Pun Choy@Loong Foong Seafood.

Pun Choy literally mean a basin full of food.

Traditionally, a Hakka delicacy and only available during weddings and festivals in the village and old rural districts in China.

Nowadays, it is too commercialized in Malaysia, easily available throughout the year.

Some restaurants need two days reservation in advance to prepare the dish which is served in a clay pot, with layer upon layer of meat and vegetables.

The quality get better if diners are prepare to pay more money.

We celebrated Mother's Day@ Loong Foong Seafood. with two big clay pots of Pun Choy and a plate of stir fried Four Heavenly Kings vegetables.

The Pun Choy was enough to feed 17 of us but the high level of MSG made us thirsty !

Pun Choy-the top layer was it's highlight and the best-soya sauce tossed sea prawns, scallop, Mexican Abalone,sea cucumber, roasted pork, limpets and broccoli-next layer was boiled chicken, roast duck, fish maw, meat balls, fish stuffed dried oyster, carrot and white radish....etc -Rm428/

Restoran Wan Loy@Sg Buluh.

Restoran Wan Loy is nestled among some big factories along the main road in Kg Matang Pagar, Sg Buluh.

From the front it looks just like an ordinary Chinese eatery with an air conditioned dining area at the rear of the restaurant.

Can be quite a noisy place if the restaurant is filled to the brim.

Their menu is quite varied and cater to any age group.

Prices are reasonable and the food are OK.

Parking is OK.
