Has since closed and replaced with Duck King Express.
Emperor Q Casual Chinese Restaurant & Café is located opposite their sister restaurant, MOF Japanese Sweets and Coffee in Pavilion. The menu is quite extensive here and they have lunch and dinner sets that are definitely more value for money as compared with ala carte orders. Checking thru, the menu consist of a hodgepodge of Chinese cum Asian offerings ranging from Taiwanese's 3 Cup Chicken to Japanese's hot pot and even sushi (but I think they have a little Chinese influence) right to a rather fusion Kapitan Seafood. Anyway, since we both can't find anything that can safisfy us from the set menu, we opted to go ala carte.
It has been a hot day and the best way is to have a cold noodle to slurp down hence I opted for a Minced Pork Prawn Noodle (RM18.90). It looked kinda plain but the flavour's there. The prawns were fresh and crunchy, most probably being marinaded with soda bicarbonate duh. I find the noodles doesn't keep cold till the end, it's not so pleasant eating room temperature noodles. My fault also cos I took a bit more time to snap pics gah!
The captain recommended a Rice Wine Chicken (oops can't find the price) to Capt'n Hook. Added a bowl of rice (RM2.00). The soup came with a little stove to keep it warm. After a sip, he complained the soup has no ooomph. He signaled for the Captain who took his order and told him so. The next thing, he brought a small bowl of rice wine and pour into the soup. Capt'n Hook took another sip and gave thumbs up for this. Now this is what I called good customer service by addressing the issue immediately ;-)
We added a steamed egg with minced pork which came looking like chawan mushi but this is better, just like how mom's steamed egg with minced pork tasted like. Now I have to remind myself to ask my mom how to make this!
I had a young coconut( RM7.00) and Capt'n Hook a pot of Pu Er (RM5.00). Prices here are kinda steep with a 10% service charge imposed but I supposed you're paying for the nice ambiance and environment, plus great service. Food wise, will have to explore more to try other dishes.
