We have noticed the Friendship Herbal Soup restaurant (捕一宝) for quite a few times when we went to KAYU mamak or Segambut Seafood Noodle restaurant in SS2. We had thought that the place only offers herbal soup, turns out, they are a full fledge Chinese restaurant, offering a pretty big selection of Chinese dishes, and of course, lotsa herbal soup choices.
nice little setting, clean, and fully air conditioned
The restaurant is not terribly big, just a single shop lot, with tables probably enough to fit a total of 50 hungry guests. The ambience is pretty nice, environment is clean, and it’s fully air conditioned.
three different types of soup, and they offer yam rice too!
We ordered a bowl of soup for each person, and four other dishes to go with the rice, probably a little too much. Ended up stuffing ourselves to finish everything. The soup we ordered were the peanut soup (花生荡), eight precious soup (八珍荡), and the python soup (蛇羹). My god, they were yummy, I had the python soup, the texture and taste reminds me of sharksfin soup, but with stronger aroma and heavier flavour. The peanut and eight precious soup were excellent too, stocked with generous amount of herbal ingredients and meat while being not too salty nor bitter.
another 4 dishes, chicken, tofu, vege, egg.
As we were having rice, we oredered four other typical Chinese dishes. We had the claypot three cup chicken (三杯鸡), tofu with minced meat and mushroom, vegetable (油麦), and an egg dish. These dishes did not dissapoint either, the claypot chicken dish was particulary good. The gravy had a very strong and excellent taste while the chicken absorbed alot of the flavoring from the spices. I think a hint of rice wine was used in making this dish. It reminds me of the paper wrapped chicken I had in Belakong a while back.
the food was great, and we emptied everything
Total cost of the meal for three of us was RM 43.00. Pretty good deal for 7 total dishes and 3 drinks I’d say. The soup costs RM 4.00 to RM 6.00 while the dishes were RM 5.00 tto RM 8.00. Value for money and excellent taste, will definately go there again.
just a few shops down the road from KAYU
