Wonderful Father's Day at Kim Gary Restaurant

Dad and mom had been discussing where to celebrate Father's Day after worship. Finally we decided to have our lunch at Kim Gary Restaurant on 18.6.2011.

Kim Gary Restaurant is a Hong Kong-style eating outlet. It has a chain of restaurants around Asia. They have not only Hong Kong style food nowadays, in fact Spanish, Korean, Japanese style food also.

We applied for a member card. RM15 for life. There are a couple of free coupons that comes with the card. You can choose either orange or black colour for the member card. Mom prefered black. They give us lots of coupon throughout the year. With the member card and the coupon, we can redeem 1 free gift every month when we pay a visit to Kim Gary.
It was pretty crowded. A big clap to the service crew. They managed to have everything under control. They were so considerate of elder people. They took out two chairs from the restaurant. Grandparents had comfortable chairs to sit. Granpa was unable to stand for long periods of time.

The restaurant is always packed especially during lunch hour, high-tea, late evening tea, dinner time and even supper. Could you see that? The crowd started building up. We had to queue up for our seat.
We chose Frist Avenue Kim Gary as our choice for lunch because we like the environment here. Purple and black are a great combination. Besides that, we hope that we can introduce this new shopping mall to grandparents. This was their first visit. 1st Avenue shopping mall is one of our favourite places to shop around recently.
This restaurant offers a wider variety of set meals during lunch hour. Different types of rice and noodles. We ordered a set lunch each from the extensive menu. For every set of meal, drinks and soups are included. We get to choose from a list of drinks, some might charge extra. There are only two options of soup, borsch soup or cream soup.
Once we took a seat, we were immediately served. The serving of food was quite fast despite the huge crowd in the restaurant. Grandpa chose Set D. Steack in black pepper sauce served with rice. Lydia perfered set D. Hot and Spicy Chicken Chop served with rice.

Grandma and mom perfered a small mug of savoury borsch. It was sourly tomato soup.

Grandpa, dad and both of you perfered cream soup. Mixture of western and asian style set lunch. The creamy sauce is more of a western choice, but the rice makes it oriental.Western-style eating patterns have become more common in Asia.What a mix of both Western and Asian eating culture nowadays.

Grandmom ordered E-Mix set ML. We could not snap the picture because our camera was suddenly out of batteries. The photo above mom uploaded from internet.
Hot stone grill rice.Breaking the tradition of serving Hong Kong Style dishes, they now introduce this Korean Style dish. This korean dish is call “bibimbap”. When it was served to our table, we found this hot pot rice so aromatic. The pot was very hot and never let your fingers touch it unless you want yourself to get burned. It costs RM17.90.

Mom ordered a famous set of Cheese Baked Rice. It was served in a Dim Sum basket and the presentation was excellent. The portion was pretty big as well. This set of Cheese Baked Rice consists of the main cheese baked rice dish, soup, dessert and drink. This set of lunch costs RM17.90. Overall, the price was just average.

A plate of Prawn Seafood Cheese Baked Rice with double cheese which ordered by Priscilla. Strongly recommended by dad and mom. The ingredients served were generous, with mussels, squids, prawns and fish cakes. Any purchase of that order, with an additional Rm3, we are entitle for one drink, one soup and also one dessert.The set only costs RM21.90. Anyway, its quantity was too much for Priscilla.
A yummy and refreshing drink. This drink has a beautiful Chinese name" 热带雨林”. We had to add RM1.00 for the drinks because it's a premium drink on the menu. The drinks which served free were Chinese Tea, Green Tea and Hong Kong Style Tea. Other than that, it will be charged RM1.00 extra.
Dad ordered a cup of hot ying yong. Ying yong simply means white coffee with tea.You can have it either hot or cold according to your preference. A marriage between coffee and milk tea. It was advisable to order a cold one on our next visit.
Lemon and coke served in a jug.
Mom love Japanese-style green tea as well.

The dessert looks similar like 'Tau Foo Fah' .

Kim Gary does serve one of the best French Toast in town. It is served hot and fresh from the stove.Grandpa enjoyed French toast very much. It costs RM4.90. Meanwhile, Kim Gary also provide a wide range of snacks.

We also tried "peanut butter sandwich" which only cost RM4.30. A half cm deep hole was dug out of the top of the bread and filled in with peanut butter. Everything was smoothed over and condensed milk is drizzled over.
Seeing a happy smile on grandma's face, we knew that grandma enjoyed her lunch here. So did grandpa. Happy Father's Day, grand pa. Mom also miss my dad in heaven very much. He meant so much to me and shaped my life in so many positive ways. "Gong gong" presence will always be felt.
We had a wonderful Father Day's in Kim Gary restaurant. It's totally a very big portion. It was a very heavy meal for us. Our tummies were about to burst. The love, the togetherness, the food fully content in our heart. After lunch, we decided to visit a relative who was sick.

Girls, we will probably be back again on dad's big day. Both of you are blessed to have such a great dad. God blessed us and He had given us such wonderful moments to remember and to treasure.
