Restoran Hua Xing

I came here many years ago with my colleagues on a work day and had to wait for half an hour for the food to arrive. Suddenly, while looking for new places to bring my family last weekend, I suddenly saw some blogger posting on this place and decided for a revisit. It is recommended to come here in the weekend afternoon to escape the weekday crowd. the full price we paid was a mere RM 86 for 5 items! Of course, the portions are really tiny.

This is a non-halal post by the way...

Fried Hokkien Mee 

My father and Jonathan always love Hokkien Mee. This is really special, where it is not fried with a lot of dark sauce like the normal one. It was unique as it is fried with bittergourd.

Rice Wine Chicken Claypot 

The rice wine is not as strong as I wanted. I am a person who likes wine in food a lot and likes things with strong flavour.

Wheat Pork Ribs 

This is really juicy, tender and succulent. The sauce was even better and they are really generous with the sauce compared to Fatty Chong kopitiam.

Thai Ladies Fingers 

Somehow ladies fingers in Klang Valley is always very hard and old, but anyhow, the special thai sauce with fresh shredded cucumber and onions makes a good combo.

Transparent Handmade Hokkien Noodles 

My father and I are big fans of this. In fact, this reminded dad of the noodles my grandmother used to cook for him 30 years ago. Mum said it was a tad too oily for us and dad and will contribute to high cholesterol. Anyway both of us didn't care and ate it till the last bit as it was fried till fragrant and flavourful.

Ever since I saw a lot of bloggers posting on this sophisticated restaurant and bistro in Starling Mall,  I was attracted yet not really sure about the price, then recently, I was just thinking of just trying it straightaway on last weekend with my family without thinking too much, after all, life is about trying, and you never know what happens to your life the next day....

On weekends, there is live band at 9 pm. There seems to be many patrons here. Be prepared for a high price like RM 266.90 but without a fulfilling meal for the stomach if you were to eat here so I guess it means coming here on special occasions for commoners.

Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM 28) 

This is one of the more reasonably priced items in the menu besides those like lamb which costs RM 70 above. The chicken chop comes in big portion and quite tasty and not oily as usual.

3 Ribs Grilled Australian Rack of Lamb (RM 70) 

The lamb is just succulent, juicy and tender! My dad, Jonathan and me happen to love lamb. This item is the one that cost our receipt to go sky rocket high.

F.D. Pasta with Grilled Salmon (RM 39.90) 

This is the star must-have item, whereby the cheese is scraped off a giant Parmigiano Reggiano Parmesan Cheese Wheel and then added to the boiled pasta. The whole process is done at the live cooking station. The result is an absolutely creamy pasta with delicious salmon pieces.

Baked Cheese Tiger Prawn (RM 31) 

This is a big let down as expected it to be huge but it turned out to be small, and the hardened cheese in the prawn gave me a big a disappointment.

Sunshine (RM 45) 

Dad's chilled apple juice costs RM 13 whereas the Sunshine Cocktail which is almost like pina colade in very thick version, was a big of a let down as there was too much pulp that didn't blend well with the rum.

Ever since we saw the FB advertisement of Omurice, we were fascinated. Jonathan even wanted to go there before our Japan trip but we didn't have time.

Making the egg runny and soft and cheesy really needs a certain skill. Initially, I wondered how people could sell Omurice for such expensive price using just plain eggs, fried rice and curry...

Little did I know, that Omurice is just amazing, with its runny egg overflowing out lending a whole lot of mouthwatering flavours, when we cut it open. The fried rice is also tasty full of flavours.

Omulab is also surprisingly halal, so Muslims can eat here safely unlike Omurice in Japan. The place is so packed on Labour's Day and those who are later than 12.30 pm, had to queue for a long time, thankfully I came early at 11.30 am.

They sell Omurice and also Omu No Rice meaning things like hamburger and yakisoba which I plan to try another time.

Omu Mentaiko (RM 21.90) 

The cheapest Omu Rice is priced at RM 18.90 for normal Omurice with curry. The Mentaiko sauce is special as its cooked with ebiko hence the pinkish colour. I kept scooping the ebiko sauce.

Omu Demiglace (RM 22.90) 

This comes with beef bacon fried together with the rice till super fragrant! Incredible! We just could not get enough of the rice and bacon. There is an accompanying brownish sauce that's almost like black pepper sauce to go together.

Omu Black & White (RM 23.90) 

This is the winner of all the Omurice we ordered as it comes with squid ink fried rice inside with very fluffy and runny egg on top and white cream sauce. The rice is bursting with flavours and the price is worth it with the squid and also prawn inside.

Hot Matcha Sakura Rose Latte (RM 13) 

I have always been keen towards rose latte or anything with sakura inside. The sakura and rose was covered by the overpowering and thick matcha. Somehow drinking matcha is a bad idea as matcha is too thick to go with overly creamy omurice.

Hot Salted Genmaicha Latte (RM 12) 

Stephanie's salted matcha latte was also as thick as mine, the only difference, they serve the Japanese salt separately which tasted good too.
