Shining star…

We’ve been here…

Joystar Garden

…before, not once but twice, at least and we were back there again that day to check out their Chinese chap fan (mixed rice).

My missus had that (RM3.80)…

Joystar Garden chap fan

– one meat and two vegetables and that came with a complimentary tofu and Chinese cabbage soup…

Complimentary soup

We would always ask for half the usual amount of rice and it is quite obvious in the above photograph that she did that but no, you do not get a discount…unfortunately. I can’t remember exactly now but the other option would be two meat and one vegetable for RM4.00 something and then there were things in Mandarin, one with 50 sen at the end and the other, RM1.00. Perhaps, if you want more, those would be what you would have to pay – 50 sen for an extra veg and RM1.00 for the meat.

My missus liked what she picked and I did try the chicken but I would not say I was all that thrilled by it.

I saw this…

Pumpkin cake 1

…and I asked the guy what it was and he replied, “Keladi!” (yam) but I was quite sure it was kim kua/pu koi (pumpkin cake)…

Pumpkin cake 2

No worries! No disgusting teeth bites there! I tore a piece apart to take that photograph of what it looked like inside. For RM2.00 you get 3 pieces but those were very big, double the size of the or koi (yam cake) here and that would make it a little cheaper than the latter, 5 for RM2.00). As for the taste, I thought they were very good – I could detect the taste of the udang kering (dried prawns) in it but of course, the ones my missus makes at home would be a whole lot nicer. Hehehehehe!!!!

No, I did not have the chap fan because I saw that they had this (RM4.80)…

Joystar Garden stewed pork rice 1

– stewed pork rice and of course, I wanted that instead. I did say in this post that I would prefer this with rice, not noodles and yes, I enjoyed that very much…plus it is 20 sen cheaper than what I had to fork out for the noodles…and they gave one whole egg…

…here and only half at that other place alongside the noodles.

I would say that was a nice brunch and yes, we sure would not mind dropping by again should we happen to be passing that way. If you have no idea where this is, you can click the link here for that – I did give the location and directions at the end of that post on this place.
