Chinese Food @ Yook Tho Yin Restaurant, Damansara Utama, PJ

It's school holidays again. Sis will be free for only 1 month and she plotted her calendar to recharge her energy to visit me this year. So, what's up for the super-makan family sama kaki (same) like mine. Chinese food is a must. Some nice food plans are in our list as shopping is not preferred by her. Eating is the best entertainment other than shopping, right?

We patronized Restoran Yook Tho Yin specially for the order-to-cook soup and pork knuckles.


Order-to-Steam Winter Melon Soup. The melon was also specially ordered to store the costly ingredients of dried scallops, gingko, crab claws and chicken meat. A true soup for any soup lovers and it's YTY's famous soup.


Yun Tai Pork Knuckles (L), also an order to cook dish was super delicious for us. Real good especially the slippery collagen skin. Since we have ordered too many large dishes, I tapao (take-away) home. Yummy, it tasted even better after 2 days with white rice and stir fried vegetables.


Deep fried tofu topped with seafood and tasty smooth pumpkin sauce were nicer than eating the older version of mun heong tofu. Hmmm... Trendy and new version Tofu with seafood in pumpkin sauce is most popular nowadays. Today, Chef are clever and creative. Pumpkin can be creatively blended to make such a nice sauce especially with its natural yelllow colour.


Mutli spicies spicy prawns in hot plate was just as nice as nyonya dish for those who loves spicy food. Specially recommended by those who never forgets eating this dish with white rice. It will be even nicer to be eaten with not too many dishes. Will be back for this dish if I am on cooking strike!


Yin Yang Kailan Vegetables, a two style cutting and cooking dish. Some restaurants have the leaves shredded finely while YTY served with bigger pieces. I think the bigger leaves are nicer and crunchier.


Stir Fry ginger, spring onions fish fillet was served last. Yet, with all the large portion of dishes we were able to eat them up. Real best, we kaki makan, really eat the kaw kaw!


This handsome roasted pork arrived first. These lovely roasted pork were gone in just a little while before the soup arrives. Top 5, roast pork in PJ are available for sale every day together with Roasted Duck.

All at about RM160.00 excluding rice and tea/drinks. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the varieties of food. Hoon, Boo and Huang, we hope you like the food which may be different from Penang. After dinner, our next destination was Niu Xe Zui, Boulevard Shopping at Ara Damansara.

We did not get there on the same day. The road leading to NXZ was teribbly jammed from FAS, the only way in to NXZ. There is an ongoing Christmas celebration of Walt Disney widely advertised throughout Malaysia. NXZ is a boring place after CNY and towards CNY this place is just as crowded as Petaling Street. Why? Go and and enjoy the jam and the squeeze. Got- try- got- experience yeh!

The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant @SS2, Petaling Jaya

** My Story and The Food **

It was Joo's 22nd birthday and as usual everyone would have a chance to celebrate in-house with a birthday cake and sumptuous eat-out dinner or lunch. Happy Birthday, Joo Joo Dear.

I have targetted Pantai Seafood sister's restaurant, The Good Old Days Restaurant for chinese food. We were a little dissapointed as the restaurant was closed not due to off day maybe for some other reasons. Next choice was, Western Food and we headed to San Francisco Steak House at Damansara Intan and was also closed. So, Wei Hoe suggested SS2, Cave Cafe for 'all-varieties-cuisine'.

The Cave Cafe was really moulded like a Cave from 1st to 4th floor. What a clever idea the Management had to attract couple, maybe only for couples as the place is perfectly ideal for privacy.

Golden Fried Tofu @ RM12.oo. The tofu were mixed with some prawns and fish paste to made the taste for aromatic.


Thai Chicken Feet @RM10.80 served with more mangoes and other pickles. The main word was Chicken Feet, but chicken feet were more humble and hidden yet hardly seen.


Carbonara @RM18.00. A pasta that got the taste of steak house and thumbs up, Cave Cafe Chef.


Mango Prawns @RM30.00. Not a value for money menu as I reviewed it expensive. The prawns were a mixture of medium and small prawns.


4 Da Tin Wang aka 4 types of beans @ RM15.00 (small). Normal yet price a bit too high.


Oriental Ostrich @ RM35.00 (large). Something different for the birthday girl as she's a die-hard chicken eater.


Lamb Rib Curry tasted like the Japanese Curry. Price at RM20.00 (small) as we were still not satisfied and full.


1 pot for 2 pax Sense of Flower Tea @ RM10.80. The pot and cups used were just as cute and nice.

** The Ambience and Concept **
When we were greeted by the lady-boss, she asked "would you like to dine at open area or cave concept?" So it's interesting to have such choice and why not we choose to dine at the dim lited Cave with pipe-in music and centralised air cond.


The passage to the Cave Private rooms of 2 or more persons.


Open Area Dining at 4th Floor for group celebrations for those who are tired of p r i v a c y. Open up everything!

A nearer and clearer view of the individual rooms.

A nice and adventurous dinner experience in a Cave. Feel free to press the bell to call for services as 10% service charge and Govt Tax 5% were imposed. We were kinda happy and satisfied with all-taste-food like Chinese, Thai, Western, Japanese and Indian cuisine. Thanks WH for paying RM2XX.00. But, Mr Manager, we hope you can adjust your smiles to a higher volume than the pipe-in music!

Josephine Pineapple

Josephine, you are so sweet and admired by pineapple lovers. Just great at those days we were just eating the typical pineapple without name, so called Pineapple.


So tempting and it's one of my favorite Malaysian fruits. At Pasar Tani, 2 big fat ones for only RM5.00. At fruit stall, 1/6 piece cost RM1.20. So don't be lazy, buy them back, cut them neatly and chill them in the fridge. Emmm, yummy and juicy. Saliva dripping here as I do not have them anymore in my fridge.
