Hunan Cuisine (火宫殿)

Another long overdue entry~ We are quite done with our Hunan's journey, though I skip a rather whole lot of uninteresting spot~ Which means we are left with the most important part of a trip(besides sightseeing), food~

If you google(or rather Baidu) for famous Hunan cuisine, this will surely pop up...The Fire Palace(火宫殿)
Fancy to try the most authentic Hunan cuisine?~ You are in the right place~

It is located in Chang Sha Huang Xing Road Shopping Street(长沙黄兴路步行街)...this is actually their newer branch, not so sure where is their main outlet~

There are trolleys of famous hunan cuisine for you to choose from~ Or simply just order anything that you find interesting on the menu~
This pancake was a bummer though~

Very nice~crispy and fragrance...taste was not bad either~

Cold dish~ Not too bad actually, perhaps abit too spicy~

Their very own special type of tofu~ Very different than the conventional yellow bean tofu~ Theirs has more of a chewy texture~good~

Some sort of yam thingy~ Not acceptable~

Some glutinous rice with filling.....special and nice~

Fried banana...thats what written in the menu~ Was wondering how different is it from our goreng pisang~ Turn out we were surprised yet again~ Instead of fried banana, it should be fried banana paste or dough~ Nevertheless, very nice!

Another must try! Not so sure what is it anymore but totally fantastic! Few types of meat, vege and carbo/noodle structure thingy(The best I could describe).......40 bucks per plate..but totally worth it~

It was finished in a jiffy~

Egg wrap~ Always nice~

Forgotten what it is~

Steam good as it can be~

 photo IMG_3760_zps8255e4da.jpg
Again, not sure what it is anymore~

Fried dumplings~ of course its nice~

 photo IMG_3763_zps4e10d248.jpg
Better off with their special spicy sauce~

Towards the end of our meal, thought of wana have some local fried noodles, just to try~
So we ordered "炒面"(fried noodle).......the waiter seems unconvinced~ remind us that, this is not fried noodle, but fried flour!(炒面粉) Totally intrigued by what might be served, we decided to order one~
This was what presented ---- fried flour~ Tasted more like our sesame paste really(芝麻糊)~But more oily and stuffy~

Very ordinary tofu~

 photo IMG_3769_zpsc3b0c6e9.jpg
Finally, some dessert~

 photo IMG_3001_zpsf2b00bd4.jpg
Overall not a bad meal at all~

 photo IMG_3002_zpsee89039c.jpg
Might be abit pricey though...the above meal might cost about 300 bucks~ About 150 ringgit~
