Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant

Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: LG – 69 & 70, Lower Ground Floor, Berjaya Times Square, No. 1, Jalan Imbi, Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It has been a while since the last time I visited Kim Gary in Mid Valley’s branch. I cannot even remember there is a branch in Berjaya Times Square until my friend said she wanted to have dinner here. I am glad to see the restaurant still offers various set meals which can easily take you a while to choose what you want to eat and how much you want to eat.

It did take me a while to look through the menu to decide what I wanted to order for the night and lastly, I chose to have a bowl of noodle, an half of the toast with chicken wing set which included a glass of drink. It seemed a lot, right? I was thinking the noodle would not make me feeling full and the additional of toast and chicken wing made the dinner more completed.

It was really sinful to have the toast at night but it has been quite long I did not have toast in Kuala Lumpur. It was nothing special about this toast and chicken wing, it tasted normal and slightly oily as usual for the toast. Besides that, I think they do not use butter, they gave me margarine instead. It did not taste good. No comment about the chicken wing, just a normal chicken wing.

Instant noodle with a piece of luncheon meat and a fried egg on top of noodle is the basic for a Hong Kong style instant noodle meal. Sometimes, you can find some vegetable and sometimes, you do not. It is normal instant noodle with MSG soup based and it is nothing interesting about it. I am not sure which instant noodle’s brand they are using. The noodle texture is spring, did not overly cook the egg and luncheon meat.

What interested me the most of that dinner was a glass of cold ying yong. It is a combination of the coffee and tea, one of the favourite drink in Hong Kong too. The ratio of the coffee and tea is important to get the right taste of the ying yong.

It was a night full with unhealthy food selection, the toast and instant noodle. Moreover, having the cold drink after the meal is not going to help the digestion at night but it satisfied my stomach!

Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe

Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe

After a walk at Botanical Garden on the Saturday’s morning, we headed to Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe which is located at Plaza Singapore, Orchard Road. It is a Hong Kong style restaurant and it has quite a lot of branches in Singapore.

Since it was an early dinner, I decided to try the famous Hong Kong style’s Yin Yong (mixed coffee with tea). Uniquely, this yin yong serves in the stainless steel mug. I could not recall if Hong Kong serves Yin Yong in the same way.

Each time visiting Hong Kong style restaurant, I will order the wanton noodle to try. It is something like testing the chef’s skill. The wanton noodle was ordinary only. I did not take a nice picture of the wanton noodle that I ate. I tried to search online to get the similar picture and it is so hard to get one. Maybe, it is not their signature dish.

My cousin ordered the Chicken Chop. I was a little bit shocked to see the chicken chop was so small piece. Even, the chicken chop that she ate at food court is bigger than this! I took the fries and it was a bit hard (not crunchy type), looked like over-fried.

We also ordered Fried Wanton. It is lucky to have ordered this as the chicken chop portion is quite small. This fried wanton was pretty okay. It was crispy and went well with the sauce. It saved our dinner 🙂

U-Village Restaurant

A short catch up with friend at Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur, brought me to this Hongki (Hong Kong) restaurant, which is located outside of Sungai Wang Plaza, facing the Lowyat Plaza’s parking entrance.

Longing for the Hong Kong style’s wanton noodle, I ordered a bowl of prawn wanton noodle. I waited quite long for my noodle to be served. I think the waiter has misplaced my order. After few checking, yea… my wanton noodle was served.

It is a bowl of disappointed-wanton noodle. The noodle was over-cooked. It was too soggy, so next time, I must tell the cook, please do not cook it so long. They gave three pieces of big wantons but not as big as the ones I had in Hong Kong. The soup based was a little salty and oily too.

My friend ordered the claypot loh su fun and it turned out to be not a claypot!

The cheapest and most worthy drink to be ordered is the Yin Yong (Coffee mixed with tea). It is worth because it is refillable but it is a little too sweet for me.
