A little bit different…

That day, my girl wanted to drop by here again for lunch and she wanted the exact same things that we had the last time around. Sighhhh!!! I don’t mind actually as we enjoyed the food that we had then but if we keep going for the same things, I would not have anything new to blog about.

I have had the pretty good kueh chap…

…at that same shop before but I never noticed that they had this…

Mixed kueh chap platter

– a mixed platter of the meat, intestines, egg, tofu puffs and so on, the chap without the kueh (RM8.00, serving for two). I did not think it was all that exceptional though – minus the soup, it was just so-so but the very nice sambal dip saved the day and at least, I could enjoy the sauce with my rice as we did not order anything with any kind of gravy.

We had the kiam sor hu phee, the salty crusty/crispy fish fillet…

…again which was a little bit different from the last time. It tasted nicer, just that the batter was a tad too crusty or hard for my old gums – my girl and the mum did not complain so I guess the problem was with me. I noticed that my girl enjoyed the fried onions very much – that would be something one would usually find in burgers and stuff, right?

Instead of the cangkuk manis fried with egg that we had the last time, I ordered the midin (wild jungle fern)…

They do not have the belacan (dried prawn paste) version here and I did not want it with our traditional Foochow red wine so I asked for it ching chao, fried plain with garlic and yes, it was very nice.

We had the same soup again, the chao chai (preserved vegetables) with prawns and I don’t know why each of the crustaceans’ heads had the much coveted kor, the thick and very tasty orange stuff…

Lovely kor in the prawn's head

…inside whereas the ones that I buy from the market never seem to have much of it. Tsk! Tsk!

Yes, the soup…

…was good and we sure enjoyed our lunch again this time around.

All in all, I paid RM38.60, RM3.60 for 3 plates of rice so it was only RM35.00 for the food alone and we had prawns! I must say that was very reasonable, very cheap. Personally, I would prefer eating such things for dinner though but I don’t think this place is open at night.
