Chinese, Our Baby

Mom’s Birthday @ Reunion, Bangsar Village 2

July 15, 2010

Nestled in a corner inside Bangsar Village 2, it’s this place called Reunion. Makes a lot of sense to us, especially Chinese as it means togetherness. It turned out to be quite a nice place to have proper Chinese meal too and it proves to be a wise choice to celebrate my Mom’s birthday here.

Here’s Kayden making all sort of funny faces (he’s actually sleepy and crying because want to sleep).

Despite we only make reservation 2 days before, we could still get a private room which can accommodate 15 people and it’s a very long table with 2 Lazy Susans.

Just an illustration on how long the table is.

Being a 1st timer, I left the ordering to my parents. So the first on the list is Peking Duck. It used to be pretty rare to find this dish in KL, but over time, there are quite a number of restaurants that whipped out good quality Peking Duck that even can be served back to the Kings and Queens of the Imperial era.

What’s so special is obviously the crispy skin, wrapped around a soft layer of wraps made from what I think is egg and flour and a slice of cucumber. I don’t normally eat duck meat (because of my gout) but I can’t resist this delicacies that dated back from Imperial China. The wrap is thin and smooth and compliments so well with the crispy skin.

Dipped it into the Hoi Sin sauce and you’ll be begging for more.

Even Jasmin who don’t always eat meat also can’t resist getting a 2nd helping.

Steamed Chicken with Soya Sauce is truly one of a kind. It’s topped with pickled chillies (which is not spicy) and lots of cilantro. The chicken is smooth and juicy and it’s one of the best steamed chicken that I ate before. Definitely a hit for someone who like to eat rice.

The Honey Glazed Pork Rib is very tasty too. It’s deep fried to perfection and once you sink your teeth onto one, you’ll want to keep on biting until you finished it.

Claypot Eggplant with Tofu, as appealing as it looks, seemed to be the weakest link for the night. There’s not much taste from the Taucu sauce and that makes this dish a bit ordinary.

Being Chinese, it’s never complete without ordering a fish. This River Patin is recommended because it’s so fresh…and steamed using the most conventional way. That’s how you will know how fresh the fish could be.

The Steamed Cod fish is not bad either and good for those (like myself) who can’t eat non scaly fish.

Stir Fried Bittergourd with Beef, only for those who are old enough to eat (because they says that you will only eat bitter gourd when you are getting old or something like that). The meat is tendered and soft, if I’m eating rice, I’m sure I can whack 2 bowls of rice.

The Fuh Yong Dan is not bad either with crabsticks, prawns and chives as the fillings, one can eat this anyday.

Stir Fried Veggie after all the lavish meaty meals!

According to my Goo Mah, the Hokkien Mee is a must try. True enough, it’s really really delicious with lots of pork lard. Although it’s not charcoal cooked, its still full of wok hei. Not bad of a dish from a fancy restaurant. It’s a must try, recommended by me!

Although there’s 15 of us, by the time this last dish came, we’re full to the brim. It’s still a nice spring roll dish, with the duck meat left from the Peking duck.

The Pavlova that I got from Alexis @ BSC. It’s sweet but it’s very nice. It’s also the cause for Kayden sudden outburst of rashes after my Mom fed him some.

It was a very nice dinner considering it’s not that well known among the food blogger (I might be wrong though) and in my opinion, a lot better than Cheers Palace or even some other Chinese restaurant.

    Thanks for dropping by and glad you like the recommendation. For my few times at Cheer Palace, the food is so-so, maybe we don’t know what is good to order. Hope you tried Reunion and like it.
