Chinese New Year Feasting @ Green View Restaurant, Petaling Jaya

More feasting pictures again! This time round it was a dual celebration since it's my aunt's birthday on Thursday. My mother decided to bring her out for an impromtu dinner here as she likes their Sang Har Meen. Traditionally you eat noodles on your birthday as the Chinese believe this means long life. No Yee Sang this time round as my mother was getting quite sick of it having eaten it eight times already.

Not sure if any of you are experiencing slight problems with the quality of food during this festive season but I've been finding items not fresh or not up to the mark. I suspect the restaurants had to make do with no supplies last week by stocking up items hence the food quality has been compromised. It happened again for us here as the prawns weren't that fresh but the noodles were as delicious as ever.

We ordered their Sengkua or Hairy Gourd with Home made tofu which is my family's favourite. Everyone loved this as the vegetable was tender versus the old ones you get at other restaurants.

Since it was only the four of us as Splashie Boy had another dinner at Hyatt Saujana, we ordered more noodles. Another of my favourites, their Fried Tung Fun. My mother had asked them to mix beehoon in the noodles as they believe eating too much Tung Fun is bad for your health as it does not digest that well. This was extremely delish and came with lots of calamari rings, prawns and bean sprouts.

We saw the other table enjoying this hence we ordered the Nam Yue Pork Ribs. Unfortunately it looked better than it tasted. The meat was slightly tough and lacked much taste.

After dinner, my mother was miffed with my aunt and uncle as they beat her to footing the bill last night especially since she was the one who had invited them for dinner. Hence you don't see any prices for the items we ordered since I didn't get a chance to look at the bill. The food was actually too much for the four of us hence we had to doggy bag the noodles and pork ribs home. Incidentally, business in Green View is super good as the place was packed that it was super noisy there. They have even expanded and now occupy four shoplots. For my last visit to Green View,

hey boo, i usually go to Greenview during CNY too :). similarly, seng kua tau foo is a must for us too, it's yummy. Their herbal chicken and steam mayau fish were pretty good too.

Unknown said...

isnt it sengkua and not sengkuang?

boo_licious said...

sc - yes, the herbal chicken is yummy too but don't think we have tried the steamed mayau fish before

lanatir - thxs for the tip. Have changed it already.

Babe_KL said...

always love their sang har meen, the other is kong nam meen.

Tummythoz said...

Expanding again? Hope it doesn't turn out to be like Paris at SS2. My latest visit there was quite disappointing. Sad.

Swee San said...

oops, abit late. but happy chinese new year

Precious Pea said...

Boo, the prawns look so yummy especially the roe part. Too bad it was not fresh. Their suckling pig also not bad.

Tummythoz, I agree with you, New Paris sucks..but still packed with people.

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Sang har meen with not so fresh prawns must be disappointing. I normally go there for their sang har meen and salted egg yolk crabs. Yums!!

Xiu Long Bao said...

hmm...but i heard from my frens dat green view's food is not dat good actually. Esp the 'yee sang' which is quite bad.

fatboybakes said...

babe, how bizarre, ive never heard of kong nam mee until last night, when i had it for the very first time in tang palace. (dynasty hotel). i LURVE it. you mean greenview oso got ah? yummy, must try.

but boo, we also found the standards in greenview jatuh a bit. we used to park our asses there every sunday night for family dinner. and the last time we were there oso the prawns not fresh, and it wasnt even CNY

mh said...

Green View's prawn noodle really not bad, I visited early this month, luckily the prawns were fresh. We tried the pork rib as well but ours is soft and good, price at RM26.

Babe_KL said...

FBB, so freaky one? hahaha... i like kong nam meen bcos it has lots of ingredients - meat, prawns, squid, bell peppers, cabbage etc etc... quite a number of dai chow place have this noodle

flymeng said...

WOW! The Sang Har Meen looks yummy.
Have you ever tried the Sang Har Meen and Cantonese style beef Hor Fun near by the Selangor Club/Jalan Tun Perak area? The stall is in a wide alley under some trees. The stall is pretty famous. There is another good stall which is on Jalan Imbi coffee shop across from a playground. Sorry I cannot be more accurate about the locations.

boo_licious said...

babe kl - yeah, I love their sang har meen too but kinda dissapointing abt their prawns.

tummythoz - it looks like kitchen extension as the dining area is quite small.

swee - gong xi gong xi! Hope you're celebrating CNY in Sydney in a big way.

precious pea - yeah, we have eaten their suckling pig before, not bad.

lemongrass - don't think we have tried their ham tam crabs as we usually have the one with the sauce.

xiu long bao - dunno as I didn't eat the yee sang there this year but I felt food not up to std.

fbb - that's sad as I love their sang har meen!

tekko - guess it was not our nite then as I didn't like the pork ribs.

babe - LOL, next time we have gathering we should order Kong Nam Meen.

flymeng - not sure abt the Jalan Tun Perak place but the Imbi one you mention is Soo Kee. I find their Sang Har Meen's quality has dropped. Not as nice as long ago.
