earlier we looked at a few restaurants in sutera mall like 大上海, evergreen, 客人来..
we decided on peking duck restaurant, Restoran Pekin Sutera 五福北京城…it was an excellent choice..
we didn’t have reservation…the aircon area was full.
so we got a table at a hall that they said have blowers/ventilators…this hall has high ceiling & the tables were spaced far apart. actually it felt more spacious than the aircon hall.
we surveyed the live seafood tanks…
everything was expensive – fish, crab, lobster, prawns etc…everything singapore price or more expensive c/w promotion prices at singapore seafood restaurants eg ah yat abalone forum restaurant…
so we just forgot about these live seafood, & the peking duck also, since we just had very nice meng meng roast duck 阿明帝皇鸭 for lunch…
2 bros made very good food orders. all the dishes were just great!
we had a great starter platter (top photo). all the items were good, crispy, fresh, nicely done.
the smoked trotters were ok, sauce a bit overpowering.
the best dish for me was the sea cucumbers with brocoli.
sea cucumbers were very thick, superb texture & taste delicious, and enough for 2 rounds (2 servings/pax for 10pax) and maybe some pieces more..
it was expensive dish, but quite good value vs singapore prices for such a dish..
the roast chicken was excellent!
skin was so crispy, and the meat was moist, tender & sweet. among the very best roast chicken i had.
i almost like never order chicken dishes outside. this one i will definitely order again when i come.
we had the lala. this one was fried with garlic & maybe chai poh, can’t really remember…
quite ok…but then i had tasted better preparations…
and i must say the price RM67.50 didn’t mke sense to me, when the roast chicken is RM48…
and we had 元蹄braised trotters.
this was good too, the trotters skin & tendons nicely gelatinous & the braise was flavourful. the lean meat was not sinewy & quite tender & moist..overall a very good braised trotter.
romaine lettuce 油麦菜 was competent, a nice dish, nothing special maybe, but still quite nice complement to the other dishes.
overall the price was RM580nett for 10pax…i thought really quite ok c/w say lunch RM425..
this is restaurant setting, and several dishes like the sea cucumbers, roast chicken were outstanding & the braised trotters were very good, and the starter platter was also a pretty good standard dish, so price was quite good relative to lunch.
