Restoran Extra Super Tanker @ SS20/10 Damansara Kim PJ

This post is actually more than one year old :P my friends and I actually went to lou sang at this place during Chinese New Year 2010! LOL!!! That's why I wrote in my previous blogs that I was getting lazier to update blogs. Coupled with a relatively busy year, I felt so exhausted and tired to face the PC everytime I finished working.

This restaurant needs no introduction - famous for its rather creative food and a rather odd name... I have noticed this establishment everytime I drove to Damansara Utama using the residential road in Damansara Kim. It is especially crowded during dinner time even on a week night. Hence reservation is preferred to avoid disappointment. Some of their food require pre-booking due to the tedious process.

These 2 guys are my best bud - we have been friends since our school era! It feels good to meet up once in a while just to catch up on each and everyone's lives.

What I love about the yee sang was the usage of fresh pear - it tasted so FRESH (duh!) and sweet! After the lou sang session, main dishes followed suit.

Thousand layer crispy beancurd - one of the signature dish of this restaurant, we loved it! Despite its name, the beancurd has only 5 layers with 2 layers of ham and 3 layers of beancurd. Its skin was crispy but the inside was simply soft with melt-in-the-mouth texture. Definitely a must have dish.

How many layers did you say again? :P

Smoked chicken & duck - both poultry's skin failed to make the mark as they were not crispy but their smoky flavour had us hooked to its meat! Personally, I prefer the duck meat compared to the chicken as the latter tasted rather ordinary.

Stir fried nai bak with yam - this green was one of my favourite and when it was paired with yam (Hakka people love this!), it won me over!

Braised pork belly with ginger & chilly - slightly spicy but the meat was soft and tender due to the braising process. This was actually our second choice as our first choice - claypot pork belly with salted fish - was not available on that day.

Leo's verdict - I could have lunch and dinner at this restaurant everyday :) their food was simply top notch although slightly pricey. They have since opened another branch at The Club @ Bukit Utama which was bigger and more spacious compared to the Damansara branch.

Maybe it's called that cos it tastes so good you feel like it's really a thousand layers? Super-yummy-looking! :D
