Do you wish to stay healthy while enjoying nice meal? Now, you can with Calorie, which is a Hong Kong Style Restaurant that serves healthy and delicious food with a twist. Their all-time signature dish is the Pork Chop with Pumpkin rice. The Baked Pork Chop Rice with Red Sauce was my favourite though – a thick slab of juicy pork chop well marinated and doused with delicious red sauce.

We started the meal with some delicious fruit juices, priced reasonably at RM4.90 each. A large glass with no added sugar or excessive water, I must say. Just how a good glass of fruit juice should be.

We had several dishes of appetizers to be shared, starting with the Vegetable Salad. This was a simple vegetable dish of lettuce, tomatoes, red cabbage and raisins topped with some mayonnaise. Honestly, nothing to shout about except of guiltless feeling

Another healthy appetizer was Vegetable Roll, a piece of crepe wrapped around shredded cabbage, carrot and a slice of cold ham. Again, nothing to shout about this.

Next is something I would highly recommend - Hong Kong Curry Fish Ball!

After the series of appetizers, we sampled several items from the new menu, the first being Baked Pork Rib Rice with XO Sauce. The pork ribs were very well marinated, and the XO sauce was savoury and slightly sweet, perfect accompaniment to the rice.

Another of the new menu item was Baked Pork Rib Rice with Red Sauce, which had similar pork ribs but with a different sauce. The red sauce of tomato base was slightly sour as well as savoury, very appetizing.

According to the owner, the Kowloon Tom Yam Seafood Soup is one of the most popular dish among the customers.

As mentioned earlier, the bestseller was Pork Chop with Pumpkin rice was not only pleasing to the eye but to the palate too. The pumpkin itself was well-baked and sweet, infusing the delicious aroma into the rice. The slice of deep-fried pork chop was crispy and tender, complementing the rice really well. This is a must-order for every first-timer to Calorie.

Next was Pork Chop Fried Rice covered with special egg, something similar to Pattaya fried rice. The generous amount of curry leaves on top gave this dish a very pleasant fragrance.

Finally, the dessert we had was the Glutinous Rice Ball with Black Sesame on Pu Erh Red Chinese Tea. Refreshing and not overly sweet, definitely a healthy choice for dessert.
