Hei Yeong Seng Chinese Restaurant...

Hei Yeong Seng Chinese Restaurant is about three to four months old. This restaurant is so spacious, I exclaimed as we walked inside.There were about 20 tables occupied and it was a weekday. The restaurant is brightly lit and very clean. The staff was friendly and there were many of them. That meant efficient service.We decided to settle for the common dishes for comparison.
We had the stir-fried broccoli with dried fish flakes. A very tasty dish with the broccoli cooked but still crunchy.The dried scallop tofu was a good choice recommended by the waiter. The Japanese tofu was tasty. The tofu made with a lot of egg was soft but not watery. We ate it to the last bit, as even the gravy was tasty. We did not waste even a drop of the gravy, as there was a lot of shredded scallop in the gravy. Yummy!The steamed cod was normal as compared with the other restaurants we have visited. The fish was juicy and fresh.This is one tasty dish we had, the 3-cup clay pot chicken. What pleased the three of us was no breast meat used in this dish. Similar dish served at other restaurants used the breast part of the chicken. That made the meat dry. Every single piece of the chicken meat came from the thigh of the chicken. We enjoyed every bite of the chicken. The chef must be very experienced as the dishes (all that we ate) were simply delicious. If you are wondering about the price of the dishes, I would say it is reasonable. The whole dinner cost us less than RM100. If you are looking for a new place for your meals...here is one!:o) **Please read the comments if you are ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS. There is a feedback from a reader.

Persons allergic to peanuts, beware: My son almost died eating there. We had to rush him to hospital. He took the roast duck, and I think they fried the duck after they roast it in peanut oil and my son is allergic to peanuts. He developed breathing problems immediately after. Later when I called the restaurant, the receptionist mentioned that they do not use peanut oil but I think they used oil that has been previously fried with peanuts to increase the aroma of the roast duck.

I am so sorry about your son. I hope he is doing better now. Did you tell the waiter about your son’s allergy to peanuts? I always inform the waiter when placing my food order..No lard used in the food preparation. My family do not take lard. Anyway, thank you for this piece of information. I am sure my readers would appreciate this extra information.

Actually we have eaten in many restaurants and ordered roast ducks in most of them. No problems at all. I think in this restaurant, they probably use oil to fry peanuts and re-cycled the same oil to fry the duck to create a crispy texture. This incident made us more wary of the types of oil used in the restaurant.

You could be right with the re-cycled oil. I think not many people know about peanut allergy. But as restaurateurs, they should be aware that there are people who are allergic to peanuts. I hope this restaurant change their way of preparing the roast duck (just in case.) Yes, it is good to be wary of how the food we eat are prepared. Thank you for this piece of info. All the best and Take care.:o)
