Father's Day Dinner @ Big Tree Lin Kee, Cheras, KL

Naturally the dad gets to choose the dinner venue for Father's Day, so off we went to Big Tree Lin Kee.

We used to come here pretty often but then they took la la off their menu (it was our fav dish here at that time).A couple of months back, Hubby and I came here for our dinner and saw that la la was back on the menu so we're back here with the kids and my parents for our Father's Day Dinner. Unfortunately for us, there was no la la in stock (NOOOOOOOOO) as they were no deliveries due to the Raya break. Nevertheless, we still had an enjoyable meal here.

I tried my luck and asked if they do salted egg yolk squid here (it's not in the menu) and they did! That made the kids very happy as salted egg yolk squid (RM26 for medium) is their current favorite dish at a Chinese restaurant. Crisp and beautifully golden, the portion was generous too, much to our delight.

We also had the ham yu fah lam (RM17.90), thin slices of pork belly cooked with dark soy sauce, dried chillies and salted fish  in a claypot - absolutely delicious.

We also ordered their signature dishes, the seafood tofu (RM16 for 6 pieces) and chicken wings (RM3.80 each). The wings were well-marinated and crispy...loved it!

If you're a fan of steamed fish head, they serve them with various types of sauces. Other than fish head, they also offer tilapia, baung merah (catfish) and grass carp.

We had two types of vege dishes, the stir fried sweet potato leaves (RM11) and beansprouts with salted fish (RM9.90). The portions were extremely generous.

Opening times: 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM, 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Closed on Wednesdays.

Price: RM111 for 6 pax, including rice and tea.

Location: Restoran Big Tree Lin Kee, 18 &20 Jalan 15A/142, Taman Orkid Desa, 56000 Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. (Street parking available)

Devi's Corner (Banana Leaf Rice) + VCR Bangsar (Coffee & Cakes)

After all these years, Devi's Corner is still one of our favorite places to go to for banana leaf rice. We especially like bringing our overseas friends here as the restaurant is air-conditioned.

Each banana leaf rice is RM8, and comes with three types of vegetables as well a lovely mango chutney as well as deep fried snake gourd, fried salted chilli and papadom. Then, you can choose from four types of curries - mutton, chicken, fish and crab - to go all over your rice. You can have one, two, three or all four! My favorite is definitely the crab curry; thick, spicy and delicious!

Help yourself to the cucumber raita and pickles

To go with your banana leaf rice meal, don't forget to order the mutton varuval (RM12) and fried sotong (RM15). As always, the mutton chunks were tender and flavorful, and happy to note that the fried sotong was excellent this time as well with a light, crispy batter.

Opening times: 11am to 10pm.

Price: Total bill RM67.

Location: Devi's Corner, 14 Jalan Telawi 4, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Tel: 012-267 6714

GPS Coordinates: 3.130178, 101.670946


After lunch, we headed over to VCR Bangsar for coffee and tarts. I enjoyed the lemon tart (RM12) - nice, lovely tart base and zesty filling. The boys enjoyed their flat white (RM12). The coffee is good but the place was exceptionally busy, so the noise levels got pretty high and it was hard to enjoy a conversation here.

Opening times: 8.30am - 11.00pm.

Location: VCR, 31, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

Tel: 03-2201 0011
