More Alcohol @ Restoran Wei Sun, Bandar Menjalara, Kepong


Gosh! I'm on a roll...yet another alcohol linked post. Hahaha...Anyway, I had tried this place much earlier (like last year!) when bro whisked mom and I off for lunch right after fetching us from KLIA. Since we had spent two months in USA, bro thought that we could do with some Malaysian Chinese food. I had no idea where he was taking us to but he mentioned that he had eaten at Wei Sun before and enjoyed the food.

Arriving at the restaurant, we were given a colorful menu leaflet to order from. All I could do was just look at the pics as I couldn't read the Chinese characters imprinted on it. Since bro has been to the place before, we left the ordering to him. Bro was excited in seeing us try the Drunken Loh Mee (yes...meaning liquor). Seems that the broth has the added secret ingredient of 2 types of chinese wine to it. Hic! Here I go again....hahaha....One type of wine is poured and boiled together with the broth while the other one is poured when it is ready to be served.

Well, judging from the pic of the Drunken Loh Mee from the menu, I was excited too - looking at all the prawns, abalone slices, chicken and other assorted goodies....but then what came to the table looked like this instead....

Errr...nothing like the pic on the menu?
Wah! Looks so different from the menu....This is the Drunken Loh Mee(RM25) after removing its "make up" and "accessories", hahahahaha.....

The special stuff in the noodles
Anyway, I did manage to fish some of the ingredients, (definitely not as generous as they showed in the menu) and found some ham too! While the noodles and special ingredients were just average, the egg swirled gravy-soup laden with wine was absolutely delish. So, it made this dish different enough for Wei Sun to claim it as one of their signature dishes. We enjoyed it and finished the noodles and slurped everything else up.

Other dishes from Wei Sun
We also tried other dishes....which we just pointed to the photos on the menu, having no idea what these dishes are called.

- I must say I loved the fried long beans with pork belly slices. Though it was on the sweet side, it was very fragrant and the pork slices were simply delicious as it was well marinated.
- The recommended fried la la vermicelli was above average but came with such minuscule sized la la (without the shell) which robbed us from truly enjoying this as the vermicelli had great wok hei but fell short on the la la expectation. Of course, if this was just plain old Fried Vermicelli, there would be no such expectations and we would have given this dish more praise.
- Now, I have always loved fried lotus root - Wei Sun has this fried cheese version which we ordered and somehow, we found the taste pretty "funky". It had more coconut taste to it rather than cheese. It tasted funny and the sticky gooey sauce that clung to the lotus root slices made it looked "different" too. I wouldn't say it was bad but it's more of a taste that is acquired.

Still, I prefer the one on the ice-cream instead.
Not a fan of starchy noodles.
