Cat Can Talk!

You don’t believe? I am a cat, and I am talking to you now!

Want to feast like an emperor this coming Chinese New Year? My wife and I managed to try some no-nonsense and strictly traditional menu item a few weeks back and thought what Utara Coffee House have to offer is pretty decent.

Here’s sharing with you what we had:

Prosperity Yee Sang with Salmon doesn’t disappoint and no fanciful, does not complement the mix item in it.

 photo IMG_20150126_195653_zpsfhtfuqwq.jpg

Shark’s fin soup. Yes. Quite controversial, but I do appreciate having this in my bowl.

Chinese Herbal Chicken. Wife did not like herbal items, but I’m a huge fan, so I polished off hers happily when I was done with mine.

 photo IMG_20150126_201638_zpsd4ikjpmo.jpg

Steamed Seabass with Ginger Sauce was okay. Flavourful and no fishy smell whatsoever.

 photo IMG_20150126_203648_zpsrgunqmhr.jpg

Fried Prawn with Salted Eggs and Butter Flakes. Easily my favourite that night.

 photo IMG_20150126_203834_zpsbjsjuzar.jpg

Fried Mixed Vegetable and Fat Choy. Very basic and original. The veggies are fresh and sweet.

 photo IMG_20150126_203736_zpsyphn7iuv.jpg

Chinese New Year Lotus Rice. I gave this a miss as I was already too full from previous dishes, but my wife helped herself to this more than once, so I guess it tasted pretty good.

Red Bean Cream was delicious and not overly sweet.

 photo IMG_20150126_214016_zpsdx3jrjks.jpg

Our meal ended with Chinese New Year’s Pancake and Steamed Nian Gao.

Overall, what Utara Coffee House is offering for the upcoming Chinese New Year is strictly traditional.

Their specialty: assorted selection of Nasi Lemak. Managed to try this, MyNasi set (RM10.90) with whole chicken thigh. As usual, it’s served with a side of sambal, fried anchovies, peanuts and a a slice of boiled eggs.

The house special, Taufu Telur (RM7.90) It’s merely a smooth tofu fried in omelete style, drizzled with sweet soya sauce and topped with shredded cucumber and carrots, but this humble dish is delicious enough to warrant a second or third helping.
