For Chinese Only.
Alex is Chinese. Thus it was not surprising his eyes light up when the boss at the restaurant suggested Mui Choy Kau Yoke (梅菜扣肉) or braised pork belly steamed with preserved mustard greens – a kind of Chinese cabbage or bok choy.
The dish will always make a Chinese drool not just because it is a delicious porky dish but because it is from an ancient recipe. People are always happy to make a connection with tradition or heritage, I think.
The traditional Hakka dish is normally slow or home cooked and not always available at any restaurant. The total amount for all three dishes, Lala fried with bee hoon, Oyster Omellete (Oh Chien) and Mui Choy Kau Yoke came up to a reasonable RM 63, according to Alex who bought. Thanks, Alex.
I was telling Alex that I appreciate the restaurant for not pushing pricey dishes such as fish and prawns, unlike so many others.
