回门宴, Back home feast is defined as a feast for  married couple to visit maternal house after 3 days of wedding. My sister and brother-in-law visited us on her third day of marriage.  As we have many relatives, we decided to  eat at Ban Heong Seng Restaurant. Ban Heong Seng Restaurant has been famous for its’ beggar chicken for decades. The most importantly it is a home based restaurant. It has this family oriented environment. Thus, we make the reservation one week ahead.


Beggar Chicken 叫化鸡 RM38.00

This chicken is stuffed with lots of herbs. Thus, the chicken meat is well marinated and cook. The meat is so tender soft. Each bite feel like meat floss. Interestingly,our family members are fighting for the gravy not the chicken meat. The gravy goes perfectly with the rice.


Arcar. A well marinated vegetable as appetiser.


Pu Fo Shou 補佛手 RM35.00

Pu Fo Shou 補佛手 RM35.00

The beggar pork hand is well cooked too. Mr. Ang, a person who dislike Chinese style cooking pork hand, also can’t resist the dish. This dish does not have pork smell and greasiness. Pork skin is famous for the collagen. I can’t help eating the pork skin for its tanginess.


Country Fish 家乡鱼RM32.00

Country Fish 家乡鱼RM32.00

This dish is very suitable for people who hate fish bone. The chef scraps the fresh off the skin. The fish fresh is mixed with vegetable and corn flour to make into fish paste. The paste is then carefully placed back into the fish skin to maintain the fish shape.  The end result is as the photo above. Diners do not need to worry for the fish bone as it is actually fish cake.


Chang Sheng Pu Lao Soup 长生不老汤 RM28.00


The winter melon is filled with chicken meat, white fungus, wolfberry and red dates. The melon is steamed for hours for the soup essence.


Pe Pa Tau Fu 枇杷豆腐 RM14.00


Oil Vegetable 油菜 RM14.00

Total expenses for 2 tables (20 pax): RM370.00
