My family and I was in Cheras visiting my brother in law’s wife who gave birth recently. We went there on a weekday and by the time we reached the hospital, it was time for dinner. For convenience sake, we just walk to the shop lots across the Pantai Cheras hospital for our meal. Since it was dinner time, the restaurant was packed with patrons. The fish that we wanted to eat were out of stock; business must have been good.
We opt for some simple dishes like Assam Fish (Ma Yau, treadfin, senangin), kulo yok (sweet and sour pork), clay pot tofu and fried French beans. The total bill for 5 adults and 2 toddlers came up to be RM80. A little on the high side!
As usual we ordered Ku Lo yoke (sweet and sour pork) for the kids. This sweet and sour pork dish is quite nice.
We wanted a dish with gravy so that the kids can flood their rice with it. Clay pot tofu fits our requirement. The tofu is soft and the gravy is sweet and delicious.
The stir fried French beans have nice Wok hei (wok burnt) smell. I love the crunchy French Beans.
Somehow, the sweetness and sourness of the Nyonya Assam Fish are not very well balanced. The chef needs to improve on this. However, the fish is fresh and tasty.
