The Prince Restaurant 王子軒 - Chinese New Year Yee Sang @ 1 Mont Kiara Mall, KL

2:36:00 PM

To be honest, finding a good Chinese restaurant is one of the most difficult things to do. After all, I have to take into consideration regarding the price, location, service, comfort, number of people and of course, the delicious-ness of the damned restaurant. Most of them have a selected few, but not many can achieve that level of greatness. 

Now, anyone knows I could simply pop by Chynna for some high-end Chinese food, or simply go to any 'dai chao' restaurant to enjoy good seafood. The problem is, they are either too pricey or far too uncomfortable. 

Fortunately, The Prince Restaurant 王子軒 is a place that hits most of its mark. It may not be the best location for me cause it is in bloody Mont Kiara, but at least the food, service, price and comfort is there. Owned and operated under M Group, The Prince Restaurant 王子軒 has been around since July 2015. 

So without further ado, let's see what they have in stores!

Yee Sang!

Yee Sang - RM48/RM88 (medium/large)

First and foremost, as the festive season of Chinese New Year (or angpao collection week) is approaching, we had the signature yee sang to kick start our lunch. Unlike some of the yee sang I've had last year, this was by far one of the most luxurious one. It comes with a generous serving of sea-bird's nest, which I have no idea what that is but it is said to resemble seaweed and packs in a good amount of nutrients.

It also has the standard salmon, rolled in a shape of a rose and a bowl of bak gua (dried meat), along with other essentials such as coloured yam, pomelo, pickled turnip, crushed peanuts, crackers seasoning, and last but not least, homemade plum sauce and olive oil. 

After pouring it all together, you'll get something like this. A divine plate of flavour, texture and prosperity. Because why not! 

Chinese Sausage Fried Rice - RM15.90

Next up, we had a delicious serving of fried rice with 'lap cheong', prawns and mushroom. Unlike many, the fried rice here was light and fluffy, which I thoroughly enjoy. I'm not the kind of person to enjoy fried rice that is made with overnight rice, as I personally find it a little too dry and well, salty (usually). 

This on the other hand, despite being light and fluffy had decent amount of  'wok hei' (or smokiness if you will). Beautifully seasoned, lots of flavour and I love how everything is cubed. 

Mixed Fried Red Brown Rice with Vegetables - RM14.90

For those who are slightly health conscious, or perhaps going on a diet, this might be the dish for you. Done with red brown rice and a heap of vegetables, it can't get any healthier (and tastier) than this. Flavour wise, it wasn't as flavourful as compared to the previous one, but it was sufficient. 

Dim sum - Ranges from RM4.50 - RM6.80

As for their dim sum, everything we had was done quite nicely. I especially love the 'lao sa pao', which is made to be slightly smaller than usual, but still packs the same amount of flavour. Biting through it will allow the salted egg yolk to flow.

The 'har kau' or shrimp dumpling is definitely well worth the try as well. The shrimp was not only fresh and bouncy, it was also wrapped real nicely with the translucent skin. 

As for the traditional dumpling, it was stuffed to the brim. Plenty of meat, all cooked beautifully and tenderly. 

Stir-fried Radish Cake with Beansprout - RM6.80

I personally do not enjoy radish cake as much as they're usually overcooked, burnt or simply mushy. This one the other hand, was much better. The cubes of radish are cut to be a little bigger than usual, which gives it that nice, soft chew instead of burnt bits. The beansprout and other elements in the dish kinda made it taste like char kuey teow, which wasn't a bad thing as I do enjoy that as well.

Stir-fried prawns with Salted Egg Yolk - RM33.90

Up next, we had a glorious plate of prawns with salted egg. It may look simple, but the execution was simply amazing. The crust was crispy and thin enough, that it holds enough flavour of the egg yolk, as well as crack upon placing it in my mouth. Inside, the prawns remained plump and bouncy, which is hard to come by as many restaurants tend to overcook them. In any case, this is one of the best there is in town. 

Double Boiled Soup with Chicken and Herbs in Whole Coconut - RM16.90

Last but not least (although I really think that this should be the first one served), we had a hearty bowl of double boiled soup. Inside, you'll get black chicken and various other Chinese herbs that gives the soup a good load of flavour. Simply put, I would bottoms up the shit out of this. 

In conclusion, The Prince Restaurant 王子軒 is more than just a place for food. It is a hub for family and friends to get together, enjoy a delicious meal at an affordable price, in an environment that is not only cozy, but classy as well. Service was very responsive and the staffs were attentive. Though the refilling of water could be done a little quicker, everything else was just nice. Have I mention that they have free wifi as well?
