16 Eat Out : Ji De Lai San Ding (JDLSD Seafood Restaurant)

On the second day of Chinese New Year, we had an amazing dinner at a seafood restaurant nearby, alfresco with fingers crossed that gloomy skies and windy conditions were not a sign of rain. It wasn't, bless us.

What excited me about this meal was the pig stomach dish, a specialty of Ji De Lai San Ding (JDLSD Seafood Restaurant). Yummy? It was good or should I say an acquired taste? I like it because it was oh-so-interesting. The stomach or hog maw was stuffed with a whole black chicken filled with ingredients like dried mushrooms, dried scallops and lotus seed. It is a nutritious soup dish.

A short clip of it being cut up:




The rest of the dishes are common but no less delicious. I enjoyed the sweet, sticky pork ribs the most (no picture because it was served late) ; addictive, finger-licking stuff.

The restaurant and its surroundings - a laid-back, old style ambiance.

The next morning, we had breakfast at Maxim, an extremely popular dim sum restaurant. It was crowded but fast moving so we got our table within minutes. The eatery runs on a self-service concept where you go to the counter, select the food you want and bring it back to the table yourself.

  6. I am still wondering how to stuff the black chicken into the hog maw? Looks like Ipoh dim sum restaurants are also catching up with the self service concept. We went to two dim sum restaurants and ordering and serving food was self service.

    1. I'm guessing that the hog maw is pretty elastic before cooking ...just guessing.
