Ahoy. It’s been quite a while I didn’t do any food review. For last week I’ve tasted two dishes. one is the famous Om’s Sloppy Burger and another one is Cheng Ho – Chinese Islamic Seafood. For now, I’m doing Cheng Ho food review first because Icednyior twit me insist to know about it :p
So last monday all of our family went to Cheng Ho to celebrate my bro’s birthday. He’s so lucky. Last year he was treated with Chelsea Cupcake from One Piece Bakery and now, it’s Cheng Ho, a verily fine cuisine. He’s so darn lucky. So after Isyak, all of us went to the restaurant located at the new shoplots behind Carrefour Wangsa Maju. It’s not hard to find parking, but hard to enter as we have to queue. We’ve wait for about 15 minutes because the restaurant was totally full.While waiting for our turn, I decide to take a look on the menus. The set offer attracts us because it was a combo of x-dishes and refillable rice and Chinese tea/iced water. A quick glance over the price of a-la-carte menus makes me go wonder @_@. It’s kinda high for me so I show it to my father. Then my father said it’s okay. hooo hoo hooo chenghooo here we come.
So there’s our turn, and I quickly place the order of set 2 = 5 Dishes + Rice + Chinese tea. We have to choose 5 of the dishes from the list provided so our 5 dishes consist of
- Tomyam what
- Four Angels
- Cheng Ho Siakap
- Beef Black Pepper
- Onion Omelette
And my father insist on getting one ala-carte menu, we picked for what-beancurd-sizzling for medium size. Then, there’s come the owner of the restaurant, Amy Search. FYI, Amy Search is one of the famous singe in Malaysia because of his band, Search. So he greet us with a smile and also suggesting some new menus in his restaurant. And he suggested = Ketam Telur Masin.
(ketam telur masin )
Sounds so unique, we decide to have it. So the total dishes that night was 7. After like 10 minutes all of us goin.. whoa.. 7 dishes could be a lot. Indeed it was tooo lot for all of us. The first dishes that being served is Tomyam. It has a lot of prawns and mushrooms.And my mom said it was heavy on the spices too. It’s unlike the normal tomyam which using a lot of ‘Serai’. This one is real kickass. No MSG, It’s real spices.
( Four Angels … //and a husband lol )
Then. I felt it’s kinda long to wait for the main dishes. We even able to finish the tomyam until mum insist to keep it to eat altogether with rice later on. Then, all of it comes altogether. Four Angels is Ladyfinger + kacang panjang + terung + kacang botor + petai. It’s 5 vegetables. Oh.. maybe one of the vegetables are male and polygamized with another 4 vege hahahaha.
Next is Beef Black Pepper. It was truly nice. The juicy tender beef marinated and cooked deeply with the Black Pepper creating a very nice aroma. Even the green chillies on the plate taste a bit like the juicy beefy. Next is Onion Omelette. Well that’s kinda just plain, even I can do that and I just clueless why we order that dishes. Cheng Ho Siakap is a fried Siakap cooked in Sweet Sour. ( I think ) It’s nice and crisp, and big. The beancurd-sizzling was presented and inside that there’s a combination of tofu, egg, and also some minced chicken. It’s very very nice.
Last dishes is Ketam Telur Masin. ( Salty Egg Crab? ) It was a big, very big crab and the crab was deeply cooked inside that special sauce of salty egg. Oh. Salty Egg = Duck Egg. LOL. Again, that crab was so big that we, 5 adults and one kid have a hard time to finish it. I just an’t stop to enjoy that special sauce. It’s just delicious.
So we enter the restaurant at 1000pm and went back at 1130pm. We’re the last to leave. We decide to take a picture with Amy Search, well that’s because maybe we come to this restaurant next year.
Now, why do I said that?
For us, eventhough our family was truly satisfied and it is worth the price, but of course that’s kinda pretty high. We surely come again later on but not shortly. But my dad gave a hint to comeback by asking about ‘ how about if we just ate the tomyam?’ The price for Set 2 of 5 dishes = RM109.90 and plus the beancurd sizzling = RM18++ and the Salty Egg Crab = RM 45++ wahuhuhu. But if I’m going there, it might be during the next company birthday hahaha. The food and environment was great, and with taht amount we got more than we wanted to. The dishes was tooooo lot. Too much for all of us but we manage to finish it.
So, I would give 4 thumbs up to Cheng Ho for the nice cuisine and the restaurant open for lunch from 12.15pm-2.30pm, and 6.15pm-10.30pm. However on friday, they’ll open only from 5.00pm – 11.00pm. Be prepared to queue because from my observation, after dawn prayers/maghrib/7PM, the restaurant maybe will be crowded with people, and so you have to wait. Unsure if you can reserve in advance, but if you want to try you can call their number 03-41496094.
The address of Cheng Ho is
15 & 17G, Jalan Wangsa Delima 10, Block 3B D’Wangsa, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
That’s it. and no this is not a sponsored food review :p And for one weird thing, I don’t think I saw any chopstick there. I wanted to use it huhu.
