuang Char (Jui Hu Char)
Bak Kian (Meat rolls).................................................Chendol
I was in Subang Jaya area last night and my brother in law took me to this family restaurant that serves home cook Penang Nyonya food. It was around 7.30pm when we arrive at Home Cook Recipe Restaurant which is located in Puchong. There is already a good crowd in the restaurant and the few big round tables were occupied. We have to settle for two wooden table joined together to seat five adults and 3 children. There are many restaurants in this new row of shop lots which are located on the slip road that connects to the front of Puchong Giant. Home Cook Recipe Restaurant is actually located not far away from the Telok Pulai Bak Kut Teh Restaurant. We ordered Kerabu Paku Chai (Chili Fern shoots, RM6), Bangkuang Chai (Jiu Hu Char, Fried Turnips, RM6), Assam Stingray (RM15), Pork Trotters (RM16), Steamed Eggs (RM5), Lotus roots Soup (1 serving, RM5.50), Bak Kian (Meat roll, lorbak, RM10), 4 x chendol (Coconut milk dessert) for dessert and 7 big rice. They have small servings of dishes; therefore you can try many varieties of food here. The Kerabu Paku is fresh and I taste the natural sweetness of the vegetable. The bangkuang char (fried turnips) tasted ok only but the Assam Stingray (Tamarind chilli Stingray) is good. I like the sours and spicy taste of this dish! The pork trotters were cooked with white radish and they are very tender. I enjoy gnawing at the tendons at the trotters’ joints. The steamed eggs are for the kids. It has minced meat in it and I can taste the natural sweetness from this meat. My daughter needs to have soup with her rice so we ordered the lotus root soup for her. I didn’t try this soup, so can’t comment! The bak kian taste a bit like the crab meat rolls. I can taste the cilantro used and it has a nice aroma. The chendol which was accompanied by sweet corn, red beans and sprinkle with kacang (ground peanuts) taste good after the hot and spicy meal. They normally serve the chendol before the dishes, so it you want it as your dessert then you will have to inform the waitress. The total bill came up to be RM91.50. Address :

Looks so delicious and so cheap! Why all the places I went in KL so expensive one...and not nice at all? But I don't think the food here is like home-cooked - restaurants like to claim that but somehow, they're not the same.
