Chai Leng Park Great Wellesley Old Cinema Restaurant –3rd Day CNY Famly Meal

It was the third day of Chinese New Year and my family decided eats out for lunch. My dad loves the Curry Fish Head dish in Great Wellesley Restaurant, so we decided to have out little family gathering there. Since there were 15 of us, we opt for two separate medium size table so that everyone can dine comfortable. Here is the review of the dishes we ordered,
Curry Fish Head They use Grouper (Kerapu) fish head for this dish. The fish is rather large and full of meat. The curry is creamy with a little tinge of sourness. I flooded my white rice with the favourful curry gravy. Nice! Both tables finished all the fish head!
Braised Tofu with Mushroom This is my daughter’s favourite dish. She virtually ate all her rice with this dish alone. The tofu has very nice and smooth texture. It is garnished with some crunchy lettuce. This is another nice and simple dish!
Cashew Nuts Chicken The kids love this dish. The diced chicken meat is fried with cashew nuts, capsicum (bell pepper), button mushroom, onion and carrot. I can’t figure out what sauce they use but it tasted unique to me.
Stir Fried Tau Miu (Sweet Pea Sprouts) The serving is rather large, nothing to shout but the tau miu (Sweet Pea Sprouts) is very crunchy and fresh!
Kung Po Frogs (Thin Kai Kung Po) We actually ordered this dish for one table only because we thought that the kids would not want to eat frogs. However when the dish arrived the kids tucked in into it and love the taste so much. All the frogs are gone in a jiffy! I think they should not deep fry the frogs before cooking it with the kung po gravy. Deep frying made the frog meat very tough, took away all the natural taste and sweetness.
We also ordered two bowls of Shark Fin soup for the kids but I did not take the picture. It cost RM10 per bowl. The total bill for 15 people (two table of similar dish) came up to be around RM240.

So long did not eat 'dao miaw' already. And the frog looks so tasty. I thought fried the frog only will make it more fragant?
