YUMMY HUNANESE LUNCH AT RESTAURANT YI PIN XIANG, NILAI.

Thank God Almighty for smooth and safe flight back to Malaysia. Our plane arrived at KLIA2 - Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 on Monday early morning 12.55 am. Our friend and his son from Semenyih came to pick us from the airport. He had prepared a midnight or early morning snack of hot porridge and satay for us in his house. By the time we went to bed, it was about 3.00 am.

By the time everyone was awake the next day, it was around midday. It was time to go out looking for lunch. After circling around the place, we came upon this Chinese Restaurant Yi Pin Xiang in Nilai.
The restaurant is on the first floor.

It occupies 2 shop lots. A friend familiar with the menu did the ordering of food. Hunanese dishes was a first time for some of us.

We started with an appetizer - Fried Shredded Potato.

Steamed Rice - Sunwhite Fragrant Rice (Grade AAA), served in little cute bowls.

Deep Fried Salted Eggs Pumpkin in a basket, very tasty.

Hot Pot Pig's intestine.

Boiled Fish with Bean Sprout in Hot Chili Oil. Something different but it was quite oily and spicy.

On a closer look - Treasures of fish slices, soya bean sprouts, greens and lots of dried chili and Szechuan peppercorns, etc.

Fried Balsam Pear (Bitter Melon) with Salted Egg and Preserved Century Egg.

Steamed Chicken, sprinkled with some sauce, diced peanuts and sesame seeds and diced spring onions.

Boiled Shredded Tripes with Chili Oil.

Pumpkin Porridge - on the house.
We enjoyed this porridge very much, very suitable for a hot day. And we thank Jennifer, our friend for this yummy lunch treat.

The LORD is a friend to those who fear Him.

He teaches them His covenant.

My eyes are always on the LORD,

for He rescues me from the traps of my enemies.

(Psalm 25:14-15, New Living Translation-NLT)

  19. The bean sprout-fish-chilli thing and that dish with lots of colourful chillies seem to be staples of Hunan food. I used to go to a restaurant and loved those as well. (Somehow stopped going already haha. Must start again!)
