My colleagues (4 of them) came to my place after work one day to visit Pea and Pumpkin and of course, the 2nd agenda would be to proceed for dinner after they finished exhausting both my Ps. Miss Accounting suggested we try Ah Tuan Ee's Place, a Nyonya Restaurant nearby which somehow never strike my interest to try although I live so near and always drove past that place.
After browsing through their menu, we ordered the followings:
Pandan Chicken (RM15.80 for 5 pieces), so where are the pandan leaves? It tasted like ordinary fried chicken and for that kind of price, I felt so ripped off.
Seems like all my colleagues got a passion for squid. Since it's a Nyonya Restaurant, we opted for the Sambal Sotong (RM33.80). The gravy was not too bad; spicy and appetising. But again, I think the price is a bit too high.
The Stir-Fried Four Angled Beans with Sambal (RM14.80) was crunchy...yummzzz...this got to be my favourite dish tonite.
We also ordered a pot of Curry Fish Head (RM36.80) which came piping hot but to my disappointment, the gravy was watery. I would prefer the thick version that goes so well with steamed rice. I find the fish meat was a little bit overcooked but I loved the floating brinjals, ladies finger and tauhu-pok.
Last dish of the night was something non-spicy, Fried Golden Beancurd topped with Minced Meat and Chicken (RM16.80). I only took one bite, so that explained how impressed I was with this dish. Hahaha! Actually the tofu was ok, just that I prefer spicy food than non-spicy.
Since we were not too happy with the food yet still feeling gluttony, we ordered a bowl of Iced Cendol (RM4.80) to share. Hahaha...terrible isn't it? 5 of us sharing 1 small bowl of cendol but the waiter was happily distributing bowls for us. But I guess overall, everybody was impressed at the Iced Cendol; shaved ice was smooth, gula melaka was rich & flavourful and the cendol was fresh (homemade we suspect?) But to me, RM4.80 for a bowl of Cendol is too overpriced!
Total bill including drinks and rice came up to RM169 for the 5 of us. Personally I felt the place is way too pricey for a neighbourhood restaurant. Anyway, if you are interested to try, here is the address:
Ah Tuan Ee's Place (same row as New Paris Restaurant)
74 Jalan SS2/72
47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
