Regal House @ One Bangsar
January 20, 2010
Can three Chinese restaurants survive at One Bangsar? Of course, Bangsar Seafood Garden has the edge, but House of Tang is still hanging in there after over a year. The latest entry is Regal House, which offers non-halal fare that's worth a try.
Kataifi wasabi prawns. A creative experiment that came out crisp, hot and not oily at all. Too bad the flavours were too subtle to leave a lasting impression.
Double-boiled chicken soup with sugarcane and water chestnuts. Lacked the sweetness that we prefer in Chinese soups, but tasted healthy and nourishing.
Steamed pomfret. Seemed reasonably fresh, but not really memorable.
Roast duck with wasabi sauce. A strange, superb creation, borrowing both French and Japanese elements; the meat was lusciously tender and flavourful _ everything that the best kind of duck should be.
