Precious Old China Restaurant & Bar @ Central Market

Label:

Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market, Precious Old China restaurant & bar offers a quaint dining experience amidst Malaysian antiques and vintage Colonial furniture.

This restaurant is run by the same operators of the popular Old China Café in the heart of Chinatown, nearby Central Market.

 

It is apparent that “Precious” refers to the cultural heritage of the Chinese community and a way of life that is slowly but surely disappearing.

Stepping through the 2.6m (8½ ft) high Art Deco chengal hardwood doors, one is drawn to the 4.9m (16ft) long and 107cm (42inch) high chengal bar counter. This counter is matched with three teak cabinets that spans a total of 4.9m in length and rises 2.6m high.

Other decorative features include the folding glass-panels of a private dining room that resemble a jewel box. Sourced from Guangzhou, the panels were salvaged from a grand house.

There are three sections for dining. The first section is opposite the bar counter where old marble-top tables and bentwood chairs beckon. In the third section, which is the main dining hall you have to step through a portal of decorative panels

Pie Tee or also know as “Top Hat” is the signature appetiser of the cafe which is recommended by the chef. Its looked like crispy little hat-shaped cones made of rice flour to be filled with minced chickens, sweet tumip, carrots and green beans. Its served together with the chilli sauce to make it more savory.

This restaurants starter dish is quite different from others. Before starting to eat the appetiser, there are some few step need to be done. Firts of all, We need to filled in the Pie Tee which shaped like little hat cones with "Ju Hu Char" its penang unique delicacy. After that, apply some chilli sauce on top of the Ju Hu Char. Then the third step is adding a few amount of omelette on top of the sauce. And lastly add on top of the omelette some coriander leaves to make the dish looks more attractive ! And its ready to eat. This is something new and everyone should try this appetiser.
