Gold Dragon City Two Hot Combination

Shark's Fin Soup with Prawn & Sliced Fish Maw

This isn't any ordinary shark's fin soup. The restaurant is generous with the ingredients, the shark's fin soup were served along with prawns and sliced fish maw. However, we need to comment that the fish maw were served in a rather small quantity.

Fish maw is an internal organ that controls the fish' buoyancy, so that it could stay at the current water depth, ascend, or descend without wasting energy. Fish maws are used in the food industry as a source of collagen, to nourish the skin and is beneficial for health.

Roasted Chicken with Thai Sauce
The Roasted Chicken were savored with Thai Sauce, which is sour and spicy.
Cucumbers, onions and pickled mango slices were shredded on the dish.
The roasted chicken was well done and the chicken meat was tender. The Thai sauce savors the chicken, making the dish very appetizing to the mouth.

Steamed Grouper Hakka Style
The fish was served with spring onions and soya sauce.
The Grouper fish was very fresh and the texture of the fish was very soft.

Thousand Island Sauce Prawn
The prawns were served with the shells fully peeled off, this makes it appealing to those who do not intend to dirty their hands while eating. Even my brother who dislikes eating prawns loved it! Anyway, the prawns were fresh and crunchy, it goes well with the thousand island sauce and sesame seeds.

Black Mushroom & Tao Kan with Bai Ling Mushroom

"Bai" means white in Chinese and "Ling" refers to Lanzi, a valuable edible fungus.
Bai-Ling Mushroom is low in fat, rich in protein, vitamin, carbohydrate, fungal polysaccharide and coarse fiber.

This dish is my dad's favourite as it is plain and not oily, yet appetizing, especially after eating few dishes of ''meaty'' food. The dish was also served along with steamed broccoli. It is quite refreshing while clearing your taste buds to prepare for the closing dish which is fried rice.

Fried Rice with Anchovies
The rice was very soft, starchy and a little wet, unlike other restaurants' fried rice which are usually dry.
The baby anchovies were very crunchy and goes very well with the fried rice.


Longan with Soya Milk

Crispy Pan Cake

All in all, the desserts weren't anything special.

I will rate this place a worthwhile place to go for a decent Chinese Set Dinner at a reasonable price. The serving is quite reasonably in size; even though the set dinner was prepared for ten, all of us had enough to fill up our stomach. This is surely a good place to visit if you have tight budgets and would like to have a reasonable and decent dinner.

Sukico Hainan Cafe

We have decided to visit this restaurant after reading it from a blog.The restaurant is a bit crowded in term of space with shelves on both sides of the restaurant displaying baking ingredients. The setting of the restaurant and environment inside look rather simple and ordinary but I must say that the place is very clean. The restaurant serves both Chinese's Hainanese food and Western food. The food is really nice and unique especially the "Chicken Gordon Bleu". However, the service is a little slow. One need to be patient to enjoy good food.

We have the privilege to strike a conversation with the owner of the restaurant, Mr. H. H. Tan, nicknamed "cowboy". He surely is a very humble, down-to-earth and friendly gentlemen having a lot of passion for his work. He takes pride that all his food in the restaurant is done without any preservative.

December 6, 2008. Dinner for a family of 5

We ordered 2 Grilled Fish Fillet,
3 Chicken Gordon Bleu,
2 Lemon Tea
1 Lime + Asam drink,
1 Lime Juice,
1 Chrysanthemum drink.

How much?
Grilled Fish Fillet @ RM11.80
Chicken Gordon Bleu @ RM14.80

The whole meal cost us RM79.80

Lemon Tea

Lime + Asam drink

Lime juice

Chrysanthemum drink

Grilled Fish Fillet
This dish is served along with french fries, mixed vegetables, a piece of lemon and some tartar sauce.
The batter was well done. It wasn't thick, it was a little flaky and crunchy.
Upon cutting the fish fillet, one can feel the tenderness of the fish meat. The fish meat was fresh and surprisingly, very soft.

The restaurant weren't stingy with the lemon. They gave us a quarter of a lemon.
One can get a better taste of the grilled fish by squeezing the lemon on top of it. The lemon juice enhances the flavour of the dish.

Chicken Gordon Bleu
The chicken is stuffed with cheese and turkey ham, served with french fries and mixed vegetables. The dish also comes with a special sauce that is specially prepared by the chefs themselves. You can't get it elsewhere!

Inside the chicken,

A closer look! Wow, yummy!

You can see slices of turkey ham stuffed inside the chicken, with melted cheese oozing out of the chicken.
This is a very unique way of making Chicken Gordon Bleu in Malaysia.
Upon serving, one can see the steam coming out from the dish and when eaten while it's hot, the chicken meat is very tender.
The chicken goes very well with the turkey ham and cheese. When the hot special sauce is poured over the Chicken Gordon Bleu, it enriches the taste of the dish. It was fabulous!

This dish takes some time to be prepared as the chef rolls the cheese and turkey ham with their bare hands.

Did you notice that all the dishes weren't served along with coleslaw or salad but mixed vegetables?
That makes their dishes unique. It is a like a cross-over of oriental and western food.

The mixed vegetables comes in a very small portion of carrots, button mushrooms and radish.

Comments: We enjoyed our meal here. The food were great and the prices were reasonable. We would like to come back again some time! (Maybe Christmas Eve? ). After having a chat with Mr. Tan, we found him extremely strict with his cafe's cleanliness and he always puts his customers' health as his first concern.

P.S: Sukico Hainan Cafe will be having a Christmas Eve set dinner on the 24th Dec 2008 at 7.30PM at the price of RM29.00 per person.
