Home again…

My friend, Annie and her twins were home for the school holidays and also for the Ching Ming Festival. I did get to see them for a while as soon as they arrived when they stopped here for the kampua noodles but they were caught up with a lot of family matters and I did not get to see them till breakfast on Tuesday morning here

My daughter had their egg and avocado sandwich (RM8.80)…

that I had before once and I thought it was very good. My daughter enjoyed it too…

…and she also thought the drink that she had was good – the soya bean milk with cendol and gula Melaka (RM3.80)…

My missus said that her soup version of the Foochow-style noodles (RM7.80)…

…were nice but she was of the opinion that what she had before on our previous visits, the fried version of the Foochow-style noodles with gravy/sauce, was better.

I had their Big Breakfast (RM11.80)…

…which I thought was not all that big. The pancakes were good, as always…

…and the sausages and baked beans were like sausages and baked beans, no more no less. I did not like their scrambled eggs though – a far cry from what I would dish out myself and if ever I were desperate enough to order this again, I would ask for an omelette or fried eggs, sunny side up instead.

Annie and her family arrived late but it was no matter as we had all the time in the world and everyone promptly placed their orders and had their fill. I did not manage to photograph what they had, just this bowl of  kampua noodles with minced meat (RM3.80)…

…which they said was very good. I was pretty sure that was true as I could detect the pleasant fragrance of the lard used in tossing the noodles – I think I would order this the next time I drop by here to give it a try myself.

They must have enjoyed all that they had very much for Annie asked me their opening hours and whether they would be open at night. Probably she was hoping to drop by again before she went back to KL. Well, if anyone is interested, I think their opening hours are from 8.00 a.m./8.30 a.m. till 2.30 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.

Gosh!!! And look at what the nice lady brought me all the way from KL…

From Annie

…thank you so very very much! Yaaaaa!!! Happy days are here again! I love her mother-in-law’s own-made wine-infused lap cheong (Chinese sausages) a lot!!! She gave me some before and we had just finished eating all of the many we got from her then. After that, my missus got a packet from the shops and I would say that those paled miserably in comparison. Other than that, Melissa was indeed so very delighted upon receiving the two packs of Ferrero Rocher’s Easter bunny and eggs that Annie gave to her.

We certainly had a great time that morning – great food, great company, who could ask for more?

  1. Interesting combo with the egg and avocado. I can’t say that I’ve ever had the before. Oh, that looks like a nice sized package of sausage.

    Do you eat sausage often? In a few weeks, I’ll be making homemade sausage again, I’m looking forward to that.

    I don’t buy them – Melissa’s not a fan of sausages, not the frozen ones we get at the supermarkets here so I will only eat when it comes with the dish I order e.g. in an American breakfast platter or mixed grill. Egg and avocado with lettuce, tomato, the whole works in salad is great.

  2. i love pairings of avocado with almost anything … avocado with egg is great, and so is avocado with eel, avocado with pizzas, avocado with salads, etc 😀

    I love avocado too but it’s so expensive here. Around RM10 each. Once in a while, we get cheaper ones, around RM6.00 each. I could get a whole lot of bananas with that kind of money. 😦

  3. Wow! That lap cheong must taste heavenly when cook. yum yum.

    Now we on the way to Cafe-Cafe! 😉

    Hahahaha!!! Tell them you saw in my blog, tak tahan… Bon appetit!!!

  4. Avocado is really yummy! Goes very well with eggs. I would have been disappointed with the “big” breakfast too. Not big enough by my standards 🙂 Annie’s mum-in-law makes her own wine infused lap cheong? Wow, I am impressed. I haven’t seen those type of lap cheong on the shelves before.

    I am not sure if they make those for sale. If they do, you would be able to get them here – their family business…
    Raw Meat
    Hero Supermarket (Jalan Wan Kadir 3), 60000 Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur

    1. Yes, they sell it at TTDI market whole year round. Not make by my mil but they sent their pork meat for someone to do.

      Ahhhh!!!! Now everybody knows where to get them. Very nice. Not like the ones my missus bought from the shop – so dry, so wrinkled, so hard…even to slice…and of course, no wine fragrance. 😦

  5. haha, 早餐 Breakfast!! interesting name of the restaurant!! so they only open in the morning and serve breakfast?? hehehe!! :p

    They used to, breakfast all-day from 7 in the morning till 5 but I guess business was not so good at certain hours so they have changed the opening hours but retained the name.

  6. Happy man. Everyone pampered you with lots of goodies. Am a noodle lover, so definitely go for Foochow fried noodles & kampua. Soya bean milk with cendol looks great too. Wow, Annie’s MIL made those lap cheong, eh. Home-made is always the best of the best. Yum!!!

    Happy, very very happy. See Annie’s comment – can buy in KL anytime of year.

  7. Thanks for the breakfast treat, it should be on me.
    I enjoy the food there, nice ambience and love the interior design. Only one thing I want to complain, it is too dark inside for breakfast, more suitable for fine dining dinner. Hahahah
    Wanted to bring my mum, but we always spoilt by breakfast choice in town, so we didn’t go back again. I hope they continue with the breakfast concept instead of change to another type.
    Nice and glad to catch up with you, Melissa and Lucy again.

    Yes, I always sit outside, non-aircon or by the glass door so better light for nicer photos. That day, my missus and Melissa went in first, always sit at the wrong places and I always ask them to move but that day, since they already asked the people to join the tables for our big group, I just sat where we were. 😦 Hope to see you all again soon…either here or who knows, maybe in KL? 😉

  8. Great food, Great company and Great Gifts too!! Yes, all of them are Great! The avocado sandwich is something to shout about.. healthy too..

    When I had it, I did not expect it to be so nice. It was…and I love it. Yes, God is Great! 🙂

  9. This caught my eyes! Soya milk with chendol and gula Melaka is unique and sounds nice. I have never tried Avocado sandwich but this fruit is so costly and has funny taste.

    I would agree with the expensive bit but I love the lemak lemak taste – something like our dabai. Great for salads.

  10. Life is just that simple and easy…food and who do you company with then that’s enough, right?

    That’s right. Why make it so complicated and end up feeling miserable? Enjoy life, live it!

  11. Avocado and egg is such a lovely combination.

    Homemade lapcheong are good. They go easy with the fatty bits and of course less sugar too.

    Yes, they do seem less sweet as the usual ones form the shops.

  12. Avocado! LOVE Avocado! Yum! Love the entrance of the cafe, too! Neat!

    That’s an old school place – glad they’re restored and preserved it the way it was. Most have been demolished and replaced with modern structures – they’re not even half as nice.
