Golden Lucky Seafood Restaurant, Kuantan

>> Friday, September 25, 2015

Overall comment: Constantly serving delicious food filled with "wok hei" at reasonable prices. We actually love their minced pork noodles ("yoke sui meen"), roast duck, & crunchy stir-fried pig's intestines, but this time around, we decided to try their other dishes.
Halal: No

Golden Lucky Restaurant has been around for many years. It's certainly not a place where tourists would dine as it's a very common-looking coffeeshop with not much of a crowd (but with constant flow of customers), unlike the well-known Alor Akar Seafood Restaurant. But trust the locals here, or at least trust this PerutBesi to introduce you to some decent or probably good (depending on your level of expectations) local food in Kuantan.

I've been here several times, but have never gotten down to blog about this place. The only time I mentioned this place briefly was during my trip in the year 2009! You can check out the post here. The food is still consistently delicious!

This time around, AP & I decided to try something different (as we've been eating the same few dishes for the past few years here!). So for just the both of us, we ordered a noodles, a stir-fried kai lan veggie & a plate of deep-fried "nam yue" pork belly. No regrets!

Cantonese-Style San Meen
The lady boss was recommending the "man sang meen" (braised emperor noodles), but somehow I was craving for some Cantonese-style egg-gravy, crunchy noodles. She said that this dish is also nice, so we just went ahead with the order. The noodles were fried perfectly: crunchy & fragrant, while the egg gravy was well seasoned & aromatic. I think I would want to try their "sang har meen" the next time. I'm envisioning that their ginger-infused egg gravy with 'fresh prawns sweetness' would be excellent. *drools*

"Nam Yue Zhu Yoke" (Pork Belly Marinated with Red Fermented Bean Curd)
I thought it would come in thin crispy slices, but Golden Lucky's version comes in thick, juicy chunks! You have a bottom layer of moist pork + a top layer of juicy pork fat/lard, encrusted by the layer of deep-fried goodness. Oolala...the men will say that this goes best with some beer.

I didn't bother taking a photo of the stir-fried kai lan that we ordered as it's very common. It's stir-fried to perfection & here at Golden Lucky, they use fried garlic to stir-fry their dishes instead of the white, raw garlic. I think it gives a very different level of fragrance to the dishes, even the simple vegetable dishes tastes more delicious!

Total cost for 3 dishes was RM33.00 (non-inclusive of 6% GST). I thought it was pretty reasonable since noodles for 2 persons would come up to approximately RM12.00 - RM14.00, while the medium-serving plate of vegetables usually costs RM8.00. I guess the pork costs RM11.00- RM13.00? The receipt didn't show the breakdown, but whatever the breakdown is, I certainly left the restaurant as a satisfied customer who would return to Golden Lucky for many more times in the coming days :)
