Last night , I had dinner at this little place behind Maybank (nearer to the construction area) at Uptown for dinner. I had a great dinner. It’s relatively new, so you guys should go check it out and give some of your feedback to the restaurant! (;
Herbal drink of the day – Barley with special herbs
Love at First Sight Floral Tea (RM5)
Long Spring Rolls (RM10)
Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside . It’s a little oily on my opinion , but that’s what makes it’s so yummy . Isn’t it ?
Shredded Chicken with Private Kitchen Special ‘Ma La’ Sauce (RM12)
Initially, I thought the cucumbers were the main ingredient accompanied by the shredded chicken. Apparently not ! Silly me .. Anyway , the shreded chicken is a little spicy and sour at the same time accompanied with pickled cucumbers like the ones you find in acars .
Long Boiled Soup of the Day (RM6)
This boiled soup is definitely a must have to accompany the other dishes that you would be ordering. Firstly, it cleanses your palate , secondly, it just refreshens you and ready to move on to main dishes. Heads up for you guys, every bowl would contain different amount of meat and arrowhead.
Cantonese Chicken with Sand Ginger Sauce
I’ve tried many kinds of steamed chicken , this is relatively good. It’s different from the normal ‘pak cham kai’ you have at chicken rice stalls as it has more ginger to it. Honestly, I hate ginger. But for all you ginger-haters out there, go ahead and take a bite. Trust me, it’s so mild, you can’t even taste a tinsy bit of ginger.
Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce (RM28)
I had a shock when the lady served the dish and said it’s stir fried with STRAWBERRY pepper sauce. I thought she was joking. Goodness gracious me ! This is the best fusion version of stir fried black pepper sauce beef ! Juicy meat accompanied with strong pepper taste with a strawberry after taste. The strawberry doesn’t overpower the meat nor the pepper sauce. It was just divinely perfect .
Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish (RM18)
Not many would enjoy this dish . It’s the Chinese Chives I tell you .. Also known as garlic chives, it’s quite an aquired taste especially to those who rarely eat this veggie.
Pan Fried Pork Chop Lemongrass (RM25)
This is another fabulous dish . First bite’s the best, as you can instantly taste the lemongrass with a hint of citrus. I treat this like a snack, something you can just munch on as you’re in a conversation with your company.
Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce (RM32)
Juicy tender pork ribs with a bold hint of mustard mayonnaise . I’m not too sure what is in the salad sauce, but it taste so delicious . End of discussion, you’re ordering this!
Portugese-Style Fried Rice with Braised Pork Belly & Seafood (RM16)
Nothing big to shout about. It’s fried rice but ala portugese !
A warm cosy atmosphere, perfect place to bring your parents for a Hong Kong cuisine dinner!

I had a long day today. After school, I was at Canton-I, One Utama for lunch to try their new dishes and the their current RM1 chicken! No lies. It really costs RM1 and worth RM28. It’s a promotion they are having for the second time to ‘give back’ to their customers. That’s if you get it. Anyway, the RM1 chicken taste quite alright, though. *giggles* I’d prefer my home-cooked chicken in black soy sauce (which I had for dinner)
The RM1 chicken offer started on till April 30 and only valid for dinner daily from 6pm to 9pm for dine-in only by a minimum of four persons while stocks last. Nobody’s fooling now, go get your RM1 chicken!
See? Not lying to you!
Fermented Beancurd Roasted Chicken @ Canton-I
Dried Scallops & Squash in Superior Pork Ribs Soup (RM28)
I love soup. Do you love soup? Well then, it’s worth a try! The soup is really smooth and sweet.
Enough for about 3-4 pax maybe.?
Braised Garoupa With Pork Belly (RM32)
They use roasted belly pork for better flavouring. (: It has deep fried garoupa, tofu, and mushroom.
Sauteed Chives With Dried Shrimps (RM16.80)
Crispy dried prawns, anchovies, cuttlefish, crunchy bean sprout, carrots and onions with cashew nuts.
Stir fried Glass Noodles and Prawns in Lobster Sauce (RM28)
A little dry.. I’d prefer the prawns peeled though. Of course, for presentation purposes.. /:
Deepfried Whitebait (RM12)
One of the perfect finger food. Before you know it, it’ll be finished by others! It’s really yummy, salted and peppered.
Sauteed Seafood with XO Sauce (RM35)
Birds Nest Congee!
Steamed Golden Egg Yolk Custard Bun (RM6.80 a basket)
Really, the best. I really like Canton-I’s desserts. Really creative and delicious.
Steamed Mr. Piggy Bun with Red Bean Paste (RM8.80)
Perfect cheat-sheet to make your kiddies eat!
I shared half with my mum, and how I regret I didn’t take another one. It was really yummy!
Signature Egg Tarts (RM4.80)
Not the best I’ve had so far.. /: Disappointed. The custard isn’t as nice as the one I had in Penang. Even the pastry isn’t fluffy.
Another of their creation. Swan-shaped wu kok. We didn’t try it though. I took the picture from the new menu.

Passing by Jusco, I saw a new donut shape. LOL. Look like a bangle, look like the baby toy too! O_o
Got 2 pairs of free contacts from Fresh Looks. Rawr!
I had 6 main courses with a selection of buffet appetizer and dessert that costs only RM128++ (minimum 3 persons) at Impiana Hotel’s coffee house, Tonka Bean Café. I’ve never seen such a huge coffee house, high ceiling with lovely decorations. Although it was quite warm, I loved the ambiance. Overall, I like this hotel very much. I went there with my mum and my brother.. There were 2 other unfriendly Star reporters with us. Gosh, I cannot stand them..
Signature Yee Sang with Smoked Tuna with BB Abalone and Avacado (RM98++ for 5 persons and RM168++ for 10 persons)
I love yee sang! But the best one is the one we have back in my grandma’s house in Penang. Extra salmon.. Extra everything. As for this one, it’s really quite nice, but I wouldn’t pay for such tiny abalones. I’d rather get big ones but lesser.. The avacado is a little hard, I almost mistaken them for young mango. My mum liked the smoked tuna. I didn’t really get a good piece, only a tiny half piece. ): But it was quite lovely, despite how small it was. It’s slightly salty and sweet. Not their fault that I got a small piece, probably it broke into two while we were mixing the yee sang.
Oh, oh ! Remember to pay extra attention to the plate! The decoration on the plate may look like its from the plate but its real! You CAN eat them!
Shark Fin and Crab Meat Soup with BB Abalone and Fatt Choy
The soup is really nice but excess crab meat! The crab meat overpowered the shark fin.. Oh by the way.. I am officially allergic to crab meat! ): My throat feels hot and itchy..
Steamed Cod Fillet with King Soy Sauce
A simple dish which is just so gorgeous. You can really taste the freshness of the cod fish. I wouldn’t like it if it’s made into curry, or with heavy gravy. Soy sauce is just nice to give a little taste to the fish.
Stir Fried Sea Tiger Prawns with Chinese BBQ Sauce
Fresh sea tiger prawns.. Checked. Good sauce.. Checked.
Wok Fried Black Pepper Wagyu Beef with Capsicum and Onion
First piece got me thinking.. I thought its usually the thick blackpepper sauce..? This tastes weird.. *takes another piece* Hey, its sweet and sour AND blackpepper-ish.. Which is actually nice, but quite unusual, don’t you think? They’ve added vinegar, soy sauce, LP sauce, ketchup, blackpepper and worchestire sauce
Clay Pot of Dried Oyster, Fatt Choy, Mushroom and Broccoli
Not my kind of dish. This is getting SO boring. Not only Impiana Hotel, mind me, I’m not offending. I’m just quite sick of this dish.. It’s not exciting.
Cantonese Noodle with Grass Prawns, Ginger and Spring Onion
I love the noodle but I was already to full to consume anything else.
They have a chocolate fountain.. Which different things to dip with.
Tiramisu. It’s actually not bad! If you scrap the cream off..
After lunch, we went to One Utama and walked around.. There were so many cheong sams and decorations on sale. The whole place is so red! At about 4.30pm, we picked up our Chinese New Year Treasure Pot from Dragon-I. RM388++!! For at least.. 5-6 persons, it’s actually quite worth it.. They have prawns, abalones, scallops, money bag, roast duck, chicken and vegetables..
I love you, Victor Lee.
