Restoran Tak Fok is famous for crabs, lobsters and such..and well, during my visit, over half of the people at my table had issues with cholesterol – so I guess you know where this post is heading- dining at a restaurant that is known for crabs and not order any . When we stepped into Tak Fok, I could hear Cheng grumbling about the colour of the table cloth. Itu lah, we Chinese like red- red colour one, we see white- white table cloth, not so siok one lorrr.
The waitress appeared at our table promptly to take our order, she seemed to know well enough about the menu but I found her to be a bit cold and kinda missed the bantering, or maybe it was because she find us weird when we didn’t order any crabs or lobsters.. There was a promotion on at the moment , for any orders above RM30 in one bill, you only pay RM1 for one of dishes on the special promotional menu.
Chicken with marmite sauce 妈蜜鸡( RM14), the sliced chicken meat were tender and with a slightly sweetish taste, this was nice. I can’t stand marmite when they come in their little container..phewww..so smelly, but I find that with marmite dishes, somehow the flavour that I was adverse to will miraculously be non existent
Braised tofu with seafood 星光豆腐(RM14) – the tofu , I think these were closer to being tau-kwa as there were tougher – were deep fried and then bath in a soupy gravy. Taste wise, this was usual, nothing outstanding.
Long bone pork 一枝骨( RM26) – this was like pork ribs but then there were no big ‘central’ bone, so from the piece you see in the picture below, more than 90% was meat, and it was very good meat too, it was like a cross between roast pork and charsiu, The meat was not overly fatty, not overly lean, it was moist and tender. This was a magnificent dish. And there were some broccoli served at the side too
The total bill came to a bit less than RM75 including drinks ( herbal drink which received good comment all around) and 3 rice. The portions were not that big but I think that it managed to feed 5 of us without any problem.
Overall, an enjoyable meal, maybe next round I will visit Tak Fok again without those cholesterol laden people ( opps, I should mention that I am one of them ..) and have some crabs ! what say you ?Location No.26a, Jalan Desa Jaya, Taman Desa (Faber Plaza) Kuala Lumpur, WP Kuala Lumpur 58100 Tel : 7981 1446
