Restoran Pik Wah

That evening in Kuala Lumpur, we attended a dinner hosted by Uncle and Aunt Tay whom I have not seen in more than 10 years (or maybe even 20). They have been my dad's friends when he first set foot on Malayan shores back in the early 60s.

Yes, Malaya i.e. Singapore didn't exist then.

The food was excellent and you know how the older folks cannot do without decadent delicacies of sea cucumbers and shark's fin soup etc which personally, I felt was a tad too rich for my blood. We also had the usual Chinese New Year Lo Hei but this time round, there were more salmon then the condiments!

Yup, Uncle and Aunt Tay are still the same after all these years. Everything in their lives had got to be big and grand.

Still the piece de resistance of the night has got to be the humble claypot rice. Uncle Tay specially flew in stuffed goose liver lup cheong from Hong Kong for this dish and my gawd, it was sheer heaven! The best part was we started scraping the bottom of the claypot for the rice crisps after it had soaked up all the juices from the lup cheongs. Yum! Sedap! Oiishi-ne!

To my Malaysian readers who are in or going to be in KL, here's the address of this restaurant which I highly recommend. However, I doubt if you are able to order the claypot rice since we flew in the lup cheongs ourselves. Still the rest of the dishes were very very good.

Posh: Here's something to ponder. Despite all the goodie "liao" onto, the best part is the rice below. I think there is a life's lesson in there somewhere.
