Restoran Chef Low - CNY Gathering

>> Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Overall comment: Food tastes good & price is quite reasonable (except for the veggie that we ordered) considering that the restaurant is based in Bangsar, a "quite-high-class" area.
Halal: No

After all the ding-donging, a group of us colleagues finally managed to set a time for CNY dinner together. Quite a number of our friends couldn't make it for this gathering, which was slightly disappointing (yes, especially Genie boy!), but we sure look forward to meet up with those busy-bees someday soon!

We decided on Chef Low as it was quite near our office. Right after work, we headed over to Lucky Garden, Bangsar, the nightmare of places after office hours, for our CNY gathering. Parking is madness, but if you don't mind paying & if you're fortunate enough as well, you can park at the paid-parking lot in front of TMC, the well-known mini-market (not so mini anymore) in Bangsar, & pay RM1.00/hour.

What we ordered were pretty much Chinese New Year dishes. I'm actually quite satisfied with the taste & overall price of the food here.

Large Yee Sang with added fish + jellyfish + pear (RM58.00/serving)
We found it slightly too sourish. Certainly not the best yee sang that I've had for this CNY. The one that my aunt packed from Damansara Perdana (not sure which restaurant), is much nicer. Nevertheless, thank goodness the ingredients are fresh :)

Lou sang!!

Toss it higher!

Deep-Fried Pumpkin with Salted Eggs (RM25.00/large serving)
This was quite good, but I personally prefer the slices of pumpkin to be thicker so that there's more "chew" - just like the ones from Restoran Hai Tian at Seri Kembangan. This one at Chef Low is thinly sliced, but the flavour is still sufficiently intense. Not bad :) Salted eggs rock!

"Xiong Thong Lala" (RM40.00/large serving)
ABUNDANCE of lala!! As my family rarely order such a dish, I was quite surprised to find SO many clams in this bowl of soup! I expected this to be clear, sweet clams soup, but the one here turned out to be a pepper soup! How interesting. It felt like having a "lala lat thong"! I felt so nostalgic & started dreaming of the Kajang lat thong (mixed pork in pepper soup).

Beancurd with Seafood & Gingko (RM30.00/large serving)
This was quite an interesting dish. It felt very "fung foo" (lavish). All the "good stuff" are in this dish :) The beancurd is also very smooth & yummy :) Nice!

Braised Pig's Trotter (RM55.00/serving)
Rich in flavours & very aromatic. Apart from the tender braised pig's trotter, you'll find pieces of yam, mushrooms, scallops (I think), dried oysters, & "fatt choy" (the hair-like vegetable/root).

Twin/Yin Yong "Kai Lan" with Dried Scallops (RM50.00/large serving)
This was quite a shocker as we didn't know those crispy bits were dried scallop 'til we were about to leave the restaurant! Argh. What a shame & a waste since we didn't finish it up! The vegetables were fresh & well cooked to perfection. The deep-fried dried scallops were also quite tasty & added flavour & fragrance to the plain vegetable dish. However, as we didn't know those were scallops, at leat 3-4 spoonfuls of it were wasted/untouched :( Bummer. What an expensive vegetable dish....thank goodness it was nice.

Steamed 3-Types Egg/"Sam Wong Tan" (RM20.00/large serving)
Pretty good since the steamed egg were not over-done. The flavour was also just nice - not too salty, not bland.

A peek into the steamed egg dish...

If not for the parking problems, I think I won't mind frequenting this place. The food is actually quite good for the price paid.
