Spend some time…

I guess everyone knows by now that my girl is on holiday and we are taking this chance to spend some time together and of course, one of the things we would do would be to go out some place and eat whatever that may tickle our fancy.

The other morning, we dropped by here…

B@CC

…and if you may recall, I was here myself not too long ago.

This time around, I ordered the egg avocado mayo sandwich (RM8.80)…

EAMS 1

…which was pretty good and other than the slices of avocado, tomato and the green vegetable in it, they had sliced hardboiled egg in the sandwich…

EAMS 2

not mashed like mine.

My missus ordered the Foochow fried noodles, wet (with sauce/gravy)…

FFN,W

…and it was very nicely done as well but for RM7.80, I would have thought there would be a bit more ingredients, a few tiny shrimps…or some fish balls or fish cake slices perhaps.

Melissa wanted their Sibu Foochow style siew mai/sio bee (RM5.00 for a set of 6), lightly- pan fried…

SM, fried

…and steamed…

FSM, steamed

– both very nice and quite reasonably priced, I would say. Actually, Melissa likes the fried ones more as they would have that special fragrance that would result from the frying…and thankfully, that morning, they were not served in those badly-chipped plates anymore – remember the one they used on my previous visit and I said that if I were to see them using that again, I would just pretend to drop it accidentally on purpose and break it?

Melissa had the savoury pancakes with bacon (RM13.80) that I had on that earlier occasion and as you see from her expression in the photograph…

PC with bacon

…she was not exactly enjoying it as much as I did. For one thing, they were using a different kind of bacon this time around – the streaky type and they did not grill it enough – it came out pale and there were still those layers of fat which made it kind of over-oily and combined with the melted butter, it sort off put Melissa off and she seemed to be struggling through it. In the end, I had to take over and finish it for her. Personally, I am not a fan of those streaky bacon with all the layers of fat myself either – by the time I have it grilled till crispy and all the fat has melted, there would not be very much left to enjoy.

A friend of mine dropped by the following day and she had the kompia and she loved the one with stewed pork, served in the gravy itself. Hmmmm…I think I would want to try that myself the next time around.
