Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Bruce Wong, I am one of the partners of the Tom, Dick & Harry's pub chain, Hoofed and also Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock Kopitiam. I am writing you this e-mail to cordially invite you for a first hand view and experience of our latest and most ambitious project yet, a chinese dining restaurant named The Royal Flush.
I honestly thought the guy was being funny, about the Ali Muthu & Ah Hock kopitiam, but guess what, it's REAL. And in keeping with their funny memorable names, the latest in the portfolio of these guys' chain of restaurants, is ROYAL FLUSH.
For this media pre-launch, we were treated to the SPOT ON menu....consisting ...
Dim Sum Combination...a xiu mai, fish ball and xiu long bao, ...okay, nothing very mind blowing here, but it was good quality dim sum, and I believe dim sum will be one of the lunch staples.
Twin Cold Combination...basically an oyster shot kinda thing, and some abalone like clam with two cherry tomatoes on top. I liked the idea of the oyster shot, and that lovely slimy feeling of it slithering down your throat.
Grilled Cod Fish...okay, the names are very straight to the point...spot on, I guess. No complaints with the cod.
Grilled Scallop Bacon, kinda like pigs in the blanket concept. You can't really go wrong with anything that has bacon, if you ask me.
My favourite for the night, grilled pork ribs, with some slight hint of sweetness, but a lovely cut of the rib that was tender and moist, and some slight fat. Which is important. Eating lean pork is like eating vegetables.
Asparagus. Love the fact that on the menu, its says, "ASPARAGUS". Must be lost in translation somewhat, because the chinese menu has at least 5 characters, which I am SURE doesnt say just "ASPARAGUS".
Abalone Fried Rice ...these baby abalones are all the rage these days. There must be an Air Asia equivalent of abalone farming, where everyone can fly, now everyone can eat abalone.
One of the owners, Ernest, giving his welcome speech.
Double boiled bird's nest, but I am not sure if it really was that. It tasted more like honey sea cucumber with snow fungus, so maybe that was substituted. A refreshing dessert for a rather heavy meal.
Note the little labels... all through the night, thanks to Moet Hennessy Diaego, there was free flow Cloudy Bay, one of my all time favourite Savignon Blanc. The other dessert was Crystal Peanut Dumpling. The SPOT ON Menu is RM1200 nett...they also have the CNY Reunion Menu priced at RM1388 net, which sounds quite value for money, considering it has suckling pig, abalone, superior soup and yee sang.
The interior of ROYAL FLUSH
Located in Oasis Square Ara Damansara, the facade of the building is pretty outstanding, you really cannot miss it.
It should be fully operational by now, in time for all the Chinese New Year feasting.
