Not really…

I knew my friend, Kongkay, had been there as I saw his photograph taken at this place…

…on Facebook but when I asked him about it, he did not sound very enthusiastic at all.

But I had heard some favourable reviews of the kaya (coconut jam) buns…

…with kaya and salted egg inside.

I also heard that they were selling those traditional Foochow fish balls – the ones with minced meat inside…so the other morning, I decided to drop by the place to give it a try.

I ordered something that looked like it…

Quail egg meat balls

…but it turned out that they had quail eggs inside and I wasn’t sure whether it was fish or meat…

The ham rolls or should I say, luncheon meat rolls were something I had not seen elsewhere before…

Luncheon meat rolls

…so I ordered those too. They had century egg inside…

…and I also tried the siew mai/sio bee (meat dumplings)…

After I had had a sample of the things they had to offer at this place, I could jolly well understand the response I received from Kongkay when I asked him about it…and if you should ask me whether it is any good, my response would be: “Not really!”
