Restaurant Ang Kee (2nd Post), SS2, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Mom-in-law-to-be was in town over the weekend, so we had a little family gathering over dinner at Ang Kee Restaurant. It was a crowded Saturday night, we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. As we waited, we saw many tables with a hollowed-out pumpkin with filling. It looked rather unique and we wanted to try it, but unfortunately, it was sold out. So we ordered these instead......

Braised Black Pepper Long Bone Ribs (RM28.00 for 2 ribs). The meat was very tender and separated easily from the bones. As far as ribs go, these had a lot of meat, and from the looks of it, the ribs were cooked in slow heat for a long time. Taste-wise, it was pretty good, though I prefer my ribs bbq-ed and slathered with sweet sauce. Hubby-to-be had a field day cleaning out the bones.

Had to let mom and family try the famous Butter Mantis Prawns in creamy gravy (RM15.00). As expected, everyone loved this rich, decadent dish.

The Spicy Nyonya Chicken (RM16.00) reminded us of Thai fried chicken. The chicken was coated and fried in spicy batter, and the dish topped with generous heaps of onions and a sweet-sour lime gravy.....tasted really tangy, this dish can really give you onion breath.

Had to try the much-hyped Tofu Egg (RM8.00). Silky soft tofu, wrapped in fried eggs and then steamed in soya sauce + Chinese wine (the wine was slightly overwhelming). This unique combination is one of Ang Kee's signature dishes.

Ang Kee's version of 4 Heavenly King vegetables; consisting of brinjal, long beans, okra and 4-angle beans stir fried with belacan. At RM8.00, we had a pretty generous helping.

Plain rice was RM1.00/plate, Chinese tea was RM5.00/pot for 5. The total bill came up to RM85.00 for 5 diners, not too pricey considering we went home stuffed to the neck, finishing every delicious morsel on all the plates. Now that's what I call a great meal!
