Did you know thatHokkien Meeis not the only dishes that is popular among the Hokkien? It is more than that. Fried Tapioca Noodles and Hokkien Braised Pork are part of the Hokkien dishes’ family too.
Proudly born and raised as a Hokkien, I decided to visitRestaurant Hua Xing to savor the authentic Hokkien dishes. Tagging my parents along, I am sure that we will make a good verdict on the food in Restaurant Hua Xing, Sungei Way.
Rather than going there for dinner, we opted for lunch since it is less crowded, and parking would not be much an issue. No reservation is required if you go there during lunch hour but for dinner, you must do your reservation.
Here are the must-try Hokkien dishes and below are our verdict:
1. Fu Zhou Red Wine Chicken Mee Suah
A heavenly dish that fits the tastebuds of the ladies, especially! Rich in taste and aroma, you will find yourself slurping the broth and finishing the whole bowl of Mee suah despite that you are feeling full.
2. Braised Pork with Alkaline Cake
A typical Hokkien dish that comes with alkaline cake. It is tasteless if you eat the alkaline cake on its own but it’s a perfect combination when you eat it with braised pork. Just remember to ‘shower’ it with the broth.
3. Hokkien Noodles with Bitter Gourd
A meal will be incomplete without a plate of Hokkien Noodle. As their signature Hokkien Noodles comes with bitter gourd, we decided to give a try. Well, my verdict is I can get better Hokkien Noodles elsewhere in PJ. Even, the Hokkien Noodle at Oriental Pavilion tastes way better than this.
4. Fried Tapioca Noodles
Also known as ‘chi hun gen’, this dish is quite popular in Klang. I had tasted some of the best tapioca noodles in Klang and somehow, the ones served in Restaurant Hua Xing can't beat the hawker stalls in Klang.
5. Fried Potato Noodles
Note that there is a difference between Fried Potato Noodles and Fried Tapioca Noodles. Unlike tapioca noodles that is chewy, potato noodles are generally thinner and smoother.
6. Fried Brinjal
A must to order! Sinfully delicious and crispy. One is never enough and it’s a perfect snack for everyone.
7. 7. Spring roll
Was a bit disappointed with its taste! Pretty bland and tasteless.
8. Fried Dong Fun (Glass Noodles)
Surprisingly, this plate of noodle tastes better than the Hokkien Mee. Comes with a variety of vegetables, this gives a balance taste of the ‘yin’ and ‘yang’.
9.Thai Fried Rice
This is just so-so only. Forget about it if you are not into rice.
All in all, the food served in Restaurant Hua Xing brings a pretty much bland or neutral in taste. Unlike the ones in Klang where we are all being pampered with heavenly, thick taste and aroma (Zong Ko Wei).For those who wish to try what Hokkien dishes are all about, head over to Restaurant Hua Xing at Sungei Way. Go and try it today!
