Doin’ it well…

This (2.293453, 111.836235)…

Mitsu Shabu Shabu Cafe

…started off as a dim sum place with chefs specially brought in from China and yes, we did frequent it quite a lot then. When those guys had left, the local ones took over – there were not that many selections available after that but yes, there were the usual delights and enough choices for a good dim sum breakfast…and sometime later, probably the result of a change in ownership or something, I wouldn’t know, they ventured into shabu shabu/steamboat as well, upstairs on the 1st Floor and we did go for that once.

The last time we dropped by, we had the dim sum and I also tried the kampua noodles with slices of ang chao (the residue from the making of our traditional Foochow red wine) pork and yes, I thought it was very good – I did enjoy it that day.

Then, one afternoon last week, I decided to drop by for lunch – this place is located along Lorong Chew Siik Hiong 1 among the shops in the commercial area behind the medical centre where my mum is presently warded so it was quite convenient for me to walk over. It appeared to me that they have moved the kampua mee stall further in and right now, there is a chicken rice and roast/barbecued meat stall…

The coffee (RM1.50)…

…I had was very nice and I sure would not have any second thoughts in ordering my usual kopi-o-pengΒ (iced black coffee) here again the next time I drop by.

I asked for the roast pork…

…and the roast chicken…

…as well as their steamed chicken…

…all of which were very nice and went very well with the chili dip that came with my order (RM7.00)…

They also gave some fried tofu and pickled cucumber by the side and I loved the plating, right down to the heart-shaped rice. Somehow when the presentation is pleasant to the eye, one seems to enjoy eating one’s order more, what do you think?

The chicken rice was very nice – I would say it can rank among the best in town and I sure would love to drop by here again for more.

  1. Aww.. heart-shaped rice is so lovely! There is an eatery in 1U called Penang Flavours. They serve star-shaped rice so each time we dined there, the boys will definitely ask for it. Clever marketing I must say! πŸ˜€

    Always nice to be different, a delightful change from the mundane usual things that all the others would do.

  2. Roast or steamed chicken, both I like. The chilli dip plays an important part in chicken rice too. Ermmm…heart shaped chicken rice, 1st time seeing it.

    My first time too and I was somewhat amused. Hehehehehe!!!!

  3. Roasted or steamed, I will prefer roasted to steamed… The roasted pork, yummy…

    Like my girl…and I guess I’m more inclined that way too. Just ordered to give it a try.

  4. The chicken and roast pork look good. Certainly nice to be different, never seen a plate of heart-shaped chicken rice! And free fried tofu? Not in KL.

    The only one in town, and the pickled cucumber too. Most places here, they’d just give you a few cucumber slices and that would be it.

  5. Wahhh..indeed a very fulfilling meal for RM7… must go again and again if I were you. πŸ™‚ Somemore, presentation is also very properly done..

    I would have to, my mum is still at the medical centre, not about to be discharged yet and it’s very convenient to just walk here and eat.

  6. Heart-shaped rice, very unique, see liao appetite also become better =)

    Let’s just say I was amused when it was served…and I couldn’t help smiling. πŸ˜€

  7. I would be very happy with that plate of chicken rice. More sio bak, please πŸ™‚

    Same here. The four measly pieces left me craving for more. Next time, I would just order the rice and the sio bak.
