Wedding lunch

On the 7th November we attended hubby's ex-colleague wedding lunch in KL. It was held in a school hall and the caterer (Hao Xiang Chi Restaurant) from Sekinchan came all the way to cook for the lunch. I heard it is quite a famous restaurant in Sekinchan. The lunch started at around 1.30 pm and ended at 4 pm. It was a sumptuous lunch indeed and we actually skipped our dinner that night. We only had a cup of hot milo before bedtime.

I wanted to take photos of the food but was too embarrassed to do so because we were sitting with hubby's ex-colleagues. It won't be nice to stop them from taking the food for me to take the picture. haha  But I found some of the food images from the restaurant's website.

1st dish - pun choy
The first dish being served was the 'Pun Choy'. It was delicious. The gravy was thick and flavourful. At the bottom consists of yam, fried beancurd (fu chok), meatballs and roast pork. Due to only 6 adults at our table, we couldn't finish all the dishes.

2nd dish - chicken herbal soup with abalone & dry scallops
Then came the chicken herbal soup. Each of us have a bowl. The aroma of the herbs were so fragrance. We drank till the last drop. There were still some leftovers but we did not drink more as afraid of heatiness. The soup have a piece of chicken meat, dried scallops, abolone slices and clams.
 
3rd dish - steam Promfet
After the soup, we had the steamed fish. It was very fresh with no fishy smell. The fried garlic on top enhance the taste more and the soy sauce was delicious. I had both fins as everyone seems not interested.

The 4th dish was deep fried squid in Thai style. I couldn't find the photo for this dish. Normally, we had this Thai style for either chicken or tofu but, during the wedding luncheon they served with squid. It was absolutely delicious. The skin was crispy and the sweet and sour Thai sauce goes very well with the squid. We nearly finished the whole plate but did not managed at the end. 

5th dish - Stir fried lotus root with nuts & celery
Instead of the normal 'chap choy' (mixed vege), we were being served with this dish. I don't really fancy lotus root and only had some celery and macadamia nuts. None of us on the table enjoyed this though. Partly, we were already full after talking the earlier 4 dishes.

6th dish - Pumpkin fried rice
Next, came the Pumpkin Fried Rice. It was being served with this pumkin look - a - like porcelain bowl. The fried rice was delicious as they added some dried shrimps and yam. Even YX had 1 big bowl of this rice. It also have some meat and prawns. I'm not a pumpkin lover but am craving for this rice now.

Finally, the desserts were served. We had the white fungus with dried longan soup (served cold) and deep fried 'mua chee'. I couldn't find this picture in their website too. The deep fried 'mua chee' was so delicious that I had 3 of them despite being very very full. The outer part was crispy and the inner was soft like cotton. It just melt in your mouth !

I told hubby this is the BEST wedding luncheon I had so far because the dishes served were so different from the normal wedding reception. I really feel like 'flying' all the way to Sekinchan now just to eat some of those delicious delicacy, especially the Pumpkin fried rice and deep fried 'mua chee'. I really missed them !

  5. The food looks simple and very small-town...and more often than not, that would be THE best! The authentic Chinese banquet that we had since small...

    Now all the Hongkong-China influence...nothing's like what we had when we were small anymore.
