Steven's Wok Corner @ Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya

I am sure that many are familiar with Damansara Uptown Hawker Centre. This hawker centre has a good spread of food options and they are all Halal. Since my last trip here to try the Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun, I noticed the next stall called Steven's Wok Corner, not to be confused with Steven's Western Corner, does serve some fried Chinese dishes and he too had a decent number of customers while I was there. Having made a mental note then, I decided to try the place out tonight.

Seating Spaces
The stall number is 1098 and he is located right beside the famous Ah Keong Yong Tau Fu & Chee Cheong Fun stall, right opposite Steven's Western Corner and it is hard to miss this place. He only sells a number of dishes, 12 if I am not mistaken and the orders seemed to be piling up for him. After contemplating for a while, we decided on what to have and went over to his stall to place the orders. He handles the order taking and cooking and serving is done by a helper.

Fried Cuttlefish @ RM 12.00

Fried Cuttlefish @ RM 12.00
It took about 20 minutes for the first dish to arrive. The Fried Cuttlefish was priced at RM 12.00 and the portion was quite decent. The batter used to coat the cuttlefish was nothing more but the famous Kentucky flour, but it takes an art to fry it to a crisp golden brown perfection and Steven did it very well. The cuttlefish was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. You don't need the chili sauce provided to dip as even on it's own, it was very nice. I would rate this at 9.3/10 .

Char Kuey Teow @ RM 5.00

Char Kuey Teow @ RM 5.00
The Char Kuey Teow was just okay. It was cooked with an egg and a single piece of prawn was in the dish. It was decent but would have been better if more eggs and cockles were added to the dish. This seemed like the preparation that you get in a normal restaurant when you ask for Fried Kuey Teow and it was not up to the mark of those specialty Char Kuey Teow vendors out there. For the price of RM 5.00, the portion was decent. I would rate this at 7/10 .

In summary, I was impressed with the cuttlefish but not the Char Kuey Teow. Perhaps, should try out his other seafood dishes the next time we are here. Maybe, just maybe, those would be equally good as the Fried Cuttlefish.
