A favored restaurant: tasty dishes. That should describe Kai Xuan, a halal Chinese restaurant at the Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
One of the dishes that we inevitably order is the venison cooked with green onions and ginger. The meat, as usual, was tender and the flavors subtle enough to enhance, but not overpower, the taste of the meat.
Chatting with the staff, I picked up a tip about its preparation. Coating the meat with a little cornflour gives it an attractive sheen and texture. Both thin and thick soy sauces are used, plus a pinch of sugar. It’s interesting to learn this, though I don’t think I’ll venture to cook venison any time soon.
Another dish we tried was the prawn noodles. It was tasty, and the secret was in the carefully-prepared stock.
As usual, the service was quite impeccable, and the restaurant continues to remained a favored choice.
