Bitter Gourd Speciality @ Restoran Fu Kua, Taman Megah

If you're mad about bitter gourd, this is a good restaurant to go to. EV recommended this restaurant as she had gone to it with her parents previously when they visited from Kuching.

We ordered four dishes for the three of us.

I couldn't remember if it was the Marmite Pork Ribs or the Sweet & Sour Pork Chop was good. So, we ordered the Sweet & Sour Pork Chops ("Pai Kuat Wong"). It was served differently as the pork chop was cut into small pieces. The pieces of pork was soft and easy to chew - good for older folks.

My parents love bitter gourd. I, on the other hand, could never tolerate it being cooked as the bitterness just seeped into everything that it is cooked with. So, they had to order a separate vegetable dish - stir fried kai lan.

Anyway, I felt a bit adventurous and tried the rest of the dishes my parents ordered.

The stir fried bitter gourd with salted egg tasted good but according to my mom, it was not as good as the one cooked at this other restaurant in Subang Jaya (which is no longer open).

The bitter gourd soup is highly recommended and seems to be the "specialty" dish of the restaurant. The soup was absolutely bitter but funnily though, the bitter gourd pieces did not have any bitterness at all. I wondered if my tongue had lost all its ability to taste other flavours. LOL!!

The soup is a boiled soup with minced pork, pork stomach and pigs blood pieces. Sounds disgusting but the soup tastes great!

The entire meal was around RM53 which included drinks and rice. Can be slightly expensive but if you're crazy about bitter gourd, this is the place to go!

  7. Hi all!

    Tekkaus - Yes, there is! When you open up the menu, you'll see nothing but bitter gourd menu items.... and a few other dishes too. LOL!

    Che-Cheh - I'm no bitter gourd fan but I enjoyed the food there.

    Mei Teng - Try this shop!!

    foongpc - Haha.. The bitter gourd pan mee probably had a small percentage of the taste. Funny thing is, if bitter gourd is in the soup, the bitterness is taken out of the vegetable, making the vegetable tasty.

    keeyit - Yea, the food is good but I too find the place a bit more pricey than the usual shop.

    Chris - Don't be naughty... But it has a funny name. ;-)
