Chi Fan at Taman Melawati: SnapshotSean Yoong
September 10, 2017
Honest, time-honoured flavours: Chi Fan is run with lots of heart by Shurqi, a former lawyer whose caseload now consists of cooking, baking and serving customers at her lovely new venue. Her speciality is mee calong, a heritage recipe from her Pahang coastal hometown of Beserah. The noodles come with kitchen-made fish balls prepared with ikan selayang (very tender and naturally tasty) in a light, delicately sweet fish broth that’s aromatic with cinnamon and cloves – ideal for folks who love diving deeper into the diversity of Malaysian recipes. True to the restaurant’s name, rice and assorted side dishes are also available for lunch. End with one of Shurqi’s oven-fresh cakes, perhaps a Victoria sandwich.
