Crab Cake with Papaya Mango Dressing Served with Apple & Chili Salsa 果香料酸与辣
Perfect combination of sweet-sour taste with a small bite-sized of crab cake.

Finally had my craving satisfied! teehee, long time never had oyster already!! To me, the topping is amazingly nice and the oyster is freshly served too :D

Pumpkin taste is not strong enough but the added ginger and seafood made the soup appetizing!

Main Dishes 金盛主菜

Baked Fish with Spicy Pineapple Chutney & Fragrant Coconut Milk Rice 菠萝辣酱香鱼椰奶浆饭
I enjoyed this dish the most as the taste is very different from the ordinary nasi lemak. The baked fish is very well-cooked and the tasteful pineapple chutney topping is a plus point to the dish. 

Sambal Squid Malay Traditional Style  传统大马风味香辣三拜墨
For spicy food lover, the sambal is pretty hot enough to stimulate your salivary glands :D Tasted kind of spicy but appetizing one.

Wok Fried Chicken with Salted Egg Yolk 黄金霸凤凰
Crispy skin and the texture of the chicken was fine.

Bailing Mushroom with Garden Green  园林绿化白灵菇
Gravy homogenized with the mushroom well.
