It was good to meet up with Precious Pea again after she moved to Melbourne, but she came back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year. It was a week after Chinese New Year and it was pouring heavily. We (WMW, Precious Pea and me) were waiting in Precious Pea’s car by the roadside, somewhere around SS3 for Teckiee to show us the way to SS3 night market, where WMW raved about a good yam puff (that would be in another post). After we managed to grab a few pieces of the yam puff, we went straight to Hua Xing at Sungei Way to meet up with Jackson.
Since it was Chinese New Year, yee sang is a must but we kinda tweaked it by adding in roast pork (siew yuk) that Precious Pea and WMW bought from Damansara Kim before this! Siew yuk sang, anyone?
We left the ordering task to WMW as she has been here few times before this. First to arrive to our table was the deep fried beancurd with minced pork, chopped choy pou and spring onion, all bathed in a scrumptious gravy. The fragrant toppings and the gravy complement the beancurd nicely.
Usually a hit with children (in this case, us too!), the deep fried oyster mushrooms with sweet sour sauce (we requested them to serve the sauce separately) was a delight to bite into as the batter coating the mushrooms were light and thin and weren’t greasy.
If I am to choose my favourite dish for the night, I’ll pick this one. The deep fried eggplants stir-fried with garlic, dried shrimps and topped with spring onion was very addictive and definitely has won me over. I have to admit that I do not eat eggplant previously because of its squishy, mushy texture but this dish successfully change my mind.
Last but not least, some meat to satisfy our meat cravings. The pork with salted fish exudes a lovely aroma but when we digged in, we found the dish lacked the salted fish flavour. Certainly, there’s still space for improvement for this dish.
Restoran Hua Xing
Lot 1-12, 1st Floor, Plaza Seri Setia,
Jalan SS9/2, Seri Setia, Sungei Way,
47300 Petaling Jaya.
To get here, from Federal Highway (towards KL direction), after passing the 2-storey flyover at Motorola, keep left and go straight till you see signboard pointing to Sungei Way. Take the ramp and you will reach a narrow lane going slightly uphill with shophouses on both your left and right. Plaza Seri Setia is located at the back of the shophouses on your left. Take the lift to first floor and turn right. The restaurant is located just next to the lift.
