Lonely no more…

I’ve had a lot of posts on my regular Malay stall at Bandong where I have been able to get some very nice food at very affordable prices. It opens only during lunch hour and one would have to go early for even before 1, most of the things would have been sold out.

Well, all this while, it had been the one and only stall operating in the vicinity – a kind of monopoly, so to speak. Recently, however, it seems that they finally have some company – somebody has started another stall a hundred metres away (right next to the surau). The man told me that it belongs to a West Malaysian married to a local and he did not seem disturbed by the competition.

The other day, I decided to stop by that new stall to have a look and one glance told me why. This new guy has fewer choices and the things do not look as nice. I bought this beef rendang for RM5.00…

Beef rendang

…which is not available at my regular stall, and also this acar timum (cucumber pickle) for RM3.00…

Acar timun

Both turned out to be pretty good…and I wouldn’t mind buying them again sometime. I also bought the  eggs (RM1.00 each)…

Acar telur

These seemed a bit nicer than those at the old place…and it was extra hot and spicy.

So all in all, I spent RM10.00, more than enough for dinner for my missus and me. Too bad the other dishes that they have to offer do not look too appealing…
