It’s nice…

When my cousin and her hubby were here from the UK, they wanted to come here but it was so very crowded and we were told that we would have to wait for at least an hour for the food so we decided to go elsewhere.

We dropped by…

Nice House

…on Friday evening last week for dinner and there were just two or three other tables besides ours.

We were served very fast indeed and we had two of our usual favourites – their honey prawn balls (RM13.00)…

…and the bitter gourd fried with egg (RM9.00)…

For reasons unknown, unlike all the other places around town, they do not cook the vegetable with salted egg here but despite that, they do it really well and we certainly enjoy it everytime.

Being our no-meat Friday, this being the Season of Lent as well, we asked for the black pomfret/ikan bawal hitam (RM24.00)…

…or at least that was what it said in the menu but we were very sure that this was the very-much-more-expensive white pomfret/ikan bawal putih

We asked for it to be deep-fried and served plain like that so as to ensure that they did not add any sauce, not even soy sauce, in case they used anything that would render it not gluten-free and because it was so very fresh, it was very nice and we sure enjoyed it to the max.

By the time we were almost done, more and more people came in, many of them celebrating their birthdays, and it got more and more noisy. Thank goodness we had finished eating and did not have to stay much longer…

  1. All the dishes are to my liking. More towards homecooked food. Bittergourd fried with chix egg or salted egg, both I like.

    As the name implies, the food here is nice.

  2. I like the honey prawn ball and the fish as me don’t take bittergourd…

    I’ve noticed from the photos in your blog of what you eat from day to day that you hardly eat any vegetables.

  3. Very good looking food and I’m sure they taste good as well.

    Never fails to please, this place! Not a fan of the crowd and the noise though. 😦

  4. Buttergourds with egg or salted egg tasted good to me. For added taste, they add black beans in it.

    The prawn balls, my favourite.

    Yes, I’ve seen that…or they fry with tau cheo, fermented beans. Nice too.

  5. That’s a cool emblem. I’m yet to acquire a taste for bitter gourd.

    That was the glass on their door…to the washrooms! 😀 I thought it was a dog, something for Chinese New Year but it did not quite look like it, just something on the glass they used for the door. This was the back, gold colour on the other side.

  6. food looks tasty – i’d like to see a bitter gourd platter cooked with three eggs – regular, salted and century! 😀

    They only do it this way here. Had another type of vegetable with the three types of eggs, yesterday’s post. That was good too.

  7. I’d like to have the pomfret all to myself hee..hee..

    White pomfret, RM24 only, so cheap! I bought one big one, maybe twice the size a month or more before Chinese New Year and paid a whopping RM68.00 and that was before cooking – had to clean it myself too. Heard that it went up to over RM100 a kg as Chinese New Year drew closer. 😦

  8. Oh my goodness, the dishes are good and especially so with these prices! Good choice!

    Not bad! Not bad! One of those places in town that we would patronise frequently.

  9. Bitter gourd with egg, my favourite. I am surprised that Ayden loves it too.

    Bitter gourd is not bitter anymore these days, nice and crunchy. My girl would not touch it before, now she loves it!
