We were here…

…a number of times before but it was the first time for my girl.

This was on Chinese New Year’s Eve. After spending the morning with my mum, we went home to rest a while and then, do all the preparations necessary and go over to my mum’s house that same evening, bringing the ingredients and everything else needed for our steamboat dinner together.

We decided to stop by here on the way for lunch so my girl could give it a try but the nasi campur (mixed rice) selections were running out so they decided to go à la carte and order from their menu instead.

My missus had their seafood kway teow

…which was very good, very very spicy even though she did not ask for it, but I thought it could have been a bit more substantial. I did check the price but somehow or other, I can’t seem to remember it right now.

Well, I definitely can remember only too well how much this, that my girl had that day, cost – a whooping RM13.00…

I met some old friends of mine from the office, way back in those days before I retired, on one of our previous visits and the ladies were having their corned beef fried rice…

…which they praised to the skies and said that they kept coming back for more.

I did try a bit of the rice and thought it was all right, nothing sensational and the chicken, their ayam bakar, was good too but at that price, I would much sooner go for something else.

I saw they had liver…


…for their nasi campur and of course, I just could not resist it.

I also had their yam and yam shoots, masak lemak

…that I had never tried before and yes, I loved it very much. I sure would have no second thought about going for it the next time I see it among the choices available.

Their daging masak hitam (black-cooked beef)…

…was nice but I would not say it is the best I’ve had in town.

I guess my servings were XXL, a whole lot more than the regular servings one would get…

…so I would consider the overall total of RM6.30 that I had to fork out for everything, inclusive of rice, quite reasonable actually…and I would give them a few bonus points for using those lovely old school plates, not the horrendously-colourful plastic ones elsewhere that I simply abhor.
