My JB friend John brought us to Restoran Wah Yew 华友 in Taman Pelangi for traditional Teochew food. Locals refer to the restaurant as Ah Chye 阿, the name of the owner Chef.

I've been to Wah Yew a couple of times before - it is a popular, family friendly, cosy place for get togethers and for entertaining friends with traditional Teochew fare.

Johor Bahru is also known as "Little Swatow 小汕頭" as the majority of the Chinese community in JB are Teochews.

I got a sneak peek in the kitchen, watching owner Chef Ah Chye 財 in action frying Hor Fun. I was surprised at the amount of work (vigorous tossing and stir frying) needed to cook a seemingly simple Hor Fun.

財's Hor Fun with nice wok hei 鍋氣 (smokey taste from the slightly caramelised rice noodles). We have to eat this while it is still piping hot to enjoy the wok hei at it's best.

Wah Yew's kampung chicken has nice natural chicken flavour but the flesh though moist was slightly chewy.

These popular Rabbit Fish (白肚魚) cooked traditional Teochew style - steamed and served cold is an acquired taste. The meat though moist was slightly fibrous and chewy, while the taste was a blend of sweet and mildly bitter. I like this :-D

Every time we are at Wah Yew, we would have their signature steamed pomfret 潮州蒸鯧魚.

Wah Yew's Teochew style steamed Pomfret always pleases. Super fresh, naturally sweet, tender, juicy flesh in simple soupy sauce and garnished with spring onion, shredded ginger, salted vegetables, parsley and other greens.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
