These eyes…

These eyes of mine are really bad. I was watching a grand Malay wedding in Singapore on AFC (the Asian Food Channel) and saw all the gorgeous food they were cooking and serving at the banquet…and everyone stuffing their faces with it – the beef bryani looked so good and that triggered a craving in me for that so I simply had to go and have some bryani rice…

…myself for lunch here.

They had lamb shank curry…

…that day and the Β boss insisted that I tried and yes, it was very nice. No, it was not fall-off-the-bone tender but it was all right, tender enough for me and there was a whole lot of meat plus I so enjoyed the tendons too, definitely a lot nicer than what we had here.

I also asked for their awesome sambal terung

…our favourite in town, and the total for all that came up to RM12.50.

My missus also had the sambal terung but she did not want the bryani rice and had plain rice instead and she asked for the Indian-style fish curry…

…which was very nice too. The total for Β hers was RM7.50 and when I went to pay, the boss just collected RM20.00 from me. Gee!!! Isn’t he nice? He waived the charges for the drinks that we had!

And that’s not all! He also let me try these…

Sri Pelita egg and toast

..on the house – the telur meleleh (drooling egg)…or what I saw somebody on Facebook calling it telur bergoyang (wobbly egg) on toasted bun and another one with peanut butter…

He told me that these would be available at his shop now at RM2.00 each and personally, I liked the latter – they were very generous with the peanut butter and the bun was more well-toasted, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Β I guess we can always request for that when placing our order for any of these buns.

Oh dear!!! I was so very full that I could hardly walk out of the place that day!

  1. I love both, wobbly egg on toasted bun and the one with peanut butter. Indeed they are generous with the peanut butter. Oh yes, the sambal terung is to my liking too.

    Yes, most coffee shops here will just apply a thin layer of the peanut butter, sometimes one can hardly taste it!

  2. Watching food videos or photos are the worst! It doesn’t matter if I’ve just eaten – seeing pics of delicious food still makes me hungry.

    LOL!!! I guess I am not alone. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. The last couple of days I have been eating really simple…just sticky rice with salsa in a wrap. They were so good!

    I love sticky rice, eaten in so many ways here but they say it is way too starchy, not all that healthy…but of course, in the words of Rhett Butler, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!” πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. Don’t think i ever came across generous spreading of peanut butter, usually a bit only…

    Yes, here too. That was why the one here impressed me very much. Loved it!

  5. Same with me. What ever I watch over the food channel, I would crave for them. Haha. Bad eyes! But I do love Malay food. ^^

    At least you are not fat like me. I really must not watch those programmes on tv. πŸ˜€

  6. Ooohhhh…I have naughty eyes too! hee..hee.. If I see something delicious, I want! We covet with our eyes and that’s what I have been doing, coveting all sorts of food. Your briyani and lamb shank curry has got me coveting again πŸ˜€

    See no evil! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  7. heheh at first i thought you really meant your eyes were bad. my eyes lead me to evil paths too πŸ˜€

    Hmmmm…I shall not ask you to elaborate. Muahahahahaha!!!!

  8. Ohhh look at those lamb shank curry, I dont like them fall of the bone as well just right tenderness and not too soft

    Ok with me too, something to chew and savour and still feel like one is enjoying meat.
