Alan Yun's Restaurant: Pin Xiang @ Aman Suria

What do u do when you get an invitation to do a food review? Go, I'd say... And what if that restaurant is owned by a celebrity? The more so one should go!

Well, that's what happened recently. I was invited to review Alan Yun's new business venture - into the F&B business... where he opens the Chinese food restaurant in Aman Suria.

This is the restaurant, all packed & crowded.. even though it's only 2 weeks old! Who would have thought?

We started off with the 'foo chok yim mai' drinks ie. boiled barley with beancurd sheet & lotus seed. This  drink looks simple but is really good!

Then came the good food! We were given samples of what the team felt were good recommendations.. and they sure came in good!

One of my favourite is the salted egg mantis prawn. If ur a fan of salted egg, you'll roughly know what I mean :)

One of the other hot favourites on the table.. the fresh sauce intestines! The sauce is sweet & sour.. a lil bit like some Thai dishes.

Another of my favourite.. the 8 types of vegetables. The 'lengau' ie lotus root is so good. Its crunchy, and at the same time mixes well with the other vegetables to give it that crunchy yet enough soft greens feel when chewing.

This is Alan Yun's favourite. The house signature village chicken.

Now fish is very tricky. Especially when it comes to talapia. But surprisingly this Pin Xiang Fried Talapia tastes pretty delicious. It is cooked just nice - crunchy on the outside, tender in the inside. And nice sauce to go with it too. Never imagined this happening with the talapia!

The champagne spare ribs. This is also Alan Yun's favourite. He sure is a meat eater Haha. Anyway, the ribs are juicy, and so are the oh-so-red watermelons!

The yam ring & sweet & sour pork was good too. I especially love the yam - which is cooked just nice. Again, if I can say it has the right amount of crunchiness. It wasn't soggy like some restaurant's.

Just when we thought we were full, we were presented with the tasty soya sauce prawns. And so the stomach gave in to the big succulent & fresh prawns! :)

Oh, Alan gave a surprise dish - the steamed frog with ginger & garlic! I'm not much a fan of such sauce (find the taste of ginger a lil empowering - that's my own preference :) ), but still, the frog meat were really tender!

My overall verdict: this is one restaurant with good Chinese food. Definitely worth a visit, and I won't be surprised if I come back for more! :)

Btw, apart from the good food, here are some random shots of the good time we had.

The humble Alan Yun helping out in serving us! Whooaaa, we are honoured!
