DINNER @ THE HERITAGE, LORONG 1, JALAN SONG THIAN CHEOK, KUCHING

Chiang Duck

Tsui Hua Lau is dead! Long live Tsui Hua Lau (in spirit at least)! That's how to best describe the resurrection of the venerable Chinese restaurant, which most Kuchingnites have some inkling. This is the new setup headed by the head chef of the former restaurant that sank like the Titanic after being bought over by some lady from Bintangor; which goes to show that money can't buy everything; no matter how deep your pocket is, eventually you will hit rock bottom.

Fried Longbeans With Minced Pork

The chef continues the tradition of the old restaurant by offering its same signature dishes, like the soft and fragrant longbeans (above) and the steamed Hakka pork belly with preserved vegetables. The food is as good as it used to be with a price which is within the old structure. There isn't any cause to reminisce on the good old days, as it seems as though they never left. Even some of its old matire 'ds are back in force.

Claypot Home-Made Soft Tofu

Steamed Cod

Cao Rou (Pork Belly With Preserved Chow Chai)

Kay Si Mee (Shredded Chicken Noodle)

Our company of 5 was not big enough to warrant any advance order of special dishes; so we had to make do with whatever was on offer for walk-in guests. It is advisable to have reservation, as this was our 4th attempt at getting a table, only after booking the morning prior.

Hi Kong-Kay, thanks for the review. Do you have any pictures of the place? I am currently overseas but was recommended this place (or the Banquet) by someone for wedding dinner. Just want to compare. :)

I don't have any photos of the interior of heritage. It's a rather small place, 2 shoplots. Whereas the Banquet is many times bigger. If you long for Tsui Hua Lau's food, Heritage is the place.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
