Take me to the king…

On our last visit here, I noticed that they have what they call laksa king on their menu and I was keen on going back there to try to see what it is all about…and when my girl said she would like to go for their curry beef with (chicken) rice (RM6.00)…

…again there, I happily agreed.

Of course I wanted the laksa king (RM7.50)…

…and it turned out to be just a very much larger serving of the usual so I got more than those standard three little prawns…

…and there did seem to be a lot more of the shredded chicken as well.

It so happened that we were here a day earlier for their Sarawak laksa

…and we thought that one tastes a lot nicer and beats the one here (and everywhere else) hands down, more authentic, more like some of the nice ones one can get in Kuching. However, I had their large serving too once, RM7.00 only, but I counted four prawns, just as tiny as the ones here and I found both of them a little bit too much for me so it was quite a struggle trying to finish the whole bowl. I would just stick to the regular/small from now on.

I noticed two more new dishes…

…on their menu here, both vegetables and available only at night or maybe they were not entirely new, just that I did not notice them before.

I think they are not all that strict about their day or night menus and the day & night one as my missus ordered their fried rice with curry (RM8.00)…

…with one fried egg on top from their night menu and she did get what she wanted, no problem whatsoever. I guess the relatively higher price is all right as it came with one huge chicken drumstick…

…and my missus enjoyed the fried rice very much too.
