Dined at Chao Yen restaurant at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall in July 2009, which branded itself for authentic Teochew cuisine.
Teochew food focuses on braised, steamed and salt-preserved cooking methods; and probably most famous for its congee with variety of side dishes.
Braised intestines, duck meat, squid and tofu
Combo of some iconic braised dishes…
Preserved pig-ear, pork knuckle and jellyfish
Chinese ate the strangest food, ain’t so lol?
Long beans stir-fried with salty minced pork
Didn’t know about this dish despite me being a half-Teochew descendant. Not sure if it’s authentic Teochew stuff, but tasted damn well…
Mashed yam, arguably the most famous Teochew dessert, was a dissapointment; the sugar coated yam stick was decent though…
Descent restaurant; food was overall good, but not great; proper service, nice variety, quite authentic; a bit expensive though.
