Char Chan Teng

Yesterday evening I met up with my friend since high school. Still very close up to today, I am glad; though we do not meet much. I still treasure my time with her a lot.

We went to Pyramid, Sunway to have dinner and of course some shopping.
We ate at Wong Kok Char Chan Teng.

We ordered their value set meals which came with :

FruitsWe didn’t eat the fruits, that was the first thing that came out and somehow didn’t appeal to us.

DrinksThis is my Apple juice that requires adding RM1 to get the juices; else their set drink is a coffee or tea. I forgot to take my friend’s drink; she had a glass of Milo.

Sweet Corn Cream Soup with Garlic BreadThis soup wasn’t bad. It had a very strong sweet corn taste which is yummy to me. The garlic came with the dessert which was weird hahaha but I took this picture after the garlic bread arrived. The garlic bread is delicious! Sufficient garlic and butter taste. Yum~

Cheese Baked Beef RiceMy friend’s dinner; It is nicely baked but I find it not cheesy enough. My friend of course loves it :).

Grilled Pork Chop (blur picture, lousy camera holder :P)This is my order; I was expecting a Hong Kong theme restaurant to have a good pork chop meal. Well, other than the pork chop was too thin in slice and eventually made the pork chop a tad dry. Minus the dryness, the pork chop actually tasted not too bad.

DessertThis taste like strawberry jam :P.

Every dish came out very early! Supposedly be after your meals, but everything came at one shot! Dessert was the 4th thing that came to our table. So if you’re looking for fine dining service like appetizer / starter, main course, dessert and along that line… don’t expect from this place!

It is a good meal, especially since the companion is a really good one. Thank you my friend for accompanying me for dinner and to shop for my stuffs.

Have you been to this “Char Chan Teng” before?

Yay! I'm the FC! War...so long already still meet up. Good! :) War...went to Sunway? It's been awhile since I last been there. :)

Tekkaus said...

Hmm..the garlic bread looks weird. Maybe I'm used to Pizza hut's ones. I love cheese but too bad I can't take beef! :) Looks like you guys have a great meal aye.

ladyviral said...

Tekkaus : Waaa FC! :P Yea Sunway... Best shopping mall nearest to my house mar hahaha.

Pizza Hut's Garlic bread is tasteless leh... now like butter taste only... Oh can't take beef? Religious reasons?

яіи†akase said...

Nope... wei -__- You everytime post food.. D: I want to eat the cheese baked rice .. but not the beef one :x

Makes me feel so hungry .. I'm eating instant noodles right now -__-

ladyviral said...

Rin : Err... At least this time it isn't when you're hungry XD. You're eating now :P. Instant noodles? Waaa I miss instant noodles... yum yum~

[SK] said...

well, typical char chan teng servings :p but i guess the companion is a lot more important than how the food taste in this occassion right??

ladyviral said...

SK : Serve fast, eat fast, please get lost faster? :P haha! Yep the companion is always the best :).

~dolly~ said...

yup..
got 1 "fun hei dei" in tebrau jusco..
got lots of hong kong food there..! yummy and cheap!!
ok.. not so cheap but consider cheap in shopping centre standard.. ^_^

wenn said...

wow, so good to still keep in touch with your long time friend..

Mei Teng said...

How come they served the fruits first? Strange coz most serve them last.

ladyviral said...

~dolly~ : "fun hei dei"? Now I haven't heard of that before hehe.

When in the shopping this kind of places are cheaper compare to other stuffs :P.

ladyviral said...

wenn : Yep it is. I really enjoy her companionship :).

ladyviral said...

Mei Teng : Their dessert came out before the main course too haha. HK fast food? Serve fast, eat fast, leave fast :P.

Faisal Admar said...

i was hoping that you can feed me some. but after read the post, i choose to wait for the next post haha

ladyviral said...

Faisal : Feed you? :o Cannot cannot... puasa puasa! hahah :P

xin said...

i have also been to the sunway one before :P it was so packed when i was there!!! but i somehow think that all the char chan tengs are quite similar

ladyviral said...

xin : Pack ar? When I went it was pack... with mosquitoes :P.

All Char Chan Teng are the same. Same concept, same style of food, just depending if the chef is good enough to make a better meal out of the same thing that is being sold everywhere ;P.

pikey said...

Not sure why but I always prefer Kim Gary.

renaye said...

i have been to one of their branches but i'm not a fan because the atmospehere is not what i'm looking for. oldtown kopitiam is much better :)

Bengbeng said...

it doesnt look al that good though.. but sometimes looks can be deceiving

fufu said...

huuh fruits came first?? kinda weird

cherie said...

no, LV, but you post took me there!!! yuuummm!!!!

foongpc said...

I'm with pikey. Kim Gary is so much better. have you tried Kim Gary? Then you will see that Wong Kok is just not up to standard, haha!

I think the quality of their food is really lousy, sorry about this but I just cannot stand eating there!

Maybe I went to a different outlet. The one in SS2 really really lousy! I'll only stay there for a drink and chit chat, won't touch the food! : )

foongpc said...

What dessert is that? Taste like strawberry jam? So can spread it on bread or not? Hehe

Ayie said...

Ummm, aren't you supposed to be on your diet now? hehehe

sunnymama said...

Looks like you had a great meal and great company. :)

ladyviral said...

Pikey : To be hoenst, I prefer Kim Gary too.

ladyviral said...

renaye : Yea the ambience not something I say nice... Too bright :P. And well, I still hate their service haha.

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : Well, yes looks can deceiving. But you're not wrong either :P. It was edible... not like oh so good thing, but was edible.

ladyviral said...

fufu : I know! I said the same thing to my friend hahah...

ladyviral said...

cherie : ooops... sorry cherie... don't mind ;). But if you ever try... go to Kim Gary in Malaysia :P. Though I am not sure if Wong Kok Char Chan Teng in other country or places would be better :).

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Yes I have eaten at Kim Gary before but haven't have it for ages... the last I was there, I didn't really enjoy it either.

Ah, well... not sure if this is better than the on in SS2. If I gett he chance, I will compare :).

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Hahaha! I think it be too hard to do so.. but it really tasted like jam :P.

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Oppps Ayie caught me... Well, I am :P. But not really wanting to stress on it. Else I will end up eating more. Being there and looking at the prices, that was the most reasonable one I took.

ladyviral said...

sunnymama : Yep I did! Eating with great friends are always nice =).

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Wow the stuff is looking amazing..Would loved to try ..Great post..Unseen Rajasthan

Pete said...

Wah, heavy meal...full course. Baked cheese with beef.....sounds delicious!

ladyviral said...

Pete : It is delicious! This one just lacks cheese in it :P.

Life Ramblings said...

glad you had a good meal with a great companion.

Life Ramblings said...

yeah, the meal doesn't look that delightful but thanks for the food review and saving my penny, i won't set food in this place. :D

~dolly~ said...

Thank u for your sweet comment and my eyes got teary when I read through it..

Recently there is a ppl comment about the picture of me cutting hair in previous post. They said I look like 50 cents hooker that just finished served a client and yet I am still proudly to post up that pic..

honestly, I was hurt by the comment. T_T..
thank u so much..

Life Ramblings said...

hi ladyviral,

teehee, sorry about my typos.

i won't set FOOT in this place.

ladyviral said...

Life Ramblings : Glad to be able to save your money on it hehe... Of course don't base on my picture of the review. My Camera really not doing me good in pictures now haha. I still don't like their service though :).

ladyviral said...

~dolly~ : Awww, I am just stating the truth :).

Such people? Take no heed of people like that. Don't like them bring you down. You know you are beautiful :) so bring yourself with confidence.

Ayie said...

it's ok as long as you don't over eat. Not good to be stressed at all, you should be looking pretty as ever, right?

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Yea been trying not to overeat eventually :P. Well, pretty doesn't really have anything to do with fat I guess.. as long as we bring oursevles with confidence then we will look good right?

Ayie said...

moderation for health and confidence for yourself =)

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Yep that is about the whole point :P.
