The Last Song For The Year


Today is Yuanxiao (in Mandarin, Yuan literarily means "First" while Xiao refers to "night") Festival, more popularily known as Chap Goh Mei (in Hokkien). This is the last day the lunar new year is celebrated, the song I meant here is Yee Sang (raw fish in Cantonese) haha cos we'll need to wait for another year before we can savour this delicacy again. Errrr but in my case, this may not be my last cos I'm having a dinner tonight :p

Earlier, I had lunch with Mr Chairman and the Evil Cow at Restoran Hong Ngek which we visit once in a while. How irony my first review on Hong Ngek was round about Chinese New Year too and with the same few people as well!

Luckily Mr Chairman called earlier to book a table else we would be left stranded without one as the place is packed to the brim. Again, we ordered half portion of yee sang even though there are 3 of us! Ahem, we did finished them all actually. So far this is one of the better place for yee sang... so many slices of fish and the balance of sauce and ingredients were just right.

HN - yue sang HN - yue sang with fish and sauces added HN - yue sang, the aftermath of stirring and tossing

Mr Chairman ordered a pork ribs dish... which is succulent, tender and flavourful. Each of us have one piece and I would say they are generous in size. There is a slight spicy taste on the caramalised marinade that clinged on the ribs. Absolutely fingers licking good!

Next, we have a dish that have a little vegetables, a little seafood, and a little tofu. A perfect dish of a little of everything for the 3 of us. I'm not sure what's the name of this dish but it's one of those CNY dish lah that have fish maw, dried oyster, clams, black mushroom, dao bao (made of soy bean sheets), fatt choy (black moss), Chinese cabbage and broccoli. The slight starchy gravy is sooo tasty that I flooded my rice with them.

HN - oyster, mushrooms, dau kan, fish maw etc etc dish

The lunch with 2 bowls of rice and tea for all costed around RM67. I took a peep when Mr Chairman was paying. Thank you Mr Chairman for the lovely lunch.
