When my parents were in KL last Sunday, we had lunch at Sekinchan Famous Yu Tao Mui Restaurant at Happy Garden. We were first timers at this restaurant. We were a tad apprehensive when we arrived at the restaurant as we were the only patrons there. We were skeptical about the quality and price of the food as the restaurant was empty, except for their staff. Since it was already late in the afternoon and my parents were rushing to return to Ipoh, we sat down and ordered food anyway.
We downed our skepticism and prejudice along with the food the moment we tasted the delish dishes! All the dishes that we ordered were very tasty.
The first dish that arrived was curry fish head.
The deep fried octopus (on the foreground) and fried homemade fish paste were superb. The deep fried octopus was achingly crispy, full of texture and flavors. The fried fish paste was genuinely homemade as you can feel and taste the flesh of the fish in every wholesome bite.
Braised tofu with mushrooms and assortment of seafood.
The fried vermicelli has generous amounts of prawns, squids, bean sprouts, pork slices and onions. The fried rice was equally good flavored generously with baby shrimps.
Steamed egg with minced pork - the girls' favorite.
While waiting for the dishes to arrive, the foodie hubs walked a few shops away to Restaurant Mooi Mooi to take away the best siew yoke (roast pork) in the whole wide world! The siew yoke with crackling skin literally melts in your mouth. Restaurant Mooi Mooi, a corner coffee shop which is semi worn down carries a certain rustic charm, if you don't mind the less-than-perfect tables, chairs, cutlery and interior. The operator also sells char siu and roast chicken but the claim to fame, crowd-puller is the top notch melt-in-the-mouth crackling skin siew yoke.
