~* Lim's Farewell Dinner *~

Before everyone got very busy during Chinese New Year, i thought it would be a great idea if we had a farewell dinner with Lim who just left to Australia for studies on the 6th day of Chinese New Year. The dinner was at Jia Mei Seafood Steamboat Restaurant, Sunway Mentari on the Thursday right before Chinese New Year.

I always wanted to go there after listening to boyfriend on how he could even fry a Taiwanese sausage there besides having steamboat. Yes, unlimited Taiwanese sausages since it is a buffet style.

Boyfriend did most of the cooking on that evening. Look at what he used to fry the raw ingredients.

Some of the raw ingredients available.

Unlike Yuen Buffet Steamboat Restaurant, Jia Mei offers pork. From the sliced meat to innards and processed food. Beef? Yes, sliced beef - the only beef-y ingredient there.

The girls took pictures while the guys were cooking.

Cooked pork intestine, Taiwanese sausage, luncheon meat, yuk kon/bak gua/dried meat.

Jia Mei provided the customers with butter to fry anything on this metal thingy and we tried cooking:

Garlic Butter Shrimps.

Garlic Butter Scallops with cili padi and lime juice.

Fried lala(!) using the ginger chili sauce provided by the restaurant which was supposed to be dippping sauce.

A group picture is a must!

Our favourite on that evening was black pepper lamb (no picture here) that we had few rounds of it. It was well marinated. Anyway, for seafood steamboat, i would prefer Yuen. Jia Mei has too much of processed food and non-seafood ingredients! Perhaps, they should just cut off the word "seafood" from their name. And the tomyam soup did not taste like tomyam. Instead, it was more to mah laat (spicy) soup.

Total damage was RM21.00 per person inclusive of the Chinese tea we had. Getting there is not a problem if you know the location of Yuen. Assuming you are going there from KL using the Federal highway, you will need to make a U-turn, keep to your left and immediately turn left at the first junction to Sunway Mentari. Then, you will reach to a junction and Yuen will be on your left. But you need to turn right and go all the way straight until you see My Cafe on your left. Turn into that road and Jia Wei is at the same row as My Cafe.
