Every Sunday…

This is becoming a routine for us every Sunday, stopping by here for breakfast after our morning service at the church close by.

That Sunday over a week ago, my girl wanted the thosai bawang (onion)…

Sri Pelita thosai bawang 1

…that I tried not too long ago. She seems to have a special liking for Bombay onions…

…so I would see her picking it out in my fried luncheon meat with egg or fried corned beef with potatoes and eating it. She loves onion rings a lot but of course, she can’t eat those now as they are coated in batter, not gluten free.

As always, Guna, the very nice and generous boss, went out of his way to pamper us. There was this dhal dip…

…to go with the thosai and this fish curry gravy as well…

…and as if those were not enough, there were these chutney and sambal nasi lemak

No, that was not all! He also treated to his very lovely sambal petai udang (stink beans with prawns)…

…which, of course, we enjoyed to the max!

The mum had their mee goreng

…which she enjoyed very much – according to her, it was nicer than their mee mamak that she would order sometimes when we came here for something to eat.

I decided to try his bihun goreng Singapura (Singapore fried rice vermicelli)…

…which was nice, very spicy upon special request and I asked for one fried egg…

Sri Pelita telur mata kerbau

…to go with it. It was pretty obvious that he made sure it was done exactly the way I would like it!

You will never guess how much I had to fork out for all these, inclusive of drinks – only RM15.00, believe it or not! Seeing how my girl can’t have much else owing to her gluten intolerance and loves the thosai here, you can be sure that we will be back here every Sunday again…and again…and again.

  1. Yeah, exactly the way I like how my egg was fried too. Oh my, only RM15 for all. Sambal petaling udang is to die for.

    The traditional old-school way. Not a fan of how they do it, the ang moh way, like in the hotels. 😉

    1. Oppsss!!!!…typo error…should be “sambal petai udang” ….hahaha, how come I type petaling…

      😀 😀 😀 Slip of the fingers, not the thought of mind!

  2. If I were to eat the sambal udang petai, I will only eat the udang but not the petai as I don’t eat petai…

    Seems that you do not eat all the healthy stuff – no petai, no bitter gourd. I wonder what else.

  3. OooooO! I need to find a vegan thosai bawang recipe ASAP!!!!

    It’s vegan all right…I think, eat with dhal curry dip, very very nice.

  4. I only liked fried Bombay onion or the way they coated and deep fried it. Other than that I hardly use or take Bombay onion. Lol.

    The Singapura fried mihun looked good. I would enjoy that.

    Time really flies. Soon the kids would be back to school. Just last weekend I shopped for the kids’ uniforms, shoes and socks. Haha. Get them all ready.

    Time flies, already middle of December. Sighhhhh!!!!!

    The bihun was all right but lots of nice things there, dunno if I’ll go for that again. Oh? You need Bombay onions for certain dishes, standard procedure, like in stews, beef soup for instance. Usually, we do not eat it though when cooked whole, sliced, ok.

  5. That’s a scrumptious lunch! I would return again and again too for such good food at affordable prices.

    A bit shy because the friendly and generous boss keeps giving me really special prices. I wouldn’t mind paying the actual prices as the food here is very good, value for money and not expensive.

  6. OOoohhh.. I love each and every food featured here. The sambal petai udang itself will cost us nothing less than RM15 over here. Guna is a very generous person. May he be blessed abundantly.

    May he be blessed with very good business every day and all good things that are good. I do believe that what goes around comes around.
