Chinese Recreation Club (CRC)

I think many have heard about CRC Restaurant, the Chinese Recreation Club in Jalan Padang Victoria. I only know this restaurant cook delicious Cantonese Cuisine, and also Teow Chew Cuisine. One of their famous is the Lobster Birthday Noodle. That plate of noodle at least costs RM100 and above minimum.

Anyway, I didn’t order that expensive noodle, but something simple and nice. It was after viewing the E&O show houses, all of us, were hungry and didn’t know what to have for late lunch. Suddenly, all of us craving for Chinese Food, then, my sister suggested this place for lunch.

So, how simple is simple for the lunch?? [grin]
Simple as in one steam fish.

Chicken Dice in Claypot with Salted Fish.

Stir Fried Green Spinach.

And, a plate of Steam Beancurd with Mushroom and Chicken Dice spread on top of the beancurds.

The dishes that serving are delicious, and big serving. Especially the Chicken Dice in Claypot with Salted Fish, it was such a nice smell when they served. The beancurd was smooth like “Tau Foo Fah” (in Cantonese), or “Tau Hua” (in Hokkien).

As for the fish, they steamed it within the right time frame, cuz, the fish meat is so soft and juicy. It was indeed a good meal for the day.
Though salted fish to many people may think it’s an inexpensive stuff, but it blends well with other dishes like that. The aroma was making everyone even more hungry.

Hi Daphne, this is call great minds thinks alike.

Hi Joe, I didn't take the head portion. It looks like the fish without the head huh?? hahahaha... In fact, we were asking for ham yu pork meat, they said they dont have. So, we went for the chicken dice lor.

Hi Ling239, hahahah... when I see you posting, I'll ask myself the same question too, why am I not in KL?!

Hi Sweet Jasmine, ya ya ya, you're right. Oh ya, the tag, ya, I saw that... yet to have the idea how to do it. Will do, no worries...
