Lunch at Restoran Yan Yan

Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal

During the 3rd day of Chinese New Year. My paternal side of the family gathered for a simple lunch in Restoran Yan Yan (人人茶餐厅) in Taman Sri Sinar, Segambut. We chose here because it's near my big aunt's house, as she is the most senior so all younger uncles and aunt have to come here lol. I'm no complaining because my place is in the same taman. Makes no different though because I have to go downtown to Bukit Bintang to fetch my aunt and cousin whom came to visit us from Hong Kong.

My niece Ruth just had some chocolate.

My 表妹, Elaine playing with my nephew Noah.

We decided to have chicken rice (鸡饭), roasted pork (烧肉), BBQ pork (叉烧) and of course the imported roasted goose (烧鹅) from Hong Kong.

Roasted Pork (烧肉)

To my surprise, the roasted pork here is very good. The skin is crispy and the layer of fat and meat is very balanced. Very fast it was cleared up by us. The oil rice here is fluffy and nice too.

Rating: 4/5

BBQ Pork (叉烧)

While the BBQ Pork here is tender and can easily melt in your mouth. It's good but not as good as the one I had in Famous Seremban Favourites. Still it's good enough for us hungry people.

Rating: 3.75/5

The roasted chicken here is not too bad too, crispy and smooth skin.

Rating: 3.5/5

Roasted chicken.

The roasted goose.

The roasted goose was kept in the fridge overnight, we asked the boss to reheat and chop it up for us. He even garnished it with cucumber and spring onion, so nice of him. The skin is not that crispy anymore as compared to the left thigh I ate yesterday. Oh, for your information, this is the second goose, the first one which I snitched the left thigh was left in my friend's house lol. Nevertheless, it's still juicy and it's not as gamey as duck meat. I also have to stressed here that the goose is not from Yung Kee as someone commented in the previous post asked. My cousin just booked it in a Chinese restaurant in Yuen Long near her place. So, I guess Yung Kee is not the only restaurant that can dish out a good roasted goose in Hong Kong.

Rating: 4/5

The younger generation, my sister on my left, my brother-in-law on her left and my cousins.

After lunch, we young people went to Red Box in the Curve to sing karaoke. It's the first time I sing karaoke with so many cousins. We had good fun.

The chicken rice operates daily during lunch time. At night there's a dai chao there also very good and priced reasonably.
