Claypot Crab Tanghoon (Glass Noodles) @ Bercham, IpohMay 30, 2008 | 18,283 views
Whipping up a storm …
Though we were in fact, an hour or two away from FREE food over at a friend’s house (Congrats to the newlyweds!! Don’t worry, identities protected). We decided to place our orders cautiously, for fear of over-indulging.
Ultra Big Fishballs (RM10 for 10)
KCA claimed their fishballs are tasty, though pricey, at RM1 each, possible contender vs dim sum outlets’ version. Large, springy texture, with some fillings, these balls are rather filling on their own. Good thing they did not relent and allowed the glutton (who else? hehe) to order all he wanted.
The steamed clams (la-la) was good, albeit slightly on the smaller scale, and drowned in a tad too generous dashings of oil. However, the sweet, succulent morsels made up for the minor flaws, that was easily overlooked.
Claypot Crab with Tang Hoon (RM48)
The main event : 2 BIG juicy crabs, cooked in claypot with yummy juices flowing, completely soaking the abundance of glass noodles (tang hoon) with vegetables and pork bacons. Sounds sooooo tempting, right? Ahem, but I beg to differ. Though the place was packed, and almost every table ordered this famous dish of theirs, the 3 of them agreed in unison that the gravy was too saltish, while I detested the overpowering peppery-infused sauce. The first few spoonfuls of tang hoon with the gravy were marvellous, sweet juices from the crabs, and ever-reliable QQ tang hoon complimenting each other perfectly, but the last few chugs of the soggy noodles were a bit too ‘jelak‘ to finish off.
Bill for 4 totalled RM67. No rice, and drinks excluded. One word of advice; Inform the chef if you’d like your dish with less salt/soy sauce, else you risk wasting away the last few spoonfuls.
