Cheong Wah Restaurant - Pusat Bandar Puchong

We have lunch at this popular restaurant. It was formerly located at a corner lot in Jalan Kenari area in Bandar Puchong Jaya (opposite IOI Mall).

Moving own to bigger and place with a purpose build restaurant success still follows it. It is now located at the commercial part of Pusat Bandar Puchong (opposite Tesco - i.e. on the other side of the LDP). The food is served promptly and the price is reasonable. The air-con is comfy and the distance from other tables is 'luxurious'.

We have 2 veges (Yau Mak and Green Dragon), Fried Tofu, Kung Po Frog, Rice Wine Chicken and Roast Pork Knuckle.

The cooking is minimal oil use for the veges and tofu. The Foyee is missing from the Yau Mak. Interestingly the Green Dragon vege taste and smell a bit like leeks. Both are crunchy.

The inside of the tofu is tongue burning hot. It is rather bland but it is intended that way so that the tofu unique taste and smell can be delivered. The frog leg is the best part as it is the meatiest and I can feel it in my mouth. If possible I would just have the legs. The dry chilli and sauces are just nice and not too strong. The Chicken cooked in Rice Wine is a bit of a disappointment. The chicken meat smell is too strong despite the wine infusion.

The crown jewel of the lot is the most expensive. The Roast Pork knuckle is crunchy on the outside and the fat and tendons were cooked just right and the meat is not chewy. A good workout for the jaws though!

I don't know about you but I think the food presentation sucks big time! Especially when the price is not exactly cheap.
