Fu Kua Restaurant @SS23, Petaling Jaya

I know in this post I may have present a food that all of you may dislike. The reason I am sharing this because I find this restaurant extremely unique. A Fu Kua Restaurant - means Bitter Gourd Restaurant. 

In a food we may prefer sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Bitter taste is always the last we wish to taste. But do you know how much nutrition does a single bitter gourd has? Bitter gourd contains vitamin A, B1, B2, and C. It also contains minerals like calcium, phosphorous, iron, copper and potassium. It helps purify blood tissue, enhances digestion, and stimulates the liver.

Even their drinks are made from bitter gourd! Wow!!!
Two whole pages of menu about Bitter Gourd. At that moment, my eyes cannot see other words except bitter gourd. LOL

We ordered Bitter Gourd Juice with Apple, Bitter Gourd Juice with Pineapple and Bitter Gourd Juice with Star Fruit @RM3.50 each. All looks the same to us unless the waitress explained it for us.
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - When you come to such a restaurant, you just have to order a bitter gourd juice. You won't regret for experience one. If you do not like the bitter taste that much, you may try the Bitter Gourd with Honey @RM2.50.

Fu Kua Soup with Pork Liver @RM12.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a must to order a bitter gourd soup because bitter gourd always taste delicious in a soup. However, I hope the soup have more bitter taste.

Fu Kua LaLa with Dark Beans @RM15.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - I may have chosen the wrong cooking style for LaLa because dark beans are just too salty as I am person who prefer bitter taste more than salty.

Steamed Fish @RM84.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - I feel being cheated when the waitress introduced their fish to us. I should have ask the price. The price really slapped us real hard when we received our bill. The taste of the fish is very normal and does not fit to that price tag. Furthermore, no bitter gourd in this dish.

Fried Sotong and Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg @RM18.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - Once again, I have ordered a wrong dish because I hate salty taste in a dish. So this may not suit my taste.

Overall this restaurant is very unique and amazing to us. We feel we are having our dinner without any guilt since we are aware of the nutrition in every single bitter gourd we ate. Apart of that, overall food price in this restaurant is quite reasonable except their fish. You are advised to come early especially in the weekend because they might full house and their service may be slow. There are ample of parking space here since there is a parking lot available at RM3.00 per entry. Wi-fi is not available here.

Total Damage: RM144.00 (3 pax)
Ambiance: 3/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Very Slow (Peak Hours)
Will I revisit?: Of course by choosing a better dish next time.
