Ying Ker Lou Hakka Cuisine @ Sunway Pyramid

This place has probably been blogged a thousand times. Actually this is not my first time here, but the last time I was here was probably a year ago. Having some Hakka food once in a while is very comforting as I find their dishes very close to home-cooked food. My ex-colleague asked me where to go for lunch and since Sunway Pyramid is very near to the office, I suggested this place.

I like Hakka cuisine because according to their traditions, Hakka cuisine should be "salty, oily, flavourful and preserved" and which I find very true indeed! After all, Hakka cuisine is one of the more well-known/popular chinese cuisine after Cantonese and Teochew.

What I liked about their menu is that - a big variety of pork dishes! They have a vast array of pork cooked in various styles which I really wanted to try them all one day!

The Crispy Pork Belly with Fermented Beancurd (RM22) is a very nice dish because the outer layer of the pork is crispy. It's nice to go with some beer I think. The Stuffed Dry Oyster Hakka Style (RM33) is what I think fish paste with a stuffed dry oyster in it. It was huge! I only managed to have one as it was very filling. The vege dish is just a common sauteed baby "pak choy" with abalone sauce (RM15).

The "Dong Jiang" Style stuffed beancurd in Hot Pot (RM23) is a indeed flavourful with the additions of meat & fish paste to the beancurd. I like this dish very much as it's salty enough to give the beancurd some flavours.

And we end our lunch with the Hakka BanTiao (RM16.90) which is their own home-made flat egg noodles fried with prawns, mushroons and leek. Since we did not order any rice, we thought why not try the noodles and the waitress did recommend a good dish.

There's only 3 of us and we are so stuffed after the lunch. I guess my cravings for Hakka food had just been fulfilled and hopefully I can come here soon again to try other dishes. It's not cheap and I think the prices is a lil steep too. It's definitely not an everyday chinese restaurant but once in a while I would come here. The outlet in Sunway is the quietest among all the other outlets if you want to skip the waiting queue.

At the same time, my colleague was telling me that he wanted to change his telco to Celcom for his Blackberry Storm and I said, why not? There's an ongoing promotion from Celcom during this World Cup period and if you want to grab this deal, log on here. You can even win Blackberry Curve by joining their contests. There's Bearnalty & Bear Hunt! Check it out!

Traditional Hakka food is farmer’s food, lack refinement and means to fill the stomach only.

Traditional Cantonese and Shanghainese food is more refine and can be served in banquet.

Anon: But I like it!

Thinker: Yeah it's hidden in a corner, just beside the teochew restaurant Chao Yen. Yeah as long as it tastes good, I'm ok!

Sean: I didn't try the lei cha cos I'm not a fan of that. I must say that the variety is good!

ULi: Yeah, go try it one day!

Cath J: It's Hakka Cuisine and I guess people are still mostly into Cantonese cuisine.

STP: Go and try it and tell us if it's any good!

Anon: Oh well, it all depends on modifications and presentation of the food.

I have been to Ying Ker Lou at The Curve but only tried their "pun choy" - didn't quite like it.

Maybe I'll try other stuffs next time : )

Foongpc: Oh really? I haven't try their pun choy before.
