Shanghai and Sze Chuan Cuisines @ Esquire Kitchen 大人餐厅

Esquire Kitchen is one of most visited dining places during my childhood  Being part of a traditional family, my parents are preferring Esquire Kitchen for its Shanghai and Sze Chuan cuisines compared to the latest trends of Japanese/ Korea cuisines. This year, we had visited Sungei Wang Plaza and shopped for new clothes during Chinese New Year. Esquire Kitchen had been our choice of having dinner.

Crowded Esquire Kitchen

We ordered Prosperity New Year set (RM68++) which allowed us to choose 4 main dishes and dessert. We had ordered the well known cuisines such as Wo Tip and Xiao Long Bao.

Fried Shanghainese Dumplings with crispy skins wrapping the flavorful meat.
Pan fried Shanghainese Dumplings had one side crispy while the topside is left slightly chewy.

Fried Shanghainese Dumplings  (Shanghai Wo Tip) is one of the specialties of Esquire Kitchen.
It tastes best by eating with ginger slices.

Double Mushroom with Seasoned Beancurd skins 竹报平安
Braised beancurd skins with mushrooms is an usual dish we had at home, however Esquire Kitchen has cooked them with many types of vegetables  

Stir-fry lotus roots with chinese sausages 莲花玉女
Each bite of this dish is fulled of crunchiness. The dish is made of lotus roots, Chinese sausages and cashew nuts, carrot slices and green beans.

Braised pork ribs with chestnuts and shittake mushrooms 儿孙满堂
The soy-braised pork spare ribs are not an easy dish to be cooked according to my mom as it takes a long time for preparing the ingredients, ensuring the shittake mushroom are marinated well before cooking and lastly stewing the marinated pork ribs with low heat till the meats are tendered.
I liked this dish particularly because of chestnuts and shittake mushroom being my favorite food.

Deep Fried Garoupa with citrus juice 年年有余
It looked like Thailand style fish to us due to the slices of carrots and cucumbers on top of the garoupa. The sweetness and sourness were well-balanced along with the crunchy skin and flaky flesh of the fish.

The delicate & translucent-skinned Xiao Long Bao ( steamed dumplings) which were filled with minced meats (prawns and pork) and essential juices.
I hoped I could have another basket of xiao long bao to enliven my taste buds :)

Family dinner

Dessert rice balls in red beans paste 甜甜蜜蜜
As the name of the dessert, a bowl of glutinous rice balls in red bean paste had perfectly ended our scrumptious dinner.

Family dinner 

It's still one of the best dining places for family dinner. Good value for its authentic cuisines and the ambiance of restaurant is pleasant for family gathering.
