Pumpkin Butter Prawn & Green Dragon Vege @ Restoran Shen Jing Seng, Cheras


This could be one of the hidden gem of Cheras.

Located at one of the gardens (taman-taman) behind Phoenix Plaza, its one of the restaurants that not many people would know. My parents brought us there a few times and the food were consistently good. The last round we were there was a few months ago for dinner.


We started with the stir fried potato leaf with fermented beancurd. Noticed that this dish was slightly dry but it was well stir fried. I preferred such dry version that the sloppy fermented beancurd stir fried version.


This was something that I never tried before. They called it the green dragon vegetables. The unique name came with an unique taste. The vege itself was soft but it was well blended with the sauce. Vege was fresh and it was very tasty.

foo chok

Fish cake with foo chok was quite decent. The home made fish cake was fresh and tender.

hot pot

The hot pot squid could be addictive. To me, the level of spiciness was just nice to me. This was good.


Steamed Fish with ginger was slightly disappointed as it was slightly overcooked. If not, it would be perfect. Fish was generously covered with ginger.


There was nothing to impress me more than this dish. The pumpkin butter prawns. This was my first time having such dish. Prawns cooked with butter and pumpkin sauce and served inside a fresh pumpkin. The taste was outstanding and its deeply flavoured in the world of butter and pumpkin. Amazing!

The food was generally good and price was very reasonable. Service was okay and the place was well air conditioned.
