重庆老火锅 Kelawai Chong Qing Lao Huo Guo Georgetown

重庆老火锅 Kelawai Chong Qing Lao Huo Guo Georgetown located along Jalan Kelawai situated in a bungalow, ample of car park available in front of the restaurant. Inside of the restaurant are nicely decorated with Chinese theme with a small “river”. Our first impression one Chong Qing Steamboat is all about spicy but here they not only offer Steamboat instead Dry Pot, a-la-cart dishes and BBQ are also available.

RM2 per head for dipping sauce & fruits. More than 30 different type of dipping sauce available, it just too many to name all. The combination can be as many as you want but in order to get a good bowl of dipping sauce we found Sesame Sauce, Coriander, Garlic and Sesame is a must. Unlimited supply of watermelon or other fruits of the days.

We had twin pot with 干锅螃蟹 Hot “Dry Pot” with Flower Crab – Market Price and 药膳菌菇鸡汤 Herbal Mushroom Soup RM12.50. Dry Pot are filled with fresh flower crab, potato, onion, spices and chili. Crab fully absorb the spice and chili fragrance, it taste quite spicy with a little bit of numb feeling. After enjoying crab they will then pour in spicy soup for steamboat. Herbal Mushroom Soup taste a little bit sweet, it is good for those who doesn’t prefer spicy.

重庆水煮鱼 Chong Qing Boiled Fish RM48 is one of the signature classic food from Chong Qing, it has over 100 years of history. Fish are sliced into big pieces then cook with hot chili oil and soup with assorted vegetable. Fish meat are very soft and delicious.

We follow traditional way of eating Ramadan buffet which is to break fast by eating Dates Fruits first, 8 different type of dates available but we only manage to try 2 which are Tunisia & Safia, Tunisia is coated with a layer of sugar while Safia is dried on outer layer. Both are equally sweet and delicious to get start with.

Moving on to main dish counter, assorted traditional Malay cuisine such as Kacang Panjang Goreng, Sambal Taukua, Sotong Goreng Kunyit, Daging Rendang, Ikan Masak Lemak and many more dishes. Sotong Goreng Kunyit is my favorite as it has very strong Kunyit fragrance and it doesn’t has chewy texture.

Signature of the night is Kambing Golek, whole lamb is perfectly marinated and grilled to perfection. It has very strong flavor on skin and meat are extremely succulent, so delicious that i ate a few plate of it (small plate…).
