ShenZhen09 Day 2 Dinner: 面点王@Book City

Continue from ShenZhen09 Day 2 Brunch: 湘鄂情

面点王 Mian-Dian-Wang is well-known as Chinese fast food chain in Shen Zhen. It is almost similar to those McD, KFC that appear everywhere; the only difference, 面点王 Mian-Dian-Wang serves Chinese Food rather than those fried and high calories pre-prepared food.

This is the only picture I have for their interior and environment around. I was prohibited from taking photo of their interior and deco. Guess they are a little blogger unfriendly. Here, you have to order straightly from the bar counter (something like self service as well). The chef and cooks will take order from you. There are a variety of dishes from appetizer to porridge to bao to vege to meat to dumplings to…

芝麻拌面 Zhi-Ma-Ban-Mian, Noodles with Sesame Sauce is always my all time favourite. The plentiful of sesame sauce on the noodles. There are 2 types of noodles to choose from --- normal or the wheat type. This time, I chose the wheat noodles that appear in brown. Ahhh, it was very jelly-liked and I took some times to chew the mouthful of noodles. I prefer the normal type noodles as it brought out the strong aroma of sesame sauce.

雪菜+木耳 Xue Cai and Black Fungus

金瓜粥 Pumpkin porridge --- the soothing one.

酱骨架 Jiang-Gu-Jia. It is actually the stewed pork ribs which have been stewed up to hours. The meat part is juicy, tender and flavourful. You will never want to stop from having them.

Well, it will be a little messy while you are having this. 面点王 is kind enough to provide the gloves.


My previous visit at面点王 years ago.

Hong Kong Miu Kai @ Seri Petaling

Craving for Polo Bun?! There is one place selling one of the best Polo Bun --- Hong Kong Miu Kai which is highly recommended by Sugar Bean. Located in Seri Petaling, Hong Kong Miu Kai is selling a variety of pastry besides serving food like the ordinary Char Chan Teng such as Wong Kok and Kim Gary.

Fresh baked Polo Bun(s). They are selling out like a piece of hot cakes. Wen Ching from Sugar Bean told me, she has been here for a few times and this was the second time she grabbed this. One advice from her, never come here after dinner as you will be going home with empty hands.

Look, there is a handful of custard as the core centre. Besides the custard flavor, they do have Yam (and others) too. The custard flavor is the best among all.

ShenZhen09 Day 2 Brunch: 湘鄂情

Continue from Shen Zhen 09 Day 1 Dinner & Supper: AirAsia & 福建沙县小吃@益田村
I am supposed to have dim sum for my very first meal on the very first day. Sadly, while we arrived at the place 西湖春天 and find that they were closed down. They were doing a very good business previously. We guessed it might be dealing with the property problems or the management of the building or something. Too shocked with no more 西湖春天, we changed our mind to a restaurant nearby, 湘鄂情 Xiang-E-Qing.

湘 Xiang resembling 湖南 Hunan, a province of China. In short, Hunan is called as Xiang after the Xiang River that runs through it. Hence, Hunanese cuisine is also called as 湘菜 Xiang Cai.
As for 鄂 E, it is representing 湖北 Hubei.

We were here in湘鄂情 Xiang-E-Qing for their Hunan Hubei cuisine 湖南湖北菜. A revisit for me as I was here before in my previous trip.

煲仔娃娃菜 is one of their best selling. The stir-fried Chinese cabbage present in the warm claypot to keep the dish warm at all time. It was really appetizing with the additional black vinegar for the hint of tangy taste and the added chilies for its little spiciness.

海带排骨汤 Double Boiled Seaweed and Pork Ribs Soup.

Hmmm, how shall I describe this?! --- 老火汤. The soup was double boiled up to wheee hours until the ribs were crack easily into pieces. Besides that, the seaweeds were extremely soft and melted right between your tongue and hard palate.

半打手卷 were super soft and fluffy.

干煸四季豆 was best compatible with the 手卷 or a bowl of rice as it was on the salty side.

I can’t remember the exact name for this. It was smoked fish (香薰鱼) or something. It came in 6 big pieces of fish where the fish were deep fried and seasoned and smoked. The fish together with its bones were crispy, crunchy and very yummy-licious.

Something embarrass happened. While I was having the crispy fish, I accidentally swallowed a tiny bone and it got stuck in the throat. Guess I had brought a mess to the waitress. She kept serving me bowls of dark vinegar and white rice in order to drain off the tiny bone. In the end, I had 2 or 3 bowls of vinegar in my stomach. >__<

ShenZhen09 Day 1 Dinner & Supper: AirAsia & 福建沙县小吃@益田村

Back from Shen Zhen and I don’t wish to be home. Time was like fast-forwarding for me during the lovely home-stay in Shen Zhen. Well, I would never regret for cashing out my saving to purchase the air ticket and support myself with the limited pocket money.

Precious Pea has raved about Air Asia’s Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak and I decided to have a try.

The portion was rather small. It came with piping hot fragrant coconut rice, sambal, rendang chicken, boiled egg, peanuts and ikan bilis. I was happy with the pre-ordered system because they give priority and privileges for those who pre-order their meals online. Well, no waiting and no starving for me.

Due to the H1N1 problems that the world is facing now, we were not allowed to enter the airport hall once upon arrival. There were the Chinese health authorities with the masks came on board for the one-by-one passengers’ health and temperature checkups. This took about 30 minutes.

The small portion of Air Asia’s Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak did not really fill up my stomach. Me and sis then visited to small little shop selling 福建沙县小吃 for supper. Their business runs almost 24 hours every day!

We had a bowl of hot piping wanton soups 馄饨汤. There were about 12 to 16 pieces of wanton in my bowl. Priced only at RMB 4

A big portion of 拌面 (priced at RMB 4) is something I like a lot. The noodles were covered with scoops of sesame + peanut sauce. It must be mixed up quickly once it is served. However, this is something not everyone can accept it as one may feel it is too greasy and yucky. But, I love it.

Steamed dumpling 蒸饺. The 12 of these cuties are only RMB 4. Cheap hor???

The steamed dumplings are best dipped with their house’s peanut sauce and also black vinegar. I love them with peanut sauce + black vinegar. I myself can finish up ¼ bottle (big) of their vinegar. :P

Finally, a plate of green veggies at RMB 3.

Tummy warmth and filled up. All of these are huge in portion and cost at only RMB 15 which is equivalent to about RM 8 J
