Mini Family Gathering -- Restaurant Shanky

>> Sunday, September 14, 2008

Happy Mooncake Festival!

Mooncake festival is usually a time for family gatherings, but sadly, I didn't get to attend any family gatherings like the usual years :( Everyone had their own agenda, so my family just had dinner with my uncle, aunty, & a close church member at a restaurant in SS2, 'Chow Yang'.

Restaurant Shanky is located on the same road as the Restaurant Okay & the famous Kayu Nasi Kandar. It's not a large restaurant, but it's quite easily located -- corner restaurant in the middle of the row of shophouses.

This restaurant offers a variety of Chinese-style dishes & as far as my observation goes just now, I noticed that the restaurant is quite packed with people! Tables were even opened outside! Hmmm...food-wise, it is fairly nice. I reckon the only put-off was the price (we paid a total of RM138.00 for the dishes!...), which I felt was slightly steep. Aside from that, I've no complaints whatsoever ;)

The restaurant

Salted Egg Prawns
We didn't get enough prawns to go around!! There were only SIX prawns, but there were SEVEN of us...bummer!

Claypot Chicken with Salted Fish, Brinjals, & Dried Chilli
This dish is quite nice. It was a lil on the dry side, but the taste is not too bad.

Stir-fried Baby Pak Choy

House-specialty Beancurd with Broccoli, Mushrooms, & Beancurd Pieces
The gravy was a lil too starchy...the beancurd was not too bad though :) nothing much to shout about, really :P

Braised Pork Slices with Preserved Vegetable ("Mui Choy" in Cantonese)
I didn't get to eat the pork! There wasn't enough to go around :(

Stir-fried Sweet Potato Leaves with Preserved Beancurd

Steamed Red Garoupa ("Hong Jou" in Cantonese) in Teochew -Style
The fish was fresh :) The overall taste wasn't fragrant enough though...there's something lacking! *can't think of what's lacking now*

It's not too bad a place to have dinner, but I still feel that there are much better options around the area :P The choice & decision is up to you! :D
