Each visit I come to Kuchai Lama, I thought of visiting this place as I thought they serve tea-infused dishes. Little did I know they serve more in terms of tea range but food is the same dao chao like other places. They do have something special like some big shelled mollusc.
The first dish we ordered was the Braised Beancurd Sea Cucumber (RM 28) whereby the beancurd was soft and silky but the sea cucumber was too hard and rubbery to be chewed.
Anyway, since the whole fish cost more than RM 78, we ordered the Simmered Marble Goby Fish in Claypot (RM 48). It came together with oily pork meat. Though it was in claypot, the sauce was not salty at all, which is a good point. However, I never really liked any fish fillet to be deep fried so I could not find myself liking this one.
The other dish was Tea King Deep Fried Spareribs which warrants a minimum of 2 quantities, each at RM 15. It was a little too oily for me as I am not a fan of deep fried or fried food. I did not taste the tea inside at all though undeniably, this dish is quite tasty despite having a lot of lard fat.
Overall, the food is average, perhaps for a first try is alright since I am not a big fan of pork or meat or fried food. But it seems to be very popular because all the tables were booked and we only got our table because the person booked for 7.30 pm.
