So fast…

I have blogged about this stall at this coffee shop

Mei Le roast stuff stall

…many times already like here, for instance.

Well, last Sunday, after the morning service (we could not go for the sunset service the previous night as we went for my sister-in-law’s birthday dinner), my girl said that she would not mind stopping by there for brunch and a little while after that, we would have to be on our way to send her back to her school.

For one thing, other than the fact that their roast stuff is pretty good, the service is very prompt and so very fast. I guess those are the very reasons why this stall is really popular so the place can get rather crowded and to cope with it, they would cut the meat before hand and place it and the cucumber slices in plates…

Covered

…ready to be brought to your table instantly. I must say that I really appreciate how they keep it all in that plastic case like that to ensure that it is clean and safe for consumption.

I also like how they always cut the roast duck into very thin slices…

…as the bird can be quite tough especially if you go for the drumstick, probably the result of all that exercise, swimming in the water. I like their roast duck very much and my girl loves the sauce – I do think it is very nice too though I am not all that sure as to what that is but it comes across like sour plum with a hint of lime or lemon to me.

I also ordered this mixed platter to share…

– their siew yoke (roast pork) and roast chicken. No, I did not want their char siew (barbecued pork) nor their barbecued pork ribs as my girl does not seem all that fond of those and it was also for this same reason that I opted not to have something new that they have – char siew roast chicken but I could not resist their lor nui ( stewed eggs)…

…so I asked for two to share.

All the aforementioned, together with 3 plates of rice…

…and their quite nice complimentary soup, came up to only RM17.00, less than RM6.00 per person. I am sure everyone will agree that it is very cheap, around USD4.00 only for 3 – a truly delightful lunch for just over USD1.00 per person.

We’ve been here many times before and if they maintain their standard, tastewise, and their fast service, you can bet we will keep coming back for more. For one thing, my house is just round the corner, not too far away, so it is very convenient for us to drop by…anytime.

  1. Truly affordable food and tasty too. I see the char siew strips hanging at the stall looking so tempting but Mel doesn’t fancy them so I guess that they are not nice. I love to eat duck meat.but only those tender ones.

    If it is not tough for the almost toothless me, then it is tender enough and the fact that they slice it so thinly is an added bonus, not ike the duck at that Thai fusion place I went to not too long ago. I had to give up trying to eat the meat, and it did not come cheap! That bowl of duck noodles was almost the same price as this whole meal for three – will never ever go again, that’s for sure.

    The char siew is good. I would order sometimes for myself…or buy when I tapao home when she’s at her school. She is not fond of their char-siew sauce marinated BBQ ribs that I like very much too. Will eat, but I think she is not fond of the bit of sweetness in the taste. Everyone has his or her idiosyncrasies, to each his own.

  2. All look good. Yes. I like breast meats when I have duck. Not drumsticks or wings.

    Same here, and if it is roasted, I do not mind chicken breast either.

  3. Everything looks good, i will love it…

    Lots in your island republic and cheap too…and most likely, some are a whole lot nicer, just don’t convert into our miserable ringgit. Sobssss!!!!

  4. the roasted meat sure does look good. I’m a meat lover, but i think you know that by now. No sashimi, raw fishes or any of that sorts for me. πŸ˜› no foei gras too..

    Foie gras, you mean? Good, don’t eat those. I tried – my friend gave me, not cheap…and I honestly did not think it was anything great. Snob appeal, got class mah…if you’re seen eating that.

  5. Food looks good here. We have this similar food in my town, very famous too. Therefore they look very familiar to me.

    Yes, it’s everywhere especially where the town has large Chinese communities. I was in Sg Petani…but I do not think I saw any there – maybe I would find it in one stretch of Chinese shops but that is not in the town centre and they tell me to go to the hawker centres at the housing areas but I did not have a car…so I never saw any there. 😦

  6. With meat and rice, RM4 is indeed reasonable… yeah, $1USD only… hahahaha… where to get such a meal in the states!

    RM4? Where? Less than RM6 per person lah, around USD1.50. Special order for this and that mah! Not just order a plate of char siew rice, or roast chicken rice,…or roast duck rice. In fact, I do not even know how much a plate of those costs as once there, I am always tempted to order this and that and feast on everything. Chinese say, eyes very bad…when see, must want! πŸ˜€

  7. Very often when I go to lunch here, I will order what the restaurants call “Two roast rice”, and choose char siew and siew yoke as the two roasts. The third option is roast duck. You can have all by ordering “Three roast rice”. When I first retired 13 years ago, two roast rice cost about $5. Now it’s at least $9.50.

    I wonder how much that would cost if I order that here – serving for one. These that we had, the duck was actually an individual serving, but the chicken and the roast pork, I ordered a platter for three. RM9.50 seems to be the regular price there, even for things like a plate of fried noodles or fried rice.

  8. Oh my! The hanging roast duck and char siew do look delectable! I would enjoy that lunch very much πŸ™‚

    This place is my favourite in town. What did you have for lunch? Anything nice?

    1. I went for Korean BBQ with my auntie and my brother πŸ˜€ It was good as always πŸ™‚

      Too bad the new Korean place here was not nice. Yet to try the other one but reviews have not been good, that’s why we are taking our sweet time.

    2. I went Korean BBQ with my auntie and my brother πŸ˜€ It was good as always πŸ™‚

      You said that. Connection not good? Not that great here too at the moment. 😦

  9. Love the roast duck the best. Look so tender and succulent!
    Okay, enough of reading and looking at the food photos in your blog for tonight. My stomach is rumbling. Off to find a snack…

    Bon appetit! Enjoy your supper! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
