Tucked in a corner on the second floor of Bangsar Village II is where one can find the most sinful Chinese dishes in this part of Kuala Lumpur. Reunion Restaurant which is owned by E&O group is not a big restaurant so it is advisable to place your reservation ahead, no matter if it's lunch or dinner cos it's almost always full house.
The specialty here is Fried Hokkien Noodles :p Capt'n Hook's Caucasian friend loves the noodles here so much that each time he meet up with Capt'n Hook, it would be here in Reunion. I can so understand why he's smitten and so were the hoards of food bloggers whom have blogged about the Hokkien noodles here. The thick noodles are really dark glistening with oil and hidden in there are loads of crispy pork lard (chu yau char in Cantonese). I loved the inclusion of pork liver which was perfectly smooth and tender other than prawns, pork meat and squid which made the dish very old school. Our small portion for 3 (which we can't finish) costed RM29.80, not exactly cheap but it's really worth it.
The noodles to be eaten with the sambal, they went hand-in-hand indeed.
The other dish that kept us ordering is the roast meat combination. Our 2 combi (RM24.80) that evening was BBQ pork (char siu) and roasted pork (siu yuk) that comes with some fried salted peanuts on the side. BoiBoi loves the char siu most as it's not overly sweet and charred just nice. Crispy cracklings with flavourful tender meat, what more can one ask for in a piece of siu yuk?
Dining with BoiBoi means we have to order a dessert for him *roll eyes*. In Chinese restaurants, it's almost always Chinese pancake and the daddy ordered the lotus paste pancake (RM13.80). As I noticed the price is not cheap in fact more expensive than Xin Cuisine in Concorde Hotel as Xin only charges RM10 for a pancake.
The pastry, no doubt, is very flaky filled with ample amount of lotus paste. It's a tad oily though, my only complain here.
All the above dishes with one serving of Chinese tea (Tie Guan Yin) and 2 plain water (foc) came to RM83.75 inclusive of 6% Government tax and 10% service charge. I know, we can have many plates of fried Hokkien noodles at dai chow places with that amount but I guess indulging in such sinful noodles with a nice cosy environment and fantastic service once in a while it's quite worth it.
