Icy cold Sweet & Sour Pork

Last weekends (after the Korea trip) my parents were still in Seremban and we decided to have dinner together at Kong Ming Oakland Restaurant after recommended by one of hubby's friend. This friend praised highly on the fish head. When we arrived at the restaurant, the first thing hubby wanted to order was the fish head. However, something caught our eyes. We saw almost all the tables there ordered a dish with ice covered till the top. Curious, we asked the waitress and she told us it was Sweet & Sour Pork.

Sweet & Sour pork. RM 25
Immediately, hubby placed an order for that special dish. It became a STAR for that night. It was super delicious as it was crispy and cold. Unlike the normal way of preparation whereby the pork were covered with lots of tomato sauce and made them soggy, this one was well coated with the sauce yet crispy. We had fun digging for the meat under the ice ! As for the kids, they enjoyed both meat and the ice !

Apart from the sweet & sour pork, we had the below dishes too. 

Minced meat tofu. Nice to goes with white rice. Our families' favourite tofu dish. RM 12

Claypot garlic chicken. Very fragrance as they fried with curry leaves. Yummy ~!  RM 23

Fried 'chun kuen'. Not a good choice. The fillings have got too much of carrots. RM 18

Fried vege. Nothing special.  RM 18

Fish in their speciality sauce. As they ran out of fish head, we had the whole fish instead. Not too bad. RM 32

 steamed rice RM 1.50 per bowl
As far as we know, this is the only restaurant in Seremban serving steamed white rice in the stainless bowl. Our total bill (6 Adults + 2 Children) comes up to RM143.50 inclusive of a pot of tea.

This restaurant had an older branch in the town center. But of course, the new restaurant looks more comfortable and presentable. After hubby told his friend about this unique sweet & sour pork, he was surprised and keen to try them out. He did not noticed this dish when he dined there previously.

  2. Oh, sweet sour pork covered in ice. Something new. Would the pork appear watery after the ice melted? Must quickly eat this dish then.
