Fine Dining At Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant, The Gardens, Kuala Lumpur


Ended in Kuala Lumpur in fact.... after a good night's rest in Johor, the next day, the five of us drove up to Mid Valley in KL.  It has been a long while since I last went to Mid Valley.  We had a couple of hours to spend before each of us departed our separate ways.  Before we left for our own destinations, we had a fine dining lunch at Fong Lye at The Gardens. 

We did not know that there were two Fong Lye-s restaurants just nearby to each other.  At first we opted for the one with a long queue... then I noticed that there is another restaurant behind with the same name and eventually, we opted for the one without the queue, of course.  Not knowing what were in store, we were a "bit" astonished on the fine dining prices compared to the "sibling" restaurant nearby.  Never mind.... for once, let's be "fine" on the food!

Ended up ordering six dishes for the six of us, fine dining means smaller portions of the dishes served so better order more than less.  Don't look at the prices.... after all, how often do we come by here, right?  LOL....  When the dishes arrived, each of us were eager to dig in by then...
Spare Ribs with Sour Sauce... RM27... 
Not too bad... eh... 
Green Chives with Meat... RM20... 
Can't get this dish anywhere else... 
Braised Yam Taiwanese style... very appetizing!  RM26
Drunken Chicken  RM24.. 
Each of us can get a piece to go with our rice... LOL... 
Claypot Brinjal.... RM19
Sze Chuan style Beancurd RM22.... 
And the fine utensils served.... 
Not too bad, right!!
Overall on the food, we had no complaints at all... 
Everything turned out fine... 
We didn't faint over the price... 
Came to RM227.35 with tax and drinks...
Oh perhaps the Oolong Tea is a bit high.. RM30 for 2
With added cups for RM9 for the six of us... 
After our scrumptious lunch.... we had this  "non-halal" picture for remembrance... 
No regrets... we might come back again some day, ya!!


  1. The prices not that bad lah. After all, once in a while must give yourselves a treat :)

  2. Chinese fine dining? I would expect porcelain, fine China. That looks like melamine. Is it stone, by any chance?

  3. oklah if food is tasty! the chives dish is special!

  4. Most of the food ngam me, green chives and drunken chicken especially.

  5. It all looks worth the money. A nice variety. GREAT and happy pictures with the pig!

  6. Everything I like except brinjal... Hehe...

  7. All the dishes look flavourful, you have a very "united" family, whole family always go and eat together.

    1. Food always bring more people together.. LOL..

  8. Really fine dining. Price also very fine.

    Once in blue moon, it is okay to pamper ourselves right?

  9. This restaurant is really my favourite and the long queues are the evidence. I love all the dishes. Your beautiful photos are so heart warming and loving. I miss my parents lah!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
