Restoran CH Herbal Soup

CH (Chong Hwa) is in mood of expanding with different foods such as Dim Sum and Herbal soup within the vicinity of Setapak.
I like the huge vases where the herbal soups are being prepared. It must be a hot vase furnace where all the soup is slowly and perfectly cooked for us.
Pots of individual portion is prepared sealed and to be placed into the huge vases.

Gai Tod Gratiam Prik Thai - Deep fried boneless chicken.
Tom Som - Clear Galangal lemongrass lime soup was such a gorgeous soup that I made sure nothing was left from the bowl.
Plah Nung Manow - Steamed siakap fish with lime chili padi garlic dressing.
