Zhiweiguan @ Hangzhou China

zhiweiguan-hangzhou 3
I was blatantly excited when I encountered Zhiweiguan (知味观) that’s just a short walking distance away from Lingyin Temple (灵隐寺)! Zhiweiguan is famous for their dim sum and “dong puo rou” or braised pork in Hangzhou and I specifically chose Renhe Hotel knowing that it is close to the branch near Jiefang Road  (解放路).  Unfortunately, the Jiefang branch was under major renovation so it broke my dreams of eating dim sum there every morning for breakfast.     Continue reading

Lunch @ Sea View Hotel, Pangkor Island, Malaysia

We ate  lunch at Sea View Hotel on Pangkor Island as it brings back vague memories from my childhood.  Many many years ago, Sea View Hotel was one of the earlier hotels established on the island.  If you have traveled to Pangkor say 10, 15 years ago, chances are, you probably have stayed in the hotel before.

The hotel’s restaurant – Seaside Restaurant is literally by the sea with a superb view.

As we were there around 2pm, a lot of fish dishes were unavailable and we had to resort to something that we don’t normally order – sweet and sour fish.

The fish fillet pieces are deep fried – excellent tender fillet with a crispy coating, unfortunately spoiled by the sweet ad sour sauce which tasted completely artificial, as if the sauce came straight out from a chili sauce / tomato sauce bottle.  And it’s pricey for a not-very-big-portion at RM 35.

The simple vegetable stir fry (RM15) is ok but the oyster sauce is too thick for my liking.

The soup is not too bad, and  full of goodies like various kinds of vegetables, mushrooms and fish cake.

If you are lucky, you might be able to spot hornbills eating bread docilely off the table nearby.

Here’s a few pages from Sea View Hotel’s Restaurant menu.  The price seemed to be marked up for during Chinese New Year Period.

I am rather disappointed at the pricey & so-so lunch here.    I get it that things get marked up during Chinese New year but at least give me better food if you want to mark up the price! I was actually thinking we should be able to get some good & cheap seafood since we are on an island, but no, seafood in Sitiawan is better off.

Looks like I gotta look for a good seafood restaurant the next time I am on Pangkor Island.

Cameron Highlands Steamboat @ Kwan Kee

Cameron Highlands Steamboat @ Kwan Kee 16
We ate at Kwan Kee  steamboat restaurant (坤记) for dinner in Brinchang.  Eating steamboat is one of the best things you can do in Cameron Highlands. And it is not just any steamboat, it is CHARCOAL steamboat, something that seems to be very popular in Cameron Highlands compared to the electric counterparts on lower ground.  Brinchang is flooded with steamboat restaurants to choose from.   Continue reading

Double Boiled Soup @ Best Restaurant Ipoh (靓靓煲汤)

best restaurant ipoh 靓靓煲汤 12
The Best Restaurant (靓靓煲汤) in Ipoh specializes in double-boiled soup.  While it has an ambitious name, I think it does have a multitude of choices of double boiled soups.  Ranging from the opulent “Buddha Jumps Over the Wall” (佛跳墙) , the exquisite abalone & shark-fin soup, mid-ranged herbal soups and the every-day soups like old cucumber soup and lotus soup.   All the soups are prepared with specific ingredients for specific health benefits,  such as anti aging, or for the well being of the heart.   Continue reading
