We wanted something not so heavy for dinner and were all gamed to dig into some heart-warming Hakka dishes, so the hubs brought us to Ying Ker Lou @ The Gardens 2 Saturday evenings ago. It was our 2nd time at Ying Ker Lou and this time, it was much more satisfying and everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly.
These are what we picked from the menu this time:
Shun Pun Zi (Stir fried yam balls), which was very flavorful because of the fried dried shrimps used to prepare this Hakka delicacy.
Yummy fried rice for my fried rice craze eldest daughter...
Hong Kong style flat rice noodles aka Chee Cheong Fun...
The mil's Lui Cha with brown rice. Lui Cha is a healthy Hakka dish consisting of an assortment of chopped veggie, nuts, fried anchovies and refreshing mint broth. You can opt for brown rice which is a healthier alternative to white rice.
Chicken cooked in Chinese Rice Wine @ RM39 a pot, which was my order that night. I love this wine soup and can never get enough of this dish, though I was fed a total of 3 months with it during my 3 confinements :D
I think it's pretty expensive @ RM39 a pot and there were not more than 10 small pieces of chicken. With such a small portion, I could only have 2 small pieces of bony chicken to gnaw on. How pathetic eh? I think half the price of this dish went towards payment of shop rental.
For 3 adults and 3 kis, this is the burn to the hubs' wallet. Expensive?
As it was a pretty light dinner, our tummies were rumbling again about an hour later after burning off some calories shopping and walking around the mall. At the request of my fast-food deprived girls, their daddy took away McD and some sinfully delish Crepe cakes before we left The Gardens and had a late supper of carbs at home.
