Teow Chew Meng Restaurant @ Sunway Tunas

This is not the first time we dine at Teow Chew Meng Restaurant but the last time we went is about a year ago. So, one saturday evening, my hubby took me and my parents there for dinner at Sunway Tunas Teow Chew Meng.



Hubby ordered 2 bowls of the usual Mee Sua Tow, which is the signature dish of the restaurant...still maintain the same standard. Dad and hubby love it. With vinegar added, it taste so good!



My mom and I wanted to try something different, so we ordered Tom Yam Seafood. It was sour and hot...just as I like it! :) I'm quite satisfied with my order, cuz lots of ingredients can be found in my bowl. A big prawn, 2 pcs of fish fillet, fish balls, crab meat stick, shiitake mushroom, and lots of squid. What can I say? Shyiok!!



Hubby ordered Honey Lemonade... While the rest of us just had our hot Chrysanthemum tea.



Apart from the main dishes, we also ordered Apple Salad with soft bean curd. It wasn't new to me as we order this dish almost every visit. The bean curd must be their home made. It's so soft and fragrant, and was perfectly deep fried till the outside layer is crispy.



We also ordered 3 taste oyster. It is something new to us. However, it's not up to my expectation. It's too sour to my liking. The oyster just taste average and the serving is pretty small.



The oyster dish comes with some toast for you to enjoy the gravy.


Dine in Teow Chew Meng Restaurant is never cheap. The food cost us RM80++.

Update: 
Revisited this place in July 2010. Noticed that the food serving size reduced a lot, but the charges remain the same.
Revisited on 15th Oct 2010. The food quality is deteriorated tremendously. The mee suah tow was  the mee suah "tiao" and the portion of bee hoon in my seafood bee hoon soup was a terrible huge serving. Almost all the soup was absorbed by the bee hoon. I saw few foreign workers working in the kitchen. Was one of them the cook?

Teow Chew Meng...

we went there mainly for two things, mee sua tow and seafood tomyam.... Got to admit their mee sua tow is quite nice and the portion is just right for Tua Pui.. Fei Fei always the first to go for 2nd helping one... But then this is not cheap, sometimes we prefer to go to Bee Hooi @ Pulau Tikus for cheaper version...

Wah... never go there for some time lioa..maybe can tempt Fei Fei to go again heheheh

The Tom Yam seafood looks good and is new to me. Usually go for the mee sua tow only .

Penang tua pui, usually we just try their mee sua tow, really nice. It tastes like sharkfin soup with the vinegar added. LOL.
and now I fall in love with their tomyam seafood already. :) but then RM 10 per bowl is quite expensive lo. Noticed that the volume is not fix, sometime may be more, and sometime may be less. No "quantity control".

ck lam, be prepared, the tomyam is very sourish, but I like it! :)

J2Kfm, you should give it a try. So far, I have not heard of bad comment on their mee sua tow.
Oyster taste so so lo, may be we were too full by the time it's served.

I have eaten many times at their PJ and Subang Jaya outlets but they don't allow cameras in their shop so I have never done any review on them. I like their mee sua and the boiled octopus.

Little Inbox said...

PureGlutton, thanks for dropping by. I tried their octopus before. Quite nice. Must be taken when it's still hot.
