Have you ever tried the Hakka Lei Cha before? Lei Cha (擂茶) is a traditional savory drink for the Hakka people. It is literally a type of "pounded tea" whereby the Hakka tea-based beverage or gruel consisting of a mix of tea leaves and herbs that are ground or pounded together with various roasted nuts, seeds, etc.
One of the place where this Hakka Lei Cha dish can be found is in Wok Dish Way located somewhere nearby Sunway Giza Mall in Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya.
|LeiCha Fried Rice RM9.40|
The LeiCha Fried Rice is one of their signature dish to be found in the cafe. This fried rice is not often to be seen elsewhere or even in those typical restaurant that offer Hakka Lei Cha. Being a very unique this, the fried rice is cooked with the lei cha paste along with all the other basic Hakka Lei Cha ingredients such as the different type of vegetables, peanuts, fried bean curd and not to forget the Hakka Lei Cha itself that make the fried rice less dry.
The green watery texture of lei cha is filled into the traditional grindstone which is used for grinding the ingredients of Lei Cha.
Nikel Khor, a food blogger, had the honor to mix the Lei Cha together with the ingredients and brown rice which cost RM8.90. Customers can also choose to have white rice instead if they do not prefer to have brown rice at RM7.90.
|LeiCha (White Rice) RM7.90|
The LeiCha (White Rice) ready to be eaten by me! :D
|Sweet & Sour Deep Fried Talapia RM15 - RM35|
Common sense that I had is that fishes that are deep fried normally have been frozen for a period of time hence they are no longer fresh. Despite the freshness of the fish, the sweet and sour sauce taste moderately and acceptable.
|Crispy Seaweed RM7.90|
This was one of my favorite. I think combining the crispy seaweed with the chicken floss was really a good idea. Although the preparation of this dish seems to be simple but the presentation looks quite nice.
|Jiang Bao Dish RM10|
If you can take spicy food, this one is a must try. The pork meat was very well marinated and the sauce goes well with it. The colours of this dish also made my mouth watering at this moment! LOL
|Mee Hun Kuey RM6.90|
A type of noodle which is almost has the similar taste as pan mee but originally from Johor, this Mee Hun Kuey was quite tasty and the soup contains very less MSG.
|Special Pork Trotter in Vinegar (RM11 - RM30)|
I've never been a fan of the vinegar pork trotter but this one is a must try! It's not too sour for my liking and the pork wasn't too fat or oily.
|Deep Fried Pork with Red Beancurd (RM8 - RM15)|
This one was everyone's favorite because this dish didn't last more than 5 minutes on our table and it's already gone!
|Special Cucumber RM4|
We were actually quite surprised when we saw this dish to be served to us. Nothing really great about this since they only use the Japanese Cucumber instead of the normal ones with the 'chicken rice soya sauce'. I won't be bothered to order this since I don't even finish the cucumbers served together with my chicken rice.
|Ice Blended Peanut Milk RM6.90|
This drink is really dedicated to those peanuts lover and you can really taste the chunkiness of the peanuts blended together with the ice. There's also a few pieces of unblended peanuts on top of the drink. Definitely not a good thirst quencher since I need to get another glass of cold water after finishing this.
As for dessert, we had this icy cool and sweet bowl of cendol. The taste wasn't overly sweeten but it's good enough to cool down my body temperature and it has quite an authentic cendol taste which I had in Melaka but minus the durian.
They have a pretty simple yet clean interior design of the cafe.
Not to forget, the group photo of the owner with the fellow bloggers who went for the food review.
The cafe is right next to a car tyre service center which is located at the corner and is the same row with Snowflakes.
