First famous restaurant? No.1 famous restaurant? Most famous restaurant? Whatever your name can be, but if your food is bad, also useless, but, this is a feast! I love it the way they put all the things I order into 1 plate, roasted pork, roasted duck, steamed chicken, Chinese sausage, all arrange nicely, simply just nice!
I ain’t cheat ya, the name of the restaurant is really Restaurant First Famous Federal, and located at Lorong Susu, what a good name for a road.
The tables inside the restaurant is a mix of those normal cheapo table you can find in almost any coffee shop, and those more expansive antique style type table. The same goes to the chair. However, please come earlier since the restaurant itself is quite small, and it do attract loads of people especially during peak hour at lunch time.
1 bowl of chai boay (preserved vegetables soup) will be given to every table, and it’s really a superb appetizer since the sourness of it will really open up your taste bud! The chai boay is full of flavor since it was cooked with all the unwanted bones from the roasted duck and chicken they sell. I do wish if its more spicy though. 7.5/10
Initially I thought the chili sauce will be nice, but well, just average like normal one lo.
The roasted pork here is good, with really crispy skin and nice proportion of fat and lean meat, yummmy! 8.0/10
The roasted duck here is nice too, really crispy skin and tender meat. I do find that the duck given is a bit too little for me, well yea, I think the chef thought that we can’t finish it since we only had 2 person to finish such big plate of meat! 7.8/10
The steamed chicken here is quite normal, although the skin is very smooth and the meat is very tender, but I ain’t a fan of reddish meat at all. However, the lap cheong (chinese sausage) here is just divine. I love this way more than the one from Sky Hotel, just awesome. The meat is really juicy, the sweetness is just ngam ngam hou, oh mai……slurp. 9.0/10
We didn’t have the chance to try their char siew though since it was not ready yet when we were there. Too bad for us.
First famous federal restaurant, located at Lorong Susu off Macalister Road is really a superb place to have lunch when you have all those meat meat meat cravings.
