Chao Yen @ Sunway Pyramid

December 6, 2009

Chao Yen has gotten mixed reviews over the years, but if we stick to the "Chef Speciality" items, we find that some of the food is well worth ordering.

Stewed sliced duck on tofu. Meaty and succulent. Can't ask for more than that.

Cold crab Teochew-style. Chopped up for easy eating, the crab tasted pretty fresh.

The menu listed this as pan-fried baby oyster pancake with scrambled egg. Turned out to be a boring-looking omelette, but was delicious enough to warrant a recommendation.

Bak kut teh. The only real letdown. Lots of pork, but the broth lacked flavour.

The steamed kampung chicken was OK, though there are superior versions elsewhere.

Chao Yen,
