“Zui Xiang Lou” is a Chinese restaurant located opposite the Bukit Mertajam’s St Anne Church. FYI, 醉乡 (Zui Xiang) translates to Drunken Village. My parents had a dinner with some relatives a few weeks ago and found the food to be quite good. So we decided to try again.
The restaurant was empty when we were there. That’s not because the business was bad, we were just early (we usually have our dinner at 6pm)
Everytime we go to a new restaurant, we will order their fried mee tiao. I don’t know why, but this dish alone will kinda justify a restaurant’s food. Fortunately it tasted good lol.
招牌豆腐 Their signature fried tofu is good stuff. They are stuffed with a mix of tofu and meat, which makes them.. elastic? The outer layer is surprisingly crispy too!
This is the most expensive dish for our meal. Claypot Seafood that wasn’t cooked in a claypot.. I think it costed around RM26-27, kinda cut throat eh?
Tong Po Rou, a dish invented by someone called Su Tong Po back in China long time ago. If my memory serves me correctly, he wanted to preserve the pork so he used dark soya sauce. Like many other Chinese dishes, it slowly transformed into a delicacy. It is prepared using the 3-layered pork belly and buns are given to eat with the gravy.
Lemon Chicken, normal stuff. We ordered because we missed it :)
The last dish, Garlic Prawns also tasted normal only. Gave me a bad breath after that lol :PZui Xiang Lou Restaurant
