Puchong can be regarded as a food haven for many. You can easily find almost all type of food whether it is Cafe, Chinese, Japanese and so forth. Best Restaurant To Eat was recently invited to this fringe area of Bandar Bukit Puchong to review a Chinese Tai Chow Style at the Popular Food Court Restaurant located at 28, Jalan BP 6/12, Bandar Bukit Puchong 47100 Puchong Selangor. Scroll down for the direction to this place.
This Popular Food Court Restaurant is a coffee shop style setup that offers no frill dining to its neighbourhood customers.
The Chef has many specialty dishes up his sleeves, but choose to serve this few dishes of his favourites for us to savor in for the evening.
The first dish is the Claypot Tilapia (you can also order either the Red Snapper or the Pak Sook Koong River Fish). According to the Chef; the most important criteria to cook this fish; is that it must not have that fishy taste; as the whole fish is cook in the Clay pot; The fish with its’ special cut is first laid into the clay pot and together with the special broth which consists of garlic, spring onions, ginger, scallion, shallots, chillies and fried pork lard are simmered in the clay pot. Once it is cooked; it is sprinkled with coriander and ready for the table.
Next, comes a dish for fans of Petai which is called the Stir Fried Petai Sotong. Although a tad of oil was evident, the sauce was very well paired with the white bouncy texture of the white squid. While biting into the Petai beans which were blended well with sauce combination of the belacan, onions, dried shrimp and basil leaves do enhance the full flavour of the White Sotong. This Petai dish is best eaten with the white rice.
This is then followed by the Stir Fried Pork Slice – This dish has some resemblance to the dish that we had during our trip to Bukit Tinggi, Pahang which is quite popular. Turn out the Chef has a stint at one of the popular restaurant there. The pork belly is thinly sliced and fried to a crisp before stir frying with the special sauce.
The last dish is a simple Clay Pot Kangkung, but what is special about this dish is the ingredients that are used to stir fried this vegetable. Instead of the using the common Belacan or Foo Yue (fermented bean curd) for this Kangkung; the chef uses a special Hong Kong shrimp paste (Ham Har) together with Salted Tenggiri Fish to cooked this dish. The result, it has a strong aroma and flavours that are paired well with the Kangkung.
