Closed for the season…

My girl wanted the sizzling beef…

here but they were not open after the night of the Dragon Boat Festival and stayed closed for the rest of the season, all throughout the Gawai Holidays.

Thankfully, they were back in business…


…the following week so of course, we had to drop by for that, one of their signature dishes.

For one thing, the place is air-conditioned and we were there a little before lunch break so there were not that many people, maybe two or three other tables only, apart from us. We have not been there for dinner for quite a while now and in the past, if you did not make a prior booking, they would just ask you to leave and try some place else. Business was that good!

We also ordered another one of their signature dishes, their honey prawn balls…

…and for our vegetable dish, we asked for their bitter gourd with salted eggs but they did not have the latter so we just had it with egg…

…and yes, though it appeared kind of plain and simple, it was really very nice with the much-coveted wok hei fragrance and I loved how they sliced it so very thinly.

We also had yet another signature dish of theirs, their own-made tofu

…which was nice but I think my vote would go for the one we had at that other place that we went to a few days earlier. I liked their tofu better.

The total for the food came up to RM48.50 (around USD11.50) for four dishes for three, not all that cheap but we had prawns and also beef so I guess it was only to be expected that I had to fork out a bit more for our lunch. Of course, what mattered most was the fact that we enjoyed ourselves and yes, we certainly would be back.
