Everyone has their favourite Chinese Restaurant these days. Likewise, my uncle swears by Extra Super Tanker. What kind of restaurant name is that you ask me. Well, the owner thought it was catchy. Truthfully, it is catchy, won't can forget a restaurant that has such a name?
Anyway, parking is aplenty at night as most of the shop lots along the same row will be closed.
The soup (RM5 per bowl) was a refreshing start to the dinner. Each bowl came with a nice piece of chicken, some dried scallops and some Chinese herbs. It tasted alright. No complains here.
The Roast Meat (RM35) and Duck (RM85) were served together. The Siew Yuk had a nice crackling skin, followed by a layer of fat and meat. It was one of the better siew yuk I've tasted. The char siew wasn't bad either. The Duck was well seasoned and roasted evenly. The duck skin wasn't as crispy as Loong Foong's, but the dish on the whole was reasonable.
I guess now I realise where the crispy part of the duck ended up. This dish is seriously unhealthy. The interior of the man tou was saturated with oil of all sorts (the duck and the cruller). Taste wise, it was rather good.
The steamed soon hock (seasonal price) was done rather well. It wasn't overcooked and the sauce certainly did justice to the fish.
The prawns (seasonal price) were coated so evenly with that nice, addictive layer of salted egg yolk. This dish hit the right note for me. Screw the cholesterol man, you've got to enjoy yourself once in a while (just make sure the food justify the high cholesterol intake).
The vegetable (RM20) had a nice 'wok hei' (wok flavour which is usually achieved by frying something at a very high heat). With such flavour, I wouldn't mind eating a meal entirely of vegetables.
The bean curd (RM25) were rather ordinary.
We ended the meal with a few Chinese dessert to share. This picture above (RM5) was boiled dried longan, with ginkgo, red dates and sea coconut. It was ordinary. We also had the boiled red bean with sesame seed filled Tang Yuan. The 2nd dessert (no picture sorry) was certainly better than the first.
All in all, Extra Super Tanker served up relatively good food at a reasonable price. I met 2 friends with their family that night (proving the food must be good to attract such a crowd).
Anyway, instead of the usual Halal/Non Halal sign I usually put up and since I'm ever so nice, I'll share this video my friend sent me below. Enjoy, and have a good laugh. I certainly did.
Cheers and good night.
