Fourth time around…

Actually, my girl wanted to drop by here that day for their sizzling beef on a hot plate that she likes a lot but I told her that I had a feeling that there would be a bit of tomato sauce in the gravy and maybe some soy sauce too, hence the dark tone so it would be best that we gave that a miss.

In the end, we ended up here, our fourth time so far and yes, the very nice boss who is also the chef/cook, was there to take our orders and as always, he was ever ready to see to all our needs and wants.

If anyone is staying at this hotel in the town centre…

…he or she can walk at an angle of 45° upon coming out of the entrance and will reach this small restaurant in a couple of minutes.

My girl wanted the kian sor hu, literally translated as salty crusty fish…

…which was to everyone’s liking.

We also had what we ordered before on our previous visits and enjoyed very much and that included the sweet potato leaves, ching chao (fried plain)

…with a sprinkling of fried finely-chopped garlic on top.

We loved his homemade tofu

…which we would place among the best in town and we had that again and as for the salted fish pork belly minus the soy sauce that we had last time, we asked for dried chili to be added this time…

…and we liked that too.

We had four dishes that day – on our previous visits, we had three with one soup, one meat and a veg and the total was around RM30.00. For our two meat and two vegetable dishes (including the tofu), the total came up to RM39.00. I guess that’s pretty reasonable and considering that we did like what was served each time we dropped by here, we certainly would not mind coming back again.

  1. The breaded fish looks very tasty, Arthur! I am having barbecue chicken wings for supper tonight with beets and mashed potatoes. 🙂

    I’ve had beets when I was in New Zealand, don’t think we can get that here.

  2. All the dishes certainly suits me. They look sort of like homecooked food. Makes one feel so homely. As for the price, I think it is quite reasonable too.

    I’m sure you will like the food here, Chinese. I find that for an air-conditioned restaurant kind of place, the prices are generally lower than many similar places elsewhere these days.

  3. All the foods suits me….

    How many day holiday in East Malaysia for Deepavali? Here only 1 day…

    Be thankful. No public holiday in Sarawak, not even one day. I guess there are too few Indians here though there are quite a lot in Kuching.

  4. I used to enjoy tofu (especially house made) a lot, but I can’t eat it anymore. I miss it as a vegetarian option.

    Oh? You’re allergic to soya beans or something? I’ve a friend who’s like that, can’t even drink soya bean milk and there are a lot of things he can’t eat.

  5. I would enjoy all those dishes and at around RM30 for all that, very affordable indeed!

    Yes, it was ok. I had nasi campur at an Indian shop here, RM14.50…and that’s for one person. This works out to RM13 per head only…and everything is freshly cooked, hot from the wok.

  6. “salty crusty fish” sounds most inviting to me. Picture is great.

    Not difficult to cook. Just coat fish fillet with tapioca flour and deep fry first. Then fry all the fragrant ingredients in oil and add the fish and toss. I prefer pork or prawns as here, in the Chinese restaurants, they use the cheap frozen fish fillet, Dory. Not really into that.

  7. very balanced meal, with all the protein and wholesome fibre that you’d need – especially with all those veggies. this will inspire me to have a healthier lunch tomorrow 😀

    I always make sure I get enough roughage, otherwise I will feast on some fruits after a meal of mostly meat.

  8. The dishes you had, goes well with the boys except the vege. They dont take leafy veges. Notti boys they are. I think that the price is reasonable too for what you all had.

    Spank! Spank! I hated any kind of vegetable when I was a kid so my mum would put it all in my plate beside the rice…and the rotan by her side. End of story. Hehehehehe!!!!
