I was invited by Ken for dinner together with his friends from Tour2U at Restoran City Star in Taman Mayang, Petaling Jaya during my Kuala Lumpur trip. This double shop lot restaurant owned by Mr CM Wong has a nice and clean environment with one section of the restaurant air-conditioned.

Our meal consists of several recommended dishes by the owner. The first was the Charboiled Pure White Assam Fish. The fresh Fei Chow Yue at RM35 per kg was cooked in a slightly sourish and spicy soup which was kept warm under the charcoal fire.
