One good thing of being Chinese is, we like to eat. Every family gathering, birthday party, graduation party, anniversary and even wedding dinner, will involve eating… eating… and eating… Everytime when the food are served, it will be cleared in less than 10 mins. Everyone is like starving for ages. That is why it makes food blogging so difficult. I have to keep stopping them from disturbing my “Konica” (photo) moments with the food.
Some tips on that, don’t use SLR. Just use point and shoot ! Basically you have a very limited time before someone starts to say, ” Aiya, food oso want to take arr ? Take after we finish laa”. So please bear with me if the pictures are not attractive enough.
We just have our family gathering in Restoran Sam You, Seri Kembangan. The restaurant is just by the roadside, 5 min drive from Mines Wonderland. I have been to this place for many times and everytime, that place is full with cars and people. They even hire car jockey because it will get congested. When I say congested, It is really congested.
Main criterias for choosing restaurant for family events are the place has to be cheap (if you can find, that will be perfect) and good. Or else, every uncle and auntie will repeat the same old stories again and again and never ending. . Restoran Sam You recently offer RM 1 for Crispy Piglet if you order either RM 298 + or RM 398 + Set Menu. The offer will be valid until the 31 August 2010. That is the reason we chose here this time.. hehe..
The environment is just too noisy considering everyone treats that place as gathering place. Most of the table setup can fit approx 10 pax or 10 + 2 pax (kids). This place is clean and bright too. It has 2 different stories to cater for the high number of customer every night.
We ordered the RM 298+ set with 2 bottles of carbonated drinks (free). Good deal but let us see the dishes first. The dishes are 4 seasons (although there are more than 4 dishes in one big plate), steam garupa fish, mix vegetables, 2 taste prawn, sharkfins, fried unpolished rices and honey sea coconuts with longans. I particularly like the 4 seasons, sharkfins and 2 taste prawn.
The highlight is the roasted piglets. Everyone on the tables claims that this is the best deal they have ever tried. RM 1 for one piglet. This is the first time I tried the unpolished fried rice. I only tried a few spoons considering that I have load up myself with other dishes. There is nothing special about the rice from the look of it, but it tastes good.
Like I said, for every dinner evens, everyone are very very hungry. At the end, we managed to finish all the dishes including the last drop of shark fins soup. They also managed to clean the rice till the very last grains (the picture below taken before someone “clean it” up). I am not sure if they really like it or hungry but they just said, don’t waste food la. Which I AGREE too.
As I mentioned earlier, this promotion will expired on 31 August 2010. If you interested in getting the RM 1 piglet, make sure you reserve the place earlier.
