New Paris, SS2

It was the cousin's birthday recently and it didn't surprise me at all that when asked where he'd like us to gather for some birthday indulging, he said, "Paris!". Having grown up in the area, he's always had a soft spot for the place, perhaps a result of a mixture of childhood familiarity, good food and amazingly short waiting times.

New Paris
No. 62, 64, 66, Jalan SS2/72,
47300 Petaling Jaya,
Selangor, Malaysia.
The "New" Paris spots a large, bright, unmissable sign and is a far cry from the small outlet that it used to be. One gets a sense of the efficiency that is to come even before stepping into the restaurant - on my last visit, I was very quickly directed to a parking spot right in front of the restaurant and was helped along as I parked so that my car would take up the minimum possible space. 
  Braised pork knuckle - nothing like a good pork knuckle dish to kick of the celebrations. Braised till deliciously tender, this was a real winner.  

One of our must-haves - stir fried lotus root with a nice mix of other vegetables (and those delicious roasted cashews). What's different about the one here is the slightly cheesy sauce that lightly coats the vegetables, a bit of fusion, if you may. 

The Chinese restaurant staple - the simple (but incredibly satisfying if done right) deep fried fish with soy sauce. 

The house special, tofu that's ever so slightly crisp on the outside topped with a simple (but effective!) mix of minced meat and salted turnip.

New Paris also serves up other "tai chow" favourites like Marmite (insert meet of choice here), braised pork ribs and kung po chicken. If you're the sort who thinks a meal is not complete without a good serving of soup, you can get your soup fix here, too. 
The birthday boy was happy (so were the rest of us) - few things are more rewarding than sharing a meal with family, what more one that involves braised pork knuckle.
