A Birthday Dinner for Mom in Law at Wah Hong Restaurant, Chai Leng Park, Prai.

Wah Hong was just a corner coffee shop with very few stall more than 20 years ago. The owner made the right choice of turning it into an upper class restaurant and business has been good ever since. I was back in Butterworth recently and my sister in law suggested that we celebrate my mom in law birthday earlier. She ordered the 8 course meals! The price of an eight course meals like this are rather reasonable in Butterworth compared to KL.

As usual the first course is the cool platter (sorry, photo not very clear). The crispy fried special spring rolls are nice. I like the abalone like shell fish with chilli. I can really remember the rest of the dish in it, as you know normally whenever the first course arrived, everyone would quickly snapped up everything in it.

The shark fin soup has a good combination of natural sweetness and crabmeat flavours in it. Nice, but unfortunately the servings were just for 10 bowls only!

The cereal prawn was served with generous amount of cereal and butter in it. This dish is very aromatic and I just love the creamy taste. The prawn is fresh and has springy texture! Taste real good when eaten with a spoonful of cereals that comes with it.

Next was the yin yong chicken. One is crispy fried with belachan (fermented prawn paste) and the other one is marmite chicken. Both these dishes seem to be very popular in Butterworth. Damm tasty!

Sorry about this Assam Siakap Fish (Giant Sea perch) photo. I forgot to take before we started eating. I guess the picture paint a thousand words, everything gone except the bones! Thumbs up!

This is fried crispy longevity noodles, with Cantonese style gravy. The mee (noodle) is crispy and the starchy gravy is good. My kids love it so much! I went for second helpings! I missed out on some of the other dishes as I was busy catching up with my relatives and also eating at the same time. But overall it is a very satisfactory meal.
