Keep coming back…

I keep going back to this place even though, if you may recall from my posts here and here, the food is not that great – definitely not something that would get me going back there for more. So why do I keep dropping by then, you may ask? Well, for one thing, the location is very convenient – it is somewhere on the way to my parents’ house, so I/we can just stop there for a bite along the way. Another thing is, of course, parking is easily available and there is no parking fee.

Well, my missus and I went there last Sunday morning and she had the tom yam noodles…

She said it was quite nice and much better than what she had at this other place.

I had the chin th’ng mihun (clear soup rice noodles)…

…which was not too bad either but like I said, somehow the things are not so nice that I would not be able to wait to go back there again for more. What I had here was definitely a lot nicer.

For one thing, the coffee there is pretty good…

Then, two days later, I had to meet Louis J who had come back from his wedding in Kuching and he wanted to pass me the invitation to Kpg Nangka Boy’s wedding in Kuching in mid-September. Well, we agreed to meet at that same place and we tried the stuff at the Malay stall in theshop. Louis had the fried rice…

…and I had their fried kway teow

He liked his order…and I thought mine was all right too…but again, there wasn’t much to shout about, I’m afraid.

There is a new stall, it seems, selling bak kut teh and a variety of things…and I also noticed that they have changed the people cooking at the char chu section at the back. Taking that into consideration, I’d probably be dropping by again and hopefully, one of these days, I’ll find something there that is really really nice. Keeping my fingers crossed!
