Coupon Deal Review: Four Seas Chinese Cuisine@Bangkung

>> Sunday, September 18, 2011

Venue: Four Seas Chinese Cuisine, Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar
Occasion: Welcome lunch with colleagues - using the Groupon deal
Overall comment: Posh & expensive Chinese restaurant, serving decent food. It's not the best sang har meen that I've had, but it was a treat by a colleague who bought the coupons, but was unable to try it out herself.
Halal: No

Eat Well, Live Brave, Have Fun!

That's the restaurant's catch-phrase. Interesting. I wouldn't have thought of this place for lunch if not for the mini team lunch to welcome our new colleagues. Thanks to Taty for the complimentary groupons, we had the opportunity to try this place out & enjoy a meal of sang har meen together with the newbies :)

The Four Seas Story in the Menu

The restaurant's "menufesto" 
Quite cute...I've never come across this word before :D

Ambiance of the restaurant
It's interestingly a fusion Chinese restaurant, where they offer liquor/wine to go with their food! It may sound like the typical Chinese wedding dinner style, but seriously, when we saw the menu having wine-pairing with certain Chinese dishes, we thought that it was rather unique (some thought it was weird).

The groupon costs RM38.00 for 2 persons to enjoy a plate of sang har meen & a pot of Chinese tea (deal was worth RM83.50, so it was a 54% discount). We were quite surprised that the serving was actually generous! At the very least, the "sang har" was quite large (actually "kepala udang yang besar jer"...hahaha). We also ordered another "Claypot Kai Lan" dish & a medium-serving of "Emperor Pork Ribs", which was not as generous as the sang har meen! The medium-sized portions are so small (for the price you've to pay) that I wonder how small is the small-sized portion!!

Anyway, the kai lan was fresh & the sauce used to stir-fry the vegetable in the claypot was fragrant, thanks to the dried shrimp. The pork ribs tasted a little like honey + Marmite pork ribs; slightly sweet & has some Chinese cooking wine. Thank goodness the pork ribs weren't dry/hard :)

We had to pay around RM68.00 for the additional veggie & pork ribs!
I couldn't believe it...the veggie itself costs RM30.00 for a medium-sized portion! Good grief! As usual, you won't expect the PerutBesi to go back there on her own...I ain't gonna pay RM30 for a plate of veggie unless it comes with some abalone/expensive ingredients! Yeah, it's Bangkung road, I know, but er....I'll pass (although the taste is food is not too bad).

My colleagues
Yeah, I realized I was the only female from the team who could make it for this lunch. The rest of the team were busy with projects & could not get out during lunch hour for this mini welcome lunch event.

the place looks nice but too bad this would be a place that i'll try to avoid with that kind of price tag :(

Peace Out!
