Today, I am going to share some of the wonderful dishes offers by Young Heart Restaurant to all my readers. The main purpose for this visit is to introducing the new dishes prepare by the chef for welcoming Chinese New Year. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to CK and Ann Kee for inviting us (food floggers) for attending this food functions. lol
We get to savour lot of foods such as vegetables rolls, home made dumplings, different style of noodles and more...........
The owner ~ Ms Ann Kee is inspire with a plant called "Sweet Heart Hoya". So you can see the plants are placed inside and outside of the restaurant. I myself loves Hoya a lots. But I did not have the sweet heart hoya. lol I have the normal one only. lol Basically the Sweet Heart Hoya have a Heart Shape leaves as the logo of the restaurant.

Next...... let me bring you to their interior settings of the restaurant. I like the settings of the restaurant as it is very cosy and quiet. Once you enter the restaurant you will feel so relax. lol
It is a place where you can arrange some gathering with your friends/ families/ farewell.........

Next..... come to the menu........ There are lot of varieties of foods and drinks to choose from. I am sure everyone will get the foods and drinks they love from here. If you are not sure what to have, please ask for some suggestion from Ms. Ann. She will introduce you with foods that suit you.

We were first served with beverages........... We have two types of drinks for the night ~
Honey Lemon with Aloe Vera – RM6.00 and
Chamomile & Chrysanthemum Tea – RM4.50

Honey Lemon with Aloe Vera
For the honey lemon drink it cost only RM4.00 per glass but if you want to add Aloe Vera, you have to add RM2.00 more per glass.
The aloe vera has many benefits for us. You want to know more about the benefits, please click on the link. lol

Above photo is the type of aloe vera used by Young Heart Restaurant.
As for the Chamomile and Chrysanthemum Tea, it is a very soothing drinks. Once you get your first sip, you will know that there are two kind of tastes in the drink. As I think everyone should know the benefits of chrysanthemum tea so I will not elaborate much on that. However, the interesting part is young heart combine both Chamomile and chrysanthemum together. Chamomile have lots of benefits.... and one of the benefits is help you to relax. lol
I just realised that I did not take any shots for Chamomile and Chrysanthemum Tea. But I do take the following shot of the dried version of Chamomile and Chrysanthemum:
