Golden BBQ Steamboat Restaurant

February 28, 2008

This is actually a back dated post. Jack and I re-visited Golden BBQ Steamboat Restaurant somewhere in Nov, 2007. It’s a good place to visit when you are craving for food. It offers buffet style steamboat and BBQ. Eat all you can, just don’t waste the food.

The restaurant owner combines 3 historical houses to become a restaurant.

They prepare some ready food for those who are really hungry ;P

These are the ingredients for the steamboat and BBQ.

They also prepare a pot of braised chicken feet. Besides, a pot of “char ye dan” (tea egg) is also available.

Here are some assorted fish balls, and crab sticks.

Some processed pig’s skin, abalone mushrooms, quail’s eggs and hot dogs.

Some green fresh vegetables…

Prawns, cuttle fish and marinated squids for BBQ.

Sour and spicy sauce definitely is a must.

Our first round of steamboat is ready! We had our second, and third round, plus the BBQ. 😛

Dried longan helps to improve blood circulation, improve heart efficiency and reduce stress and tension.

Tai Fuu Chinese Restaurant

February 23, 2008

A week before CNY, my brother in law brought five of us (Jack & I, parents in law and grandma in law) to have a dinner at Tai Fuu Chinese Restaurant.

Tai Fuu Chinese Restaurant is located at Jalan Tengah, Bayan Lepas, next to the Bank Pertanian. Previously, it was Rush Jimmy, a restaurant serving Western food & Oriental food. Jack & I used to dine at Rush Jimmy, and we love their western food. It’s cheap, big serving, and tasty. But ever since Tai Fuu took over the place, we haven’t pay them a visit. This is the first time.

Since there were total of six persons, we were recommended to order their Chinese New Year set. The set consisted of 7 dishes. It’s inclusive of rice, herbs tea, and soup.

This is the corn soup served at the very beginning. The soup is quite flavorful. I believe it’s been boiled/simmered for long hours with pork ribs. I could taste the sweetness.

This is their signature noodles. It looks normal, but it’s very fragrant. I could taste the “wok hei”. That’s the reason while the photo was taken, a big portion of the noodles had already been grabbed away.

Thai style steam fish, very sourish. The pomfret was so fresh and sweet.

My favourite dish, Thai style prawns. They were very generous for the serving. I alone already finished 6 big prawns, hehe… 😛 I like it the most among the all.

This is the chicken roll. A lot of ingredients rolled up in the chicken thigh. I could taste the lup cheong (Chinese style sausage), minced prawns and minced pork. Anyway, the combination brings a weird flavour caused by the lup cheong. It’s not to my liking. 😦

The kar heong bean curd dish. It tastes average.

The stir-fried mixed vegetables. It’s a simple ordinary dish that I like.

The whole set of meal cost for RM108 nett. There’s no extra charges on the additional rice, or top up for the tea and soup.

Their phone no: 04-6437885 & 016-4227885.
