Based on a recommendation by my mom's friend, we made our way to Cheras to try dishes from Eight Treasures restaurant. Considering how hot today was, I really did not want to leave the house so you could imagine how sour my mood was by the time we arrived.
I had no intention nor desire to eat as I sulked and wished to be anywhere but outdoors. However I left feeling a hundred times better becasue the food served was very good.
We got fish paste stuffed chillis and it's weird, because the ones we usually get at Yong Tao Fu places uses red chillis. Yet here they served us green and I really really liked them - I don't know how to explain the difference in taste but there just is. Plus it was deep fried and served piping hot, which is just the way I liked these.
This however was not my favourite because it was stir-fried petai with minced pork & bean sprouts. There was just too much of the former for me to enjoy anything about it because every piece of meat stank of the petai which I really could not stomach.
And because I wanted some green veggies to compensate the stinky dish, we got ourselve a nice plate of stir-fried HK kailan with garlic. This I liked and probably finished the entire dish myself since the other were more into the petai dish. No complaints coming from me that's for sure.
Then came the dish that I really really liked that day was the deep fried fish, one for each of us. I am not a hundred percent sure what kind of fish it was, but it tasted really good because it was well seasond before being deep fried to crisp golden perfect. Almost all the bones could be eaten and the head too because that's how crispy it was.
Even though I went there expecting the worst because of my sour mood, I do like the food served at Eight Treasures. Would probably return whenever we get the chance to.
