Hui Shang Ying

Special thanks to Hui Shang Ying for extending this product review invitation.

Plus 2 Restaurant (加二餐厅) is located near the Sungai Dua entrance of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). The restaurant serves Chinese stir-fried (煮炒) dishes including its signature Deep Fried Chicken In Marmite Sauce (玛蜜酥鸡). A start-up food business, Hui Shang Ying (卉尚颖), temporarily operates from here. The brand's name is homophonic with "会上瘾", which means "irresistible".
Hui Shang Ying debuts with its sole product for now: Premium Rice Dumpling (高品质粽子). The rice dumpling is made from glutinous rice (糯米) with various fillings. As per tradition, the dumpling is wrapped in bamboo leaves (箬叶) in a tetrahedral shape. The wrapping process requires precise handwork - too loose and the dumpling breaks apart; too tight and it sticks to the leaves. After wrapping, the dumpling is further cooked in boiling water for several hours.
The Premium Rice Dumpling uses glutinous rice that has been pre-fried with ground pepper and peanut powder. Pork belly (五花肉) is marinated overnight, and then roasted before being added to the rice dumpling. Other ingredients are a salted duck egg (咸鸭蛋), chestnuts (栗子), black-eyed peas (眉豆), fried shrimps, fried garlic and fried onions. Overall, the taste of dumpling is delectable especially with the presence of soft pork belly.
Hui Shang Ying's Premium Rice Dumpling is priced at RM7.80 each. Currently, customers can get hold of the dumpling from Plus 2 Restaurant. Alternatively, interested parties can also place orders by email or through Hui Shang Ying's Facebook page. Hui Shang Ying currently delivers throughout the entire Penang Island.
If you visit Plus 2 Restaurant before 2:30pm, do check out its Wan Tan Mee (云吞面, RM4.20 for medium size). The egg noodle is blanched in hot water until it becomes cooked, and then tossed with sweet soy sauce for flavoring. The noodle's springiness is the main appeal of this dish.
The plate of Wan Tan Mee is served with barbecued pork (叉烧) and bok choy (小白菜). Also included is a bowl of clear soup with Chinese dumplings (饺子) and wan tan (云吞).
