Room Eighteen, Tropicana City, PJ

Been neglecting my blog- not intentionally :p has been under the weather and then was rather busy..
But I have to update my blog, no? My back logs are stacking up super fast..hehe

We were darn hungry after watching MJ's movie, CC was sick and requested for some warm, bland food. I could only think of Room 18, we promptly made our way the restaurant. Since it's under Tai Thong Group, I would think that the food should be of acceptable standards...
Room Eighteen reminds me of Canton-i, it serves mainly noodles/ porridge with Hong Kong style roast, dim sums and some ala carte dishes.
CC decision was fast- he had fish congee (RM11.80)
He said it was excellent as the congee warmed his belly and soothe his sniffles. I did try abit, the congee was rather bland. Texture was smooth though.

The rest of us had noodles..
Jem had 3 combination noodles (RM15.80) while I had the Crispy Roast Pork Belly noodles (RM11.80)The noodles were springy, the QQ texture was just right. We all agreed that the roast pork was delicious, the skin was crackling while the meat was solid and nicely layer with bits of fat. Jem said the roast duck and char siew was very average though.
Gary had the suckling pig noodles(RM17.80)
Quite pricey for 4 slices of suckling pig. No, the extra wanton and roasted pork were from his wifey- not in the original combo :p. Though the amount of suckling pig was measly, it was still good. The skin was thin but crunchy. The meat was tender and well marinated, went well with the noodles.
Candy's wantan noodles with prawn wanton (RM11.80)
She said the noodles were too soft- lacking in Q-ness. The prawn wantons were pretty good though- plump prawns with springy texture.
We also ordered some side dishes to share..
The siew mai (RM7.80) was rather popular.
The guys said it was delicious. It was ok for me.
The steamed glutinous rice (RM6.80)
Quite a lot of ingredients in the rice. Rather tasty, the rice was moist, but some parts were rather salty. Uneven distribution of marination?
I rather enjoyed the char leong (RM6.80)
This shot was taken before I poured in the sauce. The crullers were crunchy and warmish, but the chee cheong fun wrap was rather cold. Would have been perfect if it was served warmer.
The Green Onion Pie (RM3.80)
Bad. Dont like. Dont order.
Room Eighteen is located at G-35, Tropicana City Mall, PJ.

Suckling pig noodle! I've often lamented about how they should have more manageable serves of suckling pig without the table needing to order the entire pig! This is good! Haha, like yr comment of the green onion pie - nothing like tellin' it like it is! :-)

i think they have several outlets now, in other major shopping complexes.
there's one in Times Square. but the menu resembles Canton-i so much, I did not go for a try.

minchow: yes, if you just want a few pieces of it, then the noodle's a right choice. hehe i like choong yau peng and their version sucks.

j2kfm: really? i hardly go to shopping complexes, so I didnt noticed. yup, it's similar to canton-i

thenomadGourmand: most of the food was average. think those that got our vote was the roast pork, suckling pig and char leong (if served warm)

Hahaha, love your last sentence :p

Funny though, I always find the roast pork in such restaurants better than the char siew... wonder why.
