Weekend special…

Now that school has reopened, it is back to the usual routine and for lunch on Saturdays, we would go for something that is, at least, a little special from our usual as I do think my girl would deserve a little treat that would be a welcome break from what she would have for her meals at her school in the jungle.

We would be around the vicinity of this restaurant…

Nice House Restaurant

…which we quite like but parking around there can be such a pain. However, we were in luck that day and I was able to grab a space to leave the car. Having done all that we had to do at places around there, we headed to the restaurant for a bite to eat.

A nice and handsome young boy, rather thin though, looking like he was one of the kitchen staff there, came and took our orders – on our previous visits, it would either be the lady boss or one of the ladies there. He could only speak Mandarin but we did manage quite well and he dutifully wrote down everything we could/would not eat on the order chit to inform the staff in the kitchen – no soy sauce and the like, no wheat flour and so on.

They had lajong so we wanted that, steamed (RM29.00)…

…and it looked like they followed our wishes to the letter – no light soy sauce, nothing so it looked rather plain other than the strips of ginger and the garnishing on top…

That is not to say it was not nice though – the fish was fresh and tasty and yes, we enjoyed it very much. It’s a little cheaper than here and though the fish was obviously smaller, on the whole, it sure looked like a bigger piece. Anyway, the difference is minimal, just a few ringgit and since it is very nicely done at both places, we would not mind having that again should we drop by any of the two in future.

We wanted something different for a change and asked for the butter kai lan (RM12.00)…

I thought that was quite expensive for a vegetable dish but then again, butter does not come cheap and most importantly, it was very nice.

We had had their honey prawn balls (RM12.00)…

…quite often before and having been assured by the young boy that they would not coat it in wheat flour and deep fry before cooking and adding the sauce, we decided we would want to have that again and yes, we loved that!

So there you have it – our lunch last Saturday, RM53.00 for the dishes and with the rice and drinks for three, the total came up to a  little over RM60.00 but that was mainly because of the fish that we had. One thing’s for sure, we certainly would be back…if we can find a place to park the car, that is.
