Mohd Chan Abdullah Chinese Muslim Restaurant

I really love to eat butter prawn and lemon chicken and am always on the hunt to find an eatery offering my favourite menu at a reasonable price. When my friend told me that there's a new restaurant (Mohd Chan Abdullah Restaurant) had opened in Bangi which offers those menus, I bugged my husband to take me there for lunch or dinner. We went there earlier this week during lunch hour and the place is actually packed with customers. Good sign perhaps? There's this western restaurant next to place we are going to but the place is quite empty since throngs of hungry patrons seems to be more attracted to eat at Mohd Chan's. Maybe I'll try to eat there some other time.

The restaurant is located in a shop lot (Jalan Medan Pusat 2C, Bandar Baru Bangi) with seatings available on the Ground Floor and 1st Floor. Since the GF was already fully seated, we opted to dine on the 1st Floor. The restaurant offers various of dishes, noodles sets, rice sets, dim sum, drinks and even dessert.

For our first time dining experience at Mohd Chan's, we opted for the obvious choice of dishes (of course!) that is butter prawn, lemon chicken and fish ball soup accompanied by white rice.

For drinks we had Kedondong Asam Boi and Chrysanthemum Tea.

The drinks arrived first and we had to wait for a while for the dishes to be cooked. I actually liked the taste of the Kedondong Asam Boi because of the tanginess and sweetness that blends quite well with the sourness of the Asam Boi. The tea was also nice but it was a tad too sweet for my husband. After waiting for a while, our lunch arrived.

The Fish Ball Soup was nice. The taste of the soup is not too salty and the fish ball doesn't have that fishy smell or taste.

The butter prawn was also nice with lots of eggs strings but I'd expected it to be a little bit sweeter. I like the fact that the chef took the effort to clean the prawns prior cooking. I think my sisters would have enjoyed this dish just the way it is since I have a sweet tooth and they don't. Hehe.. Their loss. Or is it my loss?

The lemon chicken was quite a let down for me since the chicken wasn't cut into small pieces and there wasn't much lemon sauce. I would have liked it better if there was much more lemon sauce in the dish to fully complement the crispy chicken.

All in all, it was quite a nice dining experience and maybe I'll bring my family to have dinner here someday. Maybe next time I'll try the dimsum. It sure looked tempting and delicious to me.. :)
