One of my food adventures brought me all the way to Semenyih, Kajang recently. This time it was to savour some delectable chinese cuisine at Gao Feng Chinese Restaurant. Opened and run by a Singaporean, you can be sure the dishes have a lot of local flavours from our neighboring country. Tucked away in the town of Semenyih, check out what we had that afternoon, ranging from seafood, to chilli crab and more!

The restaurant itself had a wide space for diners to dine in comfortably, complete with aircond and all. There's ample parking outside too. We were served some fresh seafood and steamboat, including some of Singapore's famous local dishes.

If you're a fan of fish head, then this is a must-try dish for you. Originating from China, the Gao Feng Grouper Fish Head dish is definately one to savour. Boiled for hours with pork bone, fish head and chicken, the soup itself has a distinctive fish aroma, not so suitable for my tastebuds, but once you drink it, it does taste very good. Clear soup, yet thick, starchy and delicious.
Customers who purchase both the Grouper Fish Head Pot and Steamboat Set can take part in a lucky wheel available inside the restaurant to win lucky prizes, which includes RM1 Chicken / Fish and percentage discount that can be redeemed immediately.
|Grouper Fish Head (RM6 per 100g)|
Still on the subject of Grouper fishes, you can opt for their Sichuan Style Grouper Fish Head. We had a huge one that afternoon, this well known dish in Sekinchan is prepared with dry chili paste and chopped dried chilli, giving you that spicy kick in the mouth the moment you bite in. Not bad at all.
|Chili Crab (Seaonal pricing)|
The moment the Chili Crab was brought out, I was in love with how it looks. Stir fried with creamy tomato chili based sauce, this crab dish did satisfy any cravings we had. Sweet and spicy, another must-try. I was told the way this crab is prepared is popular amongst Singaporeans.
|Curry Pork Ribs (Small, RM16 ; Medium, RM22 ; Large, RM28)|
Ah, my favourite dish that afternoon, one which I could not get enough of, the Curry Pork Ribs by Gao Feng. The curry is unlike any others I've tasted, as it has a very heavy taste of coconut and fresh milk inside. Extra fragrant, extra creamy, and it's very spicy too, perfect for the Malaysian Chinese in me.
|Prawn Paste Chicken Wings (RM12 ; RM18 ; RM24)|
For an added bite, do try out their unique Prawn Paste Chicken Wings. Yes you heard that right, prawn paste, not belacan but the more premium "he kor" as I call it in Hokkien. It tasted surprisingly good, flavourful and crunchy. Do drop by Gao Feng Chinese Restaurant @ Semenyih, Selangor if you're in the vicinity and want some good Chinese cuisine. No GST and service charges will be added to your total bill, so what are you waiting for!
