Too much

A few days before I visited Pu Tien at Gardens with my friends, I ate lunch there with my spouse on a weekend. I over ordered and had to take the whole portion of fried rice home for dinner.

Default appetisers that cost MYR3++ (10% service charge 6% GST - MYR3.50 nett) each. Pickled jicama that tastes like the jicama slices have been marinated in orange cordial. Some kind of beans (could be Ping Zebra Lima Bean - Phaseolus lunatus) that have been braised. Surprisingly when I was there on a weekday with my friends, we were not served these appetisers.

The chili sauce that is popular there.

Cabbage fried rice - MYR19.90++ (MYR23.20 nett). Knowing that we would not be able to finish all the dishes that we ordered, I took this whole portion home for dinner.

Oyster Omelette - MYR23.90++ (MYR27.85 nett). Very crispy and not too oily with many oysters though I don't know where the eggs are because they are all deep fried until so crispy. I took about 20% of this dish home for dinner.

Fish Soup - MYR46.90++ (MYR54.70 nett). We ordered this soup before at the One Utama outlet but in extra small portion. This time there is no extra small portion on the menu so this regular portion was quite a lot for the two of us. Must be very careful when eating the fish because of its bones. As I have mentioned previously, the soup is white due to the fish and not milk.

We also redeemed a foc pig's trotters (2 pieces) worth MYR27.80++ (MYR32.40 nett) using a promotional opening day voucher (expiry date is 20 Aug 2017).

Sweet potato with pumpkin sauce dessert - MYR8.90++ (MYR10.40 nett). Somehow there is a coconut taste in the pumpkin sauce but still nice. Very small portion in a big plate.

Side view. I ate the mint leaves too.

Over ordered so the bill is MYR123.15 nett for 2 pax.

  1. The sweet potato dessert is very beautiful. It may be small but I am sure it's yummy.

    Yes, those are definitely a lot of food for only two of you. I will usually decline those tidbits when I dine in a restaurant but my boys will insists to keep at least a plate of peanuts >_<

  4. I think the restaurants would only serve the appetisers during peak dining hours when the diners had to endure longer wait.

    I learnt from my wife that those fish soups which is milky white after adding evaporated milk is a modern day short cuts esp those Fish Head Noodles. She pointed out that the traditional correct way is to boil certain fish bones overnight until the soup turns naturally white!

  9. Aha you can go to Pu Tien often now! Is the cabbage fried rice anything special?

    That chilli sauce tastes great with the oyster omelette.
