Trying to recall…

I guess there can be no denying that I am no spring chicken anymore and sometimes, I may have the tendency to be a little absent-minded.

I was here not too long ago and I did see something at this stall…

…that I thought I would like to try the next time I drop by but that day, no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t recall what it was until I saw the photograph again – their braised pork rice (RM5.00)…

Of course I wasted no time at all in ordering that and yes, it was very nice – very generous with the pork…

…and there was one whole hard-boiled egg by the side. I certainly would much sooner go for this than what I had here for a ringgit more and no egg.

My missus had their chap fan or mixed rice (RM3.80)…

…and she said she liked what she had as well.

This complimentary soup…

…came with both our orders but it was somewhat bland, nothing to get excited about.

I also ordered a piece of siew yoke/roast pork belly (RM8.00)…

…to share but my missus only had a bit as she was quite happy with what she was having and if I had known that they would be so generous with the meat in my braised pork rice, I wouldn’t have ordered this.

JOYSTAR GARDEN 花悅坊 (2.328329, 111.837701) is located at No. 2A & 2B, Jalan Igan, to the left of the Sungai Merah traffic lights, across the lane from SMK Tiong Hin and a church there.

  1. Is the soup seaweed tofu soup? I think bland is always better than too salty because I can’t drink too salty soup but I am ok with bland soup.

    I think it was salted vegetables but it wasn’t salty at all, dunno why. Yes, at least, there were a lot of ingredients – at many places, they give you a bowl of plain water with a bit of msg added.

  2. The braised pork rice looks good if the pork belly isn’t too fat. I like what your missus had for her chap fan.

    She did not take any meat, it seemed but there was a lot of mince with her tofu and her brinjal.

  3. Yesterday, I was thinking what to eat, chicken, duck, roasted pork belly, char siew, have to make a choice, in the end, choose duck.

    I’m not crazy about the roast duck here, very tough, skin not crispy, not nice – I would much sooner go for something else. Char siew here also not great. Sibu Foochow town, these are Cantonese specialties, I believe.

  4. Very reasonable price!
    Generous amount of meat for such price. Moreover its yummy too.

    Yes, not only did it taste great but I was impressed also by the price, especially with one whole egg some more. These days, it seems most everything is RM6 and above. 😦

  5. Indeed very meatful meal… if only you have known.. but for RM8 for that amount they gave, it is very cheap…

    Yes, normally in restaurants, a meat dish would be at least RM10-12 and above.

  6. Nowadays siew yok is super expensive!
    Just a small portion already cost like RM10!

    It is? I do know that pork prices have been going up and up – chicken is cheaper.

    Now, what happened? How did your comment get into SPAM? 😀 😀 😀

  7. Very big chunks of pork in your braised meat rice.

    And so was the roasted pork. That is a lot for two persons. ^^

    Yes, I was so kind. It looked very nice so I ordered some for the two of us to share and my missus ate two slices, said she was very full already. So pissed off that I ate up all the rest – did not even occur to me that I could have tapao-ed it home. 😀

  8. I must confess that I have never been to Joystar Garden despite being born and bred in Sibu. I certainly had come across people who praise it to the skies but I just could not be bothered to eat there. Well, I think I really have to try out their chicken rice next time when I am back in town given how impressive it looks on your blog!

    They do have some good stuff there but it is not a very nice place, the coffee shop downstairs, I mean – not quite neat and tidy as they sell all sorts of things and they are all over the place. Previous trip, they had durians and this time, pomelo and pumpkin. Their restaurant is upstairs – never tried the food there either.
