Claypot crab rice, that was my first meal back in KL, after an absence of 3 months.
Blessed my girlfriends for entertaining my request for claypot crab rice at Siu Siu Restaurant (小小飯店). You know you have found an amazing gem of friends, when they pick you up, and drive you to the destination of your wish list.
At the restaurant, no menu was given to us. How to order lah. Ordering without menu, shows that one is a true food connoisseur, my friend says. I nearly forgotten the challenges that I usually face at Chinese-Chinese restaurants, being a non-Chinese literate, Chinese.
The restaurant manager gave us his recommendations, and we decide from there. By the way, there is menu on board, all-Chinese-no-English … what a typical Chinese restaurant! *breakintoacoldsweat*
Claypot crab rice (RM 76). I wasn’t blown away, it was just alright. I felt that it was more of a claypot rice and stir-fried crab in some sort of caramelised-sauce. I actually prefer my usual, humble claypot chicken rice more. One try is enough.
Stir-fried squid with salted egg yolk (RM 15). I like this dish the most! Salted egg yolk-dishes never fail, agree?
Ching long / Green dragon vegetable (RM 15). Good dish, but it’s priced the same as a squid dish. Is ching long vege that expensive?
Char siew – barbecued pork (RM 12). Siu siu is well known for their char siew dish, I was told. It’s good lah, for porky-lover. I immediately think about Ah Meng and Aaron.
Total bill: RM 124 for a pax of 3.
Their 2016 CNY operation dates as per photo above, do take note if you are planning a visit soon.
