Last night, our classes finished up late. We left the gym at 9pm. Not really sure where to go for dinner and we ended-up at New Diamond Restaurant. Although it was quite late, the shop was still crowded. Few tables were left unclear even after the previous patrons left. We were there for about 10 minutes just to wait for the waitress to clean up the table and take our orders but we were left being unnoticed.Finally Elaine took the courage and went to the counter, urged the waitress and get things done.
Pai Kuak Wong (Pork Ribs King)
One of our dish was the Pork Ribs King. Taste wise, just average. The pork ribs was fried till crispy and covered with sweet and savoury sauce. It was boneless.
Tofu with Minced Pork
The Tofu with Minced Pork was quite big portion. Nothing to write home about. Tasted like a home-cooked dish.
Stir-Fried Choy Sum
As we saw quite a few tables ordering Fried Noodle, we opted for one too. It was definitely not bad. It had the savoury aroma, just like a good Char Koay Teow which was fried with fierce fire. This dish considered the best dish of the night (for us).
Steamed Tilapia with Bean Paste Sauce
Fish was fresh and well cooked. The sauce wasn't so nice but not bad though. Just not outstanding nor appealing enough.
Dinner, Total Paid: RM55.30
Overall, the food was just average. Not really sure why people are willing to tolerate patiently with their slow service without a single complaint. The only reason I can think of is their long operating hours which last till 2am.
