had a memorable dinner over the weekend, and being the selfless ant me, of course i have to feature the restaurant on AntzWorLd!

for the uninitiated, Teo Soon Loong Restaurant (previously known as Teo Soon Leong Chan Restaurant at Jalan Hang Kasturi) which specializes in Teo Chew cuisine, has just relocated to Kota Syahbandar (near to Kota Laksamana). The once run-down-looking eatery has morphed into an elegant butterfly, ensuring diners dine in a comfortable environment, though the seating is still as limited edition as before with only 11 tables available. by 7pm, the space has already filled to the brim. so, a piece of advice, reservation is HIGHLY recommended to avoid disappointment, call +606 2880209 to secure your table.

the dinner started with a massive plate of braised mee topped generously with fresh oysters and scallion (to my dismay). stir the condiments in and enjoy it with a dash of black vinegar. i managed to take my portion out before they mix everything up, phew! addition of black vinegar heighten the flavour, like how people would add vinegar into loh mee.

two hot condiments are available to complement the meal. the first is chili infused with soy bean paste (!) while the latter is sambal with ikan bilis. the sambal is mild, suitable for those who don’t take spicy food. i had it with the Oyster Noodle!

Ngo Hiong 五香春卷

instead of ordinary cylinder shape, the ngo hiong here is presented in cute little pouches! flavourful meat filling encased within the crisp wrap.

this dish is hands down a crowd’s pleaser of the night. each morsel of deep fried chicken cube is suffused lusciously with salted egg. the gravy would go so well with rice, or in our case, with mee too! as expected, everything on the plate was swept clean, even the garnishing vegetables which were glazed with the gravy.

we also had some green to balance out all the meat we had. i only came to know about this 青龙菜 recently and really likey the crunch of the vegetable, though the taste is somewhat in between of scallion and leek which both i don’t fancy. surprising that i can accept 青龙菜, i don’t decipher my taste buds at time like this :/

we were then served a quarter part of stewed duck, topped with slices of tofu. the duck and tofu soaked up the essence of the gravy is delectable!

however i notice there’s a tiny hint of gamey taste, well it’s just me, the others chowed down this dish faster than i could have second serving to verify that.

you know i hardly blog about Chinese food as the food is generally not photogenic enough. but here in Teo Soon Loong, the dishes is presented attractively knowing that the camera-eat-first is mandatory now.

back to the food, the bitter gourd atop certainly overshadowed the pork ribs lying beneath. the bitterness was camouflaged by the palatable gravy permeated through the bitter gourd, and it melted in my mouth, literally.

the dinner ended with a lovely Teo Chew dessert – yam paste accompanied with steamed pumpkin and caramelized ginkgo, another specialty of Teo Soon Loong Restaurant! apparently the yam paste was stirred with lard, no wonder the texture is so silkily smooth!

all in all, the Teo Chew cuisine served in Teo Soon Loong Restaurant is delish. if you’re first time here like me, i would recommend both of the specialty dishes – Signature Oyster Noodles & Teo Chew Yam Dessert. and if you have extra stomach space, the Salted Egg with Chicken & Bitter Gourd with Pork Ribs are not to be missed!

people might have the misconception that the food in Teo Soon Loong Restaurant is overprised. well, it all depends on what you order. for this spread of food which serves five person, it only costs about RM 20 per head. it’s very reasonable seeing that all of us walked out with a bulging stomach!
