My mind’s made up…

My missus and I dropped by here

…the other morning and I saw on the menu at the Malay stall in front – nasi lemak udang (RM12.00) with at least, 4 or 5 prawns lined up by the side and it did look really good. Of course, I wasted no time at all in ordering that but the lady told me that it was not available. “Udang habis!” she said.

But my mind was made up and I would not settle for anything less. In the end, I ordered from this stall there…

…their sizzling hot plate prawn noodles (RM18.00)…

…which was really very nice even though they only gave two not-very-big udang galah (freshwater prawns), cut into halves…

Not big, cut into halves

…so it looked like there were four altogether.

Still, at that size and that price, I don’t think I would ever want to have it again when I can have four plates of my missus’ wa tan hor (RM4.50)…

…which was very nice too, the fried kway teow in egg gravy…

Incidentally, if anyone is thinking of dropping by here for the Ipoh guy’s chee cheong fan, the bad news is that he has called it a day. I don’t know if he is operating his business anywhere else but as far as I know, the stall here is closed…for good!

JIALI CAFE (2.292140, 111.841524) is located among the shops behind Medan Mall, Jalan Wong King Huo, a few doors away to the right of Junction Cafe,  facing the road leading to the Medan Hotel there.
