An unpretentious Chinese restaurant that has been around for more than 10 years, and have seen better days than today. I still remember back then Taman Daya was a relatively quiet neighbourhood, unlike the booming scene we are experiencing today, traffic, traffic and more traffic. On the contrary, Eng Huaa's fortune was left dwindling, a far cry from its pinnacle. We used to visit it very frequently, maybe a weekly affair thing but with the onslaught of new eateries around Setia Indah & Austin area, Eng Huaa has slowly fallen off our radar. 

Let's take a look at what I had for lunch ... in a clockwise manner.

Rose marinated chicken. The chicken is smooth and tender, oozing a mildly flavoured rose aroma. I think they use kampung chicken, that tends to be leaner and has less fats underneath the skin. Rating: 7.5/10
Stir fried spinach. The usual fare, nothing to blog about. Rating 6.0/10
Spicy pork ribs 干香排骨. The taste is good but unfortunately the ribs were overcooked and meat were tough to chew. What a letdown. Rating: 5.5/10.
 Dry curry powdered fish. I thought it was all good except for the slightly over-the-top buttery flavour. Rating: 6.5/10
Thai styled beancurd. The beancurd is smooth and nicely deep fried, topped with Thai chilli sauce and generous amount of onions and chillis shreds. Rating: 7.0/10.

Price: 6.5/10
Service: 6.5/10
Conclusion: Standard of food has definitely dropped, which is rather regretful as they used to be so good in what they offer. Their dishes exudes creativity, flavour and quality but now all I see is just another mediocre joint that can definitely do better. I will continue to patronise them and hopefully there will be a better experience next time round.
