Peninsula Chinese Cuisine in Ara Damansara specialises in banquet-style dining at predictably steep prices - at RM35, its roasted crispy pork belly can safely be skipped, while the fried rice with morsels of Parma ham & smoked duck is competent without being compelling (RM45). Forgo the pork chop, mismatched with a cloying, artificial-tasting strawberry glaze (RM42).

No harm, no foul from this PJ offshoot of a Singaporean family of restaurants: Chun Kee's prawn sauce chicken, crispy soft shell crab with pork floss, sliced snakehead fish bee hoon soup, herbal chicken & sliced fish hor fun might not exactly be the sort of stuff that inspires fervent sonnets, but it won't be a lunch that unleashes feverish brickbats either. Easy meal to finish.
