My dad’s birthday actually happened last month. We went for a simple dinner at a restaurant nearby – Good Fortune @ Batu 14, Puchong (because everyone was feeling too lazy to travel far). The place is your standard Chinese restaurant that serves a variety of ‘dai chow’ dishes.
The server recommended a blend of barley and pumpkin juice to quench our thirst. It was served chilled in a large jug. I don’t know if it’s because of the ice, but the drink was severely diluted. It was like drinking mild, pumpkin flavoured water.
It has become a tradition for my family to order fried squid every time we eat out at a Chinese restaurant, because my brother and I love it. This time around we had salted egg yolk squid. Deep fried and battered in curry leaves, birds eye chilli and not forgetting the umami salted egg yolk, the dish’s portion was quite generous for the four of us. The squid is quite fresh and juicy on the inside while being crispy and well-flavoured on the outside. I’ve had better versions of it, but this isn’t too bad.
Salted chicken in wine. We were not anticipating the large portions and there was a lot left over, so we ‘da bao‘ed some home for tomorrow’s meal.
Fish steamed in garlic and soy sauce. Also very huge portion. Or maybe we’re just small eaters. This was easily the most expensive item on the menu. Taste-wise it was good, but not great. Other than the above we also ordered a stir-fried vegetable dish. The bill came up to RM100++, which was expensive in my opinion for four dishes.
