YouMiQi Cuisine_1

Scarcely 400 meters from Mid Valley, this recent entry to Old Klang Road offers interesting Chinese Shunde-style specialties that make it worth a visit or two.

Steamboat

Start with a steamboat-like stew, brimming with whatever seafood you’d select from the menu.YouMiQi Cuisine2

Our picks: Braised mud crabs, tiger prawns and mactra clams, complemented with roast pork belly and bean curd strips for extra bite and flavor. YouMiQi Cuisine3

The crab tastes as fresh and meaty-juicy as we could have hoped for. A real pleasure. YouMiQi Cuisine4

Ideal for a cold night. We’d have liked to cast some fish into this mix, but those one-kilogram catfish and groupers would make the expense sting too much. With 800 grams of crab, 300 of prawns and 500 of clams, the cost for this stew surpassed RM150.YouMiQi Cuisine5

Claypot Rice

Clay pot rice, topped with eel; another piping-hot, appetite-arousing recipe.YouMiQi Cuisine6

The slickly firm, well-separated feel of the grains is terrific, but more generous portions of eel might make this more flavorsome. Still, for RM35++, it’s not a ripoff. YouMiQi Cuisine7

Offal

Offal lovers can make merry at YouMiQi, thanks to treats like pork heart steamed with plums …YouMiQi Cuisine8

… pork tongue irresistibly fried with broccoli (RM25++) … YouMiQi Cuisine9

… and funky-looking chicken giblets (RM25++) that supply a springy crunch. Tastes rarely come more acquired than this. YouMiQi Cuisine10

No Corkage Charge

Surprise! YouMiQi imposes no corkage charge, so bring every bottle you can carry. YouMiQi Cuisine11

This restaurant can get packed during peak dinner hours; head here before 7pm or after 9am to stave off the risk of being turned away. Service is efficient but polite at best.YouMiQi Cuisine12

YouMiQi is on Jalan Klang Lama; it’ll be on your left as you drive toward Mid Valley, just before the Valenza budget hotel, where customers can park. YouMiQi Cuisine13 YouMiQi Cuisine14
