Sweet and sour pork ribs
The pork ribs are braised till very tender, and fully absorb every single essence of the gravy. The sweet-sourness of this dish indeed opens up the flavour. i bet this will be one of the favourite for children too.
It is best to consume with a bowl of rice. 
RM25 per rib

The combination of this dish is also quite surprising me. I never thought before to put the sea treasures with braised duck, did you? salute to the chef who always comes out with new idea on the foods. The duck is well braised, can you imagine how tender it is, it melted in my mouth!

RM90 for half duck, RM180 for whole portion

 Claypot rice with waxed meat (Lap Mei)
Lap Mei was one of the traditional foods for Chinese in the past, our ancestor used to store up and preserve it by air-dried it. According to the chef, those "Lap mei" are imported, and it was naturally air-dried, just as what our ancestor did it, but not factory-manufactured.
