Restoran My Preference Cantonese Cuisine, Alam Damai, Cheras

In early 2010, several new restaurants opened for business at the Damai 23 shophouses in Alam Damai, Cheras. We were delighted as it meant we would have more choices when it came to dining out. Sadly, the first restaurant we tried was a miss. We did not despair.

Next on our radar was My Preference Cantonese Cuisine Restaurant. No prizes for guessing what type of cuisine they serve here.

Being a Chinese restaurant, the decor is Oriental; marble tables and Chinese artwork are common features here. We like it here as the restaurant is clean, and air-conditioned, allowing us to dine in comfort just by paying a little more than a dai chow restaurant. Both English and Chinese menus are available.

Complimentary soup of the day is served at the start of the meal. Baby C loves the soup here. On this visit, we were served a clear radish soup.

My favourite dish here is the Stewed Thick Spare Ribs in Kong Ting Style served with crispy soft bun (RM25/set).

The pork has a slight layer of fat on top, and has been slow braised in a sweet sauce, thus producing tender, melt-in-your-mouth pork.

We have tried several types of tofu dishes here, but our favorite is the Deep Fried Homemade Beancurd Thai Style (RM10 for small portion). Even when there is 3 of us dining here, the small portion is more than sufficient for us. The beancurd is soft in the middle with a crisp exterior and is topped with shredded young mango, onion slices, peanuts and a tangy lime sauce. Delicious!

And some crunchy Stir Fried Choy Tam (RM11 for small portion) to balance our meal.

Other specialties here are Salt Baked Chicken, Ginger Wine Chicken, shark's fin soup, Buddha Jump Over the Wall, just to name a few.

I like the food here, everything is cooked well and the service is excellent. Reservations are recommended during weekends as it can get very busy in the restaurant.

Opening times: 12.00pm - 2.30pm (Lunch); 5.30pm-10.30pm (Dinner)

Price: RM55 for 3 person. Reasonable.

Location: Restoran My Preference Cantonese Cuisine, 22A Jalan Alam Damai 1, Damai 23, Alam Damai, 56000 Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
