Mum turns 60 next week. Since all my siblings were down, we decided to throw her a birthday lunch today. Mum is well-travelled and is exposed to various cuisines, but when it comes to special occasions, she's old-fashioned and only a chinese meal would be good enough for her. Coupled with her various demands when it comes to chinese food, we felt that she would like our choice of restaurant.
We started our meal with the Five Seasons, a dish consisting of five different appetisers. The springrolls were nice and crispy but I found the minced sausage (in the foreground) a little salty. The salted eggs (on the right) was delicious, especially since the flesh had been mixed with fish paste.
We ordered two different types of chicken; fried, with sliced mangoes to give a nice, tangy taste, and steamed.
The pièce de résistance was the roasted suckling pig which we ordered a day earlier. The skin was crispy and done to perfection.
The steamed fish was just okay. The hot and spicy thai sauce that went with it somewhat made it a little more acceptable.
The vegetable dish consisted of celery with tofu.
We ended the meal with sang har meen (fried egg-noodles with prawns). Although it still ranks behind Green View Restaurant in PJ (which, incidentally, I think serves a mean sang har meen), this dish was pretty decent, the gravy rich with the flavours of the prawns.
And since we were celebrating mum's birthday, there had to be a cake! We got this lovely chocolate cheese cake (I think they called it "Pralinosa") from a mom & pop bakery called Australian Confectionary at Jalan Imbi. It was a welcome break from the usual stuff we get from the normal bakery chains in Malaysia. The proprietor, Susan Chan, was very accommodating to my quirks.
