Hakka Rang Restaurant, Kota Damansara

First noticed this restaurant when we drove pass the main road, and saw the eye catching lime green signboard. Though I have limited chinese words vocab, I could understand that 3 words on the sign board..and I know it's a place for hakka dishes.
Just before I came to try the food, Hochiak did an episode on it....recommending some must try dishes..
And of course I tried the yam abacus seeds(RM10.80)..
Those fellas in Hochiak were raving about the Q-ness, Q-ness and more QQ (springy). Never never place your hopes up so high. It was an ok dish, it was not that Q. It was a decent suen pun ji, but I didnt like the scattering of peanuts on it. Sort of distorts the flavour.
The deep fried pork with ear wood fungus(RM12)..
A standard hakka dish. Hakka Rang did a pretty good version of it. The sauce was pretty thick as the fried dough from the pork had mixed into the sauce. Small portion though.
Some fried bitter gourd with salted egg(RM13)..
Medicore version. But hey, we need our veggies..

Their beancurd(RM12)..
Rather than the usual deep fried tau foo, this version was quite light. Gary found it too salty; I was ok with it. Sauce was sort of like a diluted version of sharks fin soup.
Overall was an ok meal, just not something I'll madly rave about.
Hakka Rang is located at 13-1, Jalan PJU 5/18, Dataran Sunway, 47810 Kota Damansara, PJ.

My Hakka senses are tingling very loudly again! I think I need to revisit my roots very soon. Doesn't matter if it's just OK, it'll have to do! Thanks for the tip!

Haha, why are there peanuts(hard) in the QQ dish? Seems doesn't match, but good to try.
