Chao Yen Teochew Cuisine @ One Utama

The Chinese people always greet each other with, “吃饱了吗?”, meaning, "Have you eaten?" So, eating is a bliss. As a matter of fact, enjoying the process of eating and savoring all edible items in front of you are bliss upon bliss. I'll save my expenses on anything else but food. But that doesn't mean my belly is my god. Don't get me wrong. XD

So, my sister and I decided to feast at Chao Yen Teochew Cuisine at One Utama after taking a happy tour in Lotte Mart. You won't miss this restaurant with its two big red words: "CHAO YEN" against a dark brown background. When we arrived, it was almost packed with people, mostly families or a group of 6-8 people per table.


Judith is my younger sister, a determined and no-nonsense young lady. Haha... Me too. Both of us have this kinda "don't-talk-to-me-unless-necessary" aura, so those who are not close to us will always leave us alone, in case they got snapped at. Oh yeah, we are good at that. So, you'll either like us or dislike us. And we don't care. :)

Okay, let's talk about food.

Fantastic! It's called noodle thread, meaning rice vermicelli (not the transparent type) in thick, almost sticky broth cooked with slices of Chinese dried mushroom, baby oysters, and vegetables. I think there's also egg-white. A little jar of dark vinegar is served separately if you'd like to add sourness to your bowl of noodles and broth. At RM17.90, it's a bit pricey, but good portion and quality rule out that thought almost immediately. Thumbs up, in fact, both thumbs!

Delicious! I guess the photos have explained themselves pretty well. RM15 per pot, not meant for one pax, it's meant for sharing.

There are many more pork-based dishes that we wanna try: pork trotters in vinegar, braised pork ribs, minced pork with dried scallops and dried oysters porridge or noodles, and many more!

Just as Ying Ker Lou @ The Curve, Asian Street specializes in serving Hakka cuisine, Chao Yen specializes in serving Teochew cuisine. Are there any difference? Oh, I think I should find out more!
