Update: Richwell Restaurant has closed down
Before CNY, I promised F.C. a dinner at Richwell to try out their Sang Har Yee Mee & roasted pigeon. He often drove past this place thinking that it might be an expensive place to dine (read: “Rich”well) so I decided to bring him there for a treat after a long tiring week at work.
A little background on F.C.: He used to be a chef for a Chinese restaurant that served roasted pigeon. Back then, he sold set lunch meals with half-roasted pigeon for less than RM 9.90 and it was a hit. To reminisce, I ordered a roasted pigeon for us to try.
RM 35 per pigeon
The familiar looking dish that had the familiar taste. It was crunchy & juicy, but really oily. F.C. thought it was up to par and the price was reasonable. I don’t mind it but I can’t stand oily food these days so I might have to reconsider twice before ordering this the next time.
Salted fish pork belly claypot, RM 15
I was amazed with the generous amount of pork belly that they gave. It’s a childhood favourite dish that went well with rice, but F.C. thought it lacked of salted fish.
This was the restaurant’s recommendation: deep-fried & steamed Kai Lan with salted fish. It sounded interesting to see what “deep-fried” kai lan was but taste-wise, it was nothing spectacular.
Last but not least, the other famous dish that F.C.’s customers loved:
Sang Har Yee Mee
Huge portion that came with huge prawns but not as great as that restaurant at the same row. F.C. agreed with me on this but he said, “Although the sauce is not up to expectation, it’s cheaper here and the service is better.”
Yup, that I agree!
Richwell is non-halal.
