Wang Chao Chinese Cuisine @ Pekaka Square, Penang

There are many type of traditional dishes for the Chinese during our reunion dinner.
Lou Sang, Poon Choi and many more.

Thanks to Willy, I've got the chance to savoured another great traditional dish for Chinese.
Buddha Jumps Over The Wall or Buddha's Temptation, which is known as 佛跳墙 in mandarin is a luxurious dish that consists of expensive ingredients like shark's fin, abalone, scallops, sea cucumber, ginseng and many more. A dish that is very rich in calcium and protein.

Wang Chao is located at Pekaka Square, on the building beside Penang Tesco Extra.
If you know where Talk Talk Wine House is, the you will be able to find Wang Chao

They also served Cocomas Coconut Water on that night, it was quite good and tasted exactly like the fresh pandan coconut water.

Our first dish was Healthy Yee Sang.
Why the word Healthy?
Look at all the ingredients of this Yee Sang, Wang Chao only uses only non colouring, non artificial food. All the ingredients uses are purely natural like pumpkin, cabbages, carrots, cucumbers and many more. Even the crispy crackers also replaced with cornflakes, what a healthy choices for lou sang, and it tasted much more delicious than those colouring yee sang.

My second lou sang of the year, and it was much more delicious with all the healthy and natural ingredients.

7 types of sauces, each type with different flavours.

Now back to the main dish for the night:
Buddha Jumps Over The Wall / Buddha's Temptations / 佛跳墙

Stone Pot was used for this dish. Buddha's Temptations is also one of the luxurious Chinese New Year dishes among the Chinese. It has got most of the expensive and high quality ingredients to boil together to make up a delicious hot pot of Buddha's Temptations. 
The soup was boiled for at least 6 hours with low fire. You can tell when you have your first sip, of richness of the soup will make you fall in love with this dish.
Normally this dish would be selling at around RM1000, together with all the expensive high quality ingredients. But in Wang Chao, due to they have replace Shark's Fin with Figleaf Gourd, so they are only selling it at RM599nett together with the stone pot if you order it for takeaway

As I've mentioned about Shark's Fin is used in this dish above, Wang Chao actually supported WWF and against animal cruelty. Therefore instead of using shark's fin, it was replaced by a type of vegetable called Figleaf Gourd. Figleaf Gourd look exactly like shark's fin after cooking, and the taste was quite good to go along with the other ingredients. 

The next, which is a must for reunion dinner.

The specialty of Wang Chao, 3D Fish Pot!

The presentation of the fresh fish is rather unique, and the chef has to be skilful to be capable of such presentation

Other than the 3D Fish, another good selling point is the big headed prawn, where the prawns are pretty big and with sauce in it. Not to mention that it is very fresh.
Amazingly delicious!

As for some people, it might be quite troublesome to prepare steamboat for your family reunion dinner.
Wang Chao has came to know about that problems, therefore they have came out with a Steamboat Set.
The Steamboat Set is selling at only RM399 per set for 10 pax which I will consider very reasonable with one whole fresh fish and the big headed prawns, total around 30 ingredients with the rest of the ingredients. 

The boss himself also told us about the "secret tips" of having the fresh fish.
First of all, put your fish meat into the ladle

Then, dip it into the boiling soup. Remember, the soup must be boiling.
Dip it in for 60seconds, and then consume it while still hot!
Tasted so fresh and feels like heaven!

It works the same for big headed prawn, use a ladle to cook it so the sauce inside the prawn is wont flow out. You will taste the tenderness and freshness of the prawn.
