It's an urban legend that there are no good Teo Chew restaurants in Petaling Jaya. Just look at Auntie Sim who has created a boisterous kitchen devoted to traditional Teo Chew cuisine. Located in the vibrant Uptown Damansara (same row as Pappa Rich), Auntie Sim's Kitchen is open straight through from breakfast until dinner.
Teo Chew Olive Fried Rice (RM7.50) - A simple fried rice elevated by exceptional ingredients such as olive vegetables, chopped long beans and diced shrimps. Think twice before sharing this signature dish!
Braised Duck and Mixed Pork Combo (RM32) - At Auntie Sim's Kitchen, you will find familiar favorite like the Braised Duck and Mixed Pork Combo swimming in a rich umami sauce. All the proteins were well marinated and it doesn't get more Teo Chew than this dish.
Stir Fried Fish Maw with Sea Prawns (RM35) - There are many classic dishes available, but we made beeline for the stir fried fish maw and dancing prawns, topped with shaved scallions and red pepper.
Stir Fried Kai Lan - It would be a shame to miss the greens in any meal. So remember, don't let the big dishes define your experience.
Verdict: TOTALLY SMITTEN
