1 Way Modern Chinoise

13 Way Modern Chinoise

Chik Kut Teh

This contemporary Chinese restaurant’s creativity drew us back for signature recipes like Way’s interpretation of ‘chik kut teh’ (RM26 before taxes), herb-laced chicken that’s pan-fried & partnered with bean curd strips, meant to be evocative of bak kut teh.

2 Way Modern Chinoise

Red Duck

Love Way’s “Red Duck,” expensive at RM60 for half a duck, but irreproachably crisp-skinned & succulent-fleshed.

3 Way Modern Chinoise

Crispy Lion Fish

Presentation-wise, this “Crispy Lion Fish” is certainly an eye-grabber.

4 Way Modern Chinoise

Basically battered grouper, very meaty & expertly executed.

5 Way Modern Chinoise

Stir-fried Basmati Rice

Ultimately, it’s tough to find fault with how the food here is prepared: all things considered, Way’s basmati rice stir-fried with bits of scallops, abalone & crab roe is probably worth the steep-looking RM42 price tag.

6 Way Modern Chinoise

Side Dish

For fiber: Sauteed dragon leaves with garlic (RM26).

7 Way Modern Chinoise


Desserts are fun to check out too: Musang King durian pancakes with cream (RM14).

8 Way Modern Chinoise

Grapefruit & sago topped with mango mousse (RM16), a chilled refreshment to combat the heat outside.

9 Way Modern Chinoise


Opt for tea …

10 Way Modern Chinoise

… or choose cocktails: The Scarlet Phoenix (RM45), with tanqueray gin, rose-infused vodka, grenadine, elderflower syrup, egg white & rose flower …

11 Way Modern Chinoise

… & The First Emperor, with cilantro, jalapeno, mint, reposado tequila, cointreau & lime juice.
