Previously selling in the proprietor's own house along Lebuh Tye Sin, Restaurant ZQY 周记扁肉 has been around for quite a few years. The uniqueness of the dish has garnered an appreciate following, as well as made known to the folks living/ working in the neighborhood. It has since relocated to CY Choy, to operate in a proper, air-conditioned restaurant. The menu has expanded as well- from only Dry and Soup Noodles to a new noodle dish (Zha Jiang Mian) as well as more side dishes to go with the noodles. With better dining atmosphere, it comes with higher price tags; fortunately, the quality remains.
Zha Jiang Mian 炸酱面 (Rm 7.50/ medium)
Dry Noodles 拌面 (Rm 7.50)
Steamed Pork Dumplings 蒸饺 (Rm 8.50)
Soup Dumplings 扁肉汤 (Rm 6)
For the uninitiated, ZQY serves Bian Rou- a type of dumpling originated from the Fujian province in China which uses Pork meat in the making of dumpling skin... the end product should carry a meatier flavor with a crunchy texture. ZQY's rendition was good and tummy-comforting, the dumplings were served in a clear soup... smooth skin with addictively crunchy filling. The steamed Pork Dumplings on the other hand, carried a bolder pork note. The texture was meatier as well, not as addictive as compared to the soup version. As for noodles, both the Zha Jiang and Dry versions were quite identical, except the accompanying sides. Just think of the noodles as another Wan Ton Mee variant... the type of dish that you can enjoy on a regular basis.
