Let me start off with my Favourite Top 3 dishes served from their brand new menu which I enjoyed most in this food-tasting session.  

Nasi Lemak Jalan 223
Origin: Petaling Jaya
RM 18.90

Which Malaysian doesn't love a hearty serving of nasi lemak? Me for once, just simply cannot resist the hot piping coconut milk rice completed with a perfect combination of sweet and spicy sambal, hard-boiled egg and fried anchovies (ikan bilis). Kak Yati's nasi lemak located at Jalan 223 always has a long queue of hungry customers. 

The nasi lemak is wrapped in the old style of banana leaves and newspapers, packed with the usual sliced cucumbers, boiled egg and sambal. Selling up to 1500 packets per day, there's no doubt that Kak Yati's packet Nasi Lemak is one of the best in town!

~ Mouth-Watering Juicy & Tender ~ 
Fried To Perfection Chicken Drumstick 

Thumbs up to Ten Years Restaurant for serving this absolutely delicious perfect set of Kak Yati's Nasi Lemak with the usual condiments of a boiled egg, ikan bilis, peanuts, cucumbers and extra sides of keropok lekur (fish fritters). Indulge in its nasi lemak signature set comprising a whole chicken thigh marinated with special ingredients and freshly fried to crisp golden perfection. The rice is fragrant with the creamy coconut milk and provides a great balance to the chicken and spicy-sweet sambal.

The not-so-spicy sambal was a bit on the sweet side and are readily available for extra top-up upon request. You can also add-on the coconut milk rice for a price if the serving is not enough to satisfy your craving for Malaysian national dish. 

Shun Fa Restaurant Chicken Rice
Origin: Kuala Lumpur
RM 19.90

On its menu are another Malaysians' all-time-favourite Shun Fa Chicken Rice served with a whole chicken thigh roasted to perfection with special Chau Siew sauce, as well as delectable stewed egg and tofu with cucumber and poached vegetables.

Marinated To Perfection
Succulent & Delicious Roast Chicken Thigh from Shun Fa Restaurant

Shun Fa Restaurant, famous for its perfectly poached free-range chicken subtly seasoned and served with fragrant rice. Been successfully making a name for itself since 1975 among the locals, the second generation of the family now runs the restaurant, carrying down their founder's precious recipe.

The rice was just decent, could have been better more fragrant and buttery but the 3 types of sauces namely the ginger sauce, chillie-ginger sauce and the soya sauce were pretty good.

 T & T Prawn Mee 
Jalan Chong Fatt Sze
Origin: Penang
RM 16.90

Great Food Shots by my fellow makan kaki, Jason Liew who blogs at: fattyjason.blogspot.my. So, pictures credits goes to him! 

For a true taste of Penang, you must not miss out on this delightful noodle soup. Being one of the best prawn mee in Penang, which always sold out in the early morning, the stall at Jalan Cheong Fatt Sze has 50 years long of history behind it. A legacy of good food which spans across 2 generations, the recipe is still being faithfully guarded with much success.

Savour the fresh ingredients such as prawns, fish cakes slices, boiled eggs slices and fried shallots soaked in hearty prawn broth boiled for hours with tinges of spices.

Chunky Piece of Ikan Ayer (Tuna)

With its perfectly steamed rice that smells of fragrant coconut, served with a generous portion of Ikan Ayer/ Ikan Tongkol (Tuna) with curry that hits the right notes, together with sides of ladies fingers, fried egg and some keropok lekur (fish fritters), everything was in place for a perfect Terengganu's famous dish!

Tastefully created by her mother, Kak Tum takes pride in selling her mother's specialty, Nasi Kuning.

TIGER Char Kuey Teow
Origin: Penang
RM 15.90

Char Kuey Teow is a uniquely South-East Asian dish and of all the places to get them, Penang state in Malaysia has a reputation for being among the best. But with Klang Valley being home to many Penangites, surely it is impossible to find a few good char kuey teow hawker stalls.

TIGER Char Kuey Teow, this popular CKT stall has been cooking up a storm since the 60's and remains the favourites of the Penangites and visitors alike due to its ability to maintain the same flavour and taste, even after 2 generations.

Check out the Video & Interview: HERE

A Wok Of Art

CKT lovers will be delighted with the significantly huge plump and juicy prawns being nicely plonked on a bed of stir-fried Koay Teow, egg, chives and sprouts. Serving portion was good with all the right ingredients but in my opinion, its still lack the oomph ie the wok-hei delivered by the original cook that been frying these awesomely delicious CKT for many decades. 

Give them a chance and I believe with much practice on the hot wok, Ten Years' chefs would be able to master and deliver a better version of the famous Penang aka TIGER Char Kuey Teow in a short time!

Rojak Kepong Baru
Origin: Kepong Baru, Kuala Lumpur.
RM 12.90

Rojak lovers will rejoice over the famous Indian Rojak, better known as Pasembur Rojak originated from Kepong Baru, Kuala Lumpur while dining at Ten Years Restaurant. The stall’s second generation operator, Abu, is proud of his rojak which has garnered many loyal customers from near and far for more than 30 years.

Check out the Video & Interview: HERE

Apart from the rich and thick peanut sauce exuding a perfect blend of sweet and spicy, it is also well-known for its generous portions of tender Argentina squid and crispy prawn crackers. I found the rojak sauce to be quite thick and too sweet to my liking but on the other hand, some may loves the sweetness and the special thick sauce instead. I like mine to be on the spicy side, rich yet not too sweet with lots of  crushed peanuts! 

Spread Of Malaysian Flavours At Ten Years Restaurant  

Thumbs up to Ten Years' executive Chef Arthur Lim as he is the master now to all of the eight Malaysian famous cuisines. He took pains and sweat to learn from the original cooks for many months; learning from scratch and tweaking the recipes to be as authentic as possible, ensuring that the dishes taste just like that served by the original hawkers. Great respect for passionate Chef Arthur!
