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.

Great appetizing fish to kick start our dinner!

Gold Coin at RM8 – Kam Chin Taufu.  The deep fried homemade taufu has very smooth texture, and is served topped with fried chai por, dried prawn, spring onions and shallots.

This basket carved out of the pumpkin was steamed and served filled with prawns and squid cooked in a spicy sauce. The pumpkin taste goes very well especially with seafood ingredients!

Last but not least, we enjoyed the Fried Hor Fun with Kailan, prawns, pork and egg which was delicious; full of wok hei! The Kailan added flavor to this noodle which tasted good even eaten on its own.

Oh, the couple sitting behind us at the restaurant last night had almost the exact same fish in the same fish-shaped dish! Hmm… I wonder if it’s a branch..?

Happy Boxing Day from Johor Bahru! (Back to KL tomorrow)

Kam Chin Tofu (Golden Brick Tofu?!) can be found in most Chinese restaurants now, some call them as their SIGNATURE tofu, but more or less the same.

Happy Xmas, and New Year, CK!
