Homei Nyonya Restaurant @ Damansara Uptown
Today we were in a quest to taste Curry Chee Cheong Fun. Earlier for lunch, we tried a place in Kelana Jaya and now for dinner, we are trying another place in Damansara Uptown.
This place is called Homei Nyonya Restaurant and it is right opposite UOB Bank in Damansara Uptown. Finding this place was easy as I am quite familiar with this area. This restaurant looks more like a franchise to me, specializing in Nyonya Food and cakes.
Well, the time we were here, it was almost 9 pm and it seemed quite empty. Still unsure if the kitchen is still open, I approached a guy at the counter and he informed that the last order is at 9.30 pm. Well, since we were planning on having some light single dishes, the available time was sufficient for us.

Somehow it feels very weird at this restaurant. All the workers here are foreigners. The captain being a Bangladeshi, and most of the other workers are Thais and the kitchen workers are all Burmese. They always avoid you, at times even when they see you waving at them, they try to ignore. Thats really bad.

Finally, then I understood. No orders are taken here. We need to walk up to the counter, order and pay like a food court and the food is sent to your table. For such a restaurant, I believe they should at least provide such service. Anyway, we ordered the Curry Chee Cheong Fun and the ordinary Chee Cheong Fun along with an ABC.

Within a short while the food arrived. During this time, there seemed to be quite a traffic in this restaurant, mostly take aways. I still remember they had some Nyonya cakes at display at the entrance of the shop and a few patrons came and waited for someone to attend to them. As expected, no one did and these customers just walked away.
As for the food, the Curry Chee Cheong Fun was okay, I would rate it 6 out of 10. There are much better ones out there. The normal Chee Cheong Fun was 7 out of 10 and the ABC 9/10 . The latter was the best. Indeed rich with ingredients and worth the money.
