Extra Super Tanker Restaurant @ The Club, Bukit Utama

Just like one more for the road, its one more review before Chinese New Year.

Wait, it was meant to be one more before Chinese New Year but looked likes its more like before the end of the 15 days will be a more appropriate title.

Finally got to try out the Extra Super Tanker Restaurant just before Chinese New Year. Having browsed their website before to find many unique creations, a group of us finally got together to 'lou sang' and try out some of their signature dishes. It was also my first time meeting up with some new faces, saying hi to Kat from Abu Dhabi and Pureglutton!

Located at The Club @ Bukit Utama, the restaurant looks like any normal restaurant with an above average decor and ambience. The dishes that we ordered however were anything less than ordinary.

Not many restaurants serve acar as a starter on the table, but they do.

For starters, we had the Pear Yee Sang, thick chunky strips of sweet chinese pear brings a refreshing bite to what otherwise is a staple dish throughout all the Chinese New Year dinners.

Fermented bean curd flavoured pork ribs soup with foo chook, some say it wasn't as thick as their outlet in Damansara Kim. All the same as it was comforting for a rainy night with fall of the bone ribs.

Not any normal beancurd but a Thousand Layer Crispy Beancurd. Well actually its more like 5 layers with 2 layers of ham and 3 layers of bean curd. True to its description, the outer layer is crispy while the inside is soft and melt in your mouth.

Roast Duck?


Some funky action


The awesome crispy peking duck pancake! To pre-order and i think it is like RM78 per duck but worth every drop of cholesterol it delivers.

After such wonderful creations, the mix vegetables and seafood sang mee looked rather plain jane but still lip smacking all the same.

So before the end of the 15 days, go give them a visit!

Address and contact details:

1, Club Drive, Bukit Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Tel: 03-77268877

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Appreciate the creativeness in coming up with delicious chinese dishes without adding the word fusion.

Love the food here, although I definitely prefer the Damansara Kim outlet. The peking duck pancake thingy is really good.
