Running late…

I was supposed to go here for dinner with some friends on Wednesday night but I was under the weather and in the end, I decided to give it a miss.

However, my missus and I did stop by the following morning way past 10.00 a.m. but before 11.00 and there was nothing in the display cabinet and there wasn’t anybody around. I noted with interest this notice…

Anak Borneo new pricing

…placed strategically on top for all to see. It sure looks like the old price list is no longer applicable.

My missus had this (RM3.50)…

Missus' chap fan

…from the chap fan (mixed rice) selections at the chu char place at the back – some chicken, a serving of green vegetables and cangkuk manis. I did go and have a look but I did not see anything I fancied so I decided to try this stall…

Champion Corner Ah Ching chicken rice stall


I wasn’t really in the mood for chicken but they had pork…

Ah Ching chicken rice menu

…as well and it did take me a moment or two to figure out what this one…

Nasi ayam saleh

…was. I’ve mentioned many times before that here, if you have a plate of some fried stuff such as chicken, sotong (squid), fish fillet or whatever with a whole lot of mayonnaise squeezed all over it, they will call it salad…so this in fact, is salad chicken rice.

I asked for the pork…

Mixed platter

…and an egg plus the chicken liver…

Egg and gizzard

…though they did give me a few pieces of the gizzard as well which I left behind by the side of the plate but I would say that I did enjoy all the rest that was in the platter (RM6.00) and the pickled cucumber underneath was very nice too. Unfortunately, the rice was nothing to shout about so if you are looking for really good (chicken) rice, you’d be better off going elsewhere.

There were quite a lot of people there that morning, a number from the nursing college a stone’s throw away which made me wonder whether they, like us, came in the hope of getting to enjoy the Dayak ethnic delights but since it was not open at the time, they went for something else instead. It was way past 11.00 a.m. when we left…and the first two dishes first made their appearance but of course, we were already full and would not want to eat anymore.

It so happened that I had forgotten my umbrella and the nice people at that chicken rice stall came shouting and running to return it to me. Ain’t that nice of them? They could have just kept it and not bothered at all.

  1. Ha ha…so you just add mayo and it becomes a salad? I’ll have to remember that 😉

    LOL!!! Funny,eh? And I can’t stand mayo, the supermarket ones straight from the bottle or economy-pack plastic bags so I will not bother ordering any of the salad whatever.

  2. Nasi Ayam Saleh???..Is it typo error…instead of salad become saleh or is the name of the owner. The pork with egg you had looks good.

    They just follow the pronunciation and they do not know how to pronounce it accurately – that is the outcome when English goes to the dogs!

  3. Egg and chicken liver? When is supper? LOL! 🙂

    Supper? That was lunch…and then we’ll have dinner…and supper would be later in the night just before going to bed. Here, the feasting never stops.

  4. Hehehe, so cute, having the Chicken Little cartoon character as a mascot for Ah Ching Chicken Rice 😉

    They can get away with anything here, eh? Wouldn’t be able to do anything like this overseas even if it is remotely similar. There is a Doraemon supermarket here too.

  5. Next time you should go there again… food looks good and they are very thoughtful as well. 🙂

    The trouble is I love our Dayak delights so much that unless they are not open or they are late, I would not go and order from the other stalls in that shop. Never mind that it is more expensive, value for money, can derive a lot more pleasure from eating.

  6. Oh yes, anything with mayo is salad 😀 Just like the salad tofu that is available at the tai chow restaurants here. But I do like it.

    Yes, salad tofu is among the most popular…along with salad sotong.

  7. Same here, i will ask for chicken liver too….

    You like? I just asked since I saw they had it – would prefer the ones at the Malay stalls.

  8. I am not a big fan of salad chicken rice and so are my kids. Usually I ask for plain meat with no salad on them.

    I like what you had except the liver. Hehehe.

    I would rather have it plain too – not a fan of the mayo…unless it is their own original recipe, not the cheap ones from the shops.

  9. Hope you are feeling ok now.
    I myself had left several umbrellas outside, din’t bother to go back and take also, LOL!

    You too? I thought I am the forgetful one. LOL!!!
