Restoran Gui Lin @ Taman Connaught Cheras

It is often a difficult task to find a table without having to berebut with other diners, especially during Chinese New Year period where everyone come out to dine with their families. This newly opened restaurant is located along Taman Connaught (pasar malam side).

So many people were waiting for tables that it took us about 15 minutes before one was available. I really hate waiting for so long.

Stir fried nai bak - the first dish of the night. The veggie was fresh...

Kam Heong Lala - one of my favourite ways to eat lala apart from superior soup and chilly style. I just love the smell of curry powder, curry leaves and dried shrimps mixed together with this seafood. This dish really opened up my appetite.

Claypot taufu - braised Japanese taufu + mushroom slices and veggies in claypot. Still piping hot when it was served (notice the smoke coming out of it)

Tong Po Meat - the gravy was very sweet and made me asking for extra bowl of rice (something I rarely do ever since my waistline expanded). For those who are not afraid of the fat layer, you would find this dish appetising. For me, I couldn't afford to risk my effort so far... so I separated the fat from the lean meat and it still tasted good. I wish that they have man tao (bun) so I can dip into the gravy.

Herbal Chicken - A simple and traditional way to prepare chicken meat with wolfberry before topped with coriander. A point of note... they used kampung chicken (according to the boss)

Steamed patin fish - RM50 per kilo... so the price is reasonable. The fish was free of soil odour.. did I mention before that Jenn's family is sucker for steamed fish???

Leo's verdict - The total damage is about RM170 but it was for 7 person, so it can be considered as value for money. what important is that the dishes are good enough to justify the prices.
