The reason being, we were searching the shop lots expecting it to be another restaurant in a shop house, oh, but we were so wrong.
As we were about to leave Taman Utama, a gigantic white (and new) building loomed before us. There’s no way that this is what we are looking for, I thought to myself, but after taking a closer look, THIS IS IT!
WOW! We got a pleasant surprise! Ample parking spaces are available next to the huge restaurant building. This small restaurant has transformed into a enormous double storey wedding banquet hall! I actually wondered if this is the largest banquet hall in the whole of Johor - I won't be surprised, if it is.
Catering to its long time, loyal clientele, a small section of the banquet hall is reserved to serve dishes to walk-in customers. When we were at Shi Wei Fu, many of the tables were occupied by three generation families.
Our stomachs growling and our mouths watering after flipping though the menu, we quickly ordered a few of Shi Wei Fu's best known dishes.
RM8 gets us a large plate of perfectly fried rice generously topped with small fried anchovies. The fried rice was not oily, and was tasty and fragrant.
Mongolian Pork Ribs, costing RM8 per piece, we get our hunger satisfied with these huge ribs!
Marinated well and deep fried to perfection, this Mongolian Pork Rib is a must try for rib lovers! Slight saltiness and crispy exterior meets moist interior - the rib still retaining its natural flavour and character!
Shi Wei Fu is definitely a must try. I heard their crispy duck is very good – will definitely come back for this J
