Two more weeks to go…

I mentioned in my previous post that my niece, the one working in Singapore, came home for the long Easter weekend to celebrate her father’s birthday even though the actual date would be sometime next week, two weeks to go, more or less. Well, they’re not getting another long weekend this week as the special public holiday on Monday, 24th instant, is only for Malaysia and the following weekend, another long one for Labour Day, would be past the father’s birthday already.

Initially, they wanted to go here for dinner but it was closed so they decided on this place instead. I have not been here since November last year after the dinner we had there with the somewhat most disappointing steamed lajong and the rather expensive bill.

They brought a cake…

Birthday cake from WeLove

…from this bakery, the Japanese baked cotton cheese cake that I do like quite a lot but I have stopped buying as it is getting a bit too expensive and anyway, it is not gluten-free. My niece did not get one from Marcus, our favourite as she heard that he was not well and was not sure if he is back in the game already or not. He was admitted into the same medical centre as my mum that time when she was there, some problem with his legs, I heard.

Of course my girl could not get to eat the cake nor the longevity noodles (mee sua)…

…but never mind! She could enjoy the midin (wild jungle fern) fried with belacan (dried prawn paste)…

…that was very nicely done that night, quite spicy, and the cangkuk manis fried with egg…

I quite liked the venison curry…

My brother-in-law insisted on ordering the giant freshwater prawns (udang galah)…

…and of course, we had those…

…as it was his birthday and at the astronomical prices these days, we hardly ever buy our own from the market to cook and enjoy at home.

The bill came up to RM193.30, around RM70 for that plate of crustaceans, inclusive of rice and drinks, and of course, since we were here, I would not miss the opportunity to order and enjoy their ngor bee th’ng

…which was, as always, very cold and refreshing.

TUNG SENG RESTAURANT (2.30367,111.849346) is located along Jalan Pahlawan, not facing the main road, behind the block of shops where Secret Recipe is and further in along that same row where this place is.
