POPULAR FOOD COURT Restarant Tai Chow Eatery At Bandar Bukit Puchong Selangor

Yummy Discovery At
Restoran Popular Food Court
One of my latest finds is an obscure corner coffee shop located in Bandar Bukit Puchong, Selangor called Restoran Popular Food Court. This place specialises in 'Tai Chow' or Stir Fry dishes, focuses on the typical Chinese order-to-cook food. 

Actually, it started off as an invited food tasting to try out their new opening of their restaurant serving steamed fish head and Bak Kut Teh. But due to unforeseen circumstances, the owner have a new chef that revamped the whole menu offering more than just steamed fish head and Bak Kut Teh.

With a new chef on broad, now they proudly offer a wide selection of sumptuous pork, chicken, seafood, premium fish, egg and vegetable dishes cooked in several styles of cooking such as 'Baked in Claypot', stir fries, steaming, braised and much more to suit the locals tastes in Puchong. 

My family and I are in for a treat that night when I drop by for a casual weekend dinner to check out the new-kid-from-the-block. The restaurant has ample parking space during the evening but it's slightly secluded from the main road.   

Claypot Tilapia Fish
RM 34

Dinner begin with a steaming hot bowl of Claypot Talapia Fish. A tender white fleshed tilapia fish is well-prepared, cooked steamed in clay pot style. Unique and different from the many steamed fish dish I have tasted where the fish is steam cooked under hot boiling water.

Fresh & Fine Tasting Fish Dish

Chef Ussen, their new chef choose this method of cooking the fish as the steam-cooking seals in the rich taste of the fish. Choice of ingredients use is very complementary. Fresh garlic, ginger, chillies, scallions, shallots and deep-fried pork lard are part of the seasoning that goes into making the savoury and full of flavour gravy or sauce for the fish dish.

Everyone at the dinner table enjoys the sweet and fine tasting flesh of the tilapia fish together with the delicious simple sauce that goes wonderfully with warm white rice.  

Sambal Petai Sotong
RM 12

Sambal Petai Sotong or Squid is another tasty offering. White squid is chosen as it brings out the flavour which is a heady mix of spiciness, aroma and the petai's natural pungency. Chef clever use of a fresh herb, basil is added in to enhance the taste and flavour besides the belacan and dried shrimp. 

According to Chef Ussen, the spicy squid petai dish is cooked over high heat aka tai chow style without any water added at all. Hence, a little bit more of oil is used for the dish.     

Hakka Fa Yuk
RM 13

Hakka-style Stir Fried Fa Yuk is an authentic Hakka dish with fine and thin strips of pork belly marinated before being stir-fry to perfection with black soy sauce and pork lard with sweet onions. It's for those craving for some crispy and part caramel pork with an intense flavour, which is rendered by thick soy sauce seasoning.

Claypot Kangkung
RM 9

Here's a beauty of greens - Kangkong or watercress is my all-time favourite vegetable dish to eat. Nutrient-packed leafy greens are best cooked with belacan or shrimp paste to bring out the taste. For this dish, Chef Ussen added some of his special ingredients such as deep fried salted fish and ham har cheong (Chinese fermented prawn paste) to the kang kong dish to elevates the flavour.      

Cantonese Fried Noodles

Last but not least, we ordered a noodles dish at the very last minute just to check out the restaurant's noodles offering. The "Kong Foo Yin Yong" fares pretty good in my books. The gravy is smooth and not watery, good-to-the last spoon. What I like is that the chef is rather generous with the vegetable serving in the dish, cooked with pork and squid with the egg yolk added in last.

Apart from that, Chef uses the thicker type of mee hoon or rice vermicelli which has more texture and crunch especially after being deep fried. He added that he only prepare the kuey teow and mee hoon upon order to maintained its freshness.
