Restoran Sek Yuan, Pudu

Tucked away in a corner of KL is this dated famous restaurant. Despite the changes in the city, this restaurant managed to retain much of its old-world charms. The only difference would probably be that they have expanded to include an air-conditioned wing in a shoplot right next to the original. Needless to say, we chose the air-conditioned one for our dinner. It was a very hot night OK? :P

If you are not looking for it, this restaurant could be easily missed. The shop's name was not exactly well-lit and it was tucked into a small dark alley. The lit-up small "name-plate" was really easily missed from the main road especially if you are not going at a low speed.

What did I say? Old-school charms. Check out their assorted memorabilia from different times in the past. I love their bamboo-themed bar *slash* counter.

This is the non-air-conditioned wing or outlet. It is actually right next to the air-conditioned one so if you would prefer the original setting, this would be the one you need to go into. :P

We started off with the usual nuts (not sure if it's complimentary). The broad nuts were nyum and crunchy, but I guess you could probably get any of these from the usual supermarket-packed ones.

LOL. Yes, I must take photo of every single thing I consumed. LOL. It's Chinese Tea in case you missed it. :P

The Pi-pa duck here was AMAZING! Crispy skinned duck with flavoursome tender meat, paired with sweet plum sauce. We couldn't get enough even though it's half a duck between the three of us!

The fried (fake) shark's fin is actually fried vermicelli with egg. I love this dish even though I still think my aunt made an even better one! Haha. It's not as salty as I would like but the fragrance from the "wok-hei". We didn't bother eating it much with the lettuce even though we were supposed to. 

The stir-fried vegetables was also pleasant but it was not as out-of-this-world as the rest.

Overall, I feel this restaurant deserves a visit; if just for the atmosphere alone.
