Hua Xing restaurant, a hidden gem in Sungei Way that specializes in Hokkien dishes. You are bound to find the food here refreshingly good despite the seemingly familiar looking dishes.
If you are a first timer, let me make it easy for you. There are essentially three dishes you have to try here. First, the Spring Rolls, which looked more like banana fritters actually. Simple yet delicious with a crispy outside, these could get pretty addictive when dipped into Thai chili sauce.
Next, Fried Brinjal with Garlic and Dried Shrimps. Besides providing the crunch, the dried shrimps also helped to lend a nice fragrance to the dish. And since the brinjals are fried, they don’t taste soft and mushy like they always do.
Lastly, Hua Xing’s signature dish – Braised Pork with Alkaline Cakes (Hong Bak). It was the first dish recommended by the captain when we asked about their specialties.
Plenty of fatty pork pieces are used here, not really for those cholesterol watchers. But for those who are not, simply indulge in the tender and flavorful meat, best had together with rice.
The smooth but tasteless alkaline cakes are to be dipped into the thick gravy of the braised pork. To be honest I didn’t really liked it and found the combination a bit odd. Maybe because I never liked anything with an alkaline taste.
We also had a go at their Foo Chow Fish Balls, made with minced meat inside. Not bad at all.
The entire meal costed us only a little over more than RM50 including tea and rice, which is kind of cheap don’t you think? Plus, the food is good and I enjoyed the Spring Rolls in particular.Lot1-12, 1st Floor,
