When the dust has settled, another year gone...Ah Hah! Time for me to look through my photos and post pics from the "cold files". Hahaha....Long after it's been blogged by others, I take my own sweet time in putting this up, which is good in a way as it evokes pleasant memories of yet another floggers outing. Shall we go back in time...back to July 2007 when we went to Sek Yuen Restaurant, Jalan Pudu?
The old & original Sek Yuen, still serving diners after all these years
Braised Stuffed Duck - with ginkgo nuts, mushrooms and some other mushy stuff which I can't remember! The gravy was super yummy and this dish was cleared in no time and so was the gravy, all lapped up! Hahaha....
The Kar Heong vegetables was basically Chap Choy (mixed vegetables), a medley of mung bean noodles, dry lily bulbs, sweet bean curd slices, chives, shredded cabbage; fried with fu yue (fermented bean curd). This was one tasty dish as the fu yue gave it a very robust flavour.
The chicken skin with fish paste was nice though this dish couldn't really fill one's stomach. So I would say it's a wonderful (and pricey) snack instead. The skin was crispy and the fish paste was fresh which made this a good bite! Should go well with beer drinkers :o).The bill for this meal came up to be slightly higher than expected and we suspected that the owner might have been a bit upset with the 12 of us taking up a big table and ordering only 3 dishes. Prices - the braised stuffed duck (RM70/USD21), the chicken skin stuffed with fish paste (RM60/USD18) and the vegetable (RM15/USD4.50) which seem to be the only reasonably price dish. Anyone else can confirm the prices of the duck and the chicken dish??? Anyway, I still enjoyed myself and I wouldn't mind coming back here again once in a blue moon even if it means having to pay a bit more for nostalgia. Well, Chinese New Year is coming soon and this could be just the place to set the mood...
