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

OUR ROAD FOODIE TRIP HAS FINALLY CAME TO AN END...

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!!

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
