Review: My Kitchen

Updated 14 April 2009

My Kitchen has gone Pork Free!!!

**Non-Halal Posting**

No, no... not a review of my kitchen back home, but My Kitchen at Sunway Mas (besides Aman Suria). Been hearing rave reviews by some but then another group, not so favourable. Since I was in that area, decided to give it a go. Apparently, My Kitchen serves Hainanese cuisine.

My Kitchen

It was very early and we were the first to arrive. The menu are not extensive but sufficient for a decent meal. We ordered the Stewed Pork, Hainanese Style Brinjal and the must have according those who raves about it - Hainanese Mutton Soup.

I ordered the Pineapple drink that my mom used to make. So that was my benchmark. My Kitchen's version is not bad, definitely have pineapple flavour unlike the one I had in Kluang Station. Not too sweet and lots of pineapple pieces. Actually this is very easy to make, chop pineapple into small pieces and boiled in water for about 30 minutes. Add rock sugar. Best served chilled.

First to arrive was the Stewed Pork (small portion RM12.90) which to me looked a whole lot like the Hakka version of Char Nyuk. Taste wise it's slightly different though. Can't really pinpoint what but somehow lacking the oommphhh of it's Hakka cousin. Perhaps the usage or rather the lack of 5 spice powder is the factor here.

Next came the Hainanese Style Brinjal (small portion RM7.90). Thick chunks of brinjals are not too oily. The dried shrimps do bring out the flavour of this dish.

A pot of chilli sauce and a bowl of parsley were placed on the table. Oooo... the chilli looked great and tasted full of garlic and ginger. Just the right balanced for me.

And so apparently the chilli sauce and parsley are to be eaten with the Hainanese Mutton Soup (small portion RM9.00). Smart of them to serve the parsley separately as some people find them "smelly" but I loved them. Added loads of them in my share. This soup came with loads of mutton chunks some beancurd sheet (foo chuk) and deep fried beancurd (tau pok).

The soup is thickish but not sure what so flavourful as claimed. Could be due to a certain Chinese herbs that they have used that gave this soup a distinct flavour. This certainly is not our cup of soup. Could be an acquired taste. The mutton is tender though and thank goodness tasted good with loads of chilli sauce that masked away the flavour.

MK - Mutton Soup

At the moment, I'm standing on the not so favourable side but might need to give them another try... chicken chop and chicken rice with rice rolled into balls will be on my list next.

  1. would love to try this place as fiance love brinjal!

  2. Similar to the mamak's or Indian's sup kambing?

  3. The brinjal i cook looks better la.
    Babe jie - the food doesn't look interesting enough, really.

  4. Looks kinda decent but all small portion? They look like can serve 3 person leh.

  5. meiyen & jackson, let me know your feedback

    tummythoz, totally different. i like sup kambing better esp the one at the back lane behind Jalan Dang Wangi

    stupe, i thot so too

    jason, both of us filled to the brim and we shared one bowl of rice :p yeah best served 3 person

  6. The pineapple drinks brings me back to my childhood days. Haven't had that in ages!

  7. I love that the menu is as big as the wall!

  8. The Hainanese chicken Rice ball is ok only. The best is still Melaka Hoe Kee in term of chicken rice ball. The rice is bit sticky. The chicken is slightly over cooked when I was there, not moist enough.
    The lamb stew is worth trying. Very tender.

  9. wmw, kinda special huh?

    oh my, steamykitchen, dat's not the menu LOL. they just printed the pics of the dished in a banner and put it up the wall.

    okie will try later, thanks foodies

  10. Hi there,
    Stumbled on your blog... By the way, it is kind of funny to read the sentence "Mon-halal posting". I think your posting is "halal", only the food in non-halal for the muslim. Hehehe. Perhaps you can re-phase it to "non-halal outlet". Anyhow, looking forward to read more of your food reviews!

  11. Never heard of the pineapple drink before. Would love try it the next chance I get... maybe I'll just make it on my own since you've described how to do it.

    Sounds simple enough... but how will I know if it's close to the "real thing" if I haven't tried the original before? :)

  12. hi anon thanks for highlighting.

    kenny, its really easy, taste like light pineapple syrup with pineapple bits kekeke
