Wifey’s colleague recommended this place called Restaurant 9888 in Cheras and she suggested we try it out since we were going back to mom’s. 9888??? I thought it has something to do with the radio station when i first heard of the name. When i realize it’s not, i gathered the name must be a lucky number to the restaurant owner! We were briefed of the location, otherwise we’d never have ventured into this secluded end! It’s not that difficult to find though. When you see DAP’s (ROCKET) signage after passing by Pudu Ulu, turn left and go in straight and it’s at the row of hidden shophouses.
We arrived before 6pm and were lucky to find ourselves a parking space. Be early and make reservation to avoid waiting, both parking and a table!
Stir-fry Romaine lettuce (清炒油麦) @ RM 8.00 ~ Simple dish that can’t go wrong.
Soy Steamed Silver Cat Fish (醬油蒸白蘇公) @ RM 35.00 ~ Very fresh catfish and steamed to perfection!
Totaled @ RM 80.85 inclusive of 5 bowls of plain rice, a pot of Jasmine Chinese tea for 3 and a 5% service charge. I would say that the price is reasonable and most of all the cooking is good. Will come back for other more popular dishes during the next visit.
