Diamonds in my rice.

When I was back last weekend, I brought my family out for dinner as an early birthday celebration for my dad, my treat.

I texted him earlier on, asking him where did he want to go for dinner, and he told me that he will decide.

We ended up at Gu Yue Tien at Chulan Square (opposite Pavilion), an unsettling feeling in my stomach 'cause I vaguely remembered my dad told me that it's the most expensive restaurant in KL. -_-

Sure enough, not long after we were seated, my dad started doing a brief intro of the restaurant to my grandparents, about how the restaurant is arguably one of the best in town, and surely one of the most expensive in KL.

Gulp.

Doesn't help that he ordered dishes which sounded really fancy. Why, even the fried rice that he ordered was called Rich Man fried rice ('yao chin lou chao fan' in cantonese) WTF.


Gu Yue Tien is apparently well known for their ala carte dishes, i.e. each person gets an individual portion, quite unlike the usual Chinese meals.



We had sliced conch (a type of sea snail) in a refreshing, slightly sour, tangy sauce as a starter.




Right before this dish came up, my dad told my grandpa, "Oh ya, you eat half boiled egg every morning right, I ordered one for you" while my grandpa look confused, hahaha.

It turned out to be braised sauce with little cubes of foie gras in the egg shell! Along a perfect half boiled egg yolk (I don't know where the egg white went wtf)! Magnificent.




Grilled giant scallop with foie gras to top it off, and jackfruit sauce lightly dribbled over it.

You heard me right, jackfruit sauce!! My dad's favorite dish in the restaurant.




Pork ribs, lightly fried to perfection. It was just the right blend of tender flesh and fats. I hate fats of any type! But this was just heavenly...




Said Rich Man fried rice wtf.


My dad right before we digged into the rice:
"Be careful ar, very hard"
Us: *confused*
Dad: "Got diamonds inside la" WTF


There was nothing expensive or out of the norm in the fried rice (and definitely no diamonds wtf), other than pumpkin cubes, but it was very fragrant and yummy nonetheless. :)



And for dessert, we had FRIED WATERMELON!








Watch this short video below:








Tada! They served black vinegar with it.

Very, very interesting. ;)





Mandatory family shot. Will my stupid sisters come home already!
