Whole lot better…

We went back to this place for lunch that day and I had the kopi-o-peng kao kao kao

– iced coffee, black and extra strong and it came out looking quite like what we would usually get here and was nicer than when I had it before.

We ordered their fried bitter gourd with salted egg (RM10.00)…

…and yes, we loved it. There was this very strong wok hei fragrance and the sprinkling of the fried bits of garlic and shallots on top sure made it taste a lot nicer.

I wanted to order three but my girl asked for four of their chicken satay (RM12.00)…

…and true enough, those sticks were so huge that one would be more than enough for each person, no prize for guessing who had to finish off the last stick. Hehehehehe!!!!

The steamed lajong that we had here before was very nice so we asked for that again (RM32.00)…

…and yes, it was really good, definitely a whole lot better than what we were served at that very expensive dinner here by a mile and also a cut above the tapah that we had here (RM35.00) that we did not quite enjoy.

When I went to settle the bill, the lady asked if the coffee was all right and of course, I told her it was good and asked if they got the coffee powder from that place two doors away and she said no, they got theirs from here too – no wonder it was nice!

We sure enjoyed the lunch and yes, we definitely would want to come back again…if only it is easier to find a parking space around that part of town.

  1. Wow! The flesh of the steamed lajong is so thick. Must be very delicious! The satay looks tasty too. Lucky you to eat two sticks! 😉

    All good here, inexpensive too but it has a coffee shop setting not an air-conditioned restaurant. If only it is easier to find parking, I certainly would drop by more often.

    Oopssss!!! Duplicate comment. Hehehehehe!!!!

  3. I have never tried chicken satay, but I have had chicken chow mein, barbecue chicken legs and wings, and chicken fried rice. And I love salads. 🙂

    You may be able to get it at Malaysian or Indonesian restaurants there, satay. I’m sure there is one or two around? We do get lots of stalls selling barbecued chicken, whole, thigh or wings, all over town but chicken fried rice and chow mien aren’t really the thing here, usually it’s pork.

  4. The foods look stonking good. Too bad about the parking.

    Perennial problem here at the town centre. That is why I prefer places in the suburbs and outskirts. Parking is easy and free.

  5. Indeed nice lunch, great choice of food. Chicken satay looks so juicy & so is the huge slab of fish. Yummy, yummy….

    Yes, all good. Ain’t that bad for my girl, still lots of things that she can eat and enjoy.

  6. Eyeing the steamed fish, very fleshy… the satay looks meaty enough, yes, one stick will be good for each since there are other dishes as well…

    All good here, sure will take you to this particular place to enjoy all their nice dishes…IF you come.

  7. The satay is huge, but I think I can manage two, too.

    Two is only around four or five sticks, the regular size – not that much. I can easily handle 10 or more of those. Hehehehehehe!!!

  8. Satay, i like, i like…

    You have nice ones in Singapore, that’s for sure. I used to enjoy those at The Satay Club.

  9. Ohhh I miss those bitter gourds, they are so expensive here. If its in season it costs $14.00 per kilo and if its out of season it will cost an arm and leg 🙂

    Oh me oh my!!! Thankfully, it is quite cheap here. They say it has health benefits, great for lowering high blood pressure – this and all other bitter vegetables that we have here.
