Been there before (2)…

I’ve been to these places before but not my daughter since she was out of the country at the time.

I took her to the coffee shop for Roy’s Asian Flavours and I had the fried sambal noodles…

…which were fine but considering that there was hardly any taste of it, I would prefer a stronger dose of sambal so as to make it more fragrant.

My daughter liked the Vietnamese beef kway teow

….though I personally feel that they should make their own fried shallots. If I’m not mistaken, they use those factory-made packed ones sold at the supermarket and I would never buy those as I simply do not fancy the smell or the taste.

I kept telling her to go slow on her noodles while waiting for the chicken croquettas (RM1.00 each)…

…and the fried fish paste pancake (RM2.00)…

…as these would be a whole lot nicer and the noodles might just spoil her appetite. Well, she loved and enjoyed them a lot…as I had expected.

We also dropped by the Noodle House and she had the sizzling beef kampua (RM8.90) that I had on my previous visit…

…and she loved it – I did too when I had that.

This time around, I tried their sizzling sambal seafood kampua (RM12.90)…

…which was nice but I thought it was a bit pricey and the amount of seafood in it was not that substantial. Between the two, I would think the beef is a better deal. I was also kind of disappointed that the broccoli was over-boiled – soft and not crunchy at all. Tsk! Tsk!

We had the salt and pepper fried sotong (RM6.90)…

…which was all right – the ones we had on an earlier occasion at another place were cheaper and a lot nicer.

Another side dish we ordered was the fried dumplings…

I cannot remember how much that cost – probably RM3.90, if I’m not mistaken. Tastewise, it was all right – nothing to shout about and certainly not something that I would want to go back for more.

And thus our food marathon continues….. LOL!!!
