Surprise, surprise…

After our heavy lunch last Saturday afternoon, we decided to skip dinner and went for the evening sunset service at a church here and after it was over, we dropped by here, thinking that we could have something light for supper.

My girl wanted their bitter gourd bihun (RM4.50)…

…which I have never tried before for the simple reason that they have shredded chicken in theirs, this being a pork-free place, but I’ve had the same elsewhere with pork and it was good. I can’t remember who it was that told me but I did hear that the one here is pretty nice and worth a try. Well, my girl enjoyed it and she particularly liked the clear refreshing soup.

My missus stuck to her favourite from their night menu, their chicken chop (RM9.50)…

…which, in fact, is everyone’s favourite too.

I had their beef noodles once and no, I would not say it is the best in town – just all right but I was in the mood for something soupy that night so I ordered that (RM6.00)…

…and yes, I did like it especially with the very nice chili and ginger dip specially for beef noodles and surprisingly, the price for this has not gone up since that time when I had it way back in 2015!

The moment we arrived at the place, there seemed to be a whole lot of excitement going on and they told me that they had satay

…that night! Now, that sure was a surprise and a very pleasant one at that.

Of course I wasted no time at all in ordering a few to try – they only had beef and chicken…

…no lamb.

Yes, it was really very very nice…

…and the peanut sauce was so good! I loved the beef (RM2.00 a stick) while my girl preferred the chicken (RM1.50 a stick).

Of course, it is much cheaper at the stalls but these were HUGE, anytime two or three times bigger than those and the beef was so juicy and tender – I never bother ordering beef at the stalls anymore as on those previous occasions when I did, it was always hard and dry like it had been cooked a long time ago and had been reheated again and again. Their lamb and chicken were always ok, just the beef. Those here were RM3.00 a stick, their chicken satay, but after these that we had that night, I don’t think I will ever go back for those ever again – the ones here sure win hands down. Unfortunately, these are only available on Saturday nights and maybe, on Sunday mornings too, not every day.

My! My! Our supper that night was far from light in the end but I sure am looking forward to going back there again for more of their most delightful satay. Yum yummm!!!
