Lou Sang @ New Paris Restaurant SS2

new paris

Restaurant New Paris is renowned for two things – their watermelon chicken and the speed their dishes are served. I was there for the second lou sang dinner of the year – there were 24 of us so we occupied two tables on the third floor. Yes, despite it’s humble exterior, Restaurant New Paris actually has three (!) floors of dining splendor.

new paris owner

I neglect to mention the other thing New Paris Restaurant in SS2 is famous for – the loudspeaker-toting proprietor. He takes his hailer and literally shouts out orders to the crew, you just have to experience it. Heh! You can see how often that is done by the well-loved and duct-taped hailer. Hail to the (real) King, baby! πŸ˜‰
(no pun intended)

The full three stories of Restaurant New Paris are captured here. It wasn’t quite full when we arrived at 6:30 pm but by the time it reached around 7 pm the entire three floors of New Paris Restaurant was absolutely packed! It’s very popular, that’s for sure. I also learnt the arcane art of “cleansing” cups – you’re supposed to pour hot tea into one and then swirl it around before pouring it into the next cup. Rinse and repeat.

I present – the salmon yee sang of New Paris Restaurant! Most of the ingredients are sourced off-the-shelf…

…but it’s the ceremony that matters! More $ during the next year! More bonuses! Higher paychecks! Win 6k in Genting! Snag Cameron Diaz! Okay, maybe not that last one.

new paris aftermath

We were very enthusiastic about the entire thing…look at the aftermath of the lau sang session. I think some of it got into my drink as well… -_-!!!

new paris food

I like the quaint steamed rice in a pot that Restaurant New Paris serves their rice in. The butter prawns was tasty too. I wouldn’t be in a rush to write home about the omelet, vegetables, or the tofu but their pork leg is ze best! Excellent!

new paris fish

No Chinese New Year dinner would be complete without fish. This is ginger fish, steamed before being deep-fried. I was astounded that this was actually possible. How can you steam a fish and then deep fry it? Logistics aside, the ginger fish was great.

watermelon chicken

However, the signature dish of Restaurant New Paris is their watermelon chicken. It has scoops of fresh watermelon on the side with the hollowed out fruit being used as a receptacle for sweet and sour chicken. It’s fabulous and the presentation is great. It’s so good there was watermelon ball poaching amongst the two tables. πŸ™‚

Restaurant New Paris serves good Chinese food and the upside is that they churn out their dishes really fast. I mean, really fast, as in Speedy Gonzalez kind of fast. The flagship watermelon chicken should not be missed. The chicken pieces are tender and flavorful and I could only find the Good Parts (TM) inside – drums, thighs etc.

Anyway, I’ll be driving down to Ipoh later for an overnight road trip. Catch you all tomorrow. Happy Chinese New Year everyone! πŸ™‚

  8. I’ve been patronizing Paris since I was a child. Like the way to give a big bowl of rice for you to re-fill and fast service. They are one of the very first restaurant to introduce lemon chicken.

  9. Simon Seow: Yeah, the fast service is the best eh? Lemon chicken? When? We had lemon chicken for AGES (since I was 13 – good 15 years ago) in Sibu.

  10. Awsome article and right to the point. I don’t know if this is really the best place to ask but do you guys have any ideea where to get some professional writers? Thank you πŸ™‚

  11. Hey there, This post is rather educational and fun to read. I am a huge follower on the things blogged about. I also adore reading the comments, but it looks like a whole lot of readers need to stay on topic to try and add anything towards the original topic. I would also encourage all of you to bookmark this article for the most utilized service to help get the term out. Thanks Greetings! I want to say gracias for an exciting website about a something I’ve had an interest in for quite a few many years now. I have been lurking and reading the posts avidly and just wanted to express my thanks for offering me with some really great posts.

  12. Solutions including the just one you will described the following will likely be handy if you ask me! I am going to blog post a web link to our webpage for the blog site. Seen the targeted visitors will discover of which beneficial.

  13. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  14. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  15. Hi, this is a well written post. I just bookmarked your site. To be truthful, although I read a lot in this area. I still picked up quite a lot today. Kindly continue the amazingly good post and I will tell my friends about it.

  16. Many thanks you drastically for this excellent and really insightful write-up. Any specific could possibly get superb data and information from this useful post.excellent carry out continue to keep it up. I am likely to bookmark this web web page for came again yet again in long term.

  17. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  18. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  19. Naturamax Pills are a natural penis enlargement and male enhancement pills. It is made up of several natural and herbal ingredients which have been proven to aid in sexual health. More than 10000 people have used already and there is great feedback.There is no need to convince readers about the effectiveness of Naturamax penis enlargement pills. It has been at the top slot for ages and still “is” the ultimate solution for penis enlargement. When you take this herbal supplement, you will visibly notice miraculous increase in the penis size. Some men have had 25% increases in penis size from their actual size. When so many age-old trusted ingredients are combined to produce such a pill, we can only expect things to get better; after all natural way is the best way.

  20. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
