Out of the blue…

An acquaintance of mine got in touch with me via my inbox on Facebook and asked me if we could meet and go out some place. I was still a little under the weather so I suggested going out for breakfast in the morning instead of at night as I would like to rest early. I did not know him all that well actually – we met sometime ago and it was more of a hello, how are you doing, goodbye thing…and then I did not get to see him for a long time until quite recently and like before, we did not really get the opportunity to talk much but we’ve kept in touch all this while via Facebook so let’s just say we’re not exactly total strangers.

I wanted to try the breakfast menu here but it Β was closed. I checked their Facebook page and it looks like they only serve breakfast on Saturday mornings, not on other days. In the end, we ended up here instead…

Drinks

…and my friend had the lor mee (RM5.90)…

LM

He said it was nice but if it’s lor mee, I would expect the gravy to be thicker and more gooey, with beaten egg in it and I did not get to see those strands of kangkong either, blanched. It certainly appeared to be more or less like the kueh chap that I had on a previous visit – the ingredients might differ but the gravy/soup sure looked the same to me.

They did not have mee sua that morning so I had the meatballs kway teow soup (RM5.90) instead…

MBKTS

I could not recall ever having seen that on their menu before so I thought I would just give it a try. It was nice – I loved the clear soup and the minced meatballs…though I would not say I was all that fond of the frozen meatballs because of their smell/taste (but my daughter loves those) though they weren’t too bad when eaten in their own-made chili dip provided. Actually, I wouldn’t mind another minced meatball in place of the five frozen ones. I think I’d request for that should I be having that again in future.

My friend said he was very full already after the mee he had and asked me not to order anymore but I simply couldn’t let him leave without trying this (RM9.00)…

CLC1

…and true enough, that certainly took his breath away! He loved it very very much…

CLC2

…and I could see that he was enjoying it to the max (unlike when he was struggling through his bowl of noodles).

Well, it was a nice outing and we had a great time chit-chatting and getting to know each other better. Well, I guess everyone will agree with me that time can never be better spent than with friends…and with good food as well. Hopefully, we can do it again sometime…

  1. The kueh teow looks thick in terms of width? Something like keuh chap ones?

    That’s our Sibu kway teow for you, bigger, thicker, coarse…not as nice as hor fun. The kueh chap here’s the same thing except it is in pieces, not cut into regular strips like kway teow.

  2. That is indeed a nice breakfast. I am salvating over that chocolate cake.

    So when is our next breakfast date? πŸ˜‰

    Anytime. I’m free weekdays… πŸ˜‰

  3. That’s a nice bowl of good looking kway teow soup. Slurpppp!!!!!!….As I am not a sweet tooth person, can skip the chocolate lava cake.

    Then it’s best you go elsewhere…cheaper and nicer. The sweet desserts are the main attraction here!

  4. Do you think the kitchen staff could have messed up your friend’s order? Put the wrong gravy, that can happen. I remember years ago when an order of ayam masak merah came to the table without the “merah”. It was just fried chicken which I believe was served too soon before the chef could mix it in the sauce 😦 Ah…that chocolate lave cake is making me twitch!

    Nope! If I’m not wrong, when you order lor mee, beef noodles or kueh chap here, the noodles and the condiments may differ but the soup/gravy comes from the one and the same pot…which should not be the case. Each of these dishes has a different kind of gravy/soup with its own unique taste. Best to go elsewhere if it is one of these that you want. I will only come here for the desserts and a few other items on their menu like the pork belly kompia, for instance.

  5. you are such a friendly man. So nice to meet up with friends, get to know each other and enjoying food together.

    What is life without friends? πŸ˜‰

  6. why the other glass of lemon drink the lemon all on top so messy like that. Guess they need to work on their presentation

    Yummy choc lava cake…slurps

    That’s Mandarin orange lemon tea, iced. Nice presentation, actually…just that I did not bother to take a nice pic of it – peeled Mandarin orange, placed nicely on top…

  7. When I was gathering with friends, I was just busy chit-chatting, forgot to enjoy the food pulak…..=.=!!!

    Gosh!!! When with friends, we always talk about… the food!

  8. We just tried their lava cake over the weekend. It was heavenly!

    Didn’t manage to catch up with you since I was not feeling well and HB was busy taking care the in-house patient. Next time ya!

    Ya, the lava cake’s good. I’m very sick too…or I was a whole week after the Chinese New Year weekend. Ok now, but still feeling weak and get tired easily. Old man, no longer like what I used to be. There’ll be other times, I am sure.

    1. The flu has been hitting a lot of people lately!

      Yeah, the chocolate lava cake is pretty amazing! I wanted her to try this over the creme brulee and we’re glad we did!

      Catch you next time when you’re not sick! πŸ™‚

      You had the creme brulee too? Theirs is pretty good too.

      1. Nope, we decided to go for one only and went for the chocolate lava cake! It’s really good, it was the right choice! πŸ˜€

        Yup, it was. Not many can do it so well and best shared – too sweet for one to handle.

  9. I wanted to try the beef rendang kampua but since she doesn’t eat beef, I went for the honey chicken wings instead. πŸ™‚

    I can’t remember whether I’ve tried it before but it was alright. I remember you giving the thumbs down to the beef rendang though.

    The molten lava cake is better than anything I ever had in KL! They served it just at the right time and the molten chocolate just came flowing out of the cake.

    Yup! I had that in Auckland and it was a disaster – they really do it so well here. The kampua? My favourite is the black pepper beef. I hear chicken’s good too.
