Today is your day…

Last Friday, the 13th of January, was my sister’s birthday so of course, we went out for dinner together that evening.

She invited two of her friends as well and yes, we had the traditional Foochow longevity noodles, the mee sua, fried…

…with the “golden” eggs by the side.

The Thai-style midin (wild jungle fern) with mango and jellyfish…

…was a hit – everybody enjoyed it a lot and the Four Heavenly Kings (四大天王), fried with canned pork…

…as well. It sure was a nice change from the usual fried with sambal recipe.

My girl said that this tofu dish…

…was as nice as what we had at another place recently and yes, this one had a lot more toppings or added ingredients.

The sweet and sour fish…

…was great too – I liked how the sauce was on the light side and did not taste like tomato ketchup straight from the bottle. This was the threadfin or ngor hu in Hokkien that I do enjoy a lot – no fishy smell, no small bones and an absolute delight to eat.

We also had the Guiness stout pork…

…which was one dish that I had had a few times before but if I am not wrong, the last time was a few years ago in 2017. We also had it when my dear friends from New Zealand came to town in 2011 and in the midst of our conversation that night, somebody mentioned that previously, the owner of this restaurant was the chef at that one that unfortunately, did not survive the pandemic.

This was our 2nd time at this restaurant…

the 1st time was also on my sister’s birthday in 2020. We certainly enjoyed the food and one thing’s for sure, we would definitely be coming back here again. We also enjoyed the company that night, catching up with lost times…and yes, a very Happy Birthday once again to you again, Bea. May God bless you abundantly in the year ahead. Cheers!!!

MJ HU SEAFOOD RESTAURANT(2.291971, 111.834740) is located along Lorong Mahsuri 2, the second shop on the left after Kuching Cafe, opposite Bateras Supermarket.

  1. Again I will proclaim they are my kind of dishes to have. So this is another place added to your list of places to eat. This tofu dish looks way better than the one you have recently…. ☺️☺️. How is the pricing? Reasonable?

    I didn’t ask my sis how much she paid for everything. Should be more or less the same as the other Chinese chu-char places all over town.

    Just heard from my sis, RM240 altogether that night, inclusive of drinks. Must be that fish – ngor hu doesn’t come cheap!

  2. Many happy returns returns of the day to your sister! I do the same as her, buy a meal for my loved ones to celebrate my birthday. The dishes all look superb!

    Thank you!
    I would do the same too, no need for the hassle, no need to slave half dead in the kitchen.
    Same thing with the coming Chinese New Year reunion dinner…but my missus insists on cooking her own – can show off her cooking skills.
    I told her we are old already, can just go and eat outside…and buy home but she would not hear of it! Must be that “we are old” bit – tak nak akui! LOL!!!

  3. I think the price is quite reasonable consider you have ngor hu and pork. These 2 things are very expensive. RM240 for 6 persons. Only RM40 per head.

  4. Noodles sound like a great idea right now. Hungry.

    Funny how when I had no appetite at all and started losing weight, I had no problem at all with noodles. Could eat one whole plate, no problem at all.
