Centrepoint Coffeehouse and Restaurant, Termeloh.

This is one really overdue post. I pun sudah lupa. If you look at the date at the bottom right corner of the photos, you'd be astonished! My apologies for this delay. This was taken on a one day trip to Temerloh during CNY. Sadly, i didn't get to drive for i was chauffuered in a Camry. After the fruitful ang pow collection session, we adjourned for lunch at this place called Centerpoint Coffee House. It's a pretty well-known establishment and the food served is definitely one of the better ones here.
The menu we had. Sorry, folks i can't translate Chinese, but this was the set we ordered.
The first dish - My FAV Yee Sang. I love Yee Sang and it's possibly one of the things i look forward to during CNY. Long live Yee Sang!
This dish was rather special, especially the one with the aluminium foil wrapping.
These are quite common in KL, but the crabstick was a bit too sweet for my liking.
This is the one that really got me hooked me on. It's chicken, wrapped in foil, cooked with herbs and spices. Absolutely delicious.
Next up was the sharks' fin soup. Tasted really good, and there was definitely a generous amount of sharks fin in it.
Next up, herbal chicken. Not a fan but when it's good, i'll go for it. It turned out rather well, and i had 4 servings! A new record for herbal chicken and me. This little girl here certainly enjoyed her herbal chicken and we were even fighting (well, sort of) for the last few bits and pieces and the gravy.
Deep fried fish with lychee. I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw it. I guess thelychee was used to inject some sweetness and fruitiness into the dish but it felt odd. The fish was great, but lychee? Sorry, it's like having a nice and healthy tuna sandwich with pieces of lard on it.
Deep fried prawns. Fresh and succulent. No complains here.
Ah, braised vegetables with pacific clam, tofu skins and prawns. I love this dish. The gravy went superbly well with the fried rice.
The fried rice didn't look good, but it was really good; heaps better than some hotels in KL. I had 3 bowls. Love it!
Dessert. Cold. A must for me. Nothing to shout about here but on a hot CNY afternoon, this was a blessing. Longans with sea coconut.
The dishes were simple, but it's just different in taste and you need not be a food connoisseur to appreciate. Iwas of course, well filled to the brim, ready for the journey back to KL, and so did this girl.
My rating: 7.5/10.
