A Malaysian Chinese Birthday Banquet at Teck Wah Seafood Restaurant Dec 29, 2014
It was my father's birthday. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce some typical Malaysian Chinese dishes that are commonly present during weddings or major life celebration marking one's 50th, 60th or 70th birthday for middle income families. The difference in the types of dishes between that of a wedding and birthday banquet probably lies in the presence of longevity noodles (長壽麵). From the name of the dish, one can easily guess that it is meant for birthday celebration. It is difficult to separate Asian people from auspicious naming of events, greetings, foods, rites and etc.
For appetizer, we had 4 side dishes on a boat platter. The appetizer in clockwise order consisted of handmade fishball, salted eggs and crabsticks wrapped in seaweed spring roll, scallops in pepper paste and baby octopuses within thin slices of conch. Then, the main dishes were crispy whole roasted suckling pig, roasted chicken, braised sea cucumbers and goose feet, handmade tofu with crispy pork floss, stir-fry mixed vegetables and longevity noodles. Depending on the region, usually Southern Chinese prefer stir-fry egg noodles while Chinese from Fujian province prefer wheat flour noodles (麵線) with hard boiled eggs. Due to the vast diversity in Malaysian Chinese cuisine, most restaurants tend to serve stir-fry egg noodles. Lastly, we had sea coconut jelly for dessert.
Besides catering for neighborhood style banquets, they also serve everyday Chinese dishes. Teck Wah has been operating in this area for a number of years and well-known among Chinese communities staying nearby. Jinjang is a small village within the Kepong township notorious for gangsterism. Advance reservation is required for banquet preparation.
Opening hours: 1100 to 2200
Pricing: Comes up to RM500++ for ten adults depending on types of dishes and seasonal pricing for fresh seafood.
