Canton-i

As my craving for shrimps is still not fulfilled, I went to Canton-i just for the prawns there.

Sauteed prawns with salted egg yolk - MYR38+ 10% service charge (MYR41.80 nett). The portion is very dainty as shown in the photo.

Does the portion look larger from this angle? There are 10 prawns that taste fresh. I like how I can just pop these prawns into my mouth without needing to remove the shells. The salty egg yolk is very rich but I just wish it is not sweet. Overall a very tasty dish. 

Fish slices in preserved vegetables (ham choy in cantonese) - MYR35+ (MYR38.50 nett). The fish slices are fresh and the broth is very flavourful with a special fragrant taste which we suspect is from 花椒 (hua jiao in mandarin, sichuan peppercorn, Zanthoxylum simulans). The preserved vegetables are too salty so we did not eat them after the few intial bites. 

Deep fried fish skins - MYR8.50+ (MYR9.35nett) - very crispy. They were gone in a blink of an eye.

Duck breast with Wanton Noodle - MYR16+ (MYR17.60 nett)

Prawns Dumplings with Wanton Noodle - MYR16+ (MYR17.60 nett)

My favourite Mango Sago - MYR10+ (MYR11 nett). It is very tasty with mango puree, mango cubes, sago and pomelo sacs (without artificial flavourings). There are no ice shavings in this dessert.

These two dishes are the reason I eat here.

We ordered rice and drinks as well so the total bill for 4 pax is MYR162.25 nett.

  5. LOL. I just finished reading Libby's Dragon-i and now it is Canton-i over here.
    I also think the food at Canton-i is better although both are still delicious to me. The Canton-i choices are more and slightly cheaper.

    I have started enjoying this Deep fried fish skins which is a trend now.
