Yi Jia House, Sri Petaling

When dining with my elderly people such as my parents, searching for a Chinese restaurant is always not my superiority. They want it priced reasonably, delicious, creative, not too salty, air-conditioned and comfortable with babies around. Thank to my Elayne Jie for saving all my trouble by introduced to me this Chinese cuisine restaurant which is known as Yi Jia House.
That's my baby boy and my newborn niece which is not in this picture is going to have a nice, comfort and private place for her milking session.

Deep Fried Beancurd with Three Type Eggs (2 pieces) @RM24.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This was the first plate that was served right in front of us. You know when the elders are still having doubt about the quality of the restaurant and the first thing they saw on the table is something common like this, you can saw their sour face plus made some "erk!"sound. From the picture, I believe you would think that too. The outlook is not really that create but don't judge a book by its cover too soon yet. The moment they took the first bite, they have rated this as one of the best dishes on the table that day. I am not kidding. This unattractive beancurd turnout to be super delicious with crispy skin with unbelievable soft and tender on the inside. It brings a little sweetness in it too. When I said crispy, it was really crispy as if we are eating crackers.


Pork Ribs with Coffee @RM30.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Coffee in your food and it is a Chinese cuisine? This is really amazingly extraordinary. Pork ribs is one of the best part of a pork and you will never go wrong with it. The extra coffee fragrant from the coffee brings a little bitter kick in your taste bud is truly inspiring. You would want to get the next piece to try that "kick"again for sure.


Yijia Crispy Chicken @RM20.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is one of the restaurant's signature dish. I ordered all the dishes by myself so my parents do not know what they would be expecting on the table. The moment they served this on the table, they said, "Oh no! No pork skin! This is too fatty and high cholesterol!" I said try a piece first and judge later. Then they said, is it pigeon meat? LoL...close, mom...it is a chicken. She couldn't believe the tenderness of the meat and it is absolutely not as fatty as pork skin. Another divine dish by Yijia House I would say.


French Bean with minced meat (Medium) @RM24.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Simple but delicious. A little too expensive for this kind of vegetable. Well, we just need to order at least one vegetable on the table to complete a meal, don't we?


River Patin HK Steamed RM70.00/kg @RM98.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Live freshwater fish + steam = a perfect delicious fish. You will never go wrong to steam a live fish especially a Patin. The sweetness and freshness of the meat will stays in there until you started to chew on it. A few minutes after that, every single fish bones was perfectly cleaned including the fish head!

Now, everyone had a happy meal especially when you are holding a Public Bank credit card, you will get 15% discount on the total bill! When the elders and the babies had a good meal, you will feel relieved and satisfy too.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
