Restoran Kawan Kita, Semenyih

Hi. I'm back! Sorry for the long absence. I have been deprived of the joys of the Internet for some time. Anyway, I've moved into my new place in Semenyih. One of the first place which I tried was "Restoran Kawan Kita". Me and my friends choose this restaurant because of its unusual location. You see, this restaurant is located in the grounds of a Chinese Temple. And no, it is not a vegetarian restaurant. This restaurant serves meat and alchohol.

Picture above is just the wet towel given to us. Took the picture so that you can see the address but it didnt turn out clear. Anyway, if you're coming from KL, the easiest is to take the Seremban-KL highway, turn off at Kajang and follow the signs to Semenyih. Its just straight all the way until you reach Semenyih town. You will see the restaurant on your left as you approach Semenyih town.

Above is the plate of "Yao Cheng Hong Kong Choy Sum". Sorry about the ugly picture. Was eating halfway when I realised that I havent taken any pictures. So you have to look at a half eaten plate. The vegetables were nice, fresh and crunchy. The sauce(made of oil, garlic and oyster sauce) was also nice.

Next dish to arrive was the "Fu Yong Tan" or Seremban egg. Its basically an omelette with pork slices, prawns and onions. I found this dish to be abit too oily. The piece of lettuce which the omelette was on was soaked with oil when we were done with the omelette.

The last dish to arrive was the "Nai Yu Fei Chao Yu" or butter tilapia. A whole red tilapia was filletted, and sliced into bite size pieces. The pieces were then fried with oats, spices and butter. The result? Absolutely fantastic!! Its like eating butter prawns except its fish fillets. There was a nice spiciness from the "cili padi" that was in there as well. The accompanying salad of carrots, onions and more "cili padi" was a good companion for the fish. This dish came highly recommended by the guy who took our order and I'm glad we trusted him.

The tilapia sounds interesting. Haven't seen a tilapia done this way, I bet all the "mud" taste would be eliminated.
