Entrance of Gao Ren Guan (高人馆)
Judging by the name, I initially thought Gao Ren Guan 高人馆 means a place for tall or skillful people but obviously it’s wrong. I later learnt that there is a district in Guang Dong, China called Gao Zhou (高州) and thus people from this district is referred to as 高人.
Gao Ren Guan is also available at Subang Jaya SS15 and Puchong but I’m visiting the Jaya One branch this time.

Four Most Popular Dishes #1: Braised Stuffed Bean Curd Price: RM 18 (6pcs), RM 30 (10pcs)

The tau pok containing minced meat, fish meat and chives bursts out delicious juicy fish bone soup when you sink your teeth in.

Four Most Popular Dishes #2: Braised Fried Pork Belly with Yam Price: RM 18 (4 pairs), RM 34 (8 pairs)
This is actually a very special dish worth mentioning because it’s served in pairs. Every slice of braised fried pork belly will be separated with a 1cm slice of yam. The pork belly tastes great as the Nam Yu gravy is very flavorful and the fat ratio of the three layer pork is just right.

Four Most Popular Dishes #3: Home Made Salted Chicken
Price: RM 30 (Half Chicken), RM 58 (Whole Chicken)
Using fresh kampung chicken, the chicken meat was marinated a day before with salt. Although I dislike eating Kampung chicken for the meat is tough, this dish appeared otherwise as it is tender and juicy.

Four Most Popular Dishes #4: Braised Stuffed Bitter Gourd Price: RM 18 (4pcs), RM 27 (6pcs)
Mini bitter gourds were stuffed with minced meat and chives and then steamed to soften it. The tantalizing taste of the minced meat has clearly covered the bitterness of bitter gourd. Bitter gourd is very good for general well-being which includes detoxification.

Pork Belly with Red Wine Residuum Sauce Price: RM 14 (small), RM 28 (large)
Pork Belly with Red Wine is the bomb! Cooked using chinese red wine (the same red wine that is used to cook Red Wine Mee Sua), it doesn’t have any heavy smell of alcohol at all and yet the pork belly tasted really awesome.

Crispy Nam Yu Pork Price: RM 16 (small), RM 32 (large)
As you all might have noticed, they used a lot of Nam Yu in their dishes because it’s one of the traditional ingredients used by people in Gao Zhou to add taste to their food.

Braised Chinese Cabbage with Dried Scallops Price: RM 18 (small), RM 26 (large)
Slices of button mushroom, cabbages, carrots and dried scallops cooked in a thick and sweet gravy. Gravy is perfect to go together with rice.

Stir-Fried “Gao Zhou” Lettuce with Dace in Black Bean Price: RM 16 (small), RM 24 (large)
“Gao Zhou” Lettuce is also known as bitter lettuce and it is one of the most popular ingredients in Gao Zhou dishes. Thus, they have used dace in black bean to stir-fry with it to neutralize the bitterness. If you prefer originality, you can request them to stir fry it without the dace in black bean or with anchovies instead.

Hot & Sour Vegetables Price: RM 12 (small), RM 24 (large)
Perfect as an appetizer or to increase your appetite after a heavy dinner for second round, these Hot and Sour Vegetables are for you. The taste is very unique because it is not the same as the usual Hot and Sour Vegetables that I’ve tasted before.

This fried fresh tilapia covered with thick gravy made using spicy curry powder and fragrant coconut milk is a must try. Spicy curry sauce mixed with rice is a perfect combination.

After being boiled for 6 hours, this Boiled Lean Meat Soup looks clear and full of pork fragrance. Besides that, there is no layer of oil sighted. A healthy soup indeed.

    Hey!!! That's a Foochow dish! Ang chao sam cam bak – Pork Belly with Red Wine Residuum Sauce!!! The irony is I have yet to find a restaurant here that cooks this well. Thankfully, My missus can cook it the way it should be cooked! I wonder what this one tastes like… No alcohol lah – it's the residue from the making of red wine, not the wine per se.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Thanks for the valuable knowledge STP!
      Then you should really try this restaurant's Pork Belly with Red Wine Residuum Sauce and lemme know if it reaches your standard 🙂
