Denise had hinted for me to bring the family sniffer along, and I had to butter him up a few days before before he agreed. He said he was nervous. But you know, like meeting Shan and Louis and Ivy of Precious Pea, it didn't feel awkward at all for me and I really enjoyed the dinner with them all. Ekeng's parents, brother and his (Ekeng's) friend Oliver joined us too as the family seemed to have some control in the restaurant.
Ekeng is very friendly and likeable and the fact that he was so loving to his parents and vice versa so impressed me that I must nominate him for the title of Most Eligible Blogger that is if he's still eligible. And on top of that, he was so generous too. Look what he feed us:
Fish maw soup
Steamed 7-star grouper. Ekeng's asking whose skin is smoother. Actually I asked him to show how big the fish is.
Yummy saucy tiger prawns. These were huge and after tucking in one, I was full especially since I had had a buffet lunch just 5 hours before that. What a waste, because more food was to come and I couldn't do justice to them.
Kam heong crabs, one of the best ways to cook crabs. These were good.
Prawn paste boneless chicken, Wey's fav--he doesn't like seafood.
Stewed venison brisket and veg. I hardly tasted this, stuffed to the hairline was I.
Thai-style mango grouper. The sweet and sour sauce was very good but I didn't eat the fish .
These were delicious coffee hazelnut macarons from Big Boys Oven Sunny and Sid and they were very good, full of coffee flavor, crisp outside chewy inside. Denise and Wey ate more than one each I think. I however found it a bit too sweet. Now isn't Ekeng the nicest person ever, to bring back these special treats for us? He actually ordered some jelly cakes too but I shall not reveal what happened because I don't want to get Ekeng into trouble with BBO.
We had a great time sharing our common interest, blogging and photography, and Ekeng also shared about the KL bloggers when they meet (very nice, friendly people who let their food get cold because they are so serious about their photos). Thanks Ekeng for the scrumptious meal and thanks also for your wonderful company Denise, Oliver, Ekeng and family!
