DINNER 2009 @ GOLDEN HAPPINESS RESTAURANT, JALAN CHENGAL, SIBU


A Dinner that starts off with a noodle dish is an UH-OH! It's usually a dish that is served towards the end of a meal, as a "fill-me-up" item. Does it mean the dinner is on downward spiral from herein?



... then comes the freshly cast fish, just off the carrot net; swimming in a pool of soy broth; all apprehension of a nightmare meal just walks out through the glass door; this is just the tip of the iceberg...


A suckling pig with deep-fried Man-Tau buns displays a lot of promise. Does it get any better than a suckling pig?



... a non-starchy shark's fin soup with almost all the regalia of a Buddha Jumps Over the Fence. Sweet!


And a vegetable dish that is not at all green; steamed pumpkin with braised sea cucumber and sliced abalone. The steamed shrimps wraps up the course.


The meal has the hallmark of a regular banquet with meat, fish, shrimp, soup and vegetable, minus the appetizer. The only boo-boo is the noodle that they have it in reversed order. Otherwise, the service is excellent, with plate/bowl change at every turn of the course - better than some 5 star hotels... you can't ask for any more!

Wow, that is an amazing meal! I like the fried mantou and suckling pig. Don't normally see those two go together.

Really top quality food. Top quality price as well?

The food looks good. The place has not been getting very good reviews lately - probably just rumours. I think that should be in the region of RM300-400, if inclusive of sharks' fins soup). But a la carte, I'm not too sure...

those seen here are considered their specialities, as they are 'repeats' in subsequent visits; so they must at their best!

ABOUT THIS BLOG

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!
