For a soulful lunch, The Ding's calrose rice comes mixed with minced pork belly that's been slow-braised for 24 hours, the epitome of a warm embrace in a bowl, perfectly proportioned by every measure, from the firm, smooth grains to the savoury meat and sumptuous gravy, rounded out with greens and a great lava kampung egg (RM16.90).
For a soothing dinner, the hand-pulled mian xian rice noodles are a taste of home-cooked tradition with this restaurant's twist, submerged in a pleasantly light broth spiked with sake for a subtly sweet depth, rounded out with briny-fresh clams and mushrooms (RM18.90).
Wash down with the well-balanced LPG (RM5.90; lemongrass, pandan leaves, ginger) and the extra-mellow RGC (RM5.90; red dates, goji berries, chrysanthemum). Fun fact: The restaurant's moniker refers to the middle name of its head chef.
Lot A-G-03A, The Hub SS2, Jalan Harapan, Section 19, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
