Kam Lun Tai Restaurant @ Sri Petaling [6th Feb 2010]

Yet another year passed by, it was the time for reunion again. This time round, it involved my colleagues from my previous firm. Since we do not really see other really that often, a call for reunion dinner would be good for some catching up session. We wanted a private room for our reunion but unfortunately, most of the places were already been booked.. After inquiring around, we finally able to get a private room at Kam Lun Tai Restaurant at Sri Petaling.

I was among the first one to reach the restaurant at 7.20pm together with a few of them. Most were still on the way or either have yet to leave the house. Upon reaching, we were brought to the second floor where our private room was located.
Large area span for functions

By 8.30pm, most of the attendee had arrived, minus Tan Sri CK, Nai Shan and Su Ann. Tan Sri CK and Nai Shan arrived 15 minutes later while Su Ann arrived way later, at about 9.15pm because she went for hair dressing.
Our special Menu

We took the RM 698nett Chinese banquet set for the dinner which include 9 dishes, 2 bottles of soft drinks, Chinese Tea and a complimentary Red Wine.
Peanut as Appetizer

Obviously, we added a set of Yee Sang for each table. The Yee Sang was priced at RM 55++ for a set.
Salmon Yee Sang
The Salmon slices were thick, in fact one of the thickest I'd experienced throughout my Yee Sang experience during the CNY.

It was very loud and noisy during the tossing session, with voices coming from everyone particularly Jason, yelling, shouting, chanting the auspicious statements in hope for a better Tiger year ahead.

Complimentary Red Wine
Have no idea of what Red Wine is this. Surprisingly, it tasted decent as it was not too dry and spicy.

First dish of the night, here comes the Four Seasons of Happiness.
Four Seasons of Happiness
Consisted of Taupok stuffed with fish paste, Scrambled Egg with Shark Fins, Cold Seasoned Baby Octopus and a Fuchok Wrapped Mixed Vegetarians with Mushrooms.

The Four dishes
I expected a better combination for this appetizer. The Fuchok Wrapped Mixed Vegetarians and the Scrambled Eggs were easy to prepare dishes. It would be better if they slip in some meat or uncommon dishes. Overall, the combination was just alright, nothing really wow in particular.

Shark Fin's Soup
What a shame that they include the artificial crab stick and slices of mushroom into their supposedly claimed premium dish. I suppose it were intended to provide extra bites, but that spoils the taste of the soup!

Steamed Chicken with Soy Sauce
The chicken meant were soft, tender and juicy. They were nicely seasoned and were great on their own. There were condiments of chili sauce and minced garlic for extra taste.

Sweet and Sour Fried Grouper
The Grouper was nicely fried, maintaining the meat softness and sweetness. It was huge and full with meat. Gravy wise, it was decent.

Butter Prawn with Glass Noodles
It tasted bland and lacks the kick factor. Making things worse, the prawns were not really fresh.

Sauteed Mushroom with Gluten
Decent dish with generous servings of mushrooms and gluten.

Hong Kong Glutinous Rice
The rice were perfectly steamed, resulting to a smooth and sticky texture. It was well seasoned too with generous preserved meats such like "Lap Yuk", "Lap Cheong" and chicken.

And the desserts for the night,
Mini Mochis
I did not get to taste them because they were stuffed with lotus paste. They looked good though=(

Honey Sea Cocunut with Longan
The next time you are looking for cold refreshing dessert with thirst quencher effect, then this is the answer!

Generous portion of Longans

The dinner overall was satisfactory. But the main purpose for most, it was not the eating but for catching up. And here, there were some shots of the attendee for the night.

My ex seniors, managers and juniors

We loved to sing and look at Tan Sri Ck

Cheers for a great year ahead!

The serious us

But obviously,
We are not so serious after all!=)

What a great night it was with great companies and a great catch up! Although the food was not that memorable, but the catching up was indeed memorable. Hopefully, come next year all of us will still keep in touch with each other and another reunion dinner for Tiger year would very much be welcome. Cheers people and see you guys around! =)

Atmosphere: 6/10
Food: 5.5/10 (non-halal)
Price: 5/10

Verdict: The portion were rather big. However, there were more misses than hits. Other than the Glutinous Rice, the whole dinner was rather forgettable.
