The “new” Chow Yhang, as it is written in Chinese character 新朝阳, is actually own by the the same boss that once operate the restaurant of the same name located at where KAYU and Mee Yoke are now. Years after selling off the two corner lots, Chow Yhang now run the new shop just a stone’s throw away from the old location.
always packed but there’s air contioner
We got there at about 8:30 on Saturday night and there was a healthy crowd at the restaurant, luckily we got a table just as the previous diners were leaving. Though stripped of it’s former glory of spanning across 2 corner shop lots, the new Chow Yhang is still nicely set up restaurant, it’s no frill decoration is clean; and rather comfortable with air conditioners keeping the temperature at check.
oyster omelet, tofu, vegetable, and soup
For 5 of us, we ordered an oyster omelet (蚝煎), a basic fried vegetable (蒜米豆苗), tofu with minced meat (王金豆腐), seaweed soup (紫菜汤肉碎), and the unique dish – fried bacon (炸华腩).
To my delight, the first dish came in less than 10 minutes after ordering. However, the subsequent dishes did not exactly come fast enough, so we ended up almost finishing the first before the last one arrived. Not so great at planning, I suppose, but I’m not about to complain too much.
the fried bacon with Thai sauce, yummmm
The food though, was top notch.
Instead of normal white rice, fragrant rice is used, nice. The oyster omelet fried just nice and goes well with the chili paste provided. The tofu, soup, and vegetables hold their own in terms of taste as well as presentation, not too salty nor blunt. The fried bacon though, was excellent, if you happen to be the sort of person who loves bacon. The crispy pork bits with plenty of raw shallots, lettuce, and Thai sauce blends very well to create a pretty unique taste and texture. It is rich and not for the faint hearted.
Just a couple of turns away from the expensive LDP
The bill came to RM 73, a pretty good deal considering it was less than RM 15.00 for each of us. The most expensive dish was only RM 15 (fried bacon). Would definitely go there again.
